Workstyle Freestyle 025 – ‘Applications’


You alright, Alex? Ah, is it me, or are application forms getting longer and longer these days? Oh, is that a long one you’ve got there? Yes, it’s ridiculously long! Anywho, welcome to Workstyle Freestyle with him, Alex Hirst, and with me, Lizzie Penny. And today we are talking about applications! We are, and actually it might surprise you to learn that this is, in fact, the very short Hoxby application! Oh brilliant. Why do you want to be a Hoxby? And what does the Workstyle movement mean to you? So since we started Hoxby four years ago, we’ve had about 20,000 applications to join the wonderful Hoxby community. And we responded to that by having a longer and longer application form, but then we thought, this isn’t fair… we’re going to cut this right down and just ask one question, which is the question – it’s kinda a question with two parts… which we care about more than anything else. And we’re hoping what that will do will is enable people to just focus on selling themselves in the best possible way, with really clear articulation of what joining Hoxby is going to really mean for them, and hopefully that will help us ensure that everyone who comes in to the Hoxby community is really part of the culture that we are trying to create and is going to stand to gain most from being apart of it. And we hear that some people are a bit intimidated by the question, don’t worry – just give it your best shot! Just have a think about what matters to you and what we are doing by asking this question is we’re trying to stop wasting people’s time with them re-engineering their cv to death, and instead focus on giving people a chance to talk about the things that they are passionate about and show their interests and their values and their connection, hopefully, to the Hoxby purpose. That’s what it’s all about. That’s all that matters. So if you want to take part and want to get involved in Hoxby, apply now, answer that question, it’s very simple, if you think you know someone you ought to become a Hoxby then by all means, send them this video, and send them to hoxby.com to apply. Can you share it with three people please? Please? Easy! That would be great. Fab, see you next time! See you next time. Bye!
