Global business awards, SRO

Milton Keynes based recruitment specialists Smart Recruit Online have won another major international industry award!

The company, who this year celebrate their eighth anniversary, have won Total Business Magazine’s 2019 Global Recruitment Award, fighting off fierce competition from nine other companies who were short-listed.

“This is just amazing news,” said Smart Recruitment Online’s CEO and founder Mark Stephens, who launched the company in 2011. “To be selected to win this prestigious award from companies worldwide is a phenomenal achievement, and I am so proud.

“The international recognition such as this, for what we are doing to make a difference to the recruitment industry is a massive honour for us as a company, and for our team, too, who have all worked so hard, and been so dedicated, to help us to get where we are just eight years after our first product launch.”

Smart Recruit Online, whose headquarters is in Milton Keynes, provide their clients with specialist and bespoke human resources and recruitment solutions. They have a history of consistently exceeding customer expectations, maintaining a 98 per cent satisfaction rating over the past two years from Feefo, an organisation that independently monitors customer feedback.

And winning the Total Business Magazine global recruitment award follows other prestigious international recognition the company has achieved in the past 12 months.

Said Mr Stephens: “We were recently acknowledged by The Silicon Review as one of the top 30 Best Small Companies to watch in 2019; which was amazing, especially as the Silicon Review is one of the most established global technology publications, and the world’s most trusted online and print publications, read by CEOs, senior management, and business professionals worldwide.

“In addition to that, HR Tech Magazine, a European HR specialist publication, included us in their Top Ten HR/Recruitment technology companies in 2019 – another massive plaudit for us, and another fantastic acknowledgement of what we are achieving, and the impact we are making within our industry.

“It should be pointed out that these acknowledgements – for the Total Business Magazine Award, and by the two high-profile international industry publications – came as a very pleasant surprise to us,” said Mr Stephens. “Smart Recruitment Online was independently selected and assessed for all these recognitions – we didn’t enter any competition, nor were we in any way able to influence our selection, which makes being singled out even more of an achievement by our team!”

Smart Recruit Online have also been acknowledged by Al Magazine as the Most Outstanding Online Recruitment Software in 2018, while the CEO Today magazine presented them with a leadership award for innovation within HR and recruitment.

“What we have achieved over eight years, with a limited budget in software terms, has been truly remarkable,” said Mr Stephens. “Establishing ourselves as industry leaders has been the result of much hard work; achieving international acclaim has been amazing, and with plans in progress to further grow our business and our services in the next couple of years, you might forgive us for being extremely excited about the future!”
