Advent - The Big Chill Published: 29th November 2011 Source: admin.talent-match.co.uk

"December is a short month” – At 31 days, it’s actually one of the longest. With the way Christmas falls this year, however, most would agree that we probably only have 15 (or maybe 16) working days to get any real business conducted. Throw in a few Christmas parties (the fallout and recovery days), employees taking annual leave to do a bit of shopping and a general feeling of seasonal chilling out AND it really is a very short month.

At the same time, everyone is looking for a good start to the next calendar year and anticipating the need to get off to a flyer. Whilst I’m not advocating a Scrooge like work ethic in the build up to Christmas – instead of writing off much of December – Advent presents a world of opportunity, as a new door opens every day.

It's our first Christmas at Talent Match and, whilst we intend to enjoy the festivities, we know that it will be a busy period for us. Many of our clients are planning intakes for the New Year and, very wisely, are getting this process underway in the weeks building up to the festive season. If you need new employees in your business during the first few weeks of the New Year – don’t sit and wait.

 

Now is definitely the time to get that process underway. The Talent Match Elves (look out for out upcoming online Christmas Card) are ready to help. We work with our clients to ensure they meet their demanding targets and genuinely share the buden. Hopefully allowing them time for a few mince pies and the odd schooner of Sherry.

If you need Agents or Advisors, in any discipline, now or into the New Year, get in touch. www.talent-match.co.uk

Also keep an eye out for details of our Advent calendar competition – details will be published very shortly.
