This is a quick introduction to Agoge coHired and the Auckland Account Manager role.
Andrew Nicol @ TEDx Ruakura - 20th June 2015
Agoge's CEO/Founder Andrew Nicol, was invited to speak at TEDx Ruakura in June 2015 about using business to Do Good.
Personality is that thing that we and others are perceived to be through our actions, words and interactions. Have you ever thought about your power to impact and change personality? What difference does it make to the world if the personalities you interact with are focused on ‘doing good’?
In this talk, Andrew puts a twist on a topic we have all heard before. Check out his talk and discover how Agoge is on a journey to really live out our vision of "People Matter ∴ Do Good."
It is something to bump into a family member of a recently employed onsite staff member, but what's more unique is being pulled aside by that family member;
"I hope you realize the impact that you have had on my brother"
He did not mean impact in the sense of putting his brother into work, but the respect and dignity he received throughout his job search with Agoge. When his brother had lost his hope and confidence in finding a job, both his hope and confidence were able to be restored through being caring.
All it takes is the time to smile, listen and genuinely value people as humans to give them hope.
During the application process the brother felt he was valued and like he mattered. Nothing remarkable or extraordinary needs to be done during this process, it just needs to be done with kindness. The brother was able to avoid feeling like a number or a "solution to a client problem" as he previously had.
Morale of the story: An interaction might not change the world but it could change the world for one person. Even through the hard situations, conversations and interactions people such as the brother enable Agoge to build a legacy. A legacy that everyone would leave feeling a little bit better than they did before meeting us because……… they matter.
It was a successful night for the Agoge team at the 2018 Seek Annual Recruitment awards!
Agoge was attending as finalists for the NZ Large Recruitment Agency of the Year; as well as our Hamilton Branch Manager, Andrew South, a finalist in the Recruitment Consultant of the Year category.
And it was amazing to be announced winners in both categories at the awards night!
For Agoge Founder, Andrew Nicol, winning the New Zealand Large Recruiter of the Year was recognition for the hard work of the team who go all out to genuinely care for people. “It goes to show you can be in business and do good,” Nicol said.
With a vision of ‘People Matter, therefore, Do Good’, Agoge is constantly looking for ways to do good, not only externally, but also for the many people it engages on client sites.
“Because we work with people in such a big way we are constantly challenging what we’re doing for our people and how we can do it better. It’s such an incredible honour to be recognised,” said Agoge’s Hamilton Branch Manager, Andrew South.
Thank you to our team for all their hard work and dedication to caring for our candidates, onsite staff, customers, and our local communities!
And of course, thank you to SEEK and the judges for your time & putting on yet another great event at the SARAs for 2018.
At our latest staff conference, we announced our Agoge Person of the Year for 2018. This award is presented to a member of the team who truly displays and lives by the Agoge vision of People Matter, therefore Do Good. This year it was awarded to Linda, our National Admin Support.
Linda has a huge commitment to her role in our Support Office. She is dedicated to supporting those around her and across the Agoge branches. Linda's ability and determination means that everything she touches, turns to 'done'. Linda is invaluable to us and a perfect reflection of our vision and values.
Linda first began at Agoge in 2011 where she became Training Coordinator for our Training business, and has been a valued member of the team ever since! In this role she looked after our trainers and managed the training as a whole along with its administration. After selling the Training business, Linda moved into her current role of National Admin Support and processes all payroll for all of our onsite staff.
With a large commitment to our onsite team and internal staff, Linda does an awesome job as she takes everything in her stride. Congratulations Linda, there is no denying that this award is very well deserved.
