Poor attendance numbers at industry events disappointing: Clennett
Recruiters are missing out on valuable learning opportunities by failing to
attend industry events like the recent
RCSA PEARL Consultant Forum, says industry
trainer Ross Clennett.
In a series of recent blog posts, Clennett criticised the number of recruiters who attended the forum, with fewer than 50 registered in the week leading up to the event.
"It simply staggers me that our industry could be so cavalier about the development of their own staff and so uninterested in attending such a high-calibre event," he said.
Clennett said the attendance levels were particularly disheartening given the very reasonable registration price.
"A day and a half out of the office is nothing when you consider the potential learning available."
ShortList is the number one source of information for both corporate recruiters and recruitment companies.
