As those who follow our activities will be aware, we are preparing to begin crowdfunding. As huge advocates of the power of crowdfunding, we thought it’d be beneficial to give examples of some of most successful and inspirational stories which show the positive effects of crowdfunding.
As readers of my blog will know, I try to be as vocal as I can about diversity, especially in the workplace. This week, a report highlighting the shocking underinvestment in female start-ups has reinforced my feelings that there are still many barriers to be overcome.
As those of you who follow us will know, we kicked off our crowdfunding activity this month! We’ve launched a campaign on Seedrs, with a 3 year forecast valuation of £42 million. As strong believers in using community to solve problems, it’s natural that we’ve turned to crowdfunding to grow further.
A report this week from the Boston Consulting Group revealed that workers who believe their employer has failed to make any progress on diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the past three years are three times more likely to leave their job. Discover my thoughts on the topic and what needs to change.
As readers will know, I’m fascinated by new industry models and the potential they hold for people and businesses. This week, I read an interesting World Economic Forum article on some of the expected sharing economy trends in 2019, and while I don’t necessarily agree with them all, there were certainly some interesting points raised.
Following on from a piece that I recently wrote for AMBA, (The Association of MBA’s), I would like to expand on how professionals can harness the power of their network as the shared economy drives disruption.
This week, I’m delighted to announce that, AnyGood? has been accepted as a member of Sharing Economy UK, the trade body committed to championing businesses that operate under a shared economy model. Find out what this for our 2019 plans and beyond in our latest blog.
2018 has been a great year for AnyGood? The platform has gone from strength to strength, with increased growth and a vast amount of interest being generated in our work. This has been extremely encouraging and the rest of the team and myself will endeavour to make sure this continues into the New Year.
As regular readers will know, I believe the recruitment industry has fallen way behind in terms of innovation and disruption, and is in need of real change. This change will require a whole new model which features aspects of the ‘sharing economy’. In this blog, I look at some of the key benefits that the sharing economy has to offer.
As I’ve stated before, bad publicity is never far away from the recruitment sector and, unfortunately, another story has emerged which paints the industry in a bad light. New research has shown that a huge number of candidates are asked unjustified and potentially illegal questions during the recruitment process and at interview.
