Creeping in to the festive period and moving towards the end of 2015, we thought we would share our successes from the past year and what you can expect from Mitchell Adam in 2016.
This year has been a particularly impressive year and we have seen phenomenal growth that is set to continue with exciting expansion plans for next year.
So how have we changed this year and what have we been up to?
The first and perhaps the biggest 2015 event for Mitchell Adam was our office move! We moved from a small serviced office with a shared kitchen and meeting rooms into a stunning Grade 2 listed building five times the size, complete with 4 interview rooms, a board room and fully fitted kitchen and lounge area located on Newhall Street, right in the heart of the Colmore Business District.
The office move also saw the team size grow during the summer as we welcomed Emma, Ben, Ron, Matt, Dannika and Chris to the team.
To celebrate huge success at the end of the second quarter, the whole team was rewarded as we flew out for a short break to Marbella where we enjoyed sun, sea and many a cocktail to celebrate. Next, at the end of the third quarter we again packed our bags and flew up to Edinburgh to enjoy the comedy Fringe Festival and again celebrate the results of our hard work.
The year also saw growth in our advertising, branding and marketing as we attended many events including being general sponsors to Birmingham’s largest annual accountancy event, the ICAEW dinner. We worked hard on driving forward the brand with new products such as our transparent piggy banks and our latest addition, the bright yellow company branded umbrellas which we have been sending out to brighten up Birmingham and keep our clients covered this rainy season.
With a focus on bringing new people to join the team we have created a bespoke Mitchell Adam training programme and employee benefits scheme to attract the best consultants to work with us. Both Directors take training and development very seriously and so put together the ultimate coaching plan to develop a highly successful consultant. The training is a greatly detailed document that is used to guide consultants through their first weeks and months with us, and to ensure they have every aid in becoming a specialist recruiter in their market.
We also recently launched an impressive employee benefits scheme that offers a variety of huge discounts on local shops, bars and restaurants along with discounts on gym memberships and holidays. In addition to this we started also offering salary sacrifice options such as city centre car parking, cycle to work schemes and child care vouchers.
We are all very much looking forward the next 12 months with lots of exciting changes and plans that will see even more growth and development for us. As ever we are always on the look out for driven and passionate people to come and work with and enjoy being part of a successful, progressive company.
Before we look ahead to next year too much, we have a December that is as busy as any other month and with all eyes on the prize of a trip to Barcelona next year as our quarterly incentive, nobody here is taking their foot off the gas.
Here’s to a prosperous 2016.
