When we reach the Executive Search? 05.01.2016

It is not in a good taste for the HR Manager or Specialist to reach directly the candidate positioned high in the structures of competitors. It is not fair that we try to drag a candidate on our side, and thus weaken the competition. The story is completely different, if the external consultant is taking care of it. Although the result is the same.

Is it worthwhile to nurture candidates’ satisfaction? 26.02.2014

‘I did not receive any feedback following the recruitment process,’ ‘The consultant stopped answering my calls,’ ‘We agreed to get in touch during the week but only silence ensued,’ these are the most frequent comments and opinions voiced by candidates who participate in recruitment processes.

Koń Lemon fot. Andrzej Rutkowski

Lemon, a horse

Lemon is a lovely English thoroughbred horse (pictured on the left), stationed at the Racecourse of Służewiec (Warsaw). Since 2010, we provide Lemon with bad and breakfast, which are: an extensive paddock and systematic supplies of carrots. Lemon is a horse injured, what basically means that we only can spoil him. And that we do with pleasure.

Lemon is extremely enthusiastic about people and horses, but has only one friend . It is Marathon (pictured on the right), an English thoroughbred horse as well. Lemon, although is very friendly, has a very strong and dominant character. He is the ringleader of escapes from the paddock. However, always makes sure that his friend is not lost and keeps his eye on him.

Both Lemon and Marathon, are honorary horse blood donors. They already rescued many horses' lives. We are pleased that such a fantastic horse is the face, and in fact the mouth of Carpenter Consulting.
