How to write an effective job description

Here are some key things to look out for when screening applicants in this crucial stage of the recruitment process.


Writing an offer letter

Guide to counter offers

In today’s job market, there is a huge emphasis on retaining talented employees, so it’s not unusual for business to make a counter-offer once someone has handed in their notice. This can be hugely frustrating for new employers since time, effort and money has gone into finding the ideal candidate. Here’s what to do if you find yourself in this position.


Successful onboarding

Some 28% of new employees quit in the first 90 days due to poor onboarding processes. Given that recruitment and training can be costly, it’s crucial for companies to ensure they are meeting new joiner expectations and fulfilling on promises made.
