We’re delighted to share the news that one of our Ignata businesses - SF Group, a professional services recruitment business, has been placed within the 75 Best Companies to work for in the Midlands. The positioning is based on a survey whereby employees respond to over 50 questions based around 8 workplace factors. We then receive the feedback, responses and comparative results, allowing us to improve investment into our staff year on year.
This employee survey is reportedly the most academically rigorous and accurate way of ensuring workplace engagement and it’s no big surprise to us that they were positioned as the highest scoring recruitment business in the Midlands!
Here is what SF Group had to say...
Just how connected are we with our employees?
People are our business and that passion starts with our own employees, employees are our number one. We have over 100 specialist recruitment consultants who have chosen to build their careers at SF Group and we’re very proud that 35% of our people have more than 10 years’ service with us. This year we are celebrating 20 years of SF Group and looking back on our evolution from a tenacious start-up to being one of the largest independents in the Midlands today, shows an incredible achievement and as ever, this is largely down to our people.
So why do our people choose us and more importantly why do they stay?
We believe that people succeed when they have clear and achievable personal goals and when they are invested in to deliver those goals. Our training and development programme is designed not just to build recruitment skills and short term success, but also to create future leaders through mentoring, personality profiling and a programme of leadership training for every individual who takes their first steps into management.
We have high expectations of our people and we reward them accordingly. We pay our people competitively and offer an uncapped commission structure with attractive annual bonus potential, which puts our people in control of their own wealth creation. All of this before we even mention our new suite of benefits which are available to all employees and offers something for everyone depending on personal circumstances and interests.
Since 2012, SF Group has been part of Ignata, a fast-growing Talent Consultancy which encompasses a number of specialist recruitment brands. What unites all the businesses in our group is a passion for exceptional client service and a desire to work with and for the best people in the industry. Having the backing of a larger group gives us the firepower to continue investing in our people, our clients and of course the business that we are all incredibly proud to work for.
