The Hays Journal is a bi-annual publication providing insight and news for HR and recruitment professionals on the ever changing world of work.

As the world emerges from global recession, organisations are taking their cue to refocus on growth. This is invariably accompanied by corporate pledges to learn from past mistakes, to rectify things that were wrong and to put core values on the top of the business agenda. The sense is that this has all been said before.

The right people in the right positions. It’s the mantra for every recruiter and manager. It’s also a mantra for every sports team.

But in professional sport, the principles of great HR are more deeply embedded than you may expect.
