ScaleUp Radio

Feb 14, 2022

On this episode of ScaleUp Radio we have a presentation and discussion for you.


This time, we are looking at Recruitment, or Hiring, within your business. It’s a subject that so many business owners *think* they understand, but then end up getting burned when they arrive at the point of taking on the first member of their team.


So, what we have in this episode is a presentation, which will cover:


 - Just how much a ‘bad hire’ can affect the business, and how long that effect can last

 - What it means to ‘Always Be Recruiting’ - what does that look like? What is a ‘People Bank’?

 - When does it make sense to go from outsourcing to recruitment; to actually take someone in as staff?

 - The power of referrals, and whether or not you should be using recruitment agencies


Within the presentation, you’ll also hear from David Lynes from Unique IQ who talks about the process he uses when it comes to recruiting, and why, if you see him on LinkedIn, he will constantly have the phrase ‘We’re Hiring’ on his profile.


Following the presentation, there is a panel discussion with a group of business owners around the subject of recruitment, looking specifically at the idea of ‘Always Be Recruiting’, and they will share their experiences, thoughts and lessons surrounding that subject.


One of the things to point out is that we really only touch on one particular aspect of recruiting for your business. Don’t worry, though, we’ll be looking at other areas in future episodes of ScaleUp Radio. 


As always, there is an awful lot of value in this episode; no matter what industry you’re in, or where you are on your scale up journey.

Louise Blunt - BizSmart


Himmat Rai - Sentinel Safety


Steve Bradstock - First Base Solutions


David Lynes - Unique IQ
