The difference is we care about your experience regardless of the outcome. We do what is right regardless of the outcome. We are always open to learning and hearing your feedback. We read, we listen, we try new things. Sometimes we fail, but we never stop trying or learning.
Keith asked me to write a blog, and that’s what I thought about. For our first blog, writing about what makes us different from other recruiters. I also thought about writing about food, as most of my favorite blogs are about food, but I didn’t think that would fly this early on. I’ve worked for people who talked a lot about ethics and those who never mentioned them. But I’ve never worked with a group of people who each individually have such a high work ethic, strong business ethic, and really never mention any of that, they just get it done. No one would last long here if they were, well um disruptive. 😉 . Keith sets the tone and hires wisely.
What does that mean to you? Clients and candidates alike can count on us for a lot. We can’t make our client give you an offer, and we can’t make you accept an offer, all we can do is choose who we work with and how we work, so we focus on that. I hope that we are living up to our own expectations and exceeding yours and I’d like to hear from you either way. We’ll be doing lots more blogging, some surveys, and closely reading your comments and emails. We want to be different, we want to be better and we need your help in assessing that. Let us know what topics you’d like to see us blog about.
We know that we are financially successful, so we are doing something right. 2012 was our best year ever and 2013 looks to be even better, Q2 was our best quarter of all time. All of that matters, a lot, but not as much as doing what’s right, helping our clients build world class organizations and helping our candidates see and act on their potential . The true bottom line to us is adding value to everyone that we work with.
As I’m writing this I’m watching the Little League World Series with my family. If we, at Neighbors & Associates can work/play with as much spirit and heart as these boys do, well then we will continue to win.
