We’re the best company to work for!
In my year-long tenure as CEO of Rethink Group – and in the 11 years I spent as a director prior – I’ve made it my mission to create a brilliant working environment for my colleagues.
It’s a movement that everyone here’s embraced – and collectively, across our global offices and businesses, we’ve created an awesome culture in which people are encouraged to be the best version of themselves.
So, I’m absolutely thrilled that last night we received a ringing endorsement for our efforts, winning the IRP’s Best Company to Work For at the annual IRP Awards – something the awards’ chief executive cites as celebrating the “brightest recruitment professionals and most laudable companies in the UK”.
It’s the third consecutive year we’ve won an IRP Award; last year our inspirational colleague Andy Cox was crowned the Consultant of the year, whilst in 2015 we were confirmed as the IRP’s Advocate Company of the Year.
This time, we beat off stiff competition from across the recruitment and talent spectrum, with judges recognising how far we’ve gone in implementing policies which invest heavily in staff development; policies which encourage and reward people for going off to do charitable endeavours and allow people to excel as parents and in their career. Our £5000 package for working mums and dads – including those who’ve adopted – is a successful example.
Then there’s internal career path programmes which encourage and reward everyone who wants to climb a ladder. We arm our colleagues with everything they need to reach the level they want to get to.
This award isn’t the end of those efforts; in 2018 we’ll be implementing even more great programmes which will make Rethink Group an even better place to work.
