My humans employ (although I’m a dog, I do choose my words carefully) online recruitment techniques for all their major decisions. There is the research, the scrutinising of available products/candidates, testing and referencing said products before finally taking the plunge.
As with online recruitment when his clients are searching for a new employee, this method is used by my human for the new car, furniture, camera, in fact all electronic gadgets, not to mention his new favourite piece of kitchen equipment, the Acme beer can chicken roaster. (This may also be my new favourite piece of kitchen equipment – highly recommended).
Anyway, the reason I mention all this is that the same process has been put into action to recruit… a new dog!
Yes, after months of in-house meetings and discussions involving all the key personnel (three generations of the family), budgetary analysis, several visits to the kennels, and a lengthy interview process, the new recruit was appointed and brought home in the family car.
Can’t say I was totally impressed. However, we have all been the new dog at some point in our lives and whilst we’d expect a little bit of respect from the wet-behind-the-ears generation, a little bit of maturity and wisdom from senior personnel will help to welcome the newcomer to the fold. There are certain in-house rules to learn, such as which items of furniture are out of bounds, which toys belong to me (and are not for sharing) and most importantly, there is a pecking order at the works’ canteen!
All in all, the new recruit is fitting in fine. Although, the family did overlook one rather vital factor. Like the company that were ready to expand their workforce and spent months looking for a new designer, finding the perfect recruit for just £595 via Hunt4Staff’s flat fee recruitment package, who turned up on her first day to find that they’d forgotten to buy a new desk – my family realised they hadn’t bought a new bed for the pup. Only one thing for it – we had to share.
The new dog is aptly named – Biscuit. She certainly takes it.
Next week I’ll tell you about Biscuit’s first day at work. Yes, she’s coming with me to Hunt4Staff Towers on Monday. I have a feeling my human’s staff may be distracted…
