TIARA Talent Solutions Awards 2020 Winners Announced

  • 21 leading RPO, MSP and Talent Solutions firms attend virtual Talent Solutions Awards ceremony 
  • 9 crowned winners with 10 highly commended by panel of 20 judges 
  • Alexander Mann Solutions triumphs as overall winner 

Friday 18th September 2020 – The winners of the 2020 TIARA Talent Solutions Awards were revealed in a virtual ceremony attended by CEOs, Marketing Directors and senior leaders of some of the UK’s leading RPO and MSP companies. 

All of the finalists shortlisted for the inaugural TIARA Talent Solutions Awards are an inspiration to the recruitment outsourcing industry, with 21 established businesses and more recent market entrants managing multiple billions of client spend, hiring hundreds of thousands of people each year and employing over 15,000 people in their own right,” said Ken Brotherston, Managing Director of TALiNT Partners. “The quality of entries across the board was very high, with the winners’ entries being nothing less than outstanding. This makes a TIARA Talent Solutions Award a powerful and prestigious endorsement. 

The judging process was designed around the varied and complex demands of employers based on key performance metrics, case studies and testimonials. The 2020 judging panel brought together some of the leading practitioners in talent acquisition from organisations such as Credit Suisse, Royal Mail, Thermo Fisher, Iceland Foods, Rolls Royce, Deutsche Bank and Virgin Media. 

An impressive panel of judges was chaired by Jim Richardson. 

The RPO industry has evolved spectacularly over the last 30 years and, whilst being able to fulfil open requisitions quickly and cost-effectively remains as important as ever, as TA has become more strategic, the RPO industry has had to respond by developing an array of best in class services.

The TIARA Talent Solutions Awards has been set up by those who really understand TA functions and RPO. I have been incredibly impressed by the quality of the responses and would like to thank every firm who entered; they play a key role in driving continuous improvements across the RPO industry. The sector has a big part to play in how we recover from the pandemic and I am excited in what the future holds.

“Alexander Mann Solutions was crowned TIARA Talent Solutions Overall Winner, having also picked up the Early Talent, Best Use of Tech awards and the Long Term Partnership award in conjunction with NES. Judges praised AMS for high standards across all areas and consistently delivering on large, complex global projects”.
