UP Magazine – Issue 8 out now!

Published: 26th March 2020

Brewster McBride, part of the Brewster Partners Recruitment Group, are delighted to announce the latest edition of our Unique People magazine. This is the 8th issue that we have published, and the magazine aims to provide intelligent perspectives for business leaders.

Colonel George Kilburn MBE gives us an insight into his fascinating military service and his transition from the armed services to life in a civilian role as he enters his 10th year as Clerk to the Cutlers’ Company in Sheffield. We also speak to Mat Grey (Group MD at OSL Group) who delves into some of the difficulties facing many manufacturing firms in the Yorkshire region and highlights the key characteristics and attributes that he feels make a good leader.

Andy Roberts, E-Commerce Director at Ebuyer.com tells us about their companies company’s history, from small beginnings in a Sheffield garage twenty years ago to being an online tech retailer with a turnover of over £200 million.

We also take a look at some of the hot topics and key trends facing businesses at the minute. One of these being ‘Tackling the talent shortage’. The ‘war on talent’. This continues to be an on-going problem across all sectors and no organisation is immune to the scarcity of qualified individuals that are currently available and actively looking for employment. This shouldn’t be shied away from though, as there are plenty of ways to tackle the talent gap.

In another feature, we reflect on ‘Why workplace diversity is crucial for business’, and how hiring a diverse group of employees is not only crucial from an equality and moral perspective, it can be pivotal to a company’s strength and survival.
