Chicken or egg?

What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Fortunately for us Debbie, the most recent BM family member, has pet chickens & brings delicious, REALLY fresh eggs into the office every few days. How many offices can say that?
Very simply, Debbie is a really ‘good egg’! She’s a ‘cracking’ consultant with over 20 years experience in our sector but that’s not what makes her a BM person.
What makes her right for the business is her personality, attitude towards work & essentially, her views on what’s important in life.
What comes first for you, personality & attitude or experience?
Naturally everyone focuses on relevant experience when recruiting. If you learnt a system or skill set though, why can’t your next employee IF they have the right approach?
So next time you write a job description, think about what ‘essential experience’ is essential. If you can be flexible, let your recruiters know & ensure they understand the key traits you need.
Internally, we recruit a person ‘type’. Someone who cares about our customers (candidates & clients), who can challenge, add value etc. Some of that can’t be taught but we ‘can’ teach our methods.
We work with great clients (& potential clients) on the subjects around recruitment & retention. Get in touch & we’ll help you find your ‘Debbie’.
