Capstone Recuitment – Glenn Marland: All About People

My guest in this episode is Glenn Marland, the Property director at Capstone Recruitment, one of Australia’s most established recruitment firms across the property and proptech space.

Getting your people right is absolutely essential in proptech and indeed in any business. You need to attract a team that has both the skills and the temperament to grow with you and help take your company to the next level. So in this episode Glenn and I discuss the current employment landscape, the common mistakes that proptechs make when hiring staff and how to avoid them.

Plus the recruitment industry was one of the first to be disrupted by technology with job websites among some of the first platforms to monetise digital through the posting of job ads. And yet we still have recruitment firms who specialise in delivering service and expert knowledge – so there’s some great insights for the future of real estate in this episode as well.
