Arrows Group appoints olympic gold medal winner Searle to launch High Performance Academy
Searle will share his experience in winning three Olympic rowing medals spanning 20 years to help Arrows Group Global adopt the skills, approaches, and behaviours that enable exceptional athletes achieve success.
Speaking at the company’s AGM, James Parsons, CEO for Arrows Group, expands on the decision to approach Greg and establish the High Performance Academy. “One of our founding principles 11 years ago was to be, and beat, the best. Sharpening our performance is an essential part of our vision to be the most respected recruiter. Greg will help us establish a market-leading coaching and development performance programme, and his sporting credentials absolutely align with our ambitions and values.”
Searle continues, “I’m excited that a company like Arrows Group wants to embrace the marginal gains philosophy. If you can improve every area of your business by 1%, those small gains add up to make a real difference. My expertise and experience gained from Olympic athlete development programmes will help the company’s employees analyse their performance, and identify where they can improve.”
Adrian Treacy, COO for Arrows Group, adds, “Impacting at every level of our business, the High Performance Academy adds to our investment in coaching and developing our employees. Greg is on board to encourage the behaviours and attitudes required to put us at the forefront of performance development. As we continue to grow and expand our brands, the Academy will focus on leadership, behaviours, success and goal setting for our growing number of employees. Ultimately, it comes to down to us all to adopt the disciplines and behaviours to reap the rewards of Greg’s involvement. We’d like to thank Greg for joining Arrows Group on our journey to become the most respected recruitment company.”
