RoundUP #3

Welcome to the latest edition of the RoundUp newsletter.

Exciting news – Round joins 1% for the Planet!

We have exciting news. Round has joined 1% for the Planet. What does this mean?

1% For The Planet is a non-profit initiative that helps businesses to contribute financial support to grassroots environmental charities. Each annual donation is audited, checked, and certified by 1% For The Planet to ensure that it makes a difference to our planet.

Through our 1% for the Planet membership, Round will be donating a minimum of 1% of our annual sales to the environment, whether or not we are profitable.

We know that we can do more together than we can do alone. 1% provides a mechanism for us to channel our funding to a range of partners on the ground. A global and growing network of individual and business members, 1% for the Planet commits to tackling some of our planet’s most pressing environmental issues.

Poll time

Our latest poll has been our most popular. Round Founder Geoff Sims ran a thread on LinkedIn on the two essential traits of a top recruitment consultant. He asked industry experts for their views so that we could narrow down a top-four and use them as a base for the poll. The thread was also open to his almost 30 thousand-strong network on LinkedIn.

So – are we on the path to finding the holy grail? Here’s what we found.

What is most important in a successful recruitment consultant?

Integrity – honesty                                        55%

Resilience – persistence                              33%

Empathy – good listening                          9%

Eagerness to learn                                        3%

I think we need all of the above to succeed, being resilient for any knockback helps to pick you up, being honest is important on a daily basis, listening to your candidates & clients needs, and you are never too old to learn. I believe that I learn something new every day in the world of Recruitment!

– Sarah Ayres, Business Manager, Locum Placement Group

“I rank ‘Resilience’ as the top trait to be successful. You need to be ALL of the above, but if you can’t pick yourself up when you get knocked down (which happens), then the rest won’t matter.”

– Bernadette Grattan, Accounting and Finance Recruiter
