Remote working: Managing the communication chaos

WeirdlyHub

A few years back, we went 100% remote. Since then, we’ve grown (literally and figuratively), our needs have changed and we’ve found a kind of equilibrium – a balance between remote and not-remote, that works (so far) for the job functions and personalities we have onboard.

What are organisational values, really? Examples from companies who walk their talk

WeirdlyHub

“The best companies take their core values to heart, challenging themselves every day to ensure they are truly living their values. Likewise, the companies that have core values, but don’t focus on them, often find themselves struggling financially and culturally.”

5 prime ministers in 5 years. Bad culture will eat you from the inside.

WeirdlyHub

What is this magic! 15sec video interviews at the front of your recruitment process?!

WeirdlyHub

You are not in ‘recruitment’. You are in ‘rejection’.

Greg Savage

Which industry disappoints a higher percentage of customers than ours? We think of ourselves as ‘recruiters’ but what is the ratio of candidates we actually do recruit into roles, compared to the number we screen, interview, or even submit?

Recession. Are you vulnerable?

Greg Savage

I ask all my clients to consider this question at Board level. And it always shocks them. What would happen if our permanent Gross Profit (Net fees) dropped by 50%, and temporary/contract GP by 25%? And the drop occurred in a month and did not recover for two years. Would we survive?”

The length of your life is not as important as exploring its full width.

Greg Savage

My life??? 1958 – 2043. That’s what my tombstone will say. If the Shiraz does not get me sooner, and I last that long. It could easily say 1958 – 2018. Although I sincerely hope not!) But that’s the point. The dates themselves are not that important, as long as they are a reasonable span […].

Greg Savage
