Just a few things …
–On wasting time.
—The Irvine Company, a large California landowner, is moving recruiting systems, from Ceridian to VirtualEdge.
–Eddie Bauer has Spencer Stuart searching for a CEO. Eddie’s also actively recruiting new senior-level and mid-level managers. The Gap’s aggressively looking for creative talent, externally.
–Crain, publisher of an award-winning HR magazine/website but not known for having the sexiest job site, is apparently changing things. Crain now has an applicant tracking system.
–Recruiting stars Steve Orzeck and Sherri Bliss, formerly of PacifiCare, which was later bought by United, have landed with Helio. I had lunch with them today; watch for them to institute a host of new recruiting programs at this fast-growing iPhone competitor.
