How do you know if the decisions you take as the leader of an organisation are right? Are you judged on top line growth? Bottom line? Cash flow? Mental well-being of colleagues? Contentment of clients and candidates?
We have currently found ourselves in circumstances that are affecting us all, and for many (if not all!) of us negatively. With this week being Mental Health Awareness Week, it seems like the perfect time to reflect on not only our well-being but the mental health of those around us.
There have been easier times to be in recruitment. There have been easier times to be in pretty much everything, with the possible exception of selling video conferencing facilities. At Allen Lane, we, like our competitors, have a responsibility to influence our market and to help our clients and candidates make astute decisions.
