1st Exec Receives Supplier Excellence Award

Kelly Ocg Prize

Award Ceremony, Recruitment Award, Kelly OCG...

We’re delighted to share the news that 1st Executive has received a KellyOCG award for Supplier Excellence.

KellyOCG, the outsourcing and consulting group of Kelly Services, presented the award last week at the Spring Supplier Forum in Amsterdam, recognising their top performers. Suppliers were evaluated on three criteria:

  • Scorecard results of performance
  • Compliance
  • Engagement survey results

To be 1 of 19 recipients of the award globally from a pool of over 3,000 is a fantastic accolade for 1st Executive, acknowledging how outstanding service, aligned values and strategic partnerships can positively impact the client and candidate experience. 

The key metrics that secured the top spot for 1st Executive were:

  • 100% response rate
  • 100% of deadlines met
  • 100% compliant
  • 69% fill rate – a rate unheard of previously

Having overseen and managed the work, Director, Sally Davis, and Principal Consultant, Jim Bellicoso, were thrilled to accept the trophy on behalf of the 1st Executive team.

Sally explained, 'The recognition by KellyOGC reinforces our commitment to our own values of "going the extra mile" and ensuring "guaranteed market expertise" when connecting talent. This is a valuable opportunity for business growth globally and I’m hugely proud of our achievement and relationship with KellyOCG.’

Jim adds: 'This award is an excellent example of how specialist recruitment agencies can build effective strategic partnerships with MSP/RPO organisations in order to deliver the best possible outcome for all customers. With the additional value-add services we provide, such as rate benchmarking and client advisory before requirements go to market, we believe this partnership will only get better in years to come.'

The award is a fantastic accomplishment for the team, but ultimately reflects on the success we’ve been able to help our candidates achieve, so we look forward to supporting even more people find their ideal jobs throughout 2019.
