Serendipity

In January 2017, we launched a new initiative within Crossbridge: a monthly Team-Serendipity-Moment (TSM). We can already hear you think: “Serendi.., what??" 

Dear reader, let us introduce to you ‘Serendipity’: (n.) an unexpected event that makes you happy.

Each TSM has the purpose to trigger a smile on our colleagues’ faces. Therefore, each month someone of the Crossbridge-team is responsible to bring a pleasant surprise or create a mini teambuilding activity. To add an extra surprise factor to the TSM, the TSM-responsible has been selected anonymously.

We must admit, the previous TSM’s proved that our colleagues can be quite creative. The first TSM was organized by Miek: to prepare ourselves for the national 'Tournee Mineral' campaign in February, she created an alcohol-free SOS-kit for each of us. This kit included the recipe and all necessary ingredients to make a delicious non-alcoholic cocktail.

A couple of weeks later, our intern Laurien surprised everyone with a personalised compliment jar. This jar contains 52 compliments, one for each week of the year. A year full of smiles ensured!

The TSM of March was about FOOD, what else?! Food has always been able to put smiles on people’s faces (especially on Crossbridgers’ faces), so Marjolijn provided us with a delicious and copious lunch!

The TSM of this month, well, good question… Actually we have no idea what it will be. The only information that we got, is that it’s been scheduled on May 29th on a secret location. Other than this, the next TSM is still shrouded in mystery. You’re curious? So are we!

Stay tuned to find out more! 

             

Figs after easter

Figs after Easter don’t work anymore these days. Being proactive is crucial in all aspects of business – and is more than ever true in the ‘War for talent’.

Young talented people in sales, marketing, supply chain, IT and other specific areas get plenty of job offers before they even graduate.  Once they have their first working experience, it’s even harder to attract and retain them.

In order to help you win this war for talent and to attract successful ‘keepers’, we decided to bring our pro-cruitment services to the next level. We have the pleasure to announce two new Crossbridge services:

  • Campus pro-cruitment.  If you’re looking for ambitious youngsters to join your company as of this summer, you may need to act now. We have been coaching more than 1000 graduating students since September. The coming weeks, we will get back in touch with them. If you’re part of the program, we proactively position your company and screen for potential matches. Do you want to participate? Get in touch with Eva: eva@crossbridge.be, 0479 49 45 27.
  • Career relaunch. We celebrated our 5th anniversary last year, so quite some talented youngsters that have been coached by Crossbridge in the past have an outstanding first working experience. As a trusted advisor we know who these high potentials are and what they want. If you want to attract talented youngsters with a first working experience (1-4 years), you might want to use our career relaunch service. Marleen will be happy to provide you with more information: marleen@crossbridge.be or 0495 64 38 28.

 

Are you ready to build your future? We are. 

Crossbridge Cares, our contribution to the Planet

Serendipity, ‘that unexpected meeting that changes your life’. Onverwacht geluk. Daar willen we bij Crossbridge deel van uitmaken! Niet enkel binnen onze organisatie, maar ook in het grotere geheel. Onder de noemer ‘Crossbridge Cares’ hebben we dan ook de beslissing genomen ons sociaal te engageren ten voordelen van de maatschappij in zijn geheel! Zo kwamen we bij het initiatief om elke maand onszelf te challengen in diverse onderwerpen en enkele maatschappelijke waarden een duwtje in de juiste richting te geven.  Wij hopen op deze manier ons steentje bij te dragen aan een gebalanceerde samenleving.

 

Voor de ‘Sustainable Challenge’ van november werd een vleesvrije-week gekozen. In dit initiatief zullen we samen met het Crossbridge-team een week lang geen vlees eten.  Wist je dat de helft van de dieren uiteindelijk op iemand’s bord terecht komt? Wij willen hier alvast deze week iets aan veranderen, want alle beetjes helpen!
