National recruitment firm Encore Personnel has celebrated a record year of growth and expansion at its annual staff awards, rewarding its team members for professional excellence and outstanding achievements.
2019 saw a transformational phase for the business. The agency expanded its national network of offices, opening its tenth UK-based office in Peterborough whilst developing its engineering division by launching in Derby. The year also saw a new senior staff structure, with Greg Latham taking the role as Encore’s group chief executive officer and Pete Taylor appointed to managing director. The company also invested in a brand-new Interim Division, strengthening the firm’s senior management position in the recruitment market.
Recognising that its employees were key to its success, Encore’s staff awards, now in its 18th year, acknowledges the hard work of its employees and all branches. Welcoming over 200 staff from across the agency’s ten UK branches and its Managed Services division, the ceremony celebrated individual and team successes and thanked attendees for their dedication to growing the business over the past year.
The Energy Team based in Northampton took home Outstanding Team Contribution. Steve Dyne, Business Development Executive within the Coventry Industrial team was awarded Outstanding Sales Achievement while Hayley Knight, Company Admin and Payroll Manager based in Leicester won the Above and Beyond Award. Martin Knowles, Divisional Manager for Peterborough and Spalding Industrial teams, was awarded the Outstanding Leadership award, for his key role in the success of Encore’s Spalding branch over the last 12 months.
Pete Taylor, managing director at Encore Personnel said: “Our annual employee award ceremony is always an exciting event celebrating the abundance of talent we have at Encore. It’s been a strong year for the business and we are fortunate to have such a strong and dedicated team, who go above and beyond.”
