Last night we attended the prestigious Asia Recruitment Awards at Hotel Icon here in Hong Kong and proudly took home two gold awards for The Best Candidate Experience and the highly coveted The Best Recruitment Team!
The event was attended by around 200 HR professionals and recruiters all dressed up to the nines to celebrate those firm who demonstrate best practice and innovation in recruitment and talent acquisition in Asia. Over a delicious four-course dinner at Hotel Icon in Tsim Sha Tsui, winners of the 30 categories, for both in-house recruitment teams and recruitment agencies, were announced and commended, and the fortunate firms walked away with one (or in some cases many) of the coveted ‘R’ trophies.
In our categories (Best Recruitment Team and Best Candidate Experience – Agency), we were up against some of the most prestigious names in the industry, so nerves were admittedly running high as we waited in anticipation for the winners to be announced. We were thrilled to be selected as the gold winners, particularly given the competition.
Our Recruitment team had an incredible year in 2016 and is continuing on the same streak this year. We targeted the team to reduce client time to hire by over 30% and deliver double digit revenue growth whilst enhancing the overall candidate experience which they achieved through utilization of a combination of Links Digital Interviews and The Career Tree as well as exceptional service levels to clients and candidates. The team has gone from strength to strength and definitely deserved to be rewarded for their success.
