We have some news to share
It's an online world and everything is in the cloud - including us!
It's 2017 and Palmerston North Personnel are a Manawatu business that runs in the cloud, with cloud-based recruitment resources supplied by leading edge recruitment developers.
The hunt for amazing talent is topical and requires the use of modern and effective tools. We use these tools for the benefit of our employers and employees, and we have some cool changes coming.
Thinking of hiring a staff member and ringing a few agencies? There is a better way.
Try partnering with one recruitment specialist instead!
Hiring an employee is about forming an enduring professional relationship – much like forming a personal relationship.
Which is higher quality and sets you up for longer lasting, mutually benefcial relationships?
Speed Date or Partnering?
We often speak to people from outside of Manawatu - this interests them
When choosing where to live, work, play or even invest, a little bit of research goes a long way. We are very lucky that our Central Economic Development Agency (CEDA) coordinate and share some of this for the region's benefit.
Here is something that really shows why people are escaping expensive metro locations (like Auckland and Tauranga) to move to Manawatu.
Economic Development is alive in Manawatu
Make great choices by learning from others' experience/knowledge
I have been lucky enough to get back from leave to a new destination where I knew no-one and had little local knowledge - think white sands, coral reefs, turtles and unknown restaurants, cafes and attractions and you'll understand.
Each day our group reviewed multiple restaurants and suppliers before choosing who to invest money and scarce time in and who to avoid...and we found a system that worked well for us.
It got me thinking how few Manawatu businesses are using these tools.
You no longer need to Google it, simply keep reading!
I'm getting the hang of blogging.
Some adverts work and others don't - why is that?
It's becoming more obvious every day - employment is booming in Manawatu
Not all recruiters are created equal
There is data - this is not just a feeling
We have recently been working with CEDA (and still have some great roles there for people who really love the economic development space), and are aware of some research CEDA had commissioned in 2016. Recently, I heard David Clapperton (CEO Horowhenua District Council) share whats happening in neighbouring Horowhenua.
It was pleasing to get an email today with data showing this Horowhenua trend too.
