Marcus must stop using a lucky dip and learn fair and effective selection strategies.
Marcus’ unorthodox approach to running Cutting Edge includes his method of selecting recruits. Carol is appalled that he spins a globe to achieve diversity; Dion points out that drawing names from a hat is no guarantee of fairness. Marcus believes both are non-discriminatory ways to attract and retain diverse clients, and that knowing how to put up an ironing board will sift out the best people for a position. Tammy points out the importance of a structured approach to interviewing, while Serena and Carol note networking and keeping shortlists of talented candidates as effective tools for winning good recruits. After much thought, Marcus applies a brand new measuring stick in the interests of achieving fairness, diversity and great talent. He promotes his Gen Y nephew Dion.
Cutting Edge Communication training videos are designed to provoke discussion and response. Contemporary, fast paced, short, character driven, sitcom-style comedies, these courses take an innovative approach to reaching today's learners. Through laughter, discussion and reaction, we can all develop a more transparent and shared vision of how we wish to behave, how we manage ourselves, and how we cooperate with others.
While some find them insensitive or even outrageous, the vast majority of viewers and participants have found them to be refreshing, stimulating and ideal for injecting energy and enthusiasm back into learning.
