Aspire wins 3 stars and best ever score in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies
The company said:
"As a specialist recruitment business in the media and marcoms sector our greatest asset is our people, so naturally we work very hard to make Aspire a great place to work. For all the industry awards it is possible to enter none come close to the importance of the Best Companies Accreditation because the results are derived from a confidential survey of our own people.
"This is the 10th consecutive year we have undertaken the survey and we are humbled and delighted to know that our brilliant employees have given us our highest score ever achieving 3 star status defined as & lsquo;extraordinary’. Aspire therefore remains a Top 100 Company to Work For.
"As a specialist recruiter we change peoples lives and improve business performance but can achieve neither without ensuring we employ excellent people. So it is gratifying to see that improvements we make are appreciated by our people. For example we changed our reward system to increase the basic salary element of the pay package to what is undoubtedly one of the sectors most generous and rewarding with a guarantee to consultants of a minimum of 30% rising to 35% of everything they bill. When you add the best benefits package with 33 added extras including enhanced pension schemes, health insurance, healthshield, discount vouchers, free breakfast, sabbaticals, enhanced holidays, duvet days, flexible working, flexible dress code and many more, it is clear our people appreciate what we offer as much as we appreciate their value to our business.
"When you combine our exceptional packages with our pioneering career development programme it’s not surprising that our employees recognise personal growth as an area we focus so hard on. Our HR Director has an objective of working with our proactive management team developing everyone to a level that they get a pay rise and a promotion – it’s a clear focus. Three of our people have taken the opportunity to move abroad leading our operations in Singapore & Hong Kong, that’s career development with a twist.
"Aspire is expanding our services and are therefore in constant need of experienced recruitment talent, from any sector. We are recruiting in London, Singapore & Hong Kong and commence our next entry level trainee scheme in March. So if you want to join a company accredited by our employees as 3 star and extraordinary then now has never been a better time.
