Astute's team had an unforgettable day yesterday (8th March) when we were awarded the prestigious title of Best Staffing Firm to Work For in the UK 2023 at the annual Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) awards ceremony in Miami. Winning the Grand Prize was a remarkable accomplishment, and everyone at Astute is thrilled and proud to have received such an honour.
SIA is a global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions. It has been providing independent research, data, and advisory services to staffing companies and their clients for over 30 years. Each year, the SIA hosts its Best Staffing Firms to Work For awards programme, which recognises the best employers in the industry. The programme is based on anonymous surveys completed by employees of the participating staffing firms, and the winners are selected based on their scores in different categories such as teamwork, employee engagement, trust, and work-life balance.
Astute was recognised as a people-focused business that prioritises trust, respect, and encouragement. According to Terry Buckel, the Founder and CEO of Astute Technical Recruitment, the award is a testament to the company's dedication to creating a positive work environment for its employees. "This is an amazing award and one that means a lot to me, personally, as it recognises the efforts that have been made to create the best company to work for," he said. "I've been focused on improving the work/life balance for a number of years, especially after lockdown, and was determined to get there. But this journey is not over as we continue to challenge ourselves to make it even better! People are at the centre of our values, and that starts with looking after our own staff."
