International Day of Happiness is an annual celebration of people and what makes them happy.
It’s a great way to think about all the things that you’re thankful for and that put a smile on your face. To celebrate International Day Of Happiness, here at Recruit 121, we’ve been asking our members of staff what it is that makes them feel all warm and fuzzy inside:
Name: Mike Collins
Role: Global SAP Business Development Consultant
What makes you smile: The Summer Sun – Going out for beers in the Sun and Summer BBQ’s with friends and family.
What professional achievements have made you particularly happy: My professional achievement was reaching a personal best for number of contractors on-site working for me last year and hitting my company targets for 2014 on the way.
Name: Katie Braithwaite
Role: Global Delivery Consultant
What makes you smile: Travelling to exotic locations always makes me smile. It’s very difficult not to smile when the sun is shining!
What professional achievements have made you particularly happy: It is the ‘little’ achievements – receiving a grateful note from candidates or clients to thank me for the service Recruit121 has provided them with is a nice reminder that our hard work does not go unnoticed.
Name: Josh Williams
Role: Senior Account Manager
What makes you smile: I love watching live Rugby. Nothing makes me smile more than watching Wales win at the Millennium Stadium .
What professional achievements have made you particularly happy: Following a successful 2014 at Recruit 121 I was promoted within the Corporate Account Department, which was a nice acknowledgement of how I am progressing and the effort I have put in.
Role: Placement Manager
What makes you smile: After having recently moved back to Wales from a two year stint in Dubai, spending time with my friends and family is what makes me happy the most. And snacks – lots and lots of snacks.
What professional achievements have made you particularly happy: One thing I try to employ within the working environment is to work outside of my comfort zone; something of which I did a lot whilst working abroad. Developing additional skills, as well as building confidence, has made my working life a lot more pleasant and engaging for the client, employer and myself alike.
