Easy Online Recruitment triumphs at Ad Astra Awards 2016
• Annual Awards organised by Business Mentor & Scalability Coach Martin Norbury celebrates achievements of its UK members
• Deeside-based Easy Online Recruitment recognised for setting up effective performance measures
Easy Online Recruitment, based in Deeside, beat off strong competition from fellow members across the UK at the recent Ad Astra Awards 2016. Hosted by Scalability Coach Martin Norbury, Easy Online Recruitment won the Blues and Twos Award 2016; an accolade praising the company’s focus on measuring, and improving upon, activity and performance.
The Blues and Twos Award category looks at how effective a business is in setting up a dashboard of alerts (activities leading to outcomes such as leads or enquiries), and alarms (the output themselves including sales numbers, gross margin and profit). For any business to understand where it is, it needs some kind of measures in place to determine how far on (or off) target it is. The business maxim from Peter Drucker, ‘what gets measured, gets managed’, is very true and helps the business with key milestones.
Easy Online Recruitment has been working with Martin for just over four months as part of the Advocate Program; a new approach to the principles of the Non-Executive Director which brings all the benefits and advantages “big” business have to the small-to-medium-sized business.
Martin commented: “For a lot of businesses there is a lag between activity and results, and as such measuring the alerts and alarms are fundamental. Congratulations to Adam who has invested a lot of time in expertly developing his dashboard. His business can now tell him if it is not working; before it is too late to change. This backs-up the core values that Adam has instilled at Easy Online Recruitment: working harder and smarter.”
Adam Butler, owner and founder of Easy Online Recruitment, commented: “It’s not the most glamourous side of running your business, but it is absolutely fundamental to get right. Our ethos at Easy Online Recruitment is to help companies achieve top talent for less by connecting the right people to the right organisations; so we’re naturally delighted to be honoured. Our dashboard gives me immediate access to real-time data and insight to ensure we maintain the highest quality of services, and provides me with the confidence to make informed business decisions”.
