A year in review and look ahead

A look back at the year and stories that caught our attention, as well as what we’re looking forward to in 2019.

Be happy at work

For many of us, a large portion of our day is spent at work. In fact, one third of your life will be spent working - that’s 90,000 hours over a lifetime! So, it’s safe to say that what you do during those 90,000 hours can have a major impact on your quality of life.

Plan next year’s hiring now

You might be in the early stages of planning your department’s budget for the next fiscal year. Or perhaps your leadership team is starting to think about short term priorities that will require longer-term resource allocation. Even if you are not increasing your head count, you’ll still need replacement hires. Balance these factors against the typical tight labour market in the New Year and it’s clear that now is the time to engage with your recruitment provider.
