Compass Holding Group win LaingBuisson’s 2019 Recruiter Award

15 Nov 2019

Compass Executives are delighted to announce that we have won the prestigious Recruiter Award at the LaingBuisson Awards 2019 as part of Compass Holding Group.

With over 1,000 attendees on the night, the LaingBuisson Awards recognise excellence within the healthcare and social care sector, judging focused on the people providing care as well as advisors.

Director, Sam Leighton-Smith was thrilled with the win, commenting:

“You do not win LaingBuisson awards by accident. To have won the double in 2019 after scooping the Health Investor recruiter of the year in June is a truly wonderful achievement. Every employee associated with our brands should be very proud of the way they conduct themselves on a daily basis. Our standards, precision and level of delivery is the highest it has ever been, and the warm words from industry colleagues that accompanied the awards were a joy to hear. We thank our staff and customers for their loyalty to our offering and vow to improve again as our story continues into the 2020’s”

The business are hugely proud to have won this award in the first year of entering. The judges fed back that the strong financial performance of the company is reflected in the high quality service provision which was one of the key stand-out factors in being awarded the accolade.

Market-leaders for all aspects of recruitment and executive search across the health, social care and education sectors, Compass Holding Group is comprised of three separate offerings:

  • Compass Executives: responsible for C-suite search and selection for health and social care professionals in the Private Equity backed, Independent and NFP sectors;
  • Compass Associates: delivering clinical and non-clinical recruitment solutions for entry and middle management placements across all aspects and sub-sectors (including Life Sciences) of the health and social care space;
  • Compass Corporate Services: the most recently established Compass brand who provide corporate and business leadership hires across HR, Finance, Marketing and Property & Estates – again dedicated to the health and social care space.

We are hugely grateful for all the support, along with the candidates who have contributed to the success of the business over the years – and in particular we are appreciative to those who voted for us in the Awards. A panel of independent judges were given a shortlist of finalists along with supporting evidence and a suggested scoring system as part of the judging process in order to make the decision.

To everyone who has been involved with Compass Holding Group – a big thank you!
