Learning, Growth and Seasons Greetings
Whatever your plans are over the festive period, I’m sure you will have a mixture of feelings about the year that has just past.
We have undoubtedly learnt a lot about ourselves in these last 12 months. We have been more resilient than we ever thought we could be. We have been tested in so many ways, and yet here we are having overcome so many hurdles. Speaking for myself I know I have learnt a lot about what it takes to keep on going, to find the positives in some tough moments and to know that even though I may not immediately have the answer to a challenge, I am surrounded by smart, caring and hard- working people who do.
We have been through a lot, have achieved so much and have a lot to be proud of. Through COVID-19 the need to adapt has been thrust upon us, but we have also not been afraid to change ourselves from the inside too, as we grow as people and as businesses.
A good example of this is the implementation of Bullhorn into the Technology Recruitment business. It will make our work more effective and enjoyable, but it will also require training, change and positive new ways of working. It’s like when we first learnt to ride a bike, or drive a car – at first it feels uncomfortable, but then one day suddenly we realise we aren’t thinking about it anymore, we become expert. So, changes like this are good. We have been through uncertain times and the new year should see this settle down. I know we will all welcome focusing in on achieving the challenges we have set ourselves for the year ahead.
There is much to be excited about in the coming year and thankfully the rolling out of the COVID-19 vaccines across the world gives us all hope of being able to live the lives fully we all love once more.
As we head towards the end of the calendar year in many of our countries I wish everyone time to refresh and reflect and much peace and happiness with those who are central to your lives. Thank you for everything you have done this year to look after each other, our clients, contractors and candidates. I am so proud of being part of such a fantastic group of businesses.
