Posted By James Hawley, EVP, Hays US on Thursday, Nov 23, 2017
Hays US reached a new earnings record for the four-week period ending October 20, largely driven by great results from our New York office. This office hit a major milestone in that period thanks to an exceptional performance by our construction and property team.
I’m very proud of this amazing team. Everyone continues to step up and raise the bar every period and I know this is still just the tip of the iceberg as we continue to grow our presence in the US markets.
With four specialisms, New York's result reflects the expansion of the US business helping to drive our collective success across the board. Led by Alex Powell, Regional VP with almost 18 years with Hays, who moved to New York from New Zealand four years ago, the business has gone from strength to strength and the highlight was the 15-member strong construction and property team billing almost double their previous best.
“It’s so rewarding to lead a team where every member goes above and beyond to hit their targets and support each other. The competitive, supportive team culture makes it a great fun environment to thrive in,” Alex says. “Everyone is passionate about finding the right person for the right job and it shows in our results. For anyone in the New York office the only thing limiting their results or careers is their own ambition and effort.”
The New York IT team couldn't let C&P get all the glory. Northeast Regional MD IT Leslie Knight had one of her busiest months yet, helping tip the office over the line to hit the new record!
