Greenacre Group Update
After a challenging two-years, organisations across the sector, and indeed across the globe, were forced to adapt their services and work patterns to accommodate the new hybrid work environment. It’s been a tricky transition for everyone; however, we were fortunate as a remote-ready company to adjust quickly, and were pleased to report our most successful year ever last quarter!
Like others who responded to the turbulence, we were able to pivot, increase agility and extend our suite of services, supporting those we partner with across the sector to develop their people and refocus on what really matters. As we embrace the changes sweeping across the sector, it will be important to remain focused, continue to adapt and work collectively to share knowledge, best practice and increase overall skill sets needed to move us forward.
Leading for Tomorrow
Building on the success of the previous two years’ leadership development programmes, our 2022 Leading for Tomorrow Programme launched in March, with a diverse line up of participants from organisations across the sector, and we’ve been excited to get started!
Last year, given the intensity of the pandemic, there was a heavy focus on building trust, managing expectations and navigating through uncertainty, as many leaders had to learn a new set of skills to lead their teams remotely. This year, there is a strong emphasis on understanding our purpose as leaders, and the programme will focus on developing individual strengths, working collaboratively and leading effectively through the current and future workplace challenges.
The Great Reshuffle
As an intuitive recruitment consultancy, we’ve had our hear to the ground and have been tracking the continuously fluctuating hiring environment since the pandemic began.
The beginning of the great reshuffle (that’s what we’re calling it for this segment) had led to many people in permanent roles starting to scout out recruiters such as ourselves for ‘the right thing if it came up,’ however, generally, people were staying put. Fast forward to 2022 and things are changing fast, with permanent placements now catching back up with interim roles, and higher numbers of Chief Executives, Directors and other heads of service becoming more common, suggesting ‘the great pivot’ (you heard it here first) is now underway.
