Pertemps has been included in the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to work for list for the last 16 years straight, a feat only achieved by two other companies.
With 60 years in the business, the independent, family-run recruitment specialist know a thing or two about creating great places to work.
Chair Carmen Watson said: “It was heartening to see that in the latest CBI/ Pertemps annual Employment Trends Survey – Investing in People – 57 per cent of companies were looking to grow their workforce in 2022. However, that is set against the well-reported difficulties finding the right candidates and a skills shortage.“
“The people are there but in the current climate, they can afford to be picky.“
“It is essential that as an employer we offer the right development and career progression opportunities, a nice environment to work in and the potential for more flexible working arrangements.”
“We must also ensure there is the support for wellbeing, which is so important, and a diverse and inclusive culture. With these elements, you start to build up a picture of what it is like to work for you. “
“For colleagues, it is essential to ensure there is clear communication about what the business is doing and where it is going. People should feel included and everyone should have a voice in helping the business move forward. “
“Recruitment specialists like ourselves are increasingly working with clients on their longer-term attraction strategies: there is less ad hoc picking up the phone when a business needs someone and more looking at how the talent pipeline can be secured going forward. A big part of that is ensuring that you have everything in place as a business to make it an attractive place to work over others out there.”
