As the article features, it is the diversity of national backgrounds which makes Zag’s international recruiting stand out: not just Europe, but Africa, Asia and Canada. Couple of questions occur. What explains dip in recruits from Canada? Why omission of South America and Australia? Considered “bad form” to recruit in St Mary’s “private” stock, or simply not enough potential recruits to make the distance worthwhile? Recruiting successfully in a nation seems to have an echo effect which piques interest in other recruits. What insights do you have?

Go Zags — everywhere talent can be found.
