With submissions judged by a panel of experts, drawn from the industry itself, these award are truly the industry’s awards – a point which has made success all the more sweeter for these and the other category winners and Highly Commendeds.
According to the award judges Finite was a standout winner in its category, demonstrating “a level of pride and intensity in the sector they work in. They have a clear focus on IT specialisation with technical verticals, outstanding industry awards and peer testimonials.” The judges were also highly impressed by Finite’s “inspirational CSR program, serving indigenous Australians.”
“We are thrilled and honoured to receive this international award,” says Finite’s managing director, Tracy Thomson. “With almost two decades of successful delivery, it is very gratifying that Global Recruiter has acknowledged our extensive expertise in recruiting top tech talent as best specialist recruiter across Asia Pac, against very formidable competition.”
Thomson continued: “With our successful expansion from Australia into New Zealand a few years ago, we are very aware that clients across the wider Asia Pacific region are always on the lookout for great tech talent. Winning this prestigious award is excellent recognition of the Finite team’s exceptional recruitment abilities within our specialist technology, digital and business transformation sector, connecting great people.”
“We are so humbled and excited to be named Best Newcomer at the 2017 Global Recruiter APAC Awards,” said Simon Meyer CEO and Founder, FutureYou. “To be recognised at an Asia Pacific level for the clear impact we’ve made on the recruitment industry since our launch 18 months ago, is beyond our expectations. Recognising great customer service and candidate experience, involvement with and understanding of the community they serve, and clear quantifiable billing success with a great approach to supporting internal talent; this award is for all those who took the leap of faith to join us on this incredible journey.”
Finally, winning the Best Innovation category, for what the judges described as "a comprehensive and well thought out use of multi media which enhances the search for talent and enables a more precise matching of talent to (job) opportunities,” the CEO and founder of VideoMyJob, David Macciocca, has this to say: "We are thrilled to receive the award for Best Innovation for the Asia Pacific region. We are honoured to be recognised by our industry for bringing a new product to market that is transforming the recruitment process with video job advertising.
"We truly believe that video job advertising will become the industry standard for representing a job." he continued. "Our team is proud to be leading the way with an app that puts the capability to create a branded video job ad in the hand of every recruiter."
According to the judges, VideoMyJob is "effective for employer branding and for more specific candidate attractions." The winners were announced at last week’s Global Recruiter Gala Awards Dinner held in Singapore at ParkRoyal on Pickering.
