Keeping up-to-date with recruitment news. How? Why?

Everyone knows recruitment is important. None of the Googles, Coca Colas, or Microsofts of this world would have had a chance in their respective industries if it wasn’t for their hard working employees.


But times have changed and the market is quicker than it ever has before. It seems like nearly every day a new recruitment scheme will be announced by the government before, quite predictably, being countered by the Labour party and unions.

While all of this is tedious at the best of times, it’s still absolutely vital your company keeps up to date with all the latest developments you want to effectively recruit sales staff.

So it’s clear that following the latest industry news in sales recruitment is important, but what are the best ways of doing this?

Subscribing to relevant websites

There are a number of relevant websites and magazines out there that could keep you up-to-date with the latest developments in the sales recruitment field. Recruiter is perhaps one of the most well known publications in the sector and maintains both print and online versions of its latest editorials.

The Financial Times (FT) is also a fantastic source of all the latest developments in the industry and although a paid subscription is needed to view online articles, it’s well worth the money. FT has some of the best sources in the media world and has a reputation that means when it says something is true – it probably is.

Recruitment Buzz is a more recent player in the market and has some way to go before matching other industry leaders, but it puts out a huge number of well-written articles everyday and breaks important sectoral news.

Reading the news

This might sound a bit strange, but simply keeping up with the daily news is a great way to know what’s going on in the sales recruitment field. The industry is so important that it regularly gets coverage from mainstream outlets including the BBC, Sky News, Channel 4 and the Guardian.

Human resourcing is a hot topic, especially due to the increasing media focus on the economy since the 2008 financial crisis and much has been made of the service sector’s recent surge in growth. For example, some call centres have become the topic of discussion, with some commentators arguing not enough is being done to incentivise good performance at the contact centres.

These are the kind of things that must be taken into account when hiring any new starter, as doing this in a poor market might have negative consequences down the line – especially if the staff member isn’t a perfect fit for your organisation.

Using a sales recruitment firm

Expert sales recruitment firms will naturally have the edge when it comes to knowing the latest and greatest trends in the field.
