This Week in Talent (1st December)

This week in talent - 1st December 2022

Guess who’s back … back again. Shady’s back (me – I’m Shady). Tell a friend. Guess who’s back guess who’s back guess who’s back Nah nah nah uh nah uh nah uh nah …

Ya gal Jodizzle is back, coming to you for the next few weeks as we enter the busiest, grossest, funnest, silliest month of the year … December!

Pop your hand up if you’re crawling, clawing and scraping your way to that sweet end of year break? 🙋🏼‍♀️Every year I promise myself it’ll be different, and every year I end up getting to December a burnt-out husk (all of my own doing, might I add).

This year has been massive for me. I’ve tried about 15,000 new hobbies, re-kicked off my side hustle (Career Stuff), worked on some flippin’ awesome projects and met some flippin’ awesome people.

Now it’s time to start planning for next year. What is 2023 bringing for you and your talent teams? Have you booked your end of year reflections, and new year kick-off events? Have you started preparing your hiring managers to expect a down-turn in quality and number of applicants over December/January (or maybe you haven’t because you find that a good time to recruit?) Have you been looking at 2023 trends and mentally started preparing your teams for whatever the next big Great <insert scary work word here> is?

Here are some articles to get you thinking and help with the end of year wrap up and new year prep! If you haven’t started, get started! As my mum always says – gotta remember the 6 P’s … Prior Preparation Prevents P*ss Poor Performance 💁🏼‍♀️
