The Top 5 Recruitment Blog Posts: October 2017

If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, then you’ll know that we take a great deal of time curating and sharing some of the best content we find on a daily basis.

Of course, most of us are so busy with our day jobs that it’s impossible to keep on top of all of them.

So I had a thought the other day… why not do a regular recruitment round-up of the best blogs we’ve come across, each month?

So, that’s what we’re doing.

Drum roll please!

So, we’ve got a fantastic round up of October’s best blogs (in our opinion) and you’re in for a real treat.

These blogs have consistently provided great information about recruitment this month. I highly recommend having a browse.

It’s only human to care about your employees. Especially if you’ve spent a long time at a company and worked your way through the ranks.

Of course, this can make things really difficult when it comes to negative feedback, disciplinary procedures and of course in the worst case scenario, letting people go.

So if you find yourself in such a (horrible) position, it’s important to do things right and try and end things on a positive note.

This blog post from The Daily Muse will help you to do just that.

We had to include at least one Halloween blog post — it’s October after all. And Social Talent really made this one stand out for us!

Even if you’re not going to do them, it’s fun to imagine, anyway.

Too often these days, people focus so much on their own personal development and forget how to work with others.

And it’s not often that you come across a sincere post about working as a collective, rather than singularly.

Entrepreneur really hit the nail on the head with this post though, clearing out the cobwebs with 10 steps to cultivate team cohesion.
