I hope you had a great Christmas break and some fantastic (legal?!) work parties?
At Prism, we have made a couple of January signings (so we’re having a much better transfer window than Arsenal!!). A big welcome to Siveshen and Eman who have joined the business this month. It’s exciting times as the Prism team continues to grow.
It’s another new year and a year of new starts. We’re a month in, so how’s everyone’s new year’s resolutions going? I see a lot of people are partaking in Dry Jan this year, as am I. I have managed to be successful, but we still have half a Monday left to go!
Continuing with the healthy start to the year, we were pleased to have Michelle Flynn, health coach extraordinaire, join us at Prism to focus on ‘mindset’ and establishing a positive story. An interesting takeaway was how detrimental distractions can be to us in this day and age. A great podcast that deals with this issue in one of its episodes is the Diary of a CEO by Steven Bartlett – How to Fix your Focus & Stop Procrastinating: Johann Hari. Steven Bartlett is also a recent addition to the Dragon’s Den. He is certainly someone who seems to have his head screwed on, with a lot of great advice and success in the business world.
Talking of TV, thank goodness the BBC’s ‘The Apprentice’ is back on our screens, are you a fan? I am a sucker for the show and have been hooked although I can’t say I have identified a favourite yet.
Prism have been back working in the office for a long time now, but with the end of Plan B restrictions, we have really seen London getting busier than we have ever seen it over the last two weeks. It’s great to see the city have a buzz about it again and hopefully we will see a continued return to normality.
We have included our Q1 2022 DevOps Salary Benchmark report in this month’s newsletter (keep scrolling to view that). So, feel free to peruse that and map the current DevOps market, as it is always changing!
I hope everyone has had a fantastic start to 2022, it feels like this is going to be a good year! As ever, feel free to reach out regarding anything talent acquisition or DevOps related, it would be great to hear from you. Book a call with me here

In the past, serious PC gaming was solely under the desktop computer domain. But when the pandemic hit, bringing with it the corresponding disruption to the global supply chain, chip shortages, and enforced work from home, the computer gaming industry experienced a shift in demand.
Microsoft is paying the enormous sum of nearly $70 billion for Activision Blizzard, the maker of Candy Crush and Call of Duty, a deal that would immediately make it a larger video-game company than Nintendo while raising questions about the deal’s possible anti-competitive effects.
US technology giant Apple has become the first company to hit a stock market valuation of $3tn (£2.2tn). The firm's share price has risen by around 5,800% since co-founder and former chief executive Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone in 2007.
