Lloyd’s EVP, Jason Banks, will tell you the foundation of Lloyd’s Placements with a Purpose program was his mother, Diane Banks. “Almost 9 years ago we lost the BEST MOM!” he says, “We didn’t lose her through diabetes alone, but it was a disease we saw her battle throughout her life.”
Lloyd’s first program is “The Most In Demand Project Management Career Skills” and it will be offered as a complimentary online program to all LLoydEmployed associates on Friday June 18th from 12 noon to 2 pm.
The two teams are not in competition, at their best they are collaborators. It is the desire to expand and improve the talent selection that should drive the pairing of in-house recruiters with external search partners. Together we can build an amazing base of talent by leveraging each other’s knowledge, processes and connections. Talent Wins!!
We have a huge span of generations in the workplace. Baby Boomers to Zoomers (Gen Z) – those who prefer a business card to those who will only use a vCard. All should do better at trying to appreciate and value each other’s strengths rather than dissing their differences. We text too much and talk too little. We should be embracing the varied collective knowledge that can transform companies from good to great. Our workplaces replicate our lives and it’s the blend of new and old that help us find meaning and understanding.
A recruiter should never give a candidate false hope. If you don’t have an immediate opening/search that fits the individual’s skill set, you should let that person know. Be honest in how you can or cannot help them. Remember, as a recruiter your reputation is yours to establish and maintain!
