It’s that time of year where we prepare for our year ahead, and start getting bombarded with 2022 recruitment predictions, trends and forecasts! Not sure about you, but some things are putting the fear of god into me. Some trends are fun, but some are seriously depressing (aka … ongoing talent shortages, the Great Resignation, the Great Reshuffle). If you haven’t had a read yet – check out Kevin Wheeler’s 2022 trend predictions here.

I would love to chat to anyone who has exciting, ambitious plans for the year ahead. Maybe you’re increasing your head count to incorporate the huge search and attraction efforts that will take place this year, maybe you’re actually downsizing and relying more on agencies to assist you with resourcing?

SO … I’ll obviously share all the insightful, fun and exciting things I discover that might make your life a bit more zen as well.

Enjoy the rest of your week, and the article selection curated for you below 😊
