Meet your match in support of Rotherham Hospice

This year we’ve been lending our support to The Rotherham Hospice’s BIG Fundraising Challenge and after the success of our soup-er Human challenge before Christmas, we have decided to play cupid and spread the love with a brand new matchmaking service!

Don’t worry…we’re not adding the dating game to our services! But we are aiming to help businesses meet their perfect match by offering a special discounted package when it comes to advertising job vacancies.

We have negotiated a special discounted rate on job advertising, which will see vacancies promoted on several popular jobs boards as well as being promoted via social media for two weeks.

The price of the advertising package is just £150.00 plus VAT.

But hurry, this offer is only available for a limited time. To advertise, please contact us on 01709 717212 or email hello@recruithuman.co.uk:

All profits will be donated to the Rotherham Hospice BIG fundraising challenge

EL update

A recent European Court ruling could have far-reaching implications for both business owners and members of staff when it comes reading private messages sent by employees.

Last month the European Court of Human Rights ruled that an employee’s private Yahoo Messenger chats which led to the dismissal of the employee was lawful because the messenger contained both personal and professional contacts. The case which was brought to the courts by an engineer in Romania examined whether an employee had a right to a private life whilst at work, and whether an employer had the right to access messages sent by employees.

Judges ruled in favour of the employer and the ruling must now be taken into account when similar cases are heard in the UK courts.

The case goes some way to illustrating the importance for businesses to have a clear data usage policy in place and should clearly be communicated to employees.

A truly heartfelt thanks

Last month, Human Recruitment turned three and to celebrate, we hosted our birthday breakfast networking event: Health, Wealth and Success – A Kickstart to 2016.

The turnout was outstanding and it was great to see business owners and leaders who have supported Human from the very beginning make an appearance, as well as learning how to tackle 2016 head on.

Our guest speakers included Fiona Lowe of Westfield Health, Jill Turner of Jill Turner Associates and Julie Robinson of Footprints Accountancy, who spoke about the financial outlook for businesses in 2016 and how to achieve your goals, whether professional or personal, in the coming year.

Alongside support from our guest speakers, we also introduced the two charities Human are supporting throughout the year: The Rotherham Hospice and Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Once again, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended the event and who have offered support, advice and guidance from the birth of Human Recruitment to the present and continuing into the future.

Rotherham Hospice

These boots were made for walking…

We were proud to launch the Hike for the Hospice appeal at the end of January and never one to be phased by a new challenge Amy, our intrepid leader, set up a treadmill in the office and we’ve set our sights on hoping to complete 50 miles by the end of the month – the equivalent of taking part in the gruelling Rotherham Ring Route: a trek along the borders of the Rotherham borough.As I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, throughout February Human Recruitment is supporting The Rotherham Hospice as part of its BIG Fundraising Challenge. So far this year we’ve made soup and shared afternoon tea with our neighbours, so we felt for the next mission it was time to burn off a few calories!

We’ve already raised over £200 for the Hospices’ BIG Fundraising challenge and we would love to give more. If you would like to support the Human team on our Hike for the Hospice challenge, you can donate to our Just Giving page or download a sponsor form.

Thanks for reading and have a great February!
