Pathways & Milestones - A pivotal year
Posted on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 by Maire Gerrard — No comments
Since Venn Group’s beginnings in 2001, we have grown from a small consultancy of five people to a national, multi-office organisation of over 300 consultants. While we are proud of this monumental growth, ultimately Venn Group’s vision is to be the leading specialist for interim and contract recruitment in the UK.
In order to achieve this goal, it is pivotal that Venn Group remains committed to its valued employees. To retain the incredible talent within the company, and attract high calibre consultants in the making, research was conducted on how best to approach career advancement. After much consultation, a new model for progression, recognition and reward was formed and implemented; Pathways and Milestones.
A year on, now a familiar concept on the sales floors, this transparent and performance-based route for promotion offers clear thresholds and financial incentives for consultants to aim towards. The model was created to boost career development, with weekly billing milestones that determine progression. Working alongside the existing team commission structure that is integral to Venn Group, it also maximises individual consultants’ earning potential.
Since its implementation, the success of the programme can be evidenced. In the year prior to the programme there were 53 promotions within Venn Group. However, during Pathways and Milestones’ launch year this figure has more than quadrupled, with 225 promotions for exceptional consultants surpassing the set benchmarks. Figures such as these prove the benefit of this model for Venn Group employees, and are an attractive prospect for any aspiring recruitment consultants.
From a business perspective, Venn Group is thriving more than ever after the introduction of Pathways and Milestones. Throughout the year, fees have continually been on the rise and company targets are being beaten month on month. This momentum ensures that we will continue to further our reputation as a market leader in the field.
With this in mind, we would like to congratulate everyone that has achieved career progression through the programme in the last 12 months, and thank all our consultants for their ongoing efforts towards Venn Group’s growing success. We are very much looking forward to rewarding your accomplishments through Pathways and Milestones in the future.
