Managing your staff is not as simple as leading them to the pinnacle of success or improving their productivity. Providing your employees with the right motivation and work environment to bring out their maximum potential and whole-person development.
Every manager worth his or her value in their organisation is faced with an ongoing challenge – how to motivate their work force, how to ensure that their employees bring, or will continue to bring, energy, passion and a positive attitude to work every day.
Recruitment, as in most other businesses, is all about relationships. The success of a recruiter depends very much on the strength of the relationships with both candidates and clients.

As we grow in our careers and develop our skills and knowledge, we are enriching not only ourselves, but also everyone that we come into contact with.
Every organisation goes through recruitment processes to fill vacancies from time to time. The age-old dilemma lies in the fact that promoting someone from within the organisation may result in advantages for the organisation when compared with the alternative of recruiting new employees to fill such positions.
A team is a group of individuals – with different backgrounds, personalities and experiences – who have put all their qualities together in order to achieve a common goal.
