"P - I = R. Potential minus Interference equals Results. Have a D&I goal and make that goal your potential. Then think of all the things that are going to challenge and potentially derail that goal, that is your interference. Attack all of that interference and get it out of the way so you can get results."
- Torin Ellis
"If you're just starting out, find a leader not a job. Somebody you can learn from and somebody that will believe in you. In relation to talent, treat people right. We are in a people business and that needs to be at the forefront of your mind when dealing with people because reputation lasts forever."
- John Wilson, WilsonHCG
"Build a good name. Do whatever you can to invest in others and support the community and your workspace. If you have that as your north star in your career, you will excel and you'll build great relationships and networks.
- Lars Schmidt, Amplify
“Being a recruiter is a relationship business. The ability to build relationships, get people talking, build a network inside your business, and really understand your business is what will make a recruiter successful.”
- Graeme Johnson, GVC
“Be up front about the adversities and realities of your organisation. Protect the culture of your company by hiring people that are a match. Don’t just sell the sizzle of the role.”
- Bryan Adams, PH Creative
“Try your best, and once you know better you should always do better. On inclusion, once you have heard the pitfalls or gotten advice on it you should act on it.”
- Joanna Abeyie MBE, Blue Moon
“Stop allowing yourself to be measured on faster and cheaper. As long as TA is measured by time to fill and cost per hire, we are never going to be able to be measured by the outcome that we produce.”
- Jerome Ternynck, SmartRecruiters
