Goodman Masson, the largest Independent Financial Recruitment business in the UK, closed their offices at 1pm on Friday 18th September to host an Its a Knockout competition to say Thank you to their employees.
In a year where there have be unprecedented pressures on organisations to drive sales and return profit margins Goodman Masson have recorded record numbers. Already seeing their highest profit making month in their history and Q3 finishing 21% up on Q2 their ability to invest in their employee experience continues to increase.
The success has been down to their people executing a clearly defined sales plan and that hasnt been lost on Guy Hayward, CEO. On Friday he closed Goodman Massons office at 1pm and hosted an Its a knockout competition at the Honorable Artillery Company in the City followed by Champagne and Cocktails in the evening. Weve spent a significant amount of energies attracting the right people to our business in 2009 and building a unique employee experience. That strategy has been rewarded by an outstanding sales and profit performance. Closing the office at 1 oclock last Friday will be unheard of amongst our competitors in these markets but it is important that we recognize it is our people that have made this possible. Saying thank you by hosting a summer party was the right thing to do!'.
A competition over a series of eight outdoor activities all involving inflatables and water certainly beats being in the office.
