This week in Talent (26th May)

Howdy partners!

WELL, what a week … what a weeeeeeeeeek! So much has happened, where do we start?

We have a new Federal Government! It almost feels surreal. I’m waiting to see what sort of changes are going to happen that might affect the talent community (hopefully in a good way).

My team is also finally a full complement. I just finished recruiting, and I have some absolute superstars that have just started within the team and one that is starting in a few weeks’ time. This is such a relief for me – now I can focus on other things rather than trying to lead and strategise whilst getting stuck in the weeds of BAU recruitment. I love recruitment, but it’s just not possible to do it all and not have a menty b.

Something I really enjoyed reading this week is this article about how new home design might change in the near ‘post-pandemic’ future.

If you have a couple of cheeky million bazillion dollars and are looking into designing your new home … check it out!

Have a good week and stay #health and #zen!
