It’s the moment that all time-travel-loving Brits have been waiting for… Doctor Who Day!

This weekend, David Tennant returns to our screen as The Doctor for the 60th anniversary of the show.

Fans are eagerly waiting for Saturday evening to roll around to witness this historic event.

Doctor Who is a staple of British culture – it’s more than just a TV show to many people.

It influences how they live their lives… but have you thought about how it can impact your business?

Throughout its history, Doctor Who has presented several lessons all businesses can learn from.

So, whilst we wait for the epic return of David’s Doctor, let’s take a look at how your business can regenerate, just like The Doctor does.

Exterminate Your Sales Demons

One of the most iconic phrases in all the Whoniverse, there’s a way you can exterminate your stumbling blocks like the Daleks exterminate their enemies.

We’ve been paying close attention to sales performance and trends in 2023, and we’ve earmarked some of the latest ideas that have impacted global sales this year. 

We’ve taken some notable stumbling blocks and developed a solution to help all businesses exterminate all worries this Doctor Who Day.

Here are just a few trends that, according to Hubspot, will shape your salesforce in 2024.

  • AI’s role in sales will step up.
  • Quality > Quantity.
  • More touchpoints = more closed deals.

Hopefully, these tips will help you take a big step forward in the next 12 months.

Just don’t use your extermination powers for bad (like Daleks would…)

Upgrade Your Team With Bespoke Recruitment

As the Cybermen say, “You Will Be Upgraded”.

There’s never been a better time to upgrade, as 2024 will be the year for change in your team.

Recently, the job market has predominantly been candidate-led, with employers fighting over leading talent.

Considering that top candidates are only available for ten days before being hired, the job market has been tense for many hiring managers over the past few years.

However, there are signs of change ahead.

2024 signals a shift towards an employer-driven market, where, as the recruiter, you’ll have applicants queueing up to work for your business.

This creates the perfect opportunity for you to upgrade your team with quality hires who’ll drive innovation and growth.

Be more like the Cybermen – but don’t replace your human employees with robots (that’s a step too far!)

Save Time (And Space) With Volume Hiring

As a time-traveller, Doctor Who can be in any and every place at once.

One minute he’s saving people from the fires of Pompei, next he’s preventing alien attacks far into the future.

He knows how to efficiently complete tasks – and we all know how amazing that feeling is.

Unfortunately, we can’t be in multiple places at once.

We can’t phone a prospect, sign terms and sit in a meeting simultaneously, which is why you need to make more hires.

Sounds great – but making those hires can be costly and timely… so invest in a Volume Hiring programme. 

65% of businesses have high-volume recruiting requirements – could you be one of them?

If so, when you outsource your mass hiring needs to AvA-V, we’ll gather dozens of first-class hires into a group interview where you can then watch your future recruits in action.

These new hires will free up your time – allowing you to focus on critical tasks.

You’ll soon be saving the day like The Doctor.

Use Company Culture To Create A Solid U.N.I.T

“According to the records, you’re not one for travelling alone.”

If there’s one thing Doctor Who teaches us, teamwork and partnership are crucial to every task you take on.

The Doctor, famously, never travels alone. There’s always a companion by his side to help ground him and give him the friendship he so dearly needs.

The TARDIS culture is fun, adventurous and full of charm, which is one of the many reasons The Doctor’s companies are drawn to travelling with him.

Culture, atmosphere and relationships are also vital in your business.

72% of companies report that culture helps successful changes happen.

Here are just some of the ways that a strong company culture drives success.

  • It motivates employees.
  • Attracts and retains top talent.
  • Enhances your brand reputation.

Your culture and brand are vital for attracting the best prospects and applicants to your business.
