London: Capco, the business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry, has won three accolades at the In-house Recruitment Awards 2013. The awards include Best Recruitment Video, Best On-boarding Strategy and Best Employee Referral Strategy, reflecting Capco's commitment to its growing workforce and innovative recruitment processes.
Andrew Tarver, Capco Partner and UK CEO said, "We have witnessed significant growth over the last three years, increasing the UK workforce from 150 employees to over 400. These awards are an excellent achievement for us as we continue to expand. They reaffirm our belief in a culture of empowerment and focus on communities within our organisation, as we actively encourage employees to be directly involved in the recruitment process and forming the future of the organisation."
Capco's esteemed recruitment video showcases the firm's diverse and creative culture. From inception to distribution, the recruitment tool was created entirely by Capco employees. It has achieved over 6,800 views on YouTube and received consistently positive feedback from interview candidates.
The consultancy was also commended for its on-boarding strategy and the successful integration of new joiners within the company. This strategy goes further than a one day induction, enabling new joiners to become active consultants and part of the Capco community as soon as possible by adding instant value to the business. The firm was also awarded for its employee referral strategy, which saw 29 percent of hires between July 2012 and July 2013 being introduced via Capco staff.
The In-house recruitment awards recognise the increasing achievements of UK in-house recruitment teams and the individuals that form them. This win complements Capco's previous success having been ranked 27th in The Times Top 100 companies to work for in 2012 and again in 2013.
