Utterly remarkable recruitment strategy

I like to think that some of the strategies we put in place to find people for our clients are pretty innovative. We're focussed on finding the very best people anyway we can. Yet this blows it out of the water really...

Via Seth, this link describes in detail a recruitment strategy that is truly remarkable. You may think that this doesn't apply to you I suppose because of the effort involved/cost/market sector you work in/type of person you hire etc. For me though it's not about copying what Red5 do, it's about the state of mind involved. It's about your attitude to recruitment. It's about the focus on people. It's about being truly committed to hiring the best and proving your committment. It's about doing things that people will remark on over and over.

Read the post, click the links, absorb the info and then hope you can do something as good as this. Think you can? Ideas on a postcard please!

That is a pretty powerful recruitment tool and it would certainly make me give them a call or visit their site, even if i did love my current job.

Wow, what a fabulous idea.
It is quite 'Mission Impossible' in its approach! All it needs is for it to say 'This message will self destruct in 30 seconds'!
But seriously, I do think that it is a very innovative idea and would definitely make potential employees sit up and take notice.
(I know I would!!)
