Gibbs S3 declared a National Champion in The European Business Awards
The accolade is the latest to head the Surrey-based company's way. The company has become the only corporate-level business to be officially certified as an EMB (Ethnic Minority Controlled Business) by MSDUK, and its CEO and founder Farida Gibbs has just been named as one of most of influential women working in the staffing industry across the world, being named in The Global Power 100 – Women in Staffing list compiled by Staffing Industry Analysis (SIA).
The company is also celebrating record growth in its 10th year of business with UK revenue growing 29 per cent to reach £32.24m, and is on track to hit £46m this year, demonstrating impressive growth of 42 per cent. It has seen global revenue grow to £180m and its US operations were recently ranked as the 17th largest staffing firm in the country by industry analysts SIA.
The European Business Awards celebrate the most dynamic and exciting businesses across the continent who actively demonstrate a set of principles – success, innovation, ethics and international mind-set.
Farida Gibbs, CEO of Gibbs S3, commented, “This award highlights the fantastic work the Gibbs S3 team has been doing and we are extremely proud to be announced UK champion. We pride ourselves on delivering high-class solutions and providing the very best staff to the leading companies we service across the globe.
“We are delighted that the award recognises our dynamic approach to staffing and consultancy.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, said, “Congratulations to Gibbs S3 and all the companies that have been selected to represent their country as National Champions, they play an important part in creating a stronger business community.”
The European Business Awards engaged with over 32,000 business from 33 European countries this year and, as National Champions, Gibbs S3 will go through to the second phase of the competition. The next round requires the National Champions to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The judges will view all of the National Champions’ videos, and award the best of this group the coveted & lsquo;Ruban d’Honneur’ status. Ruban d’Honneur recipients will then go on to be part of the grand final in 2016.
