It’s that time of year again, when we make New Year Resolutions. Things we’re going to do differently, more of, less of. Things we’ve always wanted to do, don’t want to do ever again – life changing things.
But when you think of the word itself, “resolution” it’s not very positive is it? “I’m resolved to finding a new job”, sounds like a chore. Let’s face it, most New Year Resolutions are. They’re the habits that die hard, the things we enjoy but are bad for us. So, if it is a chore, why give them up? Surely, changes should be life affirming not done under duress.
Let’s have New Year Revolutions instead! In fact, let’s just have revolutions all year round. The language is so much more positive. It fires up the imagination to passion, purpose, determination – it needs to change and we’re going to change it! (*waves flag in exaggerated mannner, with hair streaming in the wind*)
Wote Street People’s New Year Revolution is to carry out 25 things in celebration of our 25 years in business. So far we’ve rebranded, launched a new website, had a 1980’s day to celebrate our Silver Anniversary (any excuse to dress up) and we’re about to take our database to the cloud. Now that IS revolutionary for us.
We’re also looking to raise money for a local charity with an inter-company cricket match; take part in Dryathlon this January; have a pancake challenge; an office bake off (noticing a food theme here?); treasure hunt and quiz night amongst other things.
So if looking for a new job is your resolution – bin it – and start a revolution instead. Dust down your passion, be determined to find the role you want and get purpose back into your life – after all, find a job you love and you’ll never have to ” work” again.
Long live the revolution!
In recruitment, as in life, things rarely work out as expected. The news reminds us daily that it’s actually wise to expect the unexpected. For example, you’ve got to wonder if there’s a teeny weeny bit of Theresa May’s brain that wishes she had pre-prepared a plan B for how Brexit is unfolding… We[…..]
Recruitment has always been an exciting industry. There’s nothing quite like the buzz of helping someone make their next career move. Knowing that you have been a part of helping people achieve the challenge, the promotion, the pay increase, or the work/life balance they need, is immensely satisfying. The current climate is definitely in the[…..]
We were as shocked as you when we read this headline. But, yes, a recent Gallup survey highlighted a worrying statistic from the worldwide workplace; 87% of employees worldwide are not engaged at work. It would appear that from full-time workers in Frankfurt, to shift-workers in Shanghai, to those in part time work in Basingstoke,[…..]
As a recruitment agency in Basingstoke, we love to meet up with other local businesses to build relationships and discuss current topics that affect us all.

Who can remember life before Google?! Once upon a time, if you were looking for a job in Basingstoke you’d go to the yell.com website to search for a phone number…or maybe even scour the Basingstoke Gazette, community noticeboard, Thomson directory or Yellow Pages. These days, Google is so ubiquitous it’s basically become a verb.[…..]
