James Kenealey award
Morson took home the Parasol Temporary Recruitment Company of the Year award at the TALiNT International Annual Recruitment Awards 2020.
The TIARAs recognise excellence in the top 6% of UK recruitment companies with revenues above £5m. On 21st October 2020, senior leaders from the UK’s top recruiters celebrated innovation and growth at the awards ceremony, which took place online due to ongoing concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
Judges praised Morson for a significant investment and ongoing commitment to D&I and equality, both internally and externally, with great examples of collaborative innovation to offer greater value to clients and candidates. Morson was also commended for its support of contractors, particularly its initiatives around mental wellbeing and early detection of COVID-19.
Morson’s submission highlighted:
“Recruitment will always sit at our core, but a business of our size must go beyond core talent services; we deliver a true people-centric approach to give customers the confidence that we’re the right choice of talent partner.
We’ve constructed a suite of value-added services based on customer feedback as to the ways we can make their lives easier, and continually reinvest profits back into our operations to drive innovation. One such platform, Vencuro, our business intelligence tool, has increased direct candidate application by 95%.
“Many of our value-added services have been borne out of quarterly reviews with clients, where innovation is a concrete agenda item. Together, we recognise gaps in the market and roll out innovations we can supply to clients, rather than them having to partner with third-party suppliers.
For example, our business intelligence tool, Vencuro, was developed after clients asked for a platform to standardise and simplify recruitment by delivering constant automation of tasks, to provide real-time data.
We utilised third-party software to make our website more inclusive for the 5th of people in the UK who have a disability and the one-in-ten who don’t speak English as their first language – a challenge during online job hunts. Since integrating Recite Me to the Morson website, 73% of visitors have utilised the playback feature for increased accessibility, and 5% have used the translation function, becoming integral to us attracting a more diverse workforce.
In March 2020, we armed 3,000 remote workers in UK industry with early detection technology to spot the first signs of the coronavirus before attending site. The Fit For Work app was already in development pre-COVID for safety-critical sites but the technology was quickly adapted to be COVID specific.”
