James Colino

There has never been a more difficult time to lead a Talent Acquisition function. Recruiting leaders are challenged daily to streamline processes, deploy technology, and leverage data in more ways than ever before.

Fortunately, recruiting leaders can make massive improvements to their function and drive transformation through a modern practice that is just beginning to take shape in some of the most progressive organizations around the world.

This practice is called RecOps.

In this industry-first introduction to RecOps, James Colino guides HR and recruiting leaders through the steps of how to build a practice in any organization. You’ll learn the skills necessary to do RecOps and discover the importance of mission, vision, and strategy in setting the stage for transformation.

With RecOps, you’ll identify what’s broken in your hiring process and fix it using proven techniques that will help you hire better talent faster, at a lower cost, and with a better experience.

If you need to improve any aspect of your recruiting function, this book will get you jazzed up to do it!

Talent acquisition is a strategic driver of every business, and yet many companies struggle to make it work. This book provides the link between strategy and recruiting transformation in an easy-to-read format. James lays out a framework for RecOps and an action plan that any leader can use to pursue recruiting excellence. I predict this book will be the catalyst (and bible) for a new industry centered around the practice of recruiting optimization.
