Terry Hillier, People Group CEO, gives his view.
You hear the phrase unchartered territory so often that it has lost its meaning. It’s moving into a place where you’ve never been before. Where the normal rules no longer apply and everything you previously relied on is shaky at best. And regardless of what anybody says, nobody actually knows what happens next. Only on Monday night the Prime Minister announced the biggest lock down since the second world war. Massive, life-changing news is a daily occurrence. We’re all worried about our health, our loved ones, our businesses and our colleagues. Unchartered is scary.
Particularly for recruitment businesses. Recruitment has always been a double-edged sword. When times are good, recruitment’s great. But when times are bad, recruitment’s horrible. And there’s no script for our current situation. What can you do to get through this and come out the other side?
