Pathways & Milestones: Two years of success
Posted on Monday, August 12, 2019 by Maire Gerrard — No comments
This August marks the second anniversary of the implementation of our promotion structure; Pathways & Milestones.
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. We are proud to have achieved this growth organically, with a focus on promoting from within as opposed to hiring for senior roles externally.
While this evidences our commitment to our employees, in order to ensure we retained the exceptional talent within the company and attracted the best and brightest new starters, we recognised the need to remain innovative in our offering. As a result of extensive research both internally and externally, Pathways & Milestones was born.
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, with over 400 promotions in the first two years for exceptional consultants surpassing the set benchmarks. Figures such as this prove the benefit of this model for Venn Group employees and are an attractive prospect for any aspiring recruitment consultants. Our reviews on Glassdoor frequently laud the opportunities that Pathways & Milestones provides:
“Fantastic promotion scheme, I have already received three promotions within less than two years”
“Pathways & Milestones - I really like having a structure where it's so clear what I can earn when. I felt like when I was interviewing with other companies, they were always hesitant to show me whole picture whereas here it is very clear”
"The Pathways & Milestones progression path means that you are able to easily track your next goal”
“The Pathways & Milestones progression pathway is clear, fair and highly rewarding”
With this in mind, we would like to congratulate everyone that has achieved career progression through the programme over the last two years, 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 & Milestones in the future.
