Redefining recruitment: A talk by Paul Dupuis, CEO Randstad India

Paul Dupuis takes one to the era of Julius Caesar who used the referral policy as a means of recruitment in his army.

Paul Dupuis begins with a relevant question i.e. ‘when did recruitment begin’ to which an interesting answer bounced off from the audience: ‘with Eve’. Paul agrees that this could be worth a philosophical debate and during his presentation takes us to the Caesar era. He says that it all began in 55BC when Julius Caesar decreed that any soldier who introduced a new soldier to his army will get a referral fee of 300 Sestertius! He says that Julius Caesar figured out what we are still dealing with today which is to say that ‘referrals are golden’ and that it is quite close to ‘employer branding’.
