When it comes to sales calls, the recruitment team at Driver Hire Croydon are leaders. And we’re not just talking locally; this is on a national scale.
They recently collected the Driver Hire National Sales Day winners’ award for booking the most appointments in a single day. “It’s all part of an annual competition across the whole of the Driver Hire network,” says Tony Goacher, who has just celebrated his first birthday as the owner and franchisee of Driver Hire Croydon’s office. “There have been two National Sales days so far this year. We were the regional winners in the first round and both regional and national winners in the second round.”
On a National Sales day the whole of Driver Hire’s 100 plus office network competes to see how many appointments they can win in a single day. Live TV broadcasts keep competitors up to date with the scores. Extra points are earned if, later, an appointment is turned into actual business.
Overall the Driver Hire Croydon team is enjoying an outstanding year; sales are currently 44% up year to date, putting them into Driver Hire’s top 30 best performing offices. If business continues at its current level, Tony and his team are in line to hit £1m turnover – an all-time record for the office. To accommodate the growing business and an additional member of staff, they’ve also moved to larger premises.
“We really pulled the stops out to win this latest round, winning business with both national blue chip accounts and top local companies,” Tony continues. “The team were rewarded with a £2,500 prize to be spent on electrical goods. We’re now in line to win an even tastier prize – £7,500 of holiday vouchers.”
