Data released by Companies House shows there were fewer new businesses started in 2017 than the previous year. However, research shows that this hasn’t affected technology firms – in fact the number of new tech start-ups increased by 60% last year. To put it another way, a staggering 10,016 programming and software development businesses were launched in the UK in 2017.
Yep, it’s that time of year again when we start to predict and set our sights on the new year.
Hopefully, it’s been another fruitful year for your business in every sense.
Whether that’s enjoying a positive increase in revenue, an improvement in staff retention or exponential growth in both your finances and personnel.

As a talent acquisition team, one of the most important feats to achieve is to able to implement a structured and scalable process that can process hundreds or thousands of applicants across multiple locations. If you’ve accomplished this, then this puts you in the best of class category and you’re in a very good position to attract top talent.
But what’s next?
Much has been written about the millennial generation and its impact on the workplace in general. But what, specifically, can you do as a law firm to engage with this demographic group? And what changes can you make to ensure you’re recruiting and retaining the very best of Generation Y?
What is a millennial?
2018, like most years in current remembrance, is shaping up to be a game changer of sorts in the recruiting area. New trends are being introduced and established trends are experiencing seismic shifts. In a bid to hire the best, companies are vying to get the attention of all the candidates who are highly skilled.
Emerging technologies like AI and Virtual Reality are proving instrumental in solving the challenges faced by the hiring industry.
As the war for top talent continues to intensify, recruiters are compelled to re-think their recruitment strategies. The mounting pressure on recruiters to attract high-quality candidates with an increasing shortage of top-choice talent has lead many employers to implement talent acquisition software to tap elusive talent while easing the workload of recruiters. Investing in talent acquisition software has several far-reaching benefits for your business.
The recruitment industry is evolving at such a pace at the moment that sometimes it can feel impossible to keep up. But instead of fearing the changes – or worse, ignoring or resisting them – remember it’s those recruiters who embrace change that come out top, particularly when there’s so much competition out there.
It’s around this time of year when swathes of fresh young minds are entering the world of work for the very first time. And as they embark on their search for that perfect employer, I feel acutely aware that those things that were once important to me when I was first entering the world of work back in the 1980s, are in many ways incomparable to what matters most to a jobseeker first starting out in 2018.
