Meridian Bags Best Recruitment Campaign 2019 Award

Irp Awards Recruitment Campaign   Meridian Business Support

Meridian is delighted to win Recruitment Campaign of the Year at The IRP Industry Awards 2019. We were recognised for a recruitment campaign we successfully executed for one of our Onsite clients, a leading meal kit provider. The campaign saw us supply up to 300 production staff daily, within a very tight labour market where competition for labour was very high and unemployment is 0.5%! 

Judges were impressed by Meridian’s partnership approach which saw them team up with local job centres to promote wellbeing initiatives, this along with the company’s disability confident status, encouraged some candidates who may not have felt confident to apply or enter the workforce, to engage. This resulted in Meridian attracting a new pool of candidates and helped position the client as an “employer of choice” locally.
The client commented:
“We have been partnering with Meridian for two years. Key to our successful Peak Delivery is the agency’s ability to resource temporary staff in a very tight local labour market. Competition for labour is very high in the local area and unemployment is 0.5% - consequently, we rely on Meridian to promote our business as the “assignment of choice” locally and provide upwards of 300 production staff per day.” 

The IRP Awards, held at The Royal Lancaster Hotel, celebrates the best of the best in the recruitment industry. 

Derek Skelton, CEO at Meridian Business Support, said: “I am delighted that our dedicated Onsite team has been recognised for its hard work and dedication to offering tailor-made recruitment solutions and coming up with an innovative campaign to attract candidates in a tight labour market. We are honoured to have been awarded the Recruitment Campaign of the Year Accolade.

This campaign is representative of the service offered to all of our clients, not just this account so it’s fantastic to have the business recognised by such a highly respected industry body.”
