Working From Home – The Impact On Recruitment

A lot has been written about working from home over the year and with all restrictions on the verge of being lifted, there is a lot of anticipation of the impact of the long-term impact of coronavirus, especially in regards to the working environment and how it will affect work.

It was reported today (17th June 2021) that the government is considering legislation to enshrine in law the right to work from home.

It has been extensively used by recruiters for several years (myself included) and is a great tool to get a feel for an individual, see what they are like and get an understanding of their fit and suitability for a particular role. However there are certain elements that an interviewee should be wary of – the points here are based on the numerous Skype interviews and experiences I have had over the years using Skype.

Is LinkedIn in Terminal Decline?

It was reported in the Financial Times on 30th April 2015 that LinkedIn’s results will not meet their anticipated revenues and that the value of the company has fallen by $8bn. LinkedIn also reported adjusted earnings for the year of $1.90 per share, considerably less than the $3.03 that had been anticipated.  Equally its net loss also increased compared to the similar quarter last year.  So is LinkedIn in terminal decline or is this just a temporary blip?


Continue or Curtail Content: Is A Bad Blog Better Than No Blog?

I was reminded by our Marketing and Social Media team member to write my blog for inclusion on the Premier Consultants website. I told her that in fact I had indeed written two pieces for it but didn’t think they were particularly good or of interest, so hadn’t published them!
