For many of the corporations, companies and SMEs of the Allianz Partners community, business activities now operate at a distance, with recruitment often carried out remotely. To learn more about the future of recruitment, we spoke to Leanne Elliott, CBP, MBPsS, MSc Psychology. She’s the founder of OblongHQ – a consultancy dedicated to scaling service businesses through people.
“As both a certified business psychologist and a globally-mobile individual (GMI), I have a unique perspective on recruiting remote teams,” Leanne tells us. “Not only have I worked fully remotely since 2013 (visiting 44 countries and counting), but I’ve also helped numerous organisations recruit partially or fully-remote teams, often spanning multiple continents.”
That means that she understands what managers and leaders want from the recruitment process. “I apply evidence-led techniques to help them, even in this seemingly tough time where the fight for talent is real,” she says. In the first of a three-part series, Leanne talks us through how employers and employees can help to shape new roles for a new world.
