Why Recruiters dislike HR and vice versa

You are currently viewing Why Recruiters dislike HR and vice versa

There has always been a disconnect between HR and Recruiter even as the profession evolved.

On one side we have Sourcers and third party recruiters who have a hacker mentality who focus on bringing that purple squirrel, using the boolean search strings and social search tools. But on the other side we have HR and hiring managers who focus more on bringing those talents that will be a great culture fit for their organization.

What’s the reason for that disconnect? Is it lack of focus or lack of collaboration? Anyhow, this can negatively impact the whole hiring process in an organization and most of all it is can effect the ‘Quality of Hire’.

Well, watch India HR LIVE debate on
