A NEW DIGITAL platform was launched this year for staff of Michael Page International Recruitment. It uses social learning, game design and video and mobile device capability to allow employees access to elearning in ways that suits them individually.
The company has a robust track record for nurturing home-grown talent and for promoting from within. The firm started with two founders above a London launderette in 1976. Today it employs more than 6,000 people in 35 countries — 1,132 of them at its 29 UK locations, headquartered in Weybridge, Surrey.
The company offers people opportunities for promotions through the ranks, with chief executive Steve Ingham being the ultimate example of this, having joined as a recruitment consultant back in 1987.
Opportunities to learn and grow seem limitless, say staff, who score this measure 72% positive — a top-10 result. The training they receive is beneficial (77%) and managers help employees fulfil their potential (75%). The top performers earn a place on an annual foreign jaunt and those who generate £1m-plus in revenue get extra holiday and hospitality tickets to events.
