Get The Edge When Competing For Talent

on Wednesday, 20 January 2016. Posted in Our News, Recruitment News

New Year Resolutions, deferred recruiting and staff resignations all combine to create "the perfect recruitment storm" in the first quarter

Get The Edge When Competing For Talent

Welcome back. You've just got your feet under your desk and a key staff member asks you to be a referee as they have just accepted a new job pending your reference.

What now? You have to jump into recruiting an equally capable replacement just to maintain numbers and you will be competing against every employer who waited until January to launch their recruitment campaign (this is a seasonal trend and happens year after year).

Will it happen to recruitment? Yes it will, but not when it matters and here's why....

Brand Loyalty and Broken Trust

on Monday, 28 September 2015. Posted in Our News, Recruitment News

A globally respected brand has an epic fall from grace

Brand Loyalty and Broken Trust

A global company and strong brand has just taken a major hit to its loyalty...and I mean a MAJOR HIT!
