Blue Signal Search is unlike any other recruiting firm of its kind – so naturally, we had to have a holiday party just as unique as we are. In January of 2019, we held the first annual Blue Signal Summit, a three-day team gathering to celebrate a year of industry success. Each day was jammed packed with learning, team building activities, industry speakers, games, awards, great food and festivities. We were able to wrap up 2018, set goals for 2019 and beyond, as well as celebrate all we have achieved thus far.
For the event, our entire staff joined under one roof in our new HQ in Phoenix, Arizona. This was the first time some of us met in person! In the spirit of team building, we had meetings where we reviewed our best practices, discussed our company values, and underwent advanced trainings.
Blue Signal brought in Pinnacle Society elite and top performing recruiter Joe Rice to discuss what is and is not working in recruiting today. We covered objectives about leadership, company culture, change management, and organizational growth. The team learned more about the industry and best practices to better serve our clients and candidates in the future.
Throughout our conferences, the team talked about our growth and about fine tuning our processes. We strategized as a company and talked about upcoming initiatives and long-term goals. Most importantly, we recognized the achievements from the last year and awarded those people who helped us get there.
In 2018, Blue Signal made 119 placements and worked on over 400 jobs. Our biggest year yet also saw 8 new hires and 4 major promotions. Looking ahead to 2019, we are training and onboarding a new class of 9 recruiters before the end of January.
The Summit helped us focus on what is most important – who we are and where we want to be. Saturday, we got together showcase our accomplishments. In the morning the sales team had a golf tournament at the Orange Tree Golf Resort. That evening, we met with our significant others at the beautiful Biltmore Hotel to finish the Summit with a formal dinner. This Blue Signal family is proud of 2018’s accomplishments and is ready to do what it takes to become the best recruiting firm on the planet!
