Argent Recruitment believe that any organisation's staff are their greatest asset and this philosophy is the bedrock upon which all our actions are built. A stable, motivated and empowered rosta of employees are the greatest engine for growth that any business can possess and conversely there is no surer guarantee of failure than an ever-changing, unenthusiastic workforce. As such our aim is always to provide long-term placements who will add increasing value to the business in question and justify the initial investment. This may seem counter-intuitive as we make our money from placing staff but all employment agencies depend, to a large extent, on word of mouth, from both clients and candidates, for growth and as such a record of ultimately unsuccessful placements is in no-one's interest, least of all ours.
At Argent we aim to use both information technology and bespoke software as tools to promote efficiency and enable our staff to provide the highest possible levels of service. As an organisation we are highly decentralised, with web-hosted packages enabling our staff to quickly get the information they need whether they are in an office or at home. We encourage flexible working for our staff and are keen to promote a healthy work-life balance and as such believe that a consultancy environment is a more likely route to long-term success than a heavily driven sales culture.
