2017: The year of the supplier


This year, Recruitment International is celebrating ten years of recognising the best of the best in recruitment, but in 2017 they’re not the only ones we want to shout about. For the first time, we will also be recognising leading industry suppliers at our RI Recruitment Industry Supplier Awards.


Behind every successful recruitment company stands a market leading supplier. These specialists are integral to the growth and success that recruiters enjoy, which is why our Supplier Awards will validate who the premium suppliers are across a number of categories. 


The awards will be completely independent and a true detection of standards, as it will be the recruitment agencies themselves who are the judges. They will answer questions online and this will determine the winners. Each supplier will receive a score and the highest scoring company in each category will win a coveted RI trophy. For the highest scoring company across all categories there will be the ultimate achievement of Recruitment Industry Supplier of the Year 2017.


How it works:


When a supplier books the categories they want to enter, they will be provided with a link (these will not be provided until the week commencing 14th November). They will then share this link with their recruitment agency clients, who will answer five key questions about the supplier’s service. This information will be collated and evaluated to reveal the winners.


It doesn’t matter how big or small the supplier is as we will take an average score, giving everyone a level playing field.


In order to be considered for the final rankings a supplier must get as many as replies as they can  in each award category they enter. Votes can come from more than one person at a company, but they must use a company, not personal, email. ​


Once the voting has closed and the data has been collected there will also be an opportunity for each supplier to purchase the collated information in relation to their entries.  This will give an invaluable insight into how customers really rate their products and services.


TIMELINE:

Monday 14th November – All suppliers will be provided with a link to their questionnaire

Friday 27th January - Online questionnaire is closed

Thursday 16th February (tbc) – Awards lunch - WINNERS ANNOUNCED!


CATEGORIES:

Best Accountancy Firm
Best Business Support Service
Best Banking & Financial  
Best Contractor Services
Best Insurance Provider 
Best Recruitment CRM
Best Technology Solution
Best Candidate Attraction
Best Legal Service for Recruitment
Best Payroll Provider
Best Recruitment Training Provider
Best Marketing & PR
Best Overall for Customer Service


All organisations who enter will also be entered into the top accolade of Overall Provider of the Year.

To enter the Recruitment Industry Supplier Awards is only £275 + VAT.

Once the awards are concluded there is an opportunity to purchase your data for just £495 + VAT.


FAQs for suppliers:

Why should I enter?
The process for winning or being listed in the Top 5 is independent and voted for by recruiters. Many organisations will go to external sources to evaluate their offering. This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate what a great job partners to the industry do as well as truly evaluating the service you are offering to your clients.


Do I have to purchase my data after the event? 
No, this is an additional option and is entirely up to you.


If I do purchase my data, is it £495+ VAT for everything? 
The price is £495+ VAT per category – this is the total price and the data will be provided in an excel spreadsheet to enable you to manipulate the data.


When do I have to let you know if I want my data? 
You can let us know at any time leading up to or even after the event. 


Can I enter more than one category? 
You can enter as many categories as you wish. You will pay £285 + VAT per category you would like to enter – there are no discounts for entering multiple categories.


What if I don’t get as many votes as the larger organisations in my field? 
As we take an average score, it doesn’t matter. Providing you get at least 25 replies in each Award category you are entering we will be able to accurately rank you.


Do I have to attend the lunch? 
There is no obligation to attend the presentation lunch. It would be great to see as many entrants as possible. As no winners will be announced until the day I am sure you would want to be present if you did win!


Who can I bring to the lunch?  
It is up to you; once you purchase your ticket/s or a table you can bring along colleagues or clients.


Do I get any free tickets to the lunch? 
There are no complimentary tickets to the lunch. All organisations must purchase their tickets individually.


How much are the tickets to the lunch? 
This is still to be confirmed. As soon as this information is available all organisations will receive full instructions to book. We will ensure the tickets are as affordable as possible, because we would like as many suppliers as possible to attend.


Who will be at the lunch? 
All organisations can bring along any internal staff, existing or potential clients, business partners from outside the industry and anyone they wish to be working with.


Will I get a logo if I win? 
If you are listed in the Top 5 for each category you will receive a logo for your marketing materials. This will be available after the event. For the organisations winning each award you will receive a special winners’ logo.


What sort of marketing will organisations get after the event? 
Recruitment International will do a double page spread featuring all our winners, this is a great opportunity to gain some additional exposure.


What sort of marketing will organisations get prior to the event? 
There will be marketing prior to the event in order to ensure agencies are entering votes for their suppliers. This marketing will be done through the magazine, news emails and on all our social media channels. We encourage all suppliers to engage with us through all these mediums.
