What is it like to work for Gemini People Ltd

Leadership
Leadership
With a nurturing ethos that supersedes any sense of hierarchy in the business, the senior management team at Gemini People are committed to leading the company through collaboration, fun, inspiration and integrity. They hold Friday wrap-up meetings for the whole company, where they publicly recognise the week's best efforts in the office. They are the first people in the office each morning and the last people to leave at night, they hold regular cross-team meetings, where they share client information and they also run a host of training courses to up-skill everyone in the company. They are always the first to be involved in Gemini CSR initiatives, they have an open door policy and are always there to talk to. The senior management team at Gemini People also lead by example and are the top performers in the business. They would never ask a team member to do something they wouldn't do themselves (even clean the kitchen on their team’s day on the rota!) and they frequently use WhatsApp as a quick way to chat about any issues their team members have out of hours.

Last year Gemini People spent a large portion of their profit on training their managers and hired an external business coach to work with managers on a 1-2-1 basis and in group sessions. The company now have a formal training programme for all of their managers which runs on a monthly basis. The training is spread out over 12 months and covers everything from learning about “emotional intelligence” through to “what does it mean to be a leader?” The training is being facilitated by the company’s Head of Talent, the Directors and the CEO and they have also appointed an external training company. The company also decided to split the management team into two groups so that managers are working in small groups and getting lots of attention in these sessions. Gemini People have recently rolled out a new review process and have been running one to one sessions with each of the managers on how to implement this process with their teams. Gemini People believe that everyone is an individual and one size does not fit all so they are conscious about this when it comes to training.
My Team
My Team
In 2015 Gemini People decided to bring together all the consultants that work in a similar market, creative and design. At the time there were 12 people that worked similar roles across a range of disciplines and markets. As a collaborative business Gemini People felt it was important to bring this group of talented employees together and allow them to share information, upskill the more junior members of the team and also become more active in their market as a collective. The company launched the Gemini Creative Forum and began to arrange weekly meetings, which would include open discussions about trends in the industry and talks from candidates to help others understand what they really do within the creative department, they also started to attend industry events and organise relevant trips. So far Gemini People have visited the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising, they have attended industry events like Ad:tech, Glug and Creative Pool Party, they have created a logo identity and have begun to write blogs for their social presence. This is the only forum like it within a creative recruitment business and it has been extremely well received by employees of Gemini People and their clients/candidates. As the business grows Gemini People want to make the GCF a legacy forum that will be handed on to the employees that progress in to the Management team over the course of the next year or two.
