  • Are CFOs the CEOs in the making?

    March 2011: Recently, public attention has been trained on the role of finance professionals as never before.

This paper debates the qualities and demands of the CFO in this new climate.
  • The Employability Skills Challenge

    June 2010: This report is the result of research into the employability skills issue conducted by Scottish Investment Operations (SIO) and the Financial Services Skills Council (FSSC). The survey sought employer and agency views on candidate perceptions of the financial services sector in Scotland, with Hudson contributing it's views on employablity issues as well as possible solutions. 
  • Sport: to show or not to show, that is the question...

    June 2010: As the sporting event of 2010 kicks off, what factors will employers need to consider over the duration of the World Cup? What will happen to absenteeism, productivity, motivation and team bonding? Hudson surveyed its candidates across a broad range of sectors and industries in the UK & Ireland, to find out what effect they thought showing World Cup games in the office would have on them and their colleagues.

    This report builds upon previous Hudson research, 'The Impact of Sport on the Workplace'. Whilst it was commissioned in 2006, the findings are still very valid today.
  • Our Secret Phobia...? CVs and Interviews

    April 2010: Look up ‘interview advice’ or ‘CV advice’ on Google and you’ll get tens of millions of web entries. It is clear there is a huge demand for help when looking and applying for a job. Many people don’t feel confident when it comes to penning their CV and aren’t sure what prospective employers most want to see on it. And, when they do get to an interview, they feel even more uncertain about the best way to conduct themselves. We went directly to the people who make the decisions and asked them, and compiled this authoritative report and guide to CVs and interviews.
