Last month I spoke to a group of business owners. I introduced the 30 million strong Millennial Generation and they all sat back and crossed their arms. When I explained that they already owned a piece of their brand, many business owners guffaw and told me, “No, they don’t. Oh my God, they are so lazy and entitled, they just want their own way.”
Gone are the days…

I'll make this quick: Temp to Direct is a bad choice. It's a "we really want to hire someone, I think, but it would be great if we didn't have to make a firm decision - so let's roll a few unemployed people through here and see if someone knocks it out of the park."
Dear Client - here are your choices: Unemployed people who have no other choice or contractors who will happily "pretend" they "may" be interested in a full time role.
Contractors contract. … Continue

Lately I have been at home during the day more than I used to when I was running a global business. So I had the good fortune to actually meet the woman who cleans our house once a week. Prior to this, I had a vague understanding that we ‘had a cleaner’, but I took that service for granted, and certainly gave the person who cleaned up our mess little thought.
Well, I had a great long chat with ‘Rosie’ (lets call her that… Continue

Have you taken any calls recently from software providers? Calls where you’re promised the world if only you would switch from your existing software provider? The chances are that you’ve taken a few of these, and that’s a conservative estimate. For those of you who haven’t it begs the question, what exactly is cloud-based recruitment software, and how can it help SMEs?

Wouldn’t you want the X-men working for you?
Professor Charles Francis Xavier, the X-men’s founder, wanted people with that something “extra,” people whose special skills were manifest yet misunderstood. He built a tool to find these unique men and women. He broke down their skills, categorized them, and finally brought them together to maximize their potential.
Professor X was in… Continue

You’ve probably already heard (because I am a shameless birthday self-promoter) that I recently turned 39. THIRTY-NINE. I remember when that was old. Birthday celebrations at 39 are a bit different. No more hoping for the latest toy or new clothes, wondering who’s going to show up to my party. Now all I really want is some good wine and someone else to make dinner. I did something else June 6, and while it wasn’t necessarily a “gift”, I hope that it gave something valuable to… Continue

This is Day 11 of the journey from the point where I started from scratch. To be quite frank, I'm feeling a little wobbly and brain dead that the best thing I could come up with was a misleading title for this. I have no profound thoughts. I look back on this weeks activities and see no, as this guy at MRI used to say at all of the conferences, "nuggets of wisdom". I look back and see the metrics.
I mentioned one time before that we're, as headhunters (3rd party recruiters), NOT… Continue

Social media increases a company’s reach, gives the company a more personal feel, shares their brand and generates leads.
