December Holidays again!
We’ve just got the business back on track: signed up some new clients, re-activated some dormant clients, got the job specs flowing nicely, seeded the database with some great candidates… and December strikes again!
Clients go on leave, Candidates hang on for bonuses, and nobody wants to make a decision… “Let’s hold it over for the New Year”. Skeleton staff at the office; bored recruiters twiddling their thumbs on Facebook… stuck in the frustrating limbo between the Christmas Holidays and the promise of the New Year.
When you think about it: we really only have nine months to make up twelve months income! The December Holidays seem to start earlier and earlier every year, January is a waste of time, then Easter klaps us from the side-lines… but we still need to pay the overheads somehow.
But what can you do?
Recruitment is a funny old business… some agencies are dead in the water from the middle of November and some keep right on going, posting jobs and making placements right through the holidays. I guess it all depends on your industry and client niche, and how well you have positioned yourself.
Even so, whatever the state of your business flow, the holidays are a great time to shut it all down and have a well-deserved break…
… Or to consolidate…
Train and re-train your staff. Jack up your systems. But most importantly, clean up your Candidate database: weed out the old and obsolete, update your CV’s, and seed your database with fresh candidates.
Help is on the way.
Her comes Santa… and your ideal candidates might just be in his bag!
