My CEO asked me to write a series of blogs, outlining my journey from a successful recruitment career through to joining PredictiveHire at the forefront of the People Technology space, helping business make better hires, faster.
In case you missed it: The other week, Sage CEO, Stephen Kelly, sat down with PredictiveHire's Steven John, number 45 on the Sage Top 100 list for 2017, and asked him his thoughts on AI and just how important he feels it is to get it right.
Do you wish you could harness the very best attributes of your people and just hire more of them, quickly, without bias? Do you spend more time recruiting than you would like? Have you ever gone against your better judgement and hired hastily only to discover the whole process has cost your business greatly?

It’s a cliché, but nonetheless true, that as time passes all processes become dated.
Some might need to be thrown out completely. Many more need to be adjusted and refined to keep up as workplaces and ways of working change.

Only 28% of organisations can answer 'Yes' to these two questions!
