The growing SOS family!

Recently, we looked at team training and encouragement, in companies, to nurture growth. We looked at its effect on team morale and, further down the line, on your business too. Following this, we’re pleased to tell you about our recent team additions and promotions, which have come about in Search Office Space in the last few weeks due to good training and the offer of progressive opportunities within the company.

From the start of the month, Mark Bott and Richard Winton moved into the roles of Senior Sales Consultants within the UK sales team, a step up from their previous roles in the Sales team.

Emily Wallis moved from Sales Support into a Sales role and SOS welcomed five new sales team members, Paul Deery, Ryan Armitt, Dave Carter Bromley, Josh Caplan and Natasha Collins.

Although having only been in the role for two weeks, Emily has fitted right in with the team, already receiving positive reviews from clients. She says, “I moved over to the sales role as I wanted more variety and excitement in my role - I like to be kept on my toes! I’ve really enjoying the first two weeks but it is a hard role as you need to be organised and on top of things (it’s basically juggling!). But hard work is always good and it makes you feel like you accomplish a lot in one day.”

Stephen Marsden, Global Sales Director, who has been guiding the new starters through their training, says the importance of team training is high. “It gives sales people market knowledge, helps them feel comfortable and able to help customers and gives structure to their role. The team feels valued because time has been invested in them, which then gives job satisfaction. To me, the most important thing is staff retention, as experienced people in our industry are more valued, and all of these factors lead to that.

“Once our new starters are fully trained, we look forward to seeing them thrive in their jobs and being able to offer them the promotions that other team members have worked hard to achieve. My role in the process is being a facilitator to their hard work and growth.”

We welcome our new team members and congratulate those moving into different roles. If you speak to one of them on the phone, make sure you say a quick hello!
