Morson Group are proud to be nominated in three separate categories at this year’s REC IRP Awards.
The Institute of Recruitment Professionals Awards are one of the industry’s standout events with the categories representing the highest accolade an individual or company can receive in the recruitment industry. Each category celebrates professional excellence, best practice and inspirational work.
Morson has been nominated for Best Back-Office Support Team, Best Corporate & Social Responsibility Practitioners and an individual accolade for resourcer Shannie Cole being nominated for Recruitment Apprentice of the Year.
The nomination for corporate and social responsibility comes just weeks after Morson hosted its masquerade ball, a fundraising celebration that marked the tenth anniversary of the charity committee which raised a six-figure sum for two nominated charities. This follows almost a year of activities, with several events including dress-down days and bike rides completed by employees.
The last 12 months also saw the launch of MorFit, a new employee initiative aimed at enhancing existing provisions concerning health and wellbeing. With several employees acting as champions of this, Morson hosted the first Health & Wellbeing Day in September with exhibitors, talks and exercise classes in head office.
The nomination for back-office support team comes for the IS services team. At the core of all of Morson’s business activities, they look after candidate pay and performance statistics providing the client invaluable information on the company’s recruitment performance. They are the company’s master problem solvers, empowering each employee with the right information at the right time, and were responsible for the design and implementation of the companywide intranet platform ROAR.
Shannie Cole’s hard work and determination over the last 12 months has seen her take resourcing responsibility for technical roles within the permanent aerospace division. A capable resourcer, her willingness to learn and a meticulous attention to detail has seen her develop professionally as well as personally.
Morson CEO Ged Mason said: “We’re always proud to be nominated for awards, and to be shortlisted for three is a great bonus. Our charitability, a value installed in us by my father, is very important to us and the work done by the committee has been fantastic for the last ten years, highlighted at our charity ball this year.”
“It’s also important to celebrate the roles that are less public-facing, such as those performed by Stinus and the IS services team who are a critical part of the Morson operation.”
“Of course, it’s particularly special to see a young recruiter being nominated for excellent individual work. Well done to Shannie.”
