Whilst there are numerous technological advances throughout our industry mistakes are made if we ignore the human element which impact on candidates and the company’s reputation.

Assessing a potential employee fit is the not the same as ‘matching skills and experience’ from a CV. For me, understanding your culture is one of the key elements of implementing a recruitment strategy. Matching candidates to client requirements regarding brief, values and culture includes

  1. Communicating values
  2. Asking behaviour related questions
  3. Involving other key personnel
  4. Experiencing the environment beyond the meeting room

I am proud to say this approach works for us and is the reason why customers come back to us when they are looking to make a hire.
