Thrive Team: Alison Trodd & Martin Grady

Chichester, West Sussex – 20 February 2019 – Today marks the launch of The Thrive Team, a new company dedicated to discovering high-performing employees for clients, helping those organisations to prosper. At the same time, The Thrive Team works closely with the candidates they place, developing leadership skills, mental health awareness and resilience through a personalised coaching plan. This enables employees to settle in quickly and thrive in their new role.

Recent CIPD research showed that half of UK workers are in the wrong job. To help address this alarming level of mismatched employees, The Thrive Team uses structured interviews, psychometric assessments and aptitude/ability tests to match the right candidate with a job and organisation that is best suited to their skills, personality and ambition.

“Search and selection is at the heart of what we do and our carefully designed selection techniques – including a proven 10 step process – mitigate risk and maximise return on investment for clients by predicting each candidate’s performance,” said Martin Grady, co-founder of The Thrive Team. “We then offer a strong development programme, with coaching and self-care at its core. This is the key to optimising the employee’s performance and wellness in the workplace.”

The Thrive Team supports newly placed candidates through their transition from one company to the next, staying in close contact for the first three to six months and beyond. Mental health awareness training is also offered, which is fast-becoming essential for managerial and leadership roles – as well as being useful from a personal perspective, to assist good mental health.

“To help clients cultivate a motivated and productive workforce – with good attendance levels and reduced staff turnover – we have a number of courses and workshops available to build awareness of resilience, mental health and wellbeing, which we can run in-house. We also offer in-house and open courses in Mental Health First Aid, accredited through MHFA England,” said Alison Trodd, co-founder of The Thrive Team and a MHFA instructor.

“We genuinely care that people are happy in their careers and so do everything we can to give them the tools they need to thrive in the workplace, as well as in life,” she added.
