While taking care of some business things today I found out that one of our teams had hit an all time high for Clients Billed (one of our most important metrics) this past week. The reason this number is so important is that means we have many people working at many different businesses in our communities. The more businesses we work with the better the selections of jobs we can offer people to help them find the right career. If we could only measure two things in our business, this would be one of them.
I was ecstatic when I saw that number and was so proud of how all of the hard work of my teams had paid off and was now benefitting them, our clients, and the associates we put to work. As I started to type up a congratulations email to the teams I paused and decided that I should add some perspective. When I went back to old reports for comparison I was shocked and amazed at just how much growth my teams have had!
Way back in February of 2010 we made the call to expand in one territory to a second office. Since then we’ve expanded again and now have three offices in that area. In another market we’ve grown, and grown, and grown…
Back in 2010 those offices were putting people to work at 60 different businesses… Today, I am proud to say that my teams have people currently working at over 140 different businesses in the same markets!!!
How awesome is that? Thanks to the hard work of my teams we’ve more than doubled the number of different businesses we help people find their new career at. I am so pumped and proud of them!!!
When I first saw our client count I was very happy, but I was on top of the world when I stood back and got some perspective. Thanks for the awesomeness my Express Family!!!
