Handling redundancies...

Closing and closure- handling redundancies

Have seen someone whose employer closed the organisation two weeks ago, with everyone redundant. And yes, of course she has a job to go to. The really important message for anyone who is doing the same thing to their staff was this... personalise your thanks and farewell. The Board were so fixated on getting through the close down that at the…

Staffing X Factors - As The Times Change So Do We

X - it's a variable that leads to multiple scenarios.  In math x is the number or goal we are trying to uncover to lead to the balance of the equation, in life x is often the hurdle or problem, solution or scenario that gives life it's most interesting choices, options and sometimes leads us to do more research to look at past variables, and similar scenarios to uncover what may need to be done.  In old pirate films, and The Pirates of The Caribbean or in popular culture, x marks the spot -…

Quality Over Quantity in Social Media

Its easy to put numbers ahead of quality in social media. Its natural to add people to your contact lists when its as easy as a click of a button, or a quick e-mail. Many recruitment agencies judge you based on the number of contacts you have on your LinkedIn page. Its understandable. But I believe the recruiter with 50 contacts-- people they have well-established professional and friendly relationships with--is more valuable than the one with 500 loosely affiliated connections. I think the…

Reporting, and matrices a hidden land mine!!

Reporting, and matrices a hidden land mine!!


I have done several postings on reporting and on matrices. In all of them I stress the importance of not using the stats alone to make decisions. The reason for that is because stats alone do not tell you the whole story. It is imperative you understand the WHY’s behind the numbers. If not you will fall into the hidden land mind that these reports and matrices create. You will make choices based on half…

Sectors are rising and falling more than any historical average, we have no known correlation anymore between the economy and jobs due to technical productivity gains, globalization, and of course the debt…

‘What words spring to mind when you think of a salesperson?’

When you think of a "salesperson", what is the association that springs to mind? Perhaps frustration, thinking of that annoyingly persistent individual at a shop, harassing you to add more products and services to your shopping basket? Maybe it's someone calling round at an inconvenient time to solicit window cleaning? These are better known as "transactional salespeople" and are the opposite of what a good business-to-business salesperson does.

Employers and recruiters are aware that hiring an applicant with a criminal or civil background or who has falsified credentials may carry enormous legal thus a large economic loss.  To avoid this, employers and recruiters are relying on pre-employment background screening.  This makes sense because pre-employment background promotes a safe and more profitable workplace by protecting the employer form negligent hiring litigation, incidents of harassment or workplace…
