Like many businesses, Cindy and her HR team focus on keeping employees motivated, using this firsthand experience to share practical insights for business leaders hoping to boost morale within their workforce.

AI in 2024

Artificial Intelligence (AI) isn’t a new concept, but its role in recruitment is becoming more predominant. The sophistication of the tools being utilised is both impressive and daunting at the same time. But we simply can’t ignore the fact that the recruitment profession is behind the curve when it comes to AI adoption.
