Morson 'highly commended' in Global Recruiter Industry Awards.
The tenth annual awards were presented at a ceremony in June
Morson were awarded ‘highly commended’ in the annual Global Recruiter Awards 2019 in the category of Best Large Recruitment Business of The Year.
Celebrating their tenth anniversary in 2019, the Global Recruiter Industry awards have an unprecedented reputation in the industry for recognising the best and the brightest.
Our submission highlighted client diversification to allow us to maintain growth despite budget cuts in our core sectors of nuclear, defence and aerospace and the challenges posed by Brexit. This generated several large client wins in construction, professional services and IT.
The award judges commented:
“Morson is a very powerful niche recruiter with amazing levels of industry impact and initiatives designed to increase choice and standards of candidates and to change the industry they serve for the better.”
Our submission also highlighted our cost saving work with Manchester Airport Group, with whom we recently signed a three-year contract extension. Significantly, the submission highlighted how we use our size, position and strength to challenge status quos, with ED&I embedded into our DNA with a programme that seeks to attract recruits from underrepresented groups into the industries that we work in that suffer from the greatest levels of inequality. Working with groups like the Girls' Network to promote and develop female interest in engineering and apprenticeships a well as appointing our first ever diversity ambassador in Northern Power Women CEO Simone Roche has been integral to this.
Morson celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2019 and a series of celebratory events have been taking place to mark this milestone. The centrepiece will be a party for all employees in July, bringing together past and present employees of the business to celebrate our success together.
