I cannot believe we’re 1 week away from completing our first month being established as Maxwell Bond. It’s been a truly tremendous start, with a steep learning curve – I would never have thought it would be so difficult to get 2 pictures put up in the office. I had an epic fail moment putting 4 holes in the wall, then paying £25 for a handyman to put 2 pictures up!!!! Someone should look into recruiting these people….
The response has been great, people have genuinely wanted to help myself and Mike progress. We’ve had ex clients, candidates, HR Managers, Recruitment Directors/Managers or ex colleagues get in touch and offer guidance, support and help. In what is often painted as a cut throat industry, it’s great to see so much humanity.
For those who’ve been following us, please find the finishing touches of Maxwell Bond’s first office. There’s just one thing left to add which I’ll get to at the end of this post.
The self-help cabinet: I’m an avid believer that leaders are readers. Life is all about growth, we should always look to grow & develop ourselves. At Maxwell Bond we have a number of books available for people to continuously improve. I also believe “motion creates emotion”, so we also allow our staff to have longer lunch breaks to work out their frustrations
at the gym (I’ve already broke the punch bag at the gym).
With that comes healthy living & eating hence the fruit. There’s also the lovely Bonsai Tree which allegedly helps relieve stress, fight fatigue, whilst also cleaning and purifying the air. You may not believe in all of this and I’m not entirely certain I do but if we’re looking to improve every little bit of our people’s lives, surely that in itself will become a self-fulfilling prophecy meaning our people will in turn, give back too.
With the tremendous start we’ve had, exceeding all projections, we’re now looking to add our 2nd team member. If you like the look of the above and want to join us on the journey of changing IT recruitment for the better, please get in touch! We’d love to hear from you!
