Guest Blog: A Global Talent Pool
Wayne Reynolds is Director at Birchwood Knight
Finding the best talent in the world can sometimes mean literally that, searching for staff on every continent. And what happens when you find them? You exchange emails, you set-up an initial telephone call, so far so good. But what next? Flying someone half way around the world for a job interview, who might not actually be any good, is both expensive and time consuming, and not without environmental impact.
Birchwood Knight specialises in recruiting corporate communications staff and regularly identifies talent around the world: Bangkok; Brussels; Dallas; Doha; Hong Kong; Shanghai; Sydney; and Washington DC, to name a few recent examples. Telephone interviews are useful to a point, they provide an opportunity to hear someone’s experience first hand, but it’s often difficult to get a real feel for who they are, and get into the detail of what they’ve achieved and how.
With business centres all over the world Regus offers us and our clients the opportunity to ‘meet’ candidates via telepresence or video conference, creating the environment to have a really productive interview, and contributing to a time efficient, cost effective recruitment process.
