WELCOME TO DEVELOPING THE BEST IN YOUR TEAM
We’re a specialist training and development company that genuinely grows recruitment, sales and service companies. And we are very particular about doing it the right way.
Click below to hear what our participants have to say:
We blend training, coaching, mentoring and consultancy to design programmes to suit your business, your people and your style.
We do this by helping to have everything in place to create tailored training and development programmes that are completely aligned with your clearly-defined strategy for growth, and ingrained with your differentiators, values, standards and infrastructure.
This means that everyone can apply the learning straight away, making an immediate, lasting impact. And, for many businesses it can be a game-changer.
When the essence of a business is not reflected in its infrastructure, people can be disadvantaged by poorly communicated expectations, which can limit their ability to excel, creating under-performance.
Generic training on top of this can make application difficult, so although the experience can be enjoyable, initial enthusiasm, recall and use of the learning can quickly diminish. This leads to undeveloped talent and minimal return on investment.
Ensuring your differentiators, values and standards are reflected throughout your operational and people-related processes will empower your people to thrive. This is the starting point to creating a high performance culture, in which your values are ‘lived and breathed’.
Julian Long, Founder Managing Director of Foundation Recruitment
So far we would comfortably attribute a 25%+ improvement to our company’s bottom line, to the work Absolutely Business has put into our company and people to date. And in the current financial year, we are confident that we will deliver a 50%+ growth on last year.
Richard Colgan, Founder & CEO of Oakleaf Partnership Limited
I first started working with Denise over three years ago, when she was asked to work with the Oakleaf Board to help drive greater efficiencies and improve communication. Her facilitation approach and style is the most impressive I have experienced over the many years I have been working in recruitment: it is challenging, without being excessively confrontational; it is sensitive, without ignoring the key outcomes desired: and it delivers the desired results – in the financial year just gone, we delivered a 17% top-line and 27% EBIT growth.
Katie Mellor, Director of Sales and Operations of Chefs Jobs UK
At a time that is traditionally our quietest two months of the year, we saw a massive increase in activity, resulting in £26,000 more revenue compared to the same period in the previous year. The next financial year shows a solid 13% growth is set to rise.
Cindy Johnson, Managing Director of K2 Recruitment
My team’s business development activity has increased by 22%, based on much improved commercial awareness; each person is confident of what we are, what we stand for and how we benefit our clients. And the team is no longer shy of marketing K2 to focus on winning the right clients who are aligned with our approach and quality. This has enabled us to create a lot of opportunity for our local candidates, which is so important to business growth for us.
John Maxted, Entrepreneur and Founder/Former CEO of Digby Morgan
In what was without doubt the most difficult year in the history of our industry we managed to achieve an EBIT in the UK of just under £1m, retain our key people and maintain a positive working environment. Absolutely Business was clearly a significant factor in our success.
