HR is not an add-on function

An acquaintance called a few days back to inform that they had recently started their own business and wanted to know if we could help them with recruiting & HRO.

We had a preliminary meeting where the couple ( the acquaintance & her spouse) insisted that they were in a tearing hurry and wanted everything related to HR done up in 30 days, so that they could focus on business thereafter. They wanted everything to be automated so that right from the day a new employee joined,…

Interviewing In your best Dash Fashions

In an age where the millennial generation wants to practically wear their PJs to work how often do recruiters consider the outer appearance of candidates?
