News stories

  • As an engineering recruitment agency, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to adapt our approach so that we can secure the right fit for our candidates. In most markets, there are ever-evolving practices that incorporate changing technologies, laws and social parameters and to stay ahead of the competition agencies like ours must adapt to these. So, what are the top 3 recruitment trends of 2018 that our engineering recruitment agency and employers should be considering this year?

    Skills Driving Salaries

    Over the recent years, average salaries have flatlined. However, this is predicted to change due to inflation coupled with current extremely high employment rates. Good news for engineers; the biggest rise is expected in the qualified and technical markets! But with Brexit uncertainty and a weakened pound to contend with, comes a reduction in the supply of labour in the industry, so if you’re struggling to attract talent, you’ll need to be ready to increase your offerings to secure the best candidates.

    New Jobs – New Way of Thinking

    Increasing specialisation in engineering markets, new job titles pop up and our engineering recruitment consultancy must use different approaches to secure the best people. With these new titles comes new tools and channels within the market at an almost daily rate, so it’s important to understand what actually works. By staying in the know with moving markets and adapting thought processes to hiring and retaining staff, employers and recruiters alike can keep up with the changing times and use this to influence their candidate selections.

    Technology Needs Talent

    With technology advancing at a jaw-dropping pace, it’s not uncommon for employers, candidates and recruiters to worry about how intelligent machinery could impact their respective industries- especially engineering firms. As machine capabilities grow, to reap the benefits of them one thing is for sure, human intelligence is still a must. As with the above, new job titles will be created for those manning such technology so ensuring your candidates are technologically adept and forward thinking, as well as reassuring them of their value, is vital in retaining strong staff.

  • ....even if you don't 'get' what Employee Engagement is.

    What actually is Employee Engagement anyway?

    Whether youe an Engineering Director who fullys understands the concept of employee engagement or think you simply just don't have time for it whilst running a busy engineering firm, either way, Employee Engagement is a term used increasingly within not only large business but also SME's.

    In a nutshell, it: "is a workplace approach resulting in the right conditions for all members of an organisation to give of their best each day, committed to their organisation's goals and values, motivated to contribute to organisational success, with an enhanced sense of their own well-being."* 

    Here are 13 tips you can implement to increase your staff's happiness. 

    1. Clarifying goals and objectives from the outset with each staff member is imperative. If they understand what their job role is, they will be far happier. A lot of employee dissatisfaction comes from not clearly defining what each person's role is and what duties fall within their role.

    2. Why not hold a weekly meeting promoting the biggest achievements of the week? If this is tricky timewise, send an email to everyone at the end of the week. This will inform the staff of the highs of the week, ready to start work on Monday from a positive angle. 

    3. Social events are a great way for staff to interact and build relationships outside of the shop floor in a more relaxed environment. Whether it's a quick drink after work each month on pay day, to lunches with the Managers when targets are met, right through to big Christmas Parties, off-site events build stronger teams and people in different departments get to interact when they otherwise may not outside of the working environment.

    'Fuel motivation and have an employee of the month'

    4. Have an 'employee of the month' and get everyone to vote for their colleagues. Give the winner a certificate and a prize and announce it in front of the teams. People like to be recognised for a doing a great job in front of their peers whilst fueling motivation.

    5. Extra day's off, duvet days, or afternoon's off. Whatever your business calls them - being able to earn an extra day off is a fantastic incentive which will vastly appeal to some staff. Plus you have the added bonus it doesn't cost your business any cash. Letting staff have their birthday off ( or maybe the day after, if they like to celebrate) is a thoughtful gesture.

    'Encourage an open door policy - or maybe an anonymous suggestion box'

    6. Create an environment where you encourage people to speak up and know that they will not be judged or criticised. By having an open door policy staff are more likely to speak their mind and who knows, some fantastic ideas may come from them.


    7. Encourage health, fitness and good eating habits in the workplace. This can be small gestures from providing fresh fruit for staff to have access to throughout the day, fresh filtered water, to gym memberships. If you can't stretch to whole gym memberships perhaps talk to a local gym and agree on a group discount?

    8. Being mindful of staff and their stress levels are also increasingly important. Organise a meditation group or bring in massage therapists for the afternoon, are all gestures that could reduce your staff's anxiety and keep stress levels to a minimum.

    9. Celebrate work anniversaries - 'Jim, you've been here how long? Congratulations here's a bottle of bubbly." Also looks great posted on your social media pages too.

    'Support a local charity'

    10. Nominate a local charity and come up with ideas of how you can support them by raising funds. Perhaps choose a local charity that you can build a relationship with. A local homeless charity, food bank or hospice. Ask staff to vote for a charity they feel they would like to support.

    11. Arrange for an ice-cream van to turn up at your premises - who doesn't love ice-cream?

    12.Holding an awards night is a fantastic way to recognise staff for their efforts throughout the year. You can be creative with the categories as you like and even get your staff to vote for each other. You can hold it at your place of work or go all out and hire somewhere and turn it into a real party!

    13. Simply saying 'Thank you' sounds obvious but goes along way. Saying thank you for a job well done should never be underestimated.

    Keeping your employees engaged is key to a content and productive workforce where ideas thrive and staff are genuinely happy in their work environment.
