  • Get personal about performance while hiring

    The role of recruitment and taking on staff is without doubt one of the most important parts of business and yet something that is fraught with opportunities to get it all wrong. What I have come to realise is that it is often the obvious and seemingly small things that can trip you up. That one thing you rushed over or chose to ignore is the thing that spoils the party.
