In an employment culture where retaining top talent is just as important as attracting it in the first place, London Residential is pleased to fill its offices with enthusiastic staff who show a real sense of loyalty to our growing North West London estate agency business.

Therefore we are thrilled to be celebrating the one-year work anniversary of James Baines. It's been a whole 12 months since he joined London Residential as a Sales Negotiator at our Kentish Town office, and he's made an instant impact on both clients and his colleagues.

Although you may think a single year within a company is no feat, today's employment sector is heavily weighted with 'Millennials' - who are known to be 'flighty' when it comes to career and workplace commitment. In fact, recent figures suggest that 71% of Millennials think they will be gone from their current role by 2020, while 44% think they’ll be gone in just two years.

The statistics were reported in an article on attracting and engaging with Millennials, recently published by the Evening Standard . Dimple Agarwal, a partner at global consultancy firm Deloitte, was quoted on the theme that staying with a company for life is a dying trend.

We're proud to celebrate work anniversaries at London Residential. We think the loyalty is, in part, a result of the workplace culture we have created. Retaining staff is also a great perk for our clients, who can return to us and deal with the same professional yet friendly people time and time again.
