Yesterday, I learned some interesting things about Generation Z (18-25 year olds).
Who would have known?!
I’m so glad that I bothered to show up at the webinar to hear expert, Paul Redmond, (international speaker, writer and researcher) present on this fascinating topic.
These are all incredibly useful things for me to know, as many of my SME clients who are expanding their teams, wish to reach out to this group of young people, and attract them to come and work for them.
However, when these small business owners decide that they need to recruit someone new, they don’t always initially turn to an expert. I often have business owners say to me:
‘I need to hire someone.’
‘I hate recruiting, it’s a nightmare. ‘
‘You never know if they can do the job, my last new hire couldn’t.’
‘It was so disappointing, he sounded so good in the interview, but just couldn’t do the job and he upset team members and some of my customers.‘
‘We had to let him go.’
Does this sound familiar?
These business owners often can’t quite put their finger on why this happened but know that in order to scale their business they need to become better at recruitment.
They don’t know what they don’t know.
Through working with me, they find out what they don’t know. They learn that they can hire the people their business needs by having a structured recruitment process and that this makes everything a whole lot easier.

If you’re ready to recruit your next new team member, and want to know what you don’t know about recruiting the right people, I’d love to hear from you.
