Finalists In The REC Awards
18th October 2022
We've been shortlisted in the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) awards. The voice of the recruitment industry in the UK, these are the most prestigious awards for the sector, showcasing outstanding achievements from in-house recruiters and agencies to start-ups and multinationals.
TMM Recruitment Chief Executive, Amanda McCulloch explains what it means for the team, “We’re delighted to be a finalist in the Best Company to Work For category (up to 50 employees). It celebrates companies that place employees at the heart of their business strategy and champions people development, employee engagement, and recognition.
“We want to enable a working life where our employees can be the best they can be and participate in awards to evaluate our initiatives and programmes. After a pretty turbulent few years, we felt it was the right time to benchmark ourselves against peers and competitors.
“Receiving an award showcases the winner as a leading figure within their industry, differentiating them from competitors and providing a prestigious endorsement of high standards and best practices. This is reassuring for customers and gives our team a real boost, contributing to a strong sense of pride in their place of work.
“As a people business, it validates the culture we strive to cultivate; the opportunities we provide through training and leadership development; our reward practices, and how we monitor employee satisfaction.
“Being shortlisted is particularly pleasing because our headcount has grown by 30% in the last year and our submission incorporated the experiences of new employees working through our bespoke training programme, and more senior recruiters with autonomy to shape their own specialist areas and set the direction for growth.
“The positive message the REC awards send out about excellence in the recruitment industry is a great thing to celebrate.”
