Second TIARA 2019 Finalists Announced

TALiNT Partners today announces the second half of the shortlist for the TALiNT International Annual Recruitment Awards (TIARAs), which recognise excellence, innovation and growth in the UK recruitment sector. 

“The TIARAs exclusively recognise the largest and most dynamic UK recruitment firms,” said Alex Evans, Programme Director of the TIARAs and PointSix. “This year’s finalists and overall winners will be profiled in TALiNT International magazine to inspire the wider industry and show in-house leaders how agencies can deliver greater value.”

The judging panel has been updated to include in-house talent leaders from some of the world’s leading employers. 

Commenting on what she is looking for from this year’s finalists, Claire Holness, Ericsson’s Global Head of Talent Acquisition said: “Candidate experience is where employee experience begins. It has far reaching impacts on an organisation’s people engagement which in turn drives customer experience, innovation & digital transformation.”

Asif Sadiq, Head of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging at The Telegraph, also joins the judging panel this year. “D&I creates a strong sense of belonging for all,” he said. “I’m looking for exemplary recruitment companies that can demonstrate the commercial impact of equal opportunities and diverse cultures.”
