Why did the cow cross the road?
I ask this because I was delayed by some cows doing just this on my way home from dropping my daughters at school. I assume it was for some good farming-related reason, and I didn’t mind stopping because I know for a fact that farmers can’t work from home.
Most IT people CAN work from home, though. And this, combined with the increased demand for their services (see this morning’s news about record job vacancies) means that recruiting permanent staff is harder than ever before.
It’s still possible, though. Advice to employers – embrace the flexibility that the current workforce demands (if you can), be flexible yourself when it comes to writing job descriptions (think potential over experience) and prepare yourself for a slightly slower than usual recruitment process.
And whatever you do, don’t beep your horn!
