Google didn't purely launch Chrome to win browser market share but to force other browsers to innovate and innovate fast. By doing so it allowed Google to unleash yet more products into the market! Very smart and so far proving to be very successful. So how does this help TribePad and the recruitment industry?
This is more of an open question than an answer. Maybe a track for someone at TRU London?
If for example you are a media platform, trying to change the model from the old classified model to a performance based model does it make sense to hire sales people from the businesses you are trying to disrupt? If you hire enough of them won't you end up with replicating a similar culture?
Or is it simply that the buyer is still the same and that's what matters. The classified sales people know who they need to sell to and how to get past the same old gatekeepers and in reality a salesperson can sell whatever they are given (assume same industry different package).
It's more of a question for recruiters really but someone once told me that it's the quality of the questions you ask that matter rather than the answers you give!
Companies compete for talent at different levels. Rarely do similar companies hiring for similar positions agree to work together.
We’re betting that it’s a good thing to do. Last week we launched a project called Make IT in Ireland (www.makeitinireland.com), a website and social media campaign to showcase the careers and companies in Ireland’s tech sector.
Twitter, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Symantec, Intel and Oracle are the companies behind it. All of them are hiring in Ireland.
Why did they do it?
To increase the size and quality of the local talent pool!

Is the CEO focused on growth or survival?

It really is conference week for HR and Recruitment. Monday I was at TRU London, Tuesday I was at the Mobile Recruitment Conference and Thursday and Friday it's HR Tech which looks like will be the monster of all events.
In amongst a digital revolution, new in-store signage and refreshing all stores, growth still requires the right people, in the right place, at the right time. That's why Tesco are putting 8,000 extra staff into stores.
Being able to attract and hire the right people is the difference between success and failure.
