  • Help! The Consultants have left the building!

    Posted 17th April 2014 by Jon White

    A visit from a consultant can often leave a company with a long to-do list, and staff short on time. As a result, at FreshMinds we have noticed that this critical stage of a company's growth is also one of the most crucial in a company's recruitment lifespan. With this in mind, I thought that I would embark on an investigation of this implementation issue...

  • Time for a top up?

    Posted 10th March 2014 by Patrick White

    Struggling to find the outstanding graduates you need? You're not alone. It’s a challenge many companies face, including those with highly successful internal recruitment processes. This is where ‘graduate top up’ comes into its own. For those who haven’t heard of top up campaigns, here’s the low down from FreshMinds. What is graduate top up? Why might employers need it? When companies face a lack of graduate talent, it generally comes down to issues with quantity or quality of applications. To mitigate this, companies may partner with a top tier recruiter to provide a proportion (or all) of their graduates. Essentially, the recruiter ‘tops up' their graduate talent.

    Posted 28th January 2014 by Nic Cater

    Noticed an increasing number of positions require commercial experience? Whether it's relevant experience or something more general, there's no doubt it's becoming more important. How important are we talking? High Fliers research found over half of the top 100 employers in the UK felt candidates with no work experience (including internships or summer placements) were "unlikely to be successful during selection and have little or no chance of receiving a job offer for their organisations’ graduate programmes." So 'second jobbers' are becoming first choice.

  • You snooze, you lose

    Posted 20th December 2013 by Keri Link

    Britannia hotels and Travelodge have recently been voted the worst hotel chains in Britain by Which? Travel magazine. No massive surprise for me really – I had to stay in a Travelodge over the summer while we were waiting for our house to complete and it wasn’t exactly the Ritz. But then again, I wasn’t expecting the Ritz when I only paid £60 per night. Let’s not forget that being cheap can pay dividends. Many businesses have become very successful by playing the price card. But, where these price bashers have succeeded in the recession with minimal efforts in terms of innovation and investment in customer service, will the tides turn now the economy seems to be on the up?
