Professional services recruitment specialist Sellick Partnership has added two prestigious accolades to their growing list of awards and accreditations. Earlier this month the award-winning firm was awarded Investors in People Gold – improving on their previous silver accreditation – and at a glittering awards ceremony in London on Wednesday 25 April 2018 they were recognised as one of the Best Workplaces™ in the UK by Great Place to Work® for the third time.
Both of these awards recognise the commitment Sellick Partnership has to their staff and recognise the importance of nurturing talent and maintaining a motivated and positive working environment.
Managing Director, Jo Sellick commented on the recent success saying: “We are thrilled to be awarded Investors in People Gold and be officially recognised as a Great Place to Work® for the third time. These awards are a testament to the vision I had when starting the business. I wanted to create a unique and open culture that gives each and every individual the opportunity to develop and succeed, and I firmly believe that is what we have built.
These awards not only recognise the investment we put into our people but also the investment our people put into the company at every level. I would like to thank each of our employees for the commitment they show in ensuring Sellick Partnership remains a successful and progressive company.”
This year Sellick Partnership improved their Great Place to Work® ranking by 26 places, coming in at number 13 in the Medium category. The business was commended for their impressive leadership style and the attractive benefits that are on offer to all staff.
