It’s that time of year again, the time for review and resolution. Just before Christmas I asked the team to share with me their resolutions for our clients and candidates. What would they do differently to improve our service and delivery? It was intended as an internal exercise, however I was overwhelmed with the response, so I thought I would share.
I wrote recently about my original vision for blueskies - to create a home for creative and marketing recruitment, founded on real marketing experience and a passion for the industry. blueskies consultants aim to get to know our clients and candidates so we can provide valuable connections that benefit both parties. We aim to strengthen our knowledge and our focus on the most relevant markets. To be energised and set to continue to bring blueskies to the recruitment market, proud to stand by what we do and who we are!
Hearing the team’s commitment to this through their resolutions was both reassuring and exciting. We’ve worked hard in 2018 on refreshing our mission, vision and values
. The management team have been flat out and I’m grateful for their energy and expertise.
So, enough from me and over to them…
