Everybody accepts that the most valuable asset of a company, its people, does not appear in the balance sheet and takes the lift out of the office every evening. However many companies invest more in installing and maintaining their lifts than in recruiting and training their personnel. They worry more about "shareholder value" and short-term profits than about developing the skills and well-being of their employees.
At BAN Recruitment, we cannot help you service your lifts but we can certainly help you recruit the best people to develop your business. We realise that if a company does not have the right people and if these people are not committed, operating efficiency and profitability will be diminished greatly.
“In today's society, a company which does not take into account the human dimension will almost certainly lose "shareholder value" in the medium-term.”
And if people are the most important asset in your company, recruitment must be the most important function and treated as an investment rather than a cost. It should be performed by experts who can offer you valuable advice as well as identifying the best people quickly and proactively.
However, in today’s market it is not enough to recruit the best people. Top people need to be "re-recruited" on a daily basis. There is increasing competition for talent, maybe even more so when the economy is difficult and the quality of your people becomes the main differentiating factor and key to success. Jobs for life have disappeared, but by increasing the efficiency and skill sets of your existing staff you will have a more motivated workforce and ultimately a more profitable business.
