Ep 68 Jodi Walton and Dani Bieg on the future of work and innovation in recruitment

The workplace is in the midst of significant change. For some business owners this is something to fear while for others, like Jodi Walton and Dani Bieg, it is something to embrace.

Jodi and Dani are cofounders of Harrison McMillan, recognised as Australia’s Most Innovative Recruitment Agency by SEEK in 2016, and a great entrepreneurial story.  

They're changing the game through a new pay-as-you-go business model, and also through its own firm culture. 

At the Harrison McMillan office, digital detoxes, enforced lunch breaks and flexible working hours are standard. It sounds great in theory but is much more challenging in practice. Jodi and Dani explain the science behind it, how they measure the success of the initiatives and how they ensure peak performance for their clients. 

In fact, they’ve had over 120 clients nationally in under four years, so their approach is clearly being embraced as an alternative in the recruitment market.

Recruitment is a tough gig, for candidates, employers and recruiters themselves. Jodi and Dani talk about how the industry is changing .. and also share important tips for job seekers who want to separate themselves from the pack in a competitive job market.
