This isn’t my first rodeo by the way, I recruited for the banks in 2008.
My day job is to match talent to opportunity. Capability with Need… to do this I talk to lot of people about their business, their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. I pick up information from a broad variety of trusted sources all day every day. Relationship driven recruitment partners are in a unique position – taking the temperature of the economy, from the horse’s mouth, day in day out.
I wanted to share what I have found when speaking to my clients and contacts over the past fortnight: Firstly, most people I am speaking to are either well, or only experiencing mild symptoms of COVID-19. Good news. Secondly, we’re all in this together and need to support each other. I got grumpy and a bit negative earlier this week. It didn’t help anyone, least of all me.
