Understanding Recruitment Awards Update!
10 Mar 2016
What an amazing couple of weeks of recognition it has been for Understanding Recruitment! We recently found out that the company has been nominated for ‘Best Customer Service’ at the FSB Hertfordshire Business Awards. This is an award that the committee ‘believe there is no better endorsement’ for a business as the results come down to a public vote.
This was then followed by the outstanding results announced on Wednesday 24th February at the Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) Executive Forum in Phoenix, Arizona. The news that we had won Best Staffing Firms to Work For with 10 to 50 employees is testament to the hard work Understanding Recruitment put into valuing their employees. The award has gained the attention of top recruitment agencies since its introduction in 2011. Split into 2 categories, one for firms with 10 to 50 employees and the other category for 51 employees plus, staff were asked to take part in a 40 question survey. The survey measured ‘10 key engaging categories focusing on items including teamwork, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits’.
After receiving the award Chris Jackson said, ‘What a monumental achievement this is for us as a team. I have always been filled with confidence by every individual that works here and this award just shows why!’ The next stage for Understanding Recruitment is to capitalise on this achievement and keep attracting top talent. Chris also said, ‘We will only grow as fast as the quality of the talent we take on board. The culture we have at Understanding Recruitment is built by the team working here and they are what makes the company such an attractive place to work.’
The results that came back classed our staff as engaged with intent to stay, as ‘advocates’ and as ‘highly favorable.’ Anonymous comments received showed the support from the staff for Understanding, as the ‘career opportunity they offer is a great path to climbing the ladder with no restrictions to the speed of growth… We also have the best newcomer of 2014 who joined as an apprentice at 17.’
There are clearly exciting times ahead at Understanding Recruitment and we are constantly striving to set the high standards expected within the industry.
