A review of our past year - Building a team to last

by the Senior Leadership Team @ ClearPeople

05/02/2015

As the new financial year approaches, it is time to review the changes we’ve seen over the past 12 months. It’s clear to say that ClearPeople has undergone significant change. And admittedly it has been a bit of a challenge, but the change has been necessary - so many companies that fail to adapt as the industry evolves, fail themselves. To quote Harold Wilson: “He who rejects change is the architect of decay.”

But ClearPeople continues to grow from strength to strength. We’ve almost doubled our turnover in 2 years which has led to the growth of our Alicante team by 78% and our London team by 22%.

Such an achievement requires an evolution of business processes to sustain it. And we are really proud that with the appointment of a new Senior Leadership Team, this change has been managed effectively to the benefit of our business and our employees. 

Senior Leadership Team

Through small incremental changes over the past 12 months, ClearPeople has come to be in the leading position it is today. Our client work continues to be award-winning, with a recent project named the Best IT Project at the BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards, and we were also recognised as the first Microsoft UK partner to be awarded Cloud Platform Gold Competency for Microsoft Azure. This demonstrates our best-in-class capabilities in delivering Cloud platform based solutions to UK Enterprises.

Of course, with any form of change comes an element of uncertainty and we obviously had to accept that change does not suit everybody within an organisation. We have had to adapt our processes and internal structure to be able to meet the demand of our clients and that has seen some of our employees leave for pastures new. We wish them well in their endeavours and thank them for all their hard work and contribution. But it has meant that many new, talented experts have joined us and many of our staff (some who have been with us for more than 10 years) have embraced it. The Senior Leadership team have sought to provide stability through this period and as we approach the new financial year we are pleased to be in a position where these changes are starting to pay off.

Katya Linossi, Co-founder and Managing Director of ClearPeople says: “It’s an incredibly exciting time for ClearPeople as we continue to grow and add to the services we’re able to offer to our clients. We're proud to have built a really strong team, rather than a company of individuals, and I am confident that our team’s expertise will help us to maintain our position as one of London’s leading digital and technology agencies.”

Our ‘consultagency’ proposition, fusing the skills of technical consulting with creative digital marketing agency services, has been well received by our customers giving them real and clear business value. Everything ClearPeople does is focused on meeting our customer’s business objectives and providing value back to those that put their trust in us. This is evident in our 85% repeat business and referral rate.
