Shop Floor: CV's, Networking and Women Who Go Back to Work
This week Shop Floor, in association with the Inspirational Development Group, discusses the importance of a CV in the recruitment process with Darren Harlock, who runs a new recruitment company based on technology. The company, Covocate, ran experiment with CVs a few weeks ago and demonstrated that we may need to find an alternative to it. Nick Peters also speaks with Roger Gorman, a technologist and entrepreneur who is making significant waves in the HR technology sector with his ProFinda service- a revolution in resourcing. Nick also looks at why 43% of women find the barriers to returning to work in the City after a career break too high with Lisa Unwin, founder of the She’s Back campaign. Then finally Nick and Johanne Malin, from the Inspirational Development Group, look at how workforces feel increasingly distant from those that lead them. Why does this happen and what can be done to counter it?

Company Casebook: Cauli Rice
Linda Lewis visits the people behind Cauli Rice an innovative range of low carb, low calory rice made from cauliflower which available in supermarkets. About a year ago Gem Misa was one of the finalists slightly nervously lined up to pitch their business idea to Richard Branson in the annual Virgin competition for start-ups and new businesses. An advertising campaign was part of their prize, Cauli Rice got a lot of media attention. And not long afterwards their innovative range of low carb, low calorie rice made from cauliflower was launched in supermarkets and online. Since then, co-founders Gem Misa and her husband Jamie have raised more investment, won more prizes and are already planning various new flavours and business extras, such as a subscription service for people watching their weight who want their low carbs delivered straight to the door in a regular order. With sales soaring, they've also opened an office in Battersea, South London.
