Yeah Buoy!

Team NZ





What a fantastic day at the office for Team New Zealand yesterday!  We have been enthralled with the sailing –  and to have the regatta between lockdowns here in NZ, captured the hearts of not just the avid yachties among us. (Red socks included😊)

Red Sox Fraser People









From Mothers Day 1995 to St Patricks Day 2021 – New Zealand is now the first nation to successfully challenge and defend the America’s cup twice!

While the boat “Te Rehutai” is certainly a champion,  it’s the fantastic team work and the strength of the team that came through. 

Job Market

As we head further into 2021, feedback is the job market, on the whole, is growing steadily, but the more dramatic bounce back will be from industries that were hit the hardest.

However, candidate priorities may be changing, check out our poll below –  it could be a good time to review your recruitment strategy to attract the best talent in this environment.

 Have a great weekend!

We at Fraser People like to use Zoom, but these tips will apply to any video conferencing tool.

Fraser People Poll

Many of us had to adapt very quickly to working from home (WFH) last year. We have been talking with clients and candidates lately about how much flexibility they have to work from home. 🏡

For businesses who continued the WFH whenever their people wanted – an interesting trend has developed – more people are now coming back into the office more often. Are they missing the camaraderie of their team?

This got us thinking…. Will remote working/WFH be a requirement businesses will need to offer to attract talent in future or not? 🤔

Check out the results of a poll we ran on Linked In. Flexibility is definitely a talking point.
