People Source is an IT recruitment agency that provides contract and permanent staff for small to medium sized companies and blue chip businesses across the UK and Europe. In January 2015 the company was listed as the fastest growing IT recruitment company on the Recruiter Fast 50 list with revenue growing from £10m to £20m in the year.
Described by the Telegraph as being the & lsquo;lifeblood of the UK economy’, those highlighted on the list are leading the way in the SME community. The technology recruitment agency have demonstrated that taking a more wholesome approach to recruitment leads to better business relationships, stronger growth and a reputation for being one of the best places to work in the industry. They recently moved into larger premises primarily to facilitate further expansion with plans to double in size over the next 4 years. With half of the office space dedicated to break out areas and “non-work” space, the company is akin to an early Google and it is clear from their recent awards - including the National Business Awards Future Champion - that People Source are breaking the stereotypical recruitment mould and doing things differently.
Jason Baker, chairman, said, “It is an honour to be identified as one of the London Stock Exchange 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain - a testament to how our unique culture influences the growth of the business. People Source is a company defined and differentiated by its people centric ethos, which puts us on the map as an agency that stands out from the crowd. This recognition demonstrates that taking a wholesome approach to recruitment and balancing it with a great work culture makes for a highly successful business”
Xavier Rolet, chief executive, London Stock Exchange Group said, “This report is a significant part of London Stock Exchange’s broader campaign to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and to create an entrepreneurship revolution. I’m delighted that a strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies has been created to support these inspiring businesses.”
