Over three days some of the leading practitioners and thought leaders of the global recruitment industry took part in masterclasses and listened to keynote sessions. There was even an unconference breakout session in which some of our friends from the TruLondon series of events successfully gave many attendees their first taste of a very different style of learning and knowledge sharing.
The conference started with 5 bold pledges for the next 5 years from the global staffing industry…
- Support 280m people in their working life
- Help 75m young people enter the labour market
- Up skill 65m people to help give them greater work choices
- Create 18m more jobs
- Serve 13m more companies with the right talent to succeed
With the overriding message being ‘a job for every person; a person for every job’
The main sessions that we attended were very much around the future of employment (an excellent keynote delivered by Professor Lynda Gratton), the current trends and developments in global recruitment, and a look at the current problems around unemployment and underemployment.
Here are seven things we heard that got us thinking… Continue reading “Seven Key Messages From CIETT 2012” »

Last week we joined nearly 70 HR practitioners and consultants at the fourth ConnectingHR Unconference in London. The topic for this event was ‘HR and the Socially Connected Organisation’ and the day was split into three distinct parts:
- A series of short, 7 minute presentations (pecha kuchas) around some of the topics that help make up the wider conversations around social connectivity and companies
- Small group discussions inspired by the presentations (with the groups chopping and changing every few minutes to keep the conversations flowing and fresh) which led to the creation of a series of topics to be debated and explored
- The unconference, at which these topics were duly debated and explored!
It made for a series of lively discussions, with the content wide ranging and touching at the very heart of what makes our organisations tick. Some of the key questions raised were:
- How do you get the company to trust the people?
- Social media must not replace face to face
- How to influence the people who don’t believe social networking is a great tool.
- Do I want to live my life in public?
- Can tools change culture? Or does culture change with new tools?
- Are these tools primarily for white collar ‘knowledge’ workers?
Here are four of our favourite discussions from the day:
Conversation is the new currency
This expression appeared in a presentation from ConnectingHR co-founder Gareth Jones and illustrates how the traditional ways of measuring, or assessing, employee engagement have changed. The annual survey led, statistic oriented approach that most workplaces favour are now too lifeless and rarely reflect day to day concerns of employees. It’s hard to get under the skin of what is discussed around the office water cooler and engagement can often measured far too late, after disaffection has set in. Social channels now allow the business (and HR in particular) to pick up the conversation and get an insight into the day to day concerns of the workforce.

On the afternoon of June 6th, we’ll be exhibiting at the Onrec Gravity Conference in London.
The conference will provide delegates with a totally new perspective on online recruiting through a unique range of strategies to help candidates gravitate to your company’s vacancies.
We’ll be at the conference and we’re particularly looking forward to the sessions on:
- Employer Branding – an alternative approach
- Return on Investment
- Where are candidates looking for vacancies?
- The Business of Social Recruiting
This event is relevant to employers involved in planning, implementing and running online recruitment strategies. HR directors, Managers, Personnel Managers, Consultants and Suppliers involved in the online recruitment process will all benefit from attending.
Discount for Jobsite clients and partners
If you haven’t already booked, we are pleased to offer our clients, contacts and partners, the opportunity to buy Gravity Conference tickets for just £100 each (plus VAT). That’s a saving of £25 per ticket.
We recently hosted the TedX Portsmouth learning event on Developing Human Potential. During the day we heard several leading speakers drawn from the coaching and leadership space enlighten us on performance and potential, how to inspire and encourage. Over the coming weeks we will be bringing you some of the sessions with the key learning points that we can take into our day to day business operations.
In this post we hear from executive and business coach, and sports psychologist, Sarah Fenwick, who three times broke World Records for Paragliding. She takes the familiar 5Ps of ‘planning and preparation prevent poor performance’ and turns it on its head! Believing that by preventing poor performance you’re only likely to achieve average performance Sarah has created her own 3 Ps – Purpose, Planning and Preparation Produce Peak Performance.
Here she gives us her take on getting peak performance – watch the inspiring video as Sarah talks us through the journey that led to her becoming the first person to break the elusive 100km paragliding barrier. She explains how she used the 3 Ps to make it happen…and looks at ways in which you can use them too…
Purpose and Passion
- Defining vision and goals
- What, when, where, how
- The journey – risks, options, what ifs
- To know you’ve done everything you can (because in paragliding if you get it wrong your life is at risk)
- To launch with confidence
- To maximise times of opportunity
- For when things might get out of control and you end up being outside your comfort zone Continue reading “The Three Ps of Peak Performance” »
