My post-COVID recruiting dream

Greg Savage

As an industry, and as individuals, we have never had a better chance to change what we don’t like. To slaughter sacred cows. Smash our outdated, self- inhibiting paradigms. To configure our futures. Who is going to stop us? Who is even looking?

Recruiters are being fired at the rate of 1 in 3!

Greg Savage

This is not good news. We knew it was happening, but the numbers are horrific. Latest research from Staffing Industry Metrics tells us exactly how many recruiters were fired in March, April and May this year. And its ugly, ugly, ugly.

Your Post-COVID Mantra. ‘Cash is Queen’.

Greg Savage

One thing every owner and manager of every recruitment company has learned (or re-learned recently) is this; ‘Cash is Queen’.

You can talk – but do you have anything to say?

Greg Savage

Every day I am asked, ‘what skill do I need during this crisis’? ‘Many‘, is the trite answer. But this one, for sure. To shine in this crisis, and the subsequent recovery, you must build a compelling narrative. And this skill has implications far beyond our current situation.

13 sacred ‘Agency Recruitment’ metrics. (You need them!).

Greg Savage

You can’t manage what you don’t measure’. 40 years of running recruitment businesses taught me that you need a dashboard of critical metrics. As we come out of the crisis, you must know what’s working and what is not. Opportunities will abound. But not for everybody.

Greg Savage

Recessions end This one will too. It will be a long, hard road, but we will recover. As a species. Economically. And the recruitment industry will bounce back too. I have been through five recessions.

In recruitment, everybody sells baby! Everybody.

Greg Savage

Recruiters. You CAN make placements in lockdown!

Greg Savage

The biggest mistake a recruiter can make right now is to retreat into their ‘cave’. I hear it all the time. “I I am going to sit this out”. A thousand times, no! You are not sitting anything out. You are diving in! Now is the time to be connecting and communicating and content-creating.
