Introducing the first in our series of video top tips on recruiting in the 21st century

By August 4, 2016 No Comments

If you’re a regular reader of the Southerly blog then you’ll remember that we hosted a panel debate back in May which investigated the nature of recruitment in the 21st century, with panellists and audience members alike assessing whether they believe the role of the recruitment agent will become redundant in the near future.

After the debate, we asked each of our panel members to share a few top tips relating to their particular area of expertise, which we’ve turned into short videos.

The first of these comes from our very own CEO, Shelley Hoppe, who offers insights into how companies can secure the best talent when recruiting, the importance of appealing to the right people and why it pays to present an honest and accurate employer brand when seeking fresh blood.

Click on the video below to hear her advice, and keep an eye out over the next few weeks for more tips from our other panellists:

Joe Wiggins, Head of Communications (Europe), Glassdoor , on how to develop passionate employee advocates

Laura Wigley, Talent and Learning Director, Dorchester Collection, on the cost saving benefits of social media recruitment

Neil Dickins, Director, Intellectual Capital Resources, on the value of using a specialist recruiter

Angela Hood, CEO, ThisWay Global, on recruiting a diverse workforce

We’ll be hosting the second event in our 21st Century Recruitment series later in the year, so stay tuned for more information and details of how to get your tickets.
