Our values

We’re in the business of building long-lasting, mutually fulfilling connections.  We are highly motivated because we love having a positive impact on somebody’s future – be they a candidate who we help to launch a great career, or a business that welcomes a talented new colleague.

To us, these are the crucial ingredients for any successful connection:

Trust

Trust

We ask a lot of both our candidates and our clients.  We require full disclosure, which entails sharing lots of personal information and being honest about ambitions, strengths and weaknesses.  This implies trusting whoever is sitting on the other side of the table, together with having faith in our ethical approach and discretion.  We consistently go out of our way to earn your trust.

 

Within our YouConnect team, we completely trust each other’s intuition and insights. We believe expectations are surpassed when people are given the trust to outperform.

Empathy

Empathy

We’re dealing with actual people and real businesses.  Our assignments are potentially life-changing.  They can make entire families happier, and help companies to achieve or surpass their goals.  That’s why we undertake endlessly research into both the candidate and the role. Why we listen actively. Why we search ruthlessly. Why we lie awake at night when a promising connection does not come to fruition, and why we’re as happy as you are at signing. Your project is as important to us as it is to you.

 

Our decentralized approach requires the same level of trust.  It’s what other companies may refer to as teamwork, knowing when your colleague needs back-up.

Sustainability

Sustainability

A recruitment process can be as smooth as connecting two dots.  However, even these connections are only as good as their longevity, and their added value to both the candidate and the company. That’s what we mean by caring for life after signing, that’s what matters to us. (And that’s why most assignments entail more work).

 

We embrace this idea of sustainability in many ways, from taking our bike on the train to supporting local entrepreneurs.

Growth

Growth

Nothing beats the feeling of contributing to growth, that’s why we’re in this field.  When we connect two people, we do it because we can see added value for both.  Because we know our candidate will be able to spread their wings even further.  And because we’re confident they will bring our client a step closer to achieving their business goals.

 

Growth is also a personal ambition for all of us. We maximise our own growth by pooling expertise and staying up-to-date on our respective areas of expertise, but also by steadily building a healthy business as entrepreneurs.
