It's a great job when it all comes together isn't it?
The last 12 months haven't been the best in industry, many people struggling to stay afloat, keep themselves relevant and employed across all markets. But TODAY, I got my groove back...
It didn't start well today. The bat signal was being loud and clear from a distressed constituent (AKA A grumpy/distressed call from the business). A hiring emergency was happening... "holy recruitment issues Batman" I thought. I was informed that we needed people... 2 people, to complete our process successfully and hired to start on Monday (it's Thursday today) or the world as we know it would cease to exist. (Maybe not that extreme, but from the tone of the call it wasn't too far away)
No-one else in the business was free..... THIS WAS A JOB FOR.....
wait for it...
It was time to shine... My AWESOME team clicked into gear. Challenge? Ha! I repeat HA! I laugh in the face of a challenge.. to quote an amazing bit of American cinematography.. (you pick if I'm being sarcastic or not!) "Bring it ON!" It was amazing to watch. A sleeping giant awakening, ahh the buzz, I'm smiling at the remembered vision.
ACTIVITY! ACTIVITY! ACTIVITY! I swear smoke was coming up from the phones, creativity oozing from the pores.... At the end of the day, the team was able to look at each other... They'd found the unfindable, solved that business problem, influenced the immovable force to change course, pulled the rabbit out of the hat and solved that business issue. Oh I love it.. the sweet sweet taste of victory.
This is what we do. This is why we do it. Recruitment makes a difference, and I love the days where what I know to be true is seriously quantifiable and visible to all.
