Welcome to the HR Headmistress’ Shop - probably the most practical employment advice in the UK
Build Your Dream Team
In Business you are who you recruit
If you only recruit “Paretos” (the 20% of employees, you spend 80% of your time managing) you will lose to the competition. If you recruit average performers you will do OK but it will always be an effort. You won’t fly. But if you recruit an A team you’ll have what you need to make your business dreams come true.
In her latest book, Russell HR Consulting Managing Director, Kate Russell, explains how she has researched and brought together some of the most effective processes for sourcing, attracting and recruiting talent. Recruiting the right staff into your team is the most important responsibility of any manager. Fewer than 50% of UK firms do not have a formal recruitment strategy and only one in eight managers have been trained on interviewing and hiring process. With more than four in five employers struggling to attract the right talent, the advice in ‘Build Your Dream Team’ is aimed at SMEs, taking the best practice from the greatest employers and showing how implementing recruitment process in your business will pay huge dividends.
