RRHR’s weekly wrap-up report on what’s happening in the world of RRHR, our clients, our candidates and the recruitment market.
What a week, the last week of the 2016/17 Financial Year and what a year it’s been. Change has been the underlying theme, and not only for Team RRHR. Almost every client that we have worked and partnered with this year has experienced enormous change as growth, technology, focus, market demands and expectations impact the way those entities operate to deliver what they need to deliver, be they For Profit or Not For Profit entities. Change seems to be the new norm, our job is to help organisations find people with the right skill sets to help them manage that change.
Team RRHR was fortunate to attend the Maurice Blackburn Women’s Networking Breakfast earlier this week. A packed room listened to MB’s Liberty Sanger interview outgoing Labor Senator and parliamentarian, Kate Ellis on her reflections as the youngest elected female senator some 13 years ago share some of her experiences and challenges of her public life. To top it all off Claudia won the business card competition and bagged a bottle of Moet!
I also finally managed to make it along to a Women On Boards event on Wednesday night. This is a really interesting organisation set up to facilitate the recruitment of women onto boards, (non-profit, public and corporate) to increase the gender balance in favour of the greater female representation at board level and given that woman make up 50.5% of the population…not before time!!
And if you missed it, do yourself a favour and read Claudia’s blog Bring your Doug to Work Day ….it will cheer you up as we roll over into another new financial year.
Until Next Year!
