A MESSAGE FROM
THE PEOPLE GROUP MD, COLM BUCKLEY
With the Covid-19 crisis spreading at an unprecedented rate and the consequent social and political upheaval, we’re all feeling uncertainty. I wanted to give you an update on how things are going at The People Group.
We are carrying on regardless and continuing to do what we do best; providing support to our candidates and clients. All of our team are working remotely and constantly communicating with their networks to ensure everyone is okay and supported throughout this difficult time.
It’s encouraging to see many of our clients driving forward, adapting their recruitment processes, utilising online video resources and using this time to engage with top tier Sales & Marketing talent.
We also recognise that hiring the right talent is critical for the growth of all businesses – maybe even more so in these circumstances. We have created a number of solutions that will allow us to continue to deliver great talent in a way that is more cost-effective to your business right now.
Our team is staying strong and harnessing their resilience to focus on the positive. We value our Candidate and Client relationships, and in the spirit of partnership we want to support you in this period of uncertainty.
I want to reassure you that we are here to help and it is now more important than ever to work together.
We hope that you, your staff, family and friends are doing well. Take care and stay safe.
HOW WE DO IT
We are constantly meeting ‘High potential’ candidates for career conversations. In addition, we have strong links with diaspora through our sister site mysalary.ie and our partner companies in the UK and further afield.
We can provide you with a shortlist of top tier talent within 48 hours. During this difficult time the majority of candidates are working remotely and more available to speak with our team. We are using this time to connect with as many talented Sales & Marketing people as possible. We can provide you with a fully screened shortlist of Sales & Marketing talent and help to facilitate smooth engagement so you have potential hiring solutions lined up in the coming weeks and months.
In fact, one advantage of everyone working from home is that many candidates are freely available, without the usual distractions of travelling, meetings, or having to discreetly leave work to attend an interview. So if you still need that skills gap filled, now could be the perfect time to take advantage of an available talent pool and potentially speed up your hiring process. Check out our guide to online interviewing here.
During these uncertain times it is totally understandable that Client companies may be nervous about progressing with an interview process and/or making an offer to a candidate. However, we can help to facilitate a recruitment process and maintain close communication with all parties involved so that when a recovery comes you have the right talent available to re-engage with. Equally we have recent experience of clients driving forward with their recruitment plans and onboarding candidates remotely.
Fortune favours the brave……
