HRE announces best HR ideas for 2009

Recently Human Resource Executive posted their Best HR Ideas for 2009 winners. Among the topics (benefits, HR tech, talent management, and T&D) they highlight some pretty interesting examples related to recruitment and assessment. Here's a sample:

- AlliedBarton Security Services gathered productivity data and discovered many managers were leaving at the peak of their productivity; this allowed them to focus additional resources on targeted retention efforts

- US Cellular uses web-based meeting technology to allow hiring supervisors to communicate about their candidates, ensuring more consistency and enhancing communication

- Proctor and Gamble, working with DDI, moved their cognitive ability testing online and made them adaptive

- SITA developed a leadership development portal where employees can literally "gauge" their competencies and receive targeted instruction

- BPO firm iQor created an online test designed to measure "emotional, intellectual, and conversational skills", reducing the need for interviews, increasing productivity, and reducing turnover
