Rachel Cobb, Recruitment Director for Red Frog Events, urges human resources professionals to be creative. Don’t just think outside of the box, throw the whole box away. Go back to the basics and recognize people as more than just workers. Recruiting and hiring should follow the same principle. Try to get a glimpse of who that prospective employee is beyond just their resume and professional experience, so you can better judge if they’ll be a good fit for your organization. Red Frog is a great example. They have a 100 percent retention rate.

Rachel Cobb spoke at the September 2012 Talent Conference hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Continuing Education. Stay tuned for 2013 conference information. To learn more about our Human Resources programming, visit www.sce-hr.uwm.edu.
