Home Retail Group wins prestigious recruitment award

We are very pleased to announce that our 'Talentspotter' referral scheme won the 'Best Employee Referral Strategy' award at the In-House Recruitment awards last night.

The Talentspotter scheme was introduced in October 2011 to enable colleagues, across Home Retail Group, to refer future employees to the business and to receive monetary awards for successful placements.

The judges were impressed with the use of both online and offline communications - including the intranet, HTML emails, posters and giveaways such as mugs and keyrings.

Karen Jackson, Group Resourcing Manager, said "I am over the moon for the team in relation to this award. We identified a 73% increase in employee referrals in the first three months alone. Our employees know what it is like to work here. They know the skills and behaviours needed to be a success. This makes them our greatest advocates. Talentspotter is a simple way for us to thank them when they proactively introduce us to someone who later joins the team at Home Retail Group."
