Nine contractors of Southwark-based outsourced sales and marketing experts Source Marketing Direct will fly to New York as part of their continuous professional development programme.
The firm also revealed that there will be a trip to the South African capital of Johannesburg in October for top performing contractors. Back in February 2018, it was noted that the firm has been making strides to ensure that international travel is incorporated into their company culture, and part of life at Source Marketing Direct. It now appears that this ‘work perk’ has been fully assimilated – a quality that Managing Director Hector Montalvo believes holds great stead among millennials.
The collective will be in the ‘big apple’ to see the world-famous sights of Times Square and the Statue of Liberty. They will also attend a sales and marketing award ceremony, and spend time in one of Source’s partner offices on Wall Street.
“We believe business travel develops new ideas, and allows our contractors to return with a fresh perspective – becoming more measured thinkers. The New York trip will allow us to examine breaking trends in foreign markets that could catch on back home, so the benefits also trickle right the way down to our clients,” stated Managing Director of Source Marketing Direct, Hector Montalvo.
The United Kingdom, like many other countries, has witnessed a great surge in appreciation for the additional work perk of business travel over the course of the last few years. Indeed, for the modern worker, a good salary simply isn’t enough to catch the eye – there has to be perks that are substantial or aligned enough to sway them one way or the other.
It is thought that this – accompanied by discovering new trends in sales and marketing and building a network of global relationships – is very much what the firm’s MD had in mind when he established the business travel initiatives into Source Marketing Direct’s yearly calendar.
“We feel that we’re living up to the business travel expectations of the British workforce. We pride ourselves in being extremely flexible, and going wherever we need to in order to satisfy the requests of our people and our clients,” concluded Montalvo.
