Creative Recruitment – Presentation at the All Dorset Creative Cooperation Event

22 04 2010

For those interested, here are the notes from my talk on Creative Recruitment at todays All Dorset Creative Cooperation Event sponsored by Business Link.

Many of those who attended were small businesses and I noted three key themes:

  • Cashflow challenges can mean that it’s hard to know when it’s the right time to recruit and what to recruit for – collaboration/permanent staff/partners
  • Business owners struggle to identify tangible skills/experience required and tend to hire in their likeness and/or friends/family members
  • When recruiting many SMEs plan in the short term without factoring in their wider business (and exit) strategy

If you’re having challenges with your recruitment and would like some impartial advice on what to do, give us a call on 01202 853647.  We’re always happy to help.
