How mutual recommendations work in the talent business
Recently, a member of our core-team left our business.
We were sad to see him go, but, he left for bigger things having developed his own skills with us to a point where he could go on and make even more of difference. We wished him well.
One of the last conversations we had was around recommendations. He asked us for a statement on his work, attitude and the contribution he had made and we were happy to do so: a factual, positive letter on his time with us. We made it with one condition.
