Spencer Green GDS International believes, like any other successful businessman, that success is all about finding the ‘silver linings’.Yes, every cloud has a silver lining; so it’s not in fearing the cloud looming large overhead but in finding the silver lining that the key to success lies. The current economic climate, which is far from encouraging, is no doubt a cloud, a dark, threatening kind of cloud, but the fact that it’s raining talents all around is the silver lining in this case.
Here’s what Spencer Green himself says, “I believe that for many of us economic austerity will last for years, and the difficult times have just started. But when you’re chewing on life’s gristle, as Monty Python taught us, don’t worry. Give a whistle. In difficult times, companies get the pick of talented individuals; people that are hungry to get the right position and make it stick. That sounds like opportunity to me”. How GDS International benefits out of picking the right people and how the company makes use of its HR team has all been discussed in detail in an earlier post ‘Spencer Green GDS International concentrates on picking the right person’. So there’s no point in bringing it up once again. The point to be noted is this- just as it works out for Spencer Green GDS, it would all work out for you too; you just need to find the silver lining when the darkest of clouds loom threateningly upon you.
