HR vs Recruiting

In the past is seems that most of the time HR and Recruiting have been separate entities with vastly different goals. Now that companies are streamlining departments and cross training employees, I am finding more and more instances where HR and Recruiting are being combined into one department with a joint function. Even in our company, the outsourced Recruiting and the outsourced HR divisions have been combined to form just one Managed Services Department.

What do you think of this trend... care to comment on the good, the bad and the ugly? Can we really ALL just get along?
