Successes in 2023 – A message from the MD

Wow, what a year we have had here at H2R Selection for2023!

As we begin to think about Christmas (and taking a well-deserved break) we are also super excited for 2024!

We have broken a number of records here at H2R Selection this year and a big part of our success has been our amazing team, our industry-led events, promoting our brand and our work in supporting some amazing Charities including theMarmalade Trust, Cancer Research UK and Children’sHospice Southwest in which we have raised just under £4k.

One of the biggest things that I am particularly proud of is the H2R Selection team and our strong commitment to providing a quality service.
We really do care at every step of the way for each of our clients and work hard to build long term relationships.

On the HR & recruitment side we have worked very closely with our clients and candidates and have placed some extraordinary talent across IT, Sales, Marketing, Finance and HR roles this year.

All of us at H2R Selection are very excited about 2024 and looking forward to continuing to support many of our existing clients and building new relationships with businesses in the future.

Trends for 2024 – Emerging A.I.

The growing emergence of generative AI with Chat GPT as well as an increasing presence of AI automation in the workplace, its ability to shift through high volumes of data and perform more complex tasks is unprecedented in providing greater efficiency, productivity and competitive advantage.

However, it has left many business leaders with the dilemma of how best to implement it to serve their organisations and its impact on their workforce. Despite Elon Musk’s recent affirmation that “AI will make jobs kind of pointless”, this seems unlikely.

According to the Harvard Business School ‘Contrary to humans, AI abilities are only responsive to the data available to it, whereas humans can imagine, anticipate, feel, and judge changing situations.

These abilities are unique to humans, which means that while AI has its place in removing some repetitive tasks, business owners will need to ensure their employees are equipped with relevant digital skills in the future to work with AI models and establish what new skills they require to benefit their businesses moving forward.
