24 Sep 2019

Compass Executives are proud to announce that we have won the “Recruiter of the Year” Award at the 2019 HealthInvestor Awards, as part of Compass Holding Group.

The largest attended, and most recognised Awards ceremony for the Independent health and social care sectors, the HealthInvestor Awards is considered the industry event of the year for bringing together the leading Providers, Investors and Business Leaders in the UK markets, with more than 1,200 attendees on the night.

Commenting on receiving the Award, Director, Sam Leighton-Smith said:

It is a wonderful achievement for the group to win such a prestigious award twice in the last 3 years. It reinforces the feedback that we have received from our partnering clients that our standards, delivery and manner in which we approach our assignments is best in class. Recruitment is such a critical component to so many organisations and whilst this award is recognition of what we have achieved our focus now is to ensure that we not only match but enhance our offering in the future. We have a tremendously talented staff base that are looking to learn every day, and in an industry that evolves at such a pace it is a real pleasure to be part of a vibrant, enterprising group of businesses.”

Judges feedback

Some of the comments from the judges are below:

“The group’s impressive growth record is testimony to the success it achieves for clients. With its broad coverage of the health and social care sector, focused subsector specialists, and differentiated offerings for senior executive, management and corporate services personnel, Compass provides a comprehensive service to the industry. The more recent addition of the dedicated Corporate Services division shows a willingness to innovate in response to client requirements.

Compass has proven its ability to transport talent to the sector and fill c-level positions with aspiring talent. Should be commended for its sector reach.

Compass is immersed in the health and care sector, supports all organisations types, possesses specialised industry knowledge, and operates to high standards.”

It is for this reason it is immensely humbling to be winners of this prestigious accolade, now having won it twice in the last three years.

We are very grateful to all candidates and clients who have contributed towards the success of the business over the years, and are particularly appreciative to those who voted for us in the Awards. A panel of unknown, independent judges selected by HealthInvestor were given a shortlist of finalists along with supporting evidence as part of the judging process in order to make the decision.

To all who have been involved with Compass Holding Group to date: a huge thank you!
