What a couple of years it has been since Covid landed. Without doubt the year 2020/21 was somewhat surreal. We are a great believer in the fact that the best things you ever achieve in life often come from the toughest challenges. At times you could be absolutely forgiven for not believing this, with endless hiring freezes and there being very little light at the end of the tunnel.
Despite having the experience of starting JPS at the heart of the recession in 2008 and being able to grow triple digit year on year, this was an entirely different world and without doubt the biggest professional challenge we had endured to date.
We are now able to reflect at the end of the 2021/22 having achieved a record revenue number in 15 years; with every single member of the team eclipsing their annual targets and career bests in excess of 200-500+%. With that being said, it is very true that your best achievements really do come from your hardest challenges.
So, what have now we learnt…
The primary reason for our success was to focus on the people within the business. It has been this exceptional culture, and above all the depth of character demonstrated by every person, which has been at the heart of these achievements.
In addition, from lessons learnt in 2008, what was essential is that we as a business evolved. This meant challenging all systems and models previously used to ensure they would be effective given the changing landscape, whilst sticking to the fundamental principles of success.
The biggest change and by far the greatest thing to have come out of the Covid era has been the evolution of JPS to become a truly global remote working model. This is allowing unprecedented levels of success and at the same time reaping the benefits of a much healthier work/life balance. Another significant benefit due to the remote model has been that we have been able to add top talent from various countries across the world to our team; enhancing the levels of expertise we can offer to our clients and candidates on a global basis 24/7.
As a result of the improved skill sets and over calibre within our team, we have achieved exponential growth on what was already an enviable client and candidate base, making JPS a recognised leader within many software markets. We are now the preferred growth partner of choice for a number of ambitious companies and professionals.
If you are a top performing search consultant or consultant looking for a team of overachievement and mature mindset, then there is no better time to join our organisation.
If you are hiring and looking for an organisation to partner with, who can identify and secure you the top passive talent to enable hyper growth; or a candidate looking to optimise their career pathway, then please reach out to any one of the team.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at JPS for all their hard work in achieving what has been truly remarkable.
Long may this continue, it is fantastic to see so many companies enjoying more positive times.
