IC Resources' company culture recognised with People's Platform Award
As a company at the heart of the recruitment industry, we know that people matter. If businesses are to succeed, they need to have a company culture that champions both personal and career development.
It's something we stress to all our clients and candidates, but we also make sure to practise what we preach. That's why we're so proud to have been recognised for our efforts by one of the country's top industry bodies, something that's motivational and inspirational to the whole team.
What are the People's Platform Awards?
The People's Platform Awards are given to companies that put their employees first. They go to businesses that have created the most rewarding and engaging environments to let their employees thrive and grow, both professionally and personally.
It's not just a badge of honour either. It's intended to encourage all companies to prioritise building environments where people feel valued, safe, engaged and excited about their work. Those that receive the accolade are the type of businesses where employees trust their employer and are proud to recommend to others without hesitation.
The awards use a rigorous process that surveys the opinions of over 60,000 people and looks at over 10,000 companies - so the winners really are the cream of the crop.
Why IC Resources was recognised
The award reflects the key values that IC Resources have held close to our hearts throughout our history. Ever since we started the company, back in 1999, with a mission to be an integral member of the technology community, we've looked to create a work environment where the personal and professional enjoy a symbiotic relationship that allows both to thrive, whether employees are in the office or at home.
We're now a 70-strong team of expert recruiters with specialisms in a variety of sectors within the tech industry. The greatest testament to our employees’ engagement are the personal testimonials we receive from candidates and clients. We believe our reviews are unprecedented (in number and positivity) within the world of recruitment.
How we built a thriving company culture
Our social committee organises sports and social events, team lunches, lunch clubs and Friday lunches in the local pub all bring our team closer together. We've taken our employees to Amsterdam, Berlin, Marbella and as far afield as Las Vegas for team building, and we believe these things play a big part in building a more inspired and engaged mindset.
If we are to sum up how we want our employees to feel in three words, they would be: empowered, inspired and proud.
Our philosophy is there's no one-size-fits-all answer to what makes a great company culture and we celebrate the differences across our workforce. But, if you work with integrity, intelligence, innovation, inspiration and intensity on a daily basis, you're exactly the kind of person we are looking for.
