  • Welcome Staffing & Recruiting Agency Professionals to Jobscience & Menemsha Group's 3-Part, Sales Productivity Series --- "The Road to Winning More Business."

    Part 2: Accelerate Past Your Competition By Improving How You Qualify Job Orders.

    What if there was a way to shorten your sales cycle from 25 days to 20 days? And imagine if instead of closing two or three job orders out of ten you could close five or even six or seven out of ten job orders? Combined, that would be a significant boost to your sales results, without having to exert additional prospecting time and energy. That is what we call working smart!

    Proven sales coach to staffing agencies, Dan Fisher of Menemsha Group will highlight the most important and often most overlooked qualification elements of taking a client requirement.

    Key learning experiences include:
    •How to establish yourself as an equal peer with your client (& why this is so critical)?
    •How you can change the playing field (change the client requirement)?
    •How to eliminate latency and avoid a stalled sales cycle?
    •How to leverage recruitment agency CRM software to drive consistent practices of taking a job order?
  • While most parents would be delighted if their offspring wanted to become an accountant, lawyer or even an actuary, they may be less encouraging if their son or daughter said they wanted to be a hacker. This is the negative manifestation of working in the cyber security industry that is often portrayed in the media. The reality is very different, with careers in cyber security providing fantastic opportunities that are hugely varied, really challenging and help to do good for society.

    Structured career paths provide an opportunity to progress quickly with jobs in large audit and accountancy firms through to small specialist boutique start-ups, as well as the chance for international work and creating new businesses. In addition, the whole industry is very diverse and is looking for people with a very wide range of talents.

    The problem is how do we communicate this to people who may be interested in the industry? Just as important for young people, how do we get to the influencers; their parents and their careers advisors to understand what an exciting place the cyber security industry is to work in and what they can expect in terms of the types of company they could work for and their salary expectations.

    The problem can be partially solved through education, information and support from businesses working together with a consistent message designed to encourage the very best people into the industry.

    In this presentation, Ian Glover from CREST will look at the challenges of attracting the brightest young people into careers that traditionally have an image problem and providing a strong career path once they are in. In particular, he will focus on the importance of properly-run internships and Government funded initiatives to educate and inform.

  • In times of increasing employee choice and the ‘portfolio career’, does HR think about the talent in our organisations as consumers just as our marketing teams would view our customers and clients? Recent research by the Henley Business School suggests not. Professor Nick Kemsley, non-exec Director of Head Light and Co-director at Henley Business School Centre for HR Excellence will share the findings from research from Henley Business School. He’ll explain why he thinks many talent management models are based on out-dated assumptions and that a real shift of HR thinking and action needs to be taking place now.

  • We are approaching a time when your business will have to manage the needs and behaviours of four different generations all at once. And make no mistake, each generation behaves very differently.

    A multi-generational workplace is inevitably a complicated one. People of different ages typically have different perspectives on the world. They disagree on the most fundamental issues. They dress differently, eat differently and travel differently. And more pertinently, they work differently.

    Using the latest research, insights and opinions available, Russell Beck, Impellam’s Head of Consulting, examines the challenges inherent within a multi-generational workforce.

    He’ll be focusing on the three generations that are currently the most abundant at work; Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y.
