On Tuesday 17 July 2018 we hosted our first ever candidate appreciation and recognition event at Rotunda Bar and Restaurant in King’s Cross which was kindly sponsored by Giant, Danbro and Walker Smith Global. We hosted the event as a way of saying thank you and recognising the hard work that our candidates have put in over the past year. Over 30 of our locum candidates attended the event and enjoyed an afternoon of drinks and food in the sun whilst networking and relaxing with like-minded legal professionals.
As a business we are committed to ‘putting people first’ and events like this are a great way for us to give back to our candidates for the excellent work they do day in day out. In the hustle and bustle of daily life it is often easy to forget how important a simple thank you can be valued. By hosting events like this we are not only able to say thank you to our candidates but we are also able to build strong working relationships.
We believe that recognising our candidates and the work that they do is essential for motivation and helps us build up long and lasting relationships with them, which is crucially important for us as a business. We pride ourselves on building and maintaining these strong working relationships to fulfil the best outcome for both our candidates and the firms that we work with. Relationships cultivate loyalty, build trust and form long lasting connections with each of our candidates.
This event gave us the opportunity not only to say a simple thank you to our candidates but to also show that we are keen to go above and beyond for the excellent work that they do. We also try to align everything we do with our company values which are Respect, Passionate and Engaging and this event allowed to show those values to our loyal candidate base. The BBQ allowed us to engage on a more personal level, showing that we are passionate about what we do and how we assist to find the correct role. We were able to engage in great conversation and build up the mutual respect needed to build long-standing relationships. The evening also showed our candidates how much we respect their input into how we secure them roles and the values that we follow.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody that was involved in setting this event up and of course to our candidates for attending the BBQ on the evening. We hope everyone who joined us had a fantastic evening, we are already looking forward to planning our next candidate recognition event in 2019.
