Unprecedented levels of recruitment activity here at BW this autumn as a result of some networking, some raising of the old digital profile, an email "blast" and some very nice referrals from satisfied clients! Contrary to the media portrayal of the economy we, at least for now, are busier than ever!
One day I am going to write a book "You would not believe the things that happen in recruitment!" detailing some of the amazing events and situations that occur in this most beguiling and sometimes unpredictable profession.
I visited the autumn Interior Trade shows recently - 100% Design and Decorex. Great chance to see some of the products that my clients and candidates sell and keep up to date with the trends. (Nice opportunity to gently re-acquaint with some industry folks too!).
I was very taken with the new YO! Home concept. At 100% Design you could get into a full size working version; and experience exactly how it works.

I do wonder where the cat might end up though!
I have just been on a great days training on the use of Social Media (SM) by Warren Kemp of Recruitment Matters.
He covered many aspects of this fast moving discipline in his usual informative yet entertaining style.
Several points came out relating to the impact SM can have on any business. Here they are:
1. Do your staff say things on their Facebook or Twitter pages that mention your business? If so are they "on message", or are they making negative comments?
