“Your business, like your life, does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” – Jim Rohn
I know that many of you have been waiting patiently for this blog, asking yourselves, ‘Where has Q4B gone? When are those great blogs going to be posted again? What is happening to their business?”
Well this blog is intended to answer those questions and even some more pressing ones.
First of all, Q4B never went anywhere. We did take a break from the social media world as was explained in the last Q4Blog. Since then we have gone through some major reorganization, restructuring and reinvention of the company. In other words, we made some changes.
Reorganization – I was asked to take over the day to day running of the company. Our former management team decided to move on to pursue other interests and it is my intent to build on and leverage the great contributions they made to Q4B. You will be hearing more about additions to the Q4B team over the next couple of months through the Q4Blog and our web site www.q4b.com.
Restructuring – We have opened an office in the Denver area primarily because that is where I live and have contacts with a number of business leaders in the markets that we plan to support.
These markets will include Oil and Gas, Energy and Utilities, Healthcare and Technology. None of these are new markets for Q4B. We have over the years been quite successful in each of these markets and have supported a number of successful clients in each. In the past few years we had become more focused on the Oil and Gas market to the exclusion of the other three. We are now moving back into these other markets to offer our expanded services to companies looking for great talent.
We have also broadened our service offerings to take advantage of our relationships with current and former clients and the experience of our recruiting support staff. These service offerings will include Staff Augmentation, Direct Hire as well as Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO).
Reinvention – We are implementing new technology that will allow for better candidate experience and management as well as better coordination between clients, candidates and our company.
We are also planning to beef up our presence on LinkedIn Groups, Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and become more engaged and part of the dialogue and not just a casual contributor. We want to start the conversations not just listen to them.
All of this will take time. But we all have the same amount of time to work with. It is what we do with OUR time that can make a difference.
I hope that the time that you have spent reading this, my first Q4Blog has been worth it.
Change is Good!
