Every year the top performers at Hydrogen Group are rewarded a trip abroad. Earlier this year we visited Cancun, for five days of fun in the sun. But in 2017 it’s going to be a little chillier as we hit the ski slopes in Val Thorens, France.
Just over half way into the year and we've already got our first qualifiers: Joshua Dada, Chloe Lam-Moores, Louis Thng and Veena Pirelli.
Having been at Hydrogen for less than a year, we spoke to Louis and Chloe to find out how these ‘rookies’ secured their place on the trip.
When Chloe first joined, she decided early on to use this annual incentive as a medium-term goal, to help measure her performance and as a source of motivation. She attributes much of her success to the training Hydrogen provided. “During my first four weeks at Hydrogen I stuck to a strict training schedule and had over 10 presentations to prepare over 10 weeks. I was quickly equipped with market knowledge, which meant that I could start sourcing candidates within the first couple of months of starting.”
None of this would have mattered though had she not been willing to learn. As she says: “You need to take it on yourself to become knowledgeable within your own market, and a lot of this is gained from doing you own research, above and beyond the initial training you’re given.”
Louis attributes his success to his team and manager. “My team-mates and my team manager, James Murueta, have provided me with a ton of useful tips. I trust their advice, and their support has allowed me to develop a style of work which suits both me and the company.” His style has also been moulded by his persistence in everything he does. Whether it’s probing a candidate for more information, chasing down hiring managers for reviews and feedback or being prompt in responding to our clients and candidates. “Winning a spot on this trip has shown me that Hydrogen recognises and rewards staff across all practices, tenures, and even borders. No effort will go unnoticed, as long as you do your best!”
