Should HR Have a Seat at the Boardroom Table?

It is no secret that the world around us is changing at a significant rate.

As a result, boards of experienced business leaders who focus on the strategic direction and protection of business interests are now finding that there is an ever-evolving focus on organisational change.

Written by EO Executives on Jul 05, 2018

Why are candidates untruthful during the interview process?

It may come as a surprise to know that a tremendous 81% of candidates (2015 report) have admitted to lying in a job interview. For the candidate it might seem the only way to land a new role, but for the employer this is likely to have a costly impact when the candidate does not have the right knowledge or skill set to lead a crucial business initiative.
