Objective Paradigm President’s Club

In 2017, Objective Paradigm introduced the President’s Club to unleash the potential of our team. Our goal was to inspire employees in all functions of our recruitment firm to work together to achieve remarkable, measurable results that would be rewarded with a unique team experience.

Leadership developed thresholds for Recruitment, Sourcing and Sales. Goals ranged from making a minimum number of placements to qualify, to publishing content and attending networking events.

There were also thresholds for bringing in new leads, creating job orders, hosting webinars and other role specific tasks that went beyond the everyday value OP provides.

As a result, OP and Talution Group employees inspired and motivated each other and now we’re taking our first ever Objective Paradigm President’s Club crew to Playa Mujeres, Mexico to celebrate!

“This is a great group, I am very proud of their achievements and look forward to spending some time with them outside of the office. The President’s Club has had a positive response internally, I’m happy to see that an even larger group of our team is on pace to join in 2019.” – Ryan Pollock, Managing Partner, Objective Paradigm.

The Results

With the President’s Club in place, we noticed more enthusiasm when it came to attending networking events, we had more employees submit content for our blog and some members of our team spoke on panels and delivered educational sessions at industry events.

The competitive edge that the ongoing measurements put in place increased comradery and productivity and allowed us to showcase our talent internally. And we all know; most recruiters thrive on some friendly competition.
