Recruiting Brainfood for the week ahead - Issue #295

Thank you. It was my birthday last week and I wanted to start off today’s newsletter by thanking everybody for your incredibly kind messages and warm wishes on the day. Even for a skeptic like me, it was a real boost to feel your goodwill and it reminded me how impactful it can be to simply reach out and say that you care.
As we struggle toward our shared future, I can’t help but think of the role communities like ours might play in nudging our species toward better outcomes. We are just a bunch of recruiters and HR people at the end of the day, but we have nonetheless come together in community because we share a passion for the work and, perhaps, a belief that it is through connection and communication that complex human problems can best be solved.
I suspect we will need remember this as we navigate uncertain futures. Keep connecting, keep communicating, keep leading with goodwill, especially with, to and for those with perspectives different from our own. It is only through connection that we give ourselves the opportunity to see the humanity in the other and through that awareness, preserve the humanity in ourselves. I believe we will get there. I hope you do too.

Ok so back on the road this week, going to be in sunny (better be) Barcelona this week, and will be there for around 10 days, so I hope to get the time see some of you around. Main mission is Hired!BCN when I’ve got to update my research on ‘What Recruiters Want’….see you there if you are in town.
My search for sun has revealed this cool website, where you can see what the weather looks like all year round…
DM me on twitter or Instagram or TikTok if you have any other cool Internet for me to check out.
Have a great week everybody.
