Best Recruitment Awards Tips

Which Recruitment Awards to Enter in 2020, and How to See ROI!


We’re passionate about recruitment awards! Whether you’re entering, winning, attending or spying, there’s ROI to be had for recruiters, beyond simply having a recruitment award trophy.

We Are Award Winners!

We’ve been award-winners 3 years in a row. We are proud to be APSCo Affiliate Member of the Year. Luckily, we followed our own advice when submitting our entry.  I help recruitment marketers to craft their awards entries and to focus on which awards are really going to add value.

(Recruitment Marketing Hack: often the best awards are the ones which are NOT recruitment specific – i.e. the ones for your sector… which are not always recruitment – IT / Games / Medical, etc.)
