Forbes Names Aspire One Of Ten Best Sports Organizations to Work For
March 11, 2015
Forbes has named The Aspire Group as one of the “The Top 10 Best Organizations To Work For In Sports” based on employee satisfaction, work-life balance and opportunity for career growth.
Dozens of executives and individuals at all levels of sports, from entry-level sales staff to team presidents, as well as top executive recruiters and university leaders who’ve trained countless generations of top industry professionals, were interviewed to determine who would made the list. The Aspire Group, along with other notable organizations such as the National Football League, the Arizona Diamondbacks, Cleveland Cavaliers and The Ohio State University Athletic Department, was included in this list based on their dedication to employee development and ongoing success in the sports & entertainment industry.
The Aspire Group follows the Disney Loyalty Profit Chain philosophy of putting leadership excellence first which in return maximizes employee satisfaction, which then leads to the highest level of customer satisfaction, customer loyalty and finally profitability/ sustainability. This philosophy has contributed to Aspire offering employees the highest quality ticket marketing, sales and service training, developing “Raise Your Game” a unique executive development program which is so advanced that it is in the process of approval for graduate school credit by major state universities in the USA and England, and has resulted in leaders and staff retention numbers that far exceed sport sales and service industry standards.
“With 14 new client partners already secured in 2015, the industry is already aware of just how good and productive the Aspire staff are. We are immensely proud of this recognition from Forbes and grateful for Aspire’s inclusion within this most prestigious group. This award will no doubt further increase the size and quality of our recruiting pool as the broader world of sport more widely recognizes what our staff already knows, Aspire is a superb place to launch and further develop one’s personal brand and achieve the fullest career potential” stated Dr. Bernie Mullin, Chairman & CEO of The Aspire Group.
