Welcome 2015 – it’s arrived with a BANG at Sprint People!
We trust that everyone had a great Christmas, a super fun New Year’s Eve, spent time with loved ones and enjoyed had some well-deserved R&R. The start of a new year is the perfect time to put new plans in place, both personally and professionally. Here at Sprint Headquarters we are no different.
Personally I’ve committed to a dry January (day 27 and I’m killing it!). I am undertaking the Peter Walsh 31 day anti-clutter challenge and I am off the high amounts of bread and sugar I used to consume and quite simply I have to say, I’m feeling on the top of the world!
Sprint is also going through some exciting changes that I’d like to share with you…
Nyome B (Boyd) has now morphed into Nyome B (Blanchard) as she was married in beautiful Queenstown over the Christmas break. And after close to 4.5 years with Sprint, NB has made the decision to further explore the world of HR and will be leaving us in the coming weeks. It will be a sad day for me as I’ll be losing my little buddy, but also a very happy and exciting day as I’ll be so proud to see her take that next step in her career. She has literally grown up before my eyes and I couldn’t have asked for a better employee. Whilst NB could never be ‘replaced’ we do have a couple of exciting new starters joining the team.
Ben Pearson – Operations Manager Extraordinaire! I’ve known Ben for close to 15 years and have recruited for him across every business he has been a part of. His ability to whip a business into shape, drive productivity and efficiencies, manage people and essentially ‘make things happen’ has always astounded me. Our worlds collided, the time was right and I feel very fortunate to now have him join the Sprint family. He’ll be running the Sprint ‘Engine Room’ and trust me when I say he doesn’t’ muck around, so watch this space!
Alexandra Cosby– Candidate Manager (CEO of all Candidates). Having literally just arrived in Sydney over the Christmas holidays from the UK, Alexandra registered with Sprint for temp work. I knew within about 1 minute that she was never actually going to be sent out to a client, I was keeping this one for myself. Super bright, energetic, engaging and polished. That fact that she’s drop dead gorgeous didn’t pass me either but besides that she is one of those girls that you just can’t help but like.
Alexandra joins us with a Bachelors’ degree in Theology, is a born leader and a natural over achiever. She has represented her school in numerous sports including Netball and Athletics, was Sports House Captain, School Prefect and is very well traveled.
She has gained valuable office, customer service and events coordination experience over the past 4 years and is now ready to really kick start her career here in Australia. With her infectious energy we know for sure that our candidates will love working with her.
We are also seeking two new Recruitment Consultants and are currently interviewing to fill those positions. If you know of any consultants who are currently looking, or if you have met a great Consultant in the past who you feel would fit well in our team then we’d love to hear about them (referral fee of up to $1000 payable).
There is also an office move on the cards in the coming months, a new website is in production, on-line timesheet system, a Sprint You-Tube channel and plenty of fun events (e.g. trivia night, training groups, wine appreciation course, open air cinema night and make-up lessons by MAC cosmetics). So it’s All HAPPENING in 2015! We are looking forward to working with you in the future, getting to know you better and hopefully helping you not only in your ‘World of Work’ but also in your quest to be the best version of ‘You’ that you can be.
