Sigmar named best agency for CSR at NRF Awards in Ireland
Sigmar Recruitment has won the Best Corporate Social Responsibility Award at the National Recruitment Federation (NRF) Awards 2016.
Sigmar COO, Robert Mac Giolla Phádraig (pictured), said, “We are delighted to receive this recognition from our industry peers given the huge contribution the recruitment industry as a whole makes to society. At Sigmar, CSR is in our DNA and we are immensely proud of all the work our colleagues do locally, nationally and internationally in leading the employment agenda and supporting the creation of thousands of jobs each year.
"National Employment Week, one of our CSR initiatives, has gone from strength to strength over the past 7 years and has now become one of the largest talent conferences in Europe. The National Talent Summit has become a 'go to' event for global thought leadership on talent and is shaping the future narrative around the new world of work, which is in turn increasing demand for talent and creating employment.”
Held on Friday 2nd December, the the awards ceremony was held at the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin where 400 of Ireland’s leading recruitment industry figures were in attendance.
Also honoured on the night were Sigmar employees Claire Kelly, Eoghan McDermott and Heather Fahy, who were amongst the Top 6 Graduates in Ireland of the NRF Certificate in Recruitment Practice this year.
Mac Giolla Phádraig added, “We are really proud to see three of our consultants place in the top 6 NRF graduates of the year, a testament to their hard work and our collective drive in continuing to raise industry standards in Ireland.”
