Challenges for recruiters this Christmas

By | Candidate Experience, Recruitment, Remote Working, Uncategorized

Recruitment is a challenging industry at the best of times, but also one of the most rewarding.

The end of a normal year brings new challenges, when a lot of businesses and industries shut over the Christmas period. As this hasn’t been a normal year (to say the least), this could mean that there are less clients interested in filling roles or that your candidates are a little less responsive.

But don’t lose hope – although this year has been challenging enough, the issues you usually face over the holidays could actually be easier to overcome this year. Read More

How can your CRM system improve customer experience?

Have we lost the art of conversation?

By | Communications, Productivity, Uncategorized

The digital transformation has and continues to change the way in which we communicate with each other.

We use a wide range of channels to have our conversations, each with its pros and cons. I’m sure we’ve all interpreted a text message in a negative way when that certainly wasn’t the sender’s intention. Can we replace the phone call, where we are able to interpret inflection and intonation, with a quick IM?    

It can be easy to lose track of what we’ve said to who, when and on what platform. Notifications are easily dismissed making it surprisingly simple to forget to reply to that IM from Aunt Doris (that’s still all in capitals, even after many hours of Facebook Messenger tutorials). Are we forcing other generations to communicate in ways they may not even understand, just so they can have some kind of interaction with us? Are we reaching people on the channels that they feel most comfortable conversing in?
