Having taught on the CIPD HR Practice module Resourcing Talent it’s clear we need to modernise our approach to attracting the best people for the work. New ways of advertising for and ne way to assess capabilities are required.

We need to ensure the candidates, who apply, share our ethos and our way of working and we as an organisation need to be sure we choose the people who fit our culture.
