You would like to earn some extra points to put your country in the lead? Send us a testimonial from your international customers like Jane from Totaljobs did:

“I have engaged the services of Total Jobs and The Network to support our European operating companies with advertising on Stepstone.  The package put together for us by Ian Bradley has proven to be a cost effective way of advertising on the Stepstone site, and the support thus far has been excellent. I have been particularly impressed by the level of contact I have received both by telephone and on email and I feel that should I have any queries, Ian is well placed to be able to provide the answers to them. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ian as an Account Manager, and of course recommending the products offered by Total Jobs and The Network.”

New ranking containing extra points for October

In October all of you had the chance to win some extra points on the occassion of our 10th anniversary.

Now that the month is over, we awarded these 10 extra points for all contracts with signature date between 1st and 31st of October. A small change at first sight, but a nice difference e.g. for the US who is now placed ahead of the Netherlands in the category inside sales.

See here who is leading today:

UK and US new in the category inside sales, France now leading in field sales

After we experienced a bit of trouble with the blog, WordPress now fixed everything up – sorry for the inconvenience!

Find here the latest news:

In the inside sales category, we have 2 new countries: UK and US. Jordan Kerr from UK registers his contract with 155 points and takes a nice second position for his country.

France managed to renew their contracts with Newell Rubbermaid, ESRF and SPIE OGS – a great achievement and a well deserved first rank for Hélène and her team this week!

We received some additional contracts that could not yet be counted as some details were missing. Make sure to double check if you provided all information to ensure your contracts will be counted for the next ranking. Here is a small reminder of what is needed:

  •     Value of the international part of the contract
    • “Value” means the sold value after any kind of discount
    •  “of the international part” means that you must take away the value that is used in your country. In case of Global Flexible Package (GFP), 100% of the GFP value will be taken into consideration at first. At the end of the contest, the Network team will check the value that was used locally, will discount that value from the international part and will recalculate the points accordingly.
  •     Name of the sales person who signed the deal (not your manager!)
  •     Status of the sales person:
    •     Inside sale
    •     Key account
  •     Contract information:
    •    New customer
    •     Upsell
    •     Renewal (in case of renewal: please specify the amount and date of last year’s (former) contract)

Don’t loose any points – hand in your contracts signed in July asap!

New contest, new rules – to avoid that some of you are participating on a regular basis and then get overtaken by someone who enters his/her contracts at the very last minute (no finger pointing ;-)), we have introduced a new rule for this year’s contest: Contracts may only be registered 3 months after signature date.

So make sure to check asap if all your contracts from beginning of July are registered! If not, send them to Julien right away!

See who is in the contest so far:

Inside_SalesField_SalesIn case you have any colleagues that have not yet handed in their contracts, make sure they do so as you can only win if your whole team is involved!

It’s getting cold outside…

Don’t feel like putting on your coat and taking the umbrella? You would rather want to enjoy some more summertime?

Imagine you had 1,500 EUR and all you need to do is to decide on where you want to go. If you need a little inspiration, see here a nice picture from Steve Willems, last year’s winner at StepStone Belgium, who used his prize to spend a long weekend at a charming little “maison d’hôtes” in France.

Where will you go on holiday?


And for all those who are still enjoying nice weather, I am sure you wouldn’t mind some time off in a nice place either, right?

Hand in your contracts now and start dreaming about your next holidays! Just send all details to Julien!

5 countries in the contest!

2 more countries entered the contest and are now neck-and-neck in the field sales competition – but even within the different partners we have quite a few people who need to share their rank.

Hand in your new contracts to take the step ahead of your colleagues and move up with your team!

See here who is leading today – special greets to Hélène and her team, we would love to see a copy of the posters you will put up!
