#131 – Hospitality Meets Abi Dunn – The Recruiter who definitely cares

What happens when you put two recruiters together to talk about people?

The answer is this weeks chat. Abi Dunn, Founder of Sixty Eight People (https://www.sixtyeightpeople.com/). I was connected with Abi through Jo Harley of Purple Cubed (Thanks Jo!!!) as Abi had conducted some very interesting research around candidate experience. We thought the world should here it so here we go.

Abi also covers her story so far and so we also get through:-

  • The state of things
  • Starting in pubs
  • Sylvia
  • Glass collecting
  • Revolution bars
  • GM at 21
  • The importance of that first career impression
  • What makes a good leader?
  • The joy of optics
  • Going self employed
  • Belief
  • No more no shows
  • Customer training
  • Abi’s research

And of course so much more.

Abi really brings the passion around the subject of candidate experience and we have a good old natter about all things people. My hope is you’ll get a lot of very useful takeaways that you can implement immediately.
