Is the grass greener?

Why do people change jobs, or want to change jobs? Working in the recruitment industry, we hear these questions on a daily (sometimes hourly!) basis. After all of our years of experience, we know that no one-size-fits-all answer exists. Making the decision to embark on a career change journey is not something that should be taken lightly. At Impact Recruitment, we have found it beneficial to encourage our candidates to first deeply consider why they have decided to make a change before taking any next steps… or leaps.

Exciting news! Our very own Mark Fenwick, Team Lead of Impact Recruitment’s Legal Division, is a contributing author in the Fall 2017 edition of the BCPA’s Paralegal Press.

Impact hits the links – without leaving the office!

And just like that, it’s June. Between meetings, interviews and welcoming a bunch of new faces to our team, it’s been a crazy couple of months here at Impact! This time our sister company, Impactemps, was tasked with organizing the bi-monthly team building event. They jumped right into planning a fun outdoor activity, but after noticing the weather forecast was calling for rain on the day of the party they scrapped their original idea and came up with something even better! Led by the Impact jack-of-all-trades, Jarrett, they went about designing an elaborate indoor mini-golf course around the office.

It’s been said that the US Open boasts conditions more difficult than any other golf tournament. We think whoever made this claim has very clearly never played 9 holes at Impact Recruitment. Impactemps crafted their course chock full of obstacles and hazards, twists and turns, and attempted to distract the players with “adult beverages” like Jello shots, beergaritas and Caesars.

In typical Impact fashion (no pun intended), the teams of golfers jumped at the opportunity to dress up in costume. From safety vests and helmets to Blue Jays socks and basketball jerseys, no one will ever claim that we aren’t an enthusiastic bunch.

When all the teams had completed the course (and had more than enough Jello shots), the sun was out and we were able to enjoy a delicious dinner of BBQ, salads and sundaes on the patio. It was another wonderful evening with everybody at Impact, we’re thrilled to be growing and adding many new faces to our team. Thanks to Impactemps for putting on an incredible party – that will definitely be a difficult act to follow!

  • Master plans

  • Jello shot while you play, miss?

  • Handsome gents.

  • Baseball socks during a golf game?

  • Typical Building Division.

  • It was a bit hectic.

  • Halfway through!

  • We have almost mastered the art of the group selfie...

  • Stella manned the BBQ while we golfed! What a champ.

  • The winners!

  • And the losers.

A botched scavenger hunt, a broken elevator and a patio party

We take our parties pretty seriously here at Impact Recruitment: in October the Building Division got us to dress up in costumes and sing our hearts out at karaoke; in December our management team arranged an amazing Christmas party at Lift; mid-February the Operations Division put our bowling skills to the test at Commodore Lanes, and come April Professional Services was determined to throw a company party that would be just as memorable.

The plan was to break into teams and complete an elaborate scavenger hunt around the city, then race back to the office for a BBQ, beers, and the first official patio party of the year. Needless to say, things didn’t quite go to plan. Being a fairly competitive bunch, the clock struck 4pm and the entire office raced for the doors at lightning speed. Three teams crammed their way into one elevator, and almost immediately, three teams found themselves stuck in that same elevator for the next hour and a half.

Only one team was spared this claustrophobic fate and, unaware that their colleagues were currently imprisoned somewhere between the first and second floor of the building, they wasted no time getting started. Sprinting around the city completing a serious of hilarious (read: embarrassing) challenges, the girls posed with Gassy Jack, practiced yoga in lululemon, and even did the macarena in a crowded Gastown bar. It’s rumoured that at one point Katie O’Brien exclaimed gleefully to her team, “I think we’re going to win!”. Yes, Katie, we think so too. If only by default.

After a brief appearance by the fire brigade, the anticlimactic rescue of 75% of the Impact Recruitment staff, and breaking the news to Katie’s team that they were in fact the only team actually participating, everyone was more than ready to hit the patio with a beer in hand and some burgers on the grill.

Though it didn’t exactly go to plan, it was a great evening of delicious food and lots of laughs. Many thanks to Professional Services for hosting a company party that will certainly go down in history as one of the true “Legends of Impact”. Cheers to botched plans making the best stories and to team building activities being a delight when you work with such a wonderful bunch of people.

‘Til next time, we’ll see you around. But not in the elevator, because we’ll be taking the stairs.

‘Tis the season!

It’s always go-go-go here at Impact, and the holiday season is certainly no exception! Despite everybody’s busy schedules, we knew it was important to spend some time together as a team looking back on the past year and enjoying some Christmas festivities (and maybe an egg nog or two). Over the month of December we enjoyed a Secret Santa gift exchange, an amazing Christmas party at LIFT Bar and Grill, and we welcomed Deb, our newest addition, to Impactemps! We’ve been so lucky to have such a wonderful 2016, and we can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store. From all of us at Impact, have a very happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year!
