Resilience Through the Pandemic with Kelly Dunn
This week I speak to Kelly Dunn about resilience through the pandemic. Kelly is a Scarborough-based recruiter and one of the top 5 consultants in the UK for permanent recruitment. She is an expert recruiter who sources top talent for temporary, permanent and fixed-term contract roles across many sectors, including: Accountancy and Finance, HR, Office Support, Marketing, IT, Construction and Engineering.
Kelly recently conducted a survey about the effects of the pandemic on the businesses across north and east Yorkshire and we talk a little bit about what she found interesting. Kelly found that what she had expected from the survey was actually very different in the results – ‘inspirational’ and ‘optimistic’ are key words found in her explanation of her results.
We also discuss the types of resilience support there is at the moment for employees. What kind of support networks do employees have available for themselves? Looking after ourselves during the pandemic is incredibly important, so you should try and find out what kind of support you are missing, and how you can fill that gap in.
Accessibility is going to be an important part of the business world moving forward. Why should businesses only hire people in their area when the talent pool can be much larger to grab from? With a ‘working from home’ policy, more people will be able to work to a much higher efficiency.
We discuss more of the statistics that Kelly learnt from her survey. Listen more on the podcast to hear how this may relate to you or your business.
