Encore achieves REC audited status for seventh time
Encore Personnel has attained audited status with the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) for a seventh time.
Encore was assessed against the requirements of the Employment Agencies Act, the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 and the REC’s Code of Professional Practice.
This initiative run by the REC provides successful recruiters with an accreditation which confirms the agency is conducting its business ethically, in accordance with the legal requirements and with the REC Code.
Encore Personnel has held the 2-year accreditation since 2004, being awarded it seven times running.
Compliance manager at Encore, Phil Tilt (pictured), said, “We’re thrilled to have been awarded this industry gold standard for the fourteenth year running, as it is a real testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams to provide the very best service to both our customers and candidates across a very broad cross section of sectors. It shows we go above and beyond what is expected in order to demonstrate excellent compliance procedures.
“REC Audited Status sets us apart as ethically-aware, forward thinking and innovative recruitment experts with a thoroughly robust and progressive approach to best practice, staff training, candidate well being and customer service. Well done to every team member at Encore who has worked hard to help us meet this prestigious benchmark for another year running.”
REC chief executive, Kevin Green, added, “Congratulations to Encore Personnel for achieving REC Audited status. In doing so they join an elite group of recruitment agencies across the UK that have achieved this high standard.
“This accreditation recognises that we have rigorously audited Encore Personnel and found that it is performing to the highest professional standards and represents best practice in our sector.”
