What movie title best describes 2017 for you?
I think I’ll go with “Chaos Theory” – although I haven’t really seen the movie 😉
Your person of the year?
Very difficult to choose… I’m going to go with Hung Lee, he keeps inspiring me (and it seems every recruiter on the planet) this year with the newsletter he created!
Your favorite album from 2017?
I was a little late to discover this one but “This is acting” by Sia.
What are you most proud of this year?
Poland Sourcing Community that I manage, it has grown into a really big group that goes beyond anything I expected.
What HR tool or trend disappointed you the most in 2017?
I don’t really tend to have very high expectations, so I rarely get disappointed… which usually comes from how we use tools and not the tools themselves I think.
And what tool or trend really did live up to the hype?
I had a chance to try Hiretual’s AI sourcing tool and I was very sceptical at first, but I see great potential there. For recruiters who look for candidates with some online footprint, it’s a really interesting tool to check out.
Your favorite HR blog in 2017?
I like seeing new independent blog appear, just like yours! So I’ll have to say dinosaurswilldie.blog 🙂
And the best HR event this year?
I’m torn between SRD and SOSU. They both had a very different focus but both organised really well and I learned a lot!
Which GIF best describes your vision of HR 20 years from now?
It’s crazy how bad I am with gifs. I really tried to find one but after a half an hour I had to admit to failure…
What should HR professionals do differently next year?
I think they need to learn to share more. Share ideas with each others, share their experiences and learn from each other more. Right now they’re often afraid someone will “steal” their brilliant ideas 😉
What will be the “next big thing” in Recruiting?
Probably letting go of the idea of the “next big thing”… at least I hope so!
