  • A comparison of recruitment and buying a car

    Posted on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 by Venn GroupNo comments

    What’s your budget? What are you looking for? Why do you find yourself looking? Are these questions relating to recruitment? Or buying a new car?   Having recently found myself looking for a new car, I couldn’t help but draw comparisons between recruitment and purchasing a new car.   The first thing I thought was similar was the search. What exactly is it that I want? Am I looking for ...

  • Estates & Facilities 2018

    Posted on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 by Venn GroupNo comments

    Grenfell Tower, budget cuts and Carillion Liquidation... What does this mean for public sector estates and facilities contractors? The last 12 months has proved to be both challenging as well as devastating for the public sector when it comes to property management and fire-safety. With the country spending the entirety of 2017 on a high terror threat, we didn’t envisage the highest death toll ...

  • The latest Venn Index is released

    Posted on Monday, January 22, 2018 by Venn GroupNo comments

    The latest Venn Index shows that the healthcare sector is stronger and more resilient than media scares would have us believe.  Even allowing for various pressures – the ‘flu season’ spike in demand, and the relentlessly rising costs of caring for an ageing population, treating complex diseases, and running innovative clinical trials – it is clear that the sector is making headway. It’s even ...

  • Get back on the resolution horse!

    Posted on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 by Venn GroupNo comments

    So last Friday was statistically the most likely day to break your new years resolutions. In my last piece I gave my resolutions. Have I kept them? ……mostly!  Were any lapses due to lack of conviction or just old habits sneaking back?  Probably a bit of both. After all, the mind is perhaps most powerful organ in the body - sometimes it’s in full control of everything, other times it is ...

    NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS 1.  Ignore the ping (and the envelope)! Many of us cannot bear to leave that little envelope hanging.  As the ‘what-if’s’ run through our head, we abandon our current task and dive into our email to check it.  Instead, try this:  Wait five minutes. When was the last time you opened an email that couldn’t have waited that time?  Who’s in charge here?  Try applying the ...
