After a combined 50 years of running businesses around the world, we have felt a growing deep dissatisfaction and frustration with the modern recruitment. It more often seems that the goal is to get a number of 'plausible' candidates in front of the client as fast as possible until someone gets hired.
For the 'engine room' of the organisation (the large managerial and functional 'middle') this 'numbers and speed' approach to recruitment kills performance, creates significant organisational stress, increases costs and ensures people become disengaged.
