Following a hard fought battle in the office, the contracts team won the chance to have a private magic show. So Wednesday afternoon was spent be dazzled and amazed over a few glasses of fine wine. Theres worst ways to spend a Wednesday.
We've been to pretty much every restaurant in Sydney, we've been to more amazing venues than we can count, we've reviewed them all. And here it is, our first ever, unanimous 5/5 review. Want to know which venue finally hit the mark with everyone? Quay Restaurant? No. Bennelong? No. That posh place at the top of the Shangri La? No.
In the end it was zombie shooting, VR and sickeningly large alcoholic ice cream sundaes that won us over. Does that make us shallow and childish? Maybe. Will we be back there again? Definitely.
The Recruitment Company's top performers for July had a lunch club experience with a difference - an afternoon at Archie Brothers. Amazingly this is, in all our years of rating the top restaurants and venues in Sydney, the first 5/5 overall rating we have ever received! Read about the experience here.
Sometimes, as a recruitment agency, its not easy to be an employer of choice. Its a high pressure industry with a notoriously high staff churn rate. But, (and we're blowing our own trumpet a bit here), we've worked hard at it. And this effort has been rewarded by those nice people over at Australian Business Awards who have named us as Employers of Choice in the 2018 ABA's.
We often get asked by other companies about how we create a good culture. For us the secret sauce is to continually find the balance between intensity and fun.
Its nice to work in a company where everyone feels safe a…
The Recruitment Company and our pals over at Wisr teamed up to help raise funds for The Cancer Council. We raised $300 and filled our bellies with some amazing treats; some home made and some not so home made. All in all a great morning was had by everyone, lots of cakes were eaten and no doubt many gyms were visited later on.
In 2017 Seek named us as their SARA Most Innovative Recruitment Agency. In this interview, our CEO Geoff Millar talks about what it means for us as a company, the mindset that got us there and what gets him out of bed in the morning.
So the top performers in the team headed down to Aria for the afternoon to celebrate their success in March. Heres what they thought of the iconic Sydney restaurant and TRC Lunch Club regular venue
Overall score: 4/5
Aria was lovely and relaxing, and the Sydney weather was being kind, so the view was pretty awesome. Whilst the food and wine (especially the wine) was amazing, I reckon they let themselves down a bit when it came to service.
It had a fairly snooty vibe, one of those placed where you feel a bit stupid for not knowing how to pronounce a rare cheese from the south of…
To celebrate our new found recruitment relationship and Wisr's recent rebranding (from DirectMoney), The Recruitment Company and Wisr co-hosted an inter-company mini Olympics in the Domain.
The weather held out for what was an epic battle between co-mingled teams from both companies. The competition, reminiscent of epic sporting battles through history (think Rumble in the Jungle, the run after the battle of Marathon, the 4 Minute Mile etc), included classic tests of character, strength and endurance such as the 'Egg and Spoon' race, the 'Balloon Between the Knees' race, the '7 Legged' rac…
Last week the team headed off to Luna Park for an afternoon of fun and shenanigans.
We had a great time re-living our youth playing on the dodgems, riding the merry-go-round and for those that were really game, walking through a new haunted house (think real people jumping out at you!).
The afternoon was capped off by some lovely drinks and canapes in our private space at the venue, The Deck.
With a stunning view of the harbour, our glorious bridge and an amazing sun set.
It was an afternoon well enjoyed.
Well, don’t just take my word for it, here’s what some of the team had to say:
