­We’re half-way through November already and we’re keen to share with you how we’ve been doing. In the run up to the festive season we’ve been ramping up our activity with things like the succession planning month, our LinkedIn event, Diversity in Recruitment, REX & our Taster session.

Succession Planning in Recruitment – The first of our new content strategy.

We’re trying something a little different in the coming months, our marketing team have been hard at work crafting an interesting strategy, where we tackle an industry issue each month. We’ve kicked it off with Succession Planning in Recruitment.

With it being mid November already, we’ve produced 3 of the 4 planned articles. View our overview page here

The first instalment of our succession planning month we started by looking at Succession Planning in Recruitment, what it is and why you should have one in your recruitment business.

In the next release we discussed How to Build a Bulletproof Succession Plan, with a step by step guide taking you through the process.

Next we ask (and answer) the question of Internal vs External Succession Planning, then finishing the month looking at what happens when it goes wrong.

Recruitment Expertise Dashboard (REX) – Available to everyone!

The Recruitment Expertise Dashboard, proved to be very popular with our members, so we thought why not bring the great content to everyone? – So here it is live and free to visit whenever you want!

REX is home to a whole host of videos on cutting-edge talks about CX, Sales, Leadership, Recruitment and Marketing from industry thought leaders. Our goal is to create a place Recruitment professionals can jump on and find a whole host of entertaining, thought-provoking and value adding videos relatable to them and their profession.

Last week’s additions saw an interview with Goldman Sachs Head of Human Capital Director, Edith Cooper, and her interviewer, Deborah Frances-White, discuss diversity, leadership and creativity.

This is something we’ll be updating every single week, and if you want to be the first to know what we’ve added then don’t hesitate to sign-up to our mailing list!

#RecruitmentMeansDiversity – Our new exciting initiative

Diversity within your company is vital if you want the inner structure of your business to represent the world we now live in. To create a harmonious balance between different under-represented groups and nurture inclusiveness it is key to make the right decisions and create positive initiatives that focus on diversity.

This article is one of many in our new initiative here at TRN #RecruitmentMeansDiversity, where we hope to shine a spotlight on how the recruitment industry currently attracts, retains and treats their talent.

We’re kicking off the initiative with Women in Recruitment and as a starting point we are conducting a survey. The aim of the survey is to further explore the perceptions around women in recruitment businesses. With your help in completing the survey we hope to learn more about what women face when working in recruitment, with some area that we can implement change to encourage more women in the industry.

The survey only takes 5 minutes to complete and we would greatly appreciate your input. Head over to the survey here.

LinkedIn to Business Growth

On Monday the 20th we co-hosted a morning event with LinkedIn at their awesome HQ in London. It was a fascinating session facilitated by LinkedIn’s resident experts. We helped our attendees develop new approaches to grow their business. Looking at using LinkedIn for candidate sourcing and business development, how to build your followers and how to understand the data and insights gathered from LinkedIn in your business.

We’ll be hosting many more of these events in the near future with our partners, helping to grow and empower not only our members but the industry as a whole.
