Employees Stay Put

15 May 2011 | by Michelle Scott

I’m hearing more and more of my candidates tell me they intend to stay put in their current jobs because of concerns about job security even though there are opportunities out there. Most have no plans to change employers in the foreseeable future fearing they will become victims of last in, first out syndrome if their new employer is subsequently forced into a cost cutting exercise. If this scenario applies to you then please call us for a confidential career crossroads session with one of our experienced consultants or visit … Continue reading


A Message For Spring

1 February 2011 | by Michelle Scott

It’s clear that the perceived poor state of the labour market is acting like a dam holding back the normal flow of talent. Once job opportunities increase, however, dissatisfied employees will vote with their feet and leave, making it important for employers not to take the loyalty of their people for granted. Employers need to be careful to avoid complacency. The recession may keep their best people with them for now, but they need to take the time to focus on building employee engagement by providing employees with clarity around … Continue reading

Speed Networking – The Business Club West Herts

29 July 2010 | by Asset Resourcing

Great speed networking session last night. I was filling in for Adam at this The Business Club – West Herts event and really benefitted from this quarterly fixture on their calendar.

Dealing With Flu

20 July 2010 | by Ben Sweeting

Whilst we have only had one temp fall ill with swine flu so far I thought it prudent to do a little research into what you guys should be doing to prevent further outbreaks in your offices.  It’s just practical steps we can all take to maintain business continuity within our businesses and those of our clients, thus preventing exposing any part of the workforce to increased risk of infection and illness. Prevention To reduce the risk of catching or spreading the virus everyone should: cover their mouth and nose when … Continue reading

New Year Quote

Interesting Times

26 November 2009 | by Ben Sweeting

Interesting times. In fact, fascinating times from an Economic point of view. The newspapers will no doubt continue to be filled with doom and gloom for a while to come yet and there will no doubt be casualties out there with redundancies and companies going in to liquidation. However, the more I think about it the more I believe this represents a real opportunity for us. We will need to be focussed on what we do and commercial about who we do it with. I believe that there are more … Continue reading


Our Message To Candidates

21 November 2009 | by Michelle Scott

All work and no play at the moment. It’s my Birthday, but no sooner are the presents unwrapped than I’m back in work mode and keen to get my thoughts on the blog. We need to be our usual sensitive selves right now as many of our Clients will be nervous and some may be quite downbeat. There is plenty to be upbeat about so we must be the positive voice in amongst the grumbling crowds. Most people will prefer to do business with those talking positively rather than being … Continue reading


Elite Networking Events

10 November 2009 | by Ben Sweeting

Understandably, recent Elite networking events have centred on the current challenging market we find ourselves operating in. Those who’ve been through this before are almost exclusively stronger for it and the reasons why become obvious when you think about it. On the face of it every bit of economic news coming at us is negative. However, we remain extremely upbeat for the following reasons: If Unemployment is rising (which it is) then more Candidates are available and Clients can choose more from a range of possible talent rather than having … Continue reading
