On the 1st February 2022, Seven Resourcing scooped three awards at the Investing in Talent Awards. Held at the stunning Brewery in central London, the major ceremony exists to celebrate recruitment agencies that go above and beyond for their staff, candidates and clients. After a record year in 2021 and huge investments in every area of employee satisfaction, the Investing In Talent Awards 2021 was a night to remember for everyone at Seven Resourcing.
With thousands of entries from agencies across the UK, Seven came out on top in three incredible categories, making us the most decorated company on the night! Here’s what we came home with:
🏆 Best Recruitment Company To Work For (50 to 99 employees).
You can’t say fairer than that! Seven Resourcing is officially the best medium-sized recruitment company to work for in the UK. The judges referenced our relentless efforts to provide first-class support, perks and career development for our staff, as well as putting candidates and clients first throughout the pandemic.
Judges’ comments: “Seven Resourcing demonstrated that serious steps were taken during the pandemic to ensure staff welfare and a caring and flexible approach to promoting a healthy work/life balance. This shines through in an almost perfect score in the employee survey. They have a very good recognition scheme and clear career path so consultants know what they need to do to earn promotion. A standout moment was a 24/7 shift pattern during the pandemic to support clients – truly outstanding work.”
🏆 Best Workplace Environment
With a constant buzz running through the office and a team that gels like a family, we’ve always been proud of the working environment here at Seven. Winning an award like this is a credit to the team and the culture they’ve built over many years. We’re committed to providing the most exciting, progressive, and inclusive careers in recruitment, and this award reflects exactly that.
Judges’ comments: “The judges were hugely impressed by the efforts made by the shortlisted companies. Investment into both office and remote working environments was impressive, as was the enthusiasm and innovation behind driving engagement activities during the pandemic. Our winner illustrated significant investment in the environment, including wellbeing and mental health support systems, technology, and equipment. An admirable list of engagement activities clearly drove high motivation, energy and buzz.”
🏆 Most Effective Pay and Benefits Strategy
The staff at Seven are among the brightest and hardest working in recruitment, so it’s absolutely crucial that we make them feel appreciated and motivated at all times. From industry-leading training and development to incredible perks and rewards, everyone at Seven has a chance to change their life forever.
Judges’ comments: “All nominees engaged in a creative approach to their pay and benefits offering. The winner showed a generous shareholding structure, rewarding team members with a shareholding after just a year. A GP scheme was introduced during the pandemic to get quick access to health professionals. The result of their structure was an increase in retention rate from 55% to 82%.”
Seven also received the ‘Highly Commended’ certificate in the COVID-19 Champion category, recognising Seven’s efforts to go above and beyond for its people throughout the pandemic.
These 3 awards add to Seven’s impressive collection from 2021, with the agency receiving 8 major awards in total, including SME of the Year at the Suffolk Business Awards and four wins at the Recruiter Awards.
When asked about our recent awards triumph, Seven Resourcing’s Director, Richard Cooke said “We’re absolutely thrilled to win another three major awards at one of the most prestigious ceremonies in our industry. We’re in competition with thousands of other agencies across the country, so it just shows what an amazing team we have here at Seven Resourcing. We’re proud of the way we treat our staff, the environment they work in and the unmatched culture that runs through the company. For that to be recognised on the big stage is always an honour and we can’t wait for more success in 2022.”
We would like to congratulate all the other shortlisted and winning agencies from the night, and we hope everyone continues to push for a better recruitment industry.
