About Forthewantofanail.org

The boss knows how important people are to the organisation.  You can be sure of that, otherwise there wouldn’t be an HR department if it wasn’t the case!

HR knows how important hiring is too; for all of the excellent work that’s going on in the areas of self-directing teams, employee engagement, selection centre development etc – it’s all a bit futile if they can’t attract the right people into their hiring process in the first place.

So why isn’t hiring policy, practice and strategy locked-in to the operational needs of the organisation?

How does it become acceptable, for example, to have a company policy that states “we never pay retainers or any more than 15% to recruitment agencies” – when that policy represents a ‘saving’ of £2,500 on a fee, yet costs the organisation £millions in lost revenue?*

Forthewantofanail.org is launched in support of all the great HR people out there who battle against institutionalised apathy regarding the need for a pragmatic and unilateral approach to best hiring practice, with genuine top-down support.

It also sounds a wake-up call to those organisations that are prevented from moving forward by dogmatic HRs who see skills shortages as the perfect cover for lack of hiring performance.

There are alternatives to the conventional practices which cost industry a fortune in lost productivity, hiring delays failures and mistakes, low morale and missed opportunity. 

Forthewantofanail.org is developed with the sole purpose of raising awareness of the issues and the alternatives, so that the winners and losers in the war for talent can make their informed choices.
