Do you remember the bad old days? The days when if you worked in recruitment you were a humble Head Hunter.
All you had to do was find the right head and match them to the right role at the right price.
Well, thankfully, those bad old days are over. Now we have entered better times where those who work in recruitment are no longer a simple Head Hunter. You, my friend, are a Heart Hunter.
What has changed over time is a profound societal shift in focus from pure “ambition” (your candidate’s goals, achievements, status, possessions) to “meaning” (your candidate’s fulfilment, joy, purpose and happiness).
Maybe it was the GFC.
Maybe it was the connectivity of the internet.
Or maybe we all collectively woke up to the fact that more “stuff” won’t fill an empty life.
As a consequence, if you are working in recruitment today and not winning the hearts of candidates and even your fellow employees, there is little chance their head will follow.
This is why world leading recruitment companies like Robert Half have invested in workplace giving. Their program, called Time to Give, empowers their staff to donate their Time (team volunteering), Talent (skilled volunteering) or Treasure (donating) to help support over 1500 charities and also share their stories of doing good.
In addition to working with Robert Half, GoodCompany are fortunate to work with some major brands including IAG, OPTUS, Flight Centre, ANZ, Reece, AGL, MYOB and many more Employers of Choice, engaging their staff by engaging with the community.
Indeed, giving back is not just important for staff engagement but also for staff attraction and retention.
