My recruitment disaster! Why is it going wrong and how to avoid it…

29/06/2017

Why are my vacancies still vacant? The recruiter claims she’s an expert, so why does she need more of my valuable time? The next time you find yourself grumbling about the performance of your recruiter, think about how much you contributed to the poor recruitment process or shortlist that didn’t hit the mark. You have not succeeded in either choosing the right recruiter, or if you have, have you invested sufficient time in motivating him/her to make yours their overriding priority. Remember: 80% of people would take one job over another based on personal relationships formed during the interview process. (Source: Mattersight)

Don’t Use The Phrase “Disruptive Technology”– It Will Kill Your Product Launch

27/01/2017

Don’t Use The Phrase “Disruptive Technology”– It Will Kill Your Product Launch (Unless You Are Elon Musk!) I test drove a Tesla yesterday – I loved it! I am not really in the market for one, having recently acquired a BMW hybrid, but Tesla were kind enough to let me have the test drive anyway. I came away, not regretting the BMW, but thinking how can I get a Tesla in future? The technology was really something special, the finish excellent and the acceleration mind-boggling! The thing that is really amazing for me though, is the audaciousness of the concept; to completely revolutionise how large executive cars are powered.
