PULSE, a leading provider of healthcare staffing solutions, has been announced as Staffing Agency of the Year at this years Health Investor Awards. PULSE competed against stiff competition from four other well-known staffing agencies all top of a sector that is bucking the downturn trend.
PULSE is now the fastest growing company placing highly-skilled health and social care professionals in temporary and permanent jobs, world-wide.
Health Investor Award judges said:
PULSE has expanded astonishingly quickly in 2008 to become one of the biggest players in the market. It is improving quality in a very testing market where there is strong competition from a public sector alternative, offering broader options to Trusts which are seeking more flexibility in their workforce.
Commenting on the win, CEO of Pulse, Richard MacMillan says: We are delighted to have won this award. We believe a large reason for such a successful year is down to the services that we offer above and beyond the average staffing agency across a diverse range of health and social care clients. In 2008, we grew our international business and launched our new brand PULSEBank, delivering safe, value for money flexible staffing arrangements to NHS Trusts. We are also investing in our web presence pulsejobs.com now attracts over 80,000 visitors every month and provides new and efficient web services to clients.
There is a growing recognition that flexible staff offer a cost effective way of optimising the workforce and increased demand for staff is being driven by government initiatives resulting from the EU Working Time Regulations and the worldwide shortage of skilled healthcare staff making the long term prospects of PULSE extremely strong.
The Health Investor Awards promote excellence and recognise innovation in the healthcare sector.
