Nurturing staff (and potted plant) helps recruiter Yala grow

Nurturing staff and a potted plant help recruitment team Yala grow.
Co-founder Barry Prost talking to The Times UK on what it takes to make it.

“At the start, there were just the two of us and a potted plant,” he says. “The dark days.” Instead of operating on the basis of fees per placement, Yala established itself as a service provider, paid on a monthly subscription basis.

“The hard part was getting it off the ground but we hired well.” That was critical as Prost realised that managing people was not his forte. The partners also soon found out that “hammering people with KPIs [key performance indicators] every Friday” was not motivational for their small but growing team.

“We’re much more into the servant-leadership model now.” Part of what brought about this Pauline conversion was Back for Business, a development programme for people who have returned to Ireland to set up a business, which included mentorship.

Yala featured in Sunday Times!

Yala was featured in the Business section of yesterday’s Sunday Times! Check out the comment below from our founders, Barry Prost and Jamie Groom, who explain our history and current state.

As a new entrant to the recruitment industry in 2018, we had grown the business from two to 15 staff in 18 months, but were severely impacted by Covid. Our revenue dropped by 90 per cent in Q2 of 2020.

Our customers were primarily in the construction and life sciences sectors. Looking at new ways to connect during the pandemic, we hosted our first webinar on employee resilience, and produced a whitepaper to help employers to build and identify this quality in employees. We also conducted a survey and shared our findings in a report – “Recruitment during Covid and Trends for 2021” – in partnership with Enterprise Ireland and Trinity College.
