Am I being paid what I am worth?

 

How do I stack up to my peers?

 

As Human Resources and Recruiting professionals, it is understood that we must be aware of the salary ranges and restrictions put on positions and levels we are responsible for! While at the same time, we may often neglect to understand our own worth and how well we fare within our own functional areas as it relates to our peers.

Today, Sheila Greco Associates released the 2012 Human Resources & Corporate Recruiting  Compensation Survey.

As compilers of information we recently interviewed over 210 human resources and recruiting professionals to ensure the accuracy of the report. Salaries may vary depending upon industry, location and experience.

Corporate Recruiters:

Corporate Recruiter – $40,000- $70,000. The main differential is the number of years of experience. *Consulting and Financial Services Industries have paid recruiters as high as $120,000.

Corporate Recruiter/Talent Acquisition Manager -  $50,000- $120,000. Many interviewed stated that this level was hit the hardest with decreases over the last few years.

Director of Recruiting/ Talent Acquisition Director – $75,000- $175,000. The Director Title is found many times  in larger organizations.

Recruiting Leader/Talent Acquisition Leader /Vice President level -  $135,000-$300,000 (above the director level). Huge range but none the less there were about 7% of those interviewed right around the $300,000 level.

Human Resources:

Human Resources Manager – $40,000 -$77,000.

Human Resources Director – $60,000 (very few)- $130,000. There were a few earning $150,000. Most were at large organizations.

Human Resources Vice President – $105,000- $170,000. Please note 11% were around the $200,000 range.

Chief Human Resources Leader/Senior (Executive) Vice President – $180,000-$250,000. This is just salary it is not total compensation. There are a few professionals earning a base of $325,000 and beyond. Not many but some.

This study was conducted in July 2012 and released in August. This information is based on telephone interviews professionals in recruiting and human resources.

Incorporating Customized Competitive Intelligence Into Your Recruiting Strategy Makes A Lot Of Sense

 

Competitive Intelligence Helps With Making Intelligent Hiring Decisions!

Incorporating Customized Competitive Intelligence Into Your Recruiting Strategy Makes A Lot Of Sense. When it comes to sourcing hard to find talent, the easiest way to do so is to conduct competitive intelligence on your competitors and the companies on the target list. Having data on the available talent can and does help with making solid recruiting decisions.

Let me compare it to handicapping. Handicappers base their decisions on data. Many start by taking a look at the talent of each horse and compare it to the competition. When they place their bet, or choose their top pick, they are confident they have chosen the best horse in the race based upon information to include individual talent, facts and statistics. Shouldn’t recruiters be doing this too?

Think about it. Recruiters will take any edge they are given, so give them this edge. We all need it in order to recruit top talent EVERYONE wants and needs.  Having access to the potential talent pool, facts, data, and statistics, will in turn w give them the ability to reach the best of breed talent before the competition does. Competitive Intelligence requires upfront work, but long-term it cannot be beat! Knowledge is Power!

As I speak with clients and others regarding recruiting and current recruiting strategies, it is mind-boggling to me to think that hires are made without knowledge and data. As I walk them through the process and speak about the benefits of combining the two in the recruiting process, they begin to see the many benefits. I ask them, with your current recruiting strategy and process do you feel confident that the best candidate was chosen if there isn’t data to back it up? What are your thoughts?

Incorporating Customized Competitive Intelligence Into Your Recruiting Strategy saves time, money and the overall return on investment to the company is priceless.

Just wanted to give you something to think about over the weekend!

Organization Mapping – A Great Way To Learn About The Competition And Be Aware Of The Talent

Where Is The Talent? Who Is On The Team?

The Latest Trend Reveals Much Needed & Wanted Information

There are tools such as SGA  ExecutiveTracker,  LinkedIn, Google,  Passive Candidate Research, Social Networking and niche ones that assist with peeling back the onion, but the best way to Map an Organziation and capture this information is by speaking with people on the inside and those in the “know.”

Mapping competitors, best of breed organizations and back yard warriors are super hot right now. Organization Mapping provides a cross functional picture of an organization. Pictures speak in volumes (organization charts) and can help with making recruiting decisions, talent management strategic planning and is widely used for competitive intelligence purposes. Today, smart companies are moving toward strategically aligning recruiting with competitive intelligence teams. Should you be doing the same? Or have you been using recruiting as a way to gain information about your competitors for quite some time. If you have you are not alone.

Where Is The Talent

Organization Mapping  shows how  the target companies are organized, where the teams fit within the organization, the size,  unique titles, if there are any,  and much more.

Who Is On The Team?

Now you know where the team is, you want to know about the players.   You want to know who are the stars on the team, their backgrounds, education, years with the company, diversity, greatest accomplishments. What you can do with this information can be endless! Can this help with current & future challenges!

Building competitiveness these days requires more than just your brand name, your product/services, and customer service just to name a few. It’s about talent too. You need the right people, doing the right things! You need the best talent on the market. You need superstars. As you continue to build your teams you need to be aware of who is out there. We have heard the phrase, “people are our company’s greatest asset,”  I agree! There is a lot of truth to this, but  I sometimes wonder if companies really mean this and believe enough in this that as they recruit they sincerely look to hire the best available.  If you believe in this you need information that helps get you there. Please read this interesting article written by Jennifer Blanchard | HRTools.com Business Writer.

Organization Mapping is the current trend. I believe in it and can see the value it has.  Be in the know! Know your competitors, know the talent and create the strongest team you can so you can win!!! Having top talent on the team creates at a minimum competitive teams and often times winning ones! But you can only do this if you are aware of the best players out there.
