As we go into a New Year, it’s a great time for all of us internally to take a minute to reflect and look back at everything we have accomplished this year. With everyone’s support we are moving Tangent forward at great speeds as well as building our business and making a significant impact on the Recruitment world. We’re moving into 2019 with profound momentum and we are always looking to find new ways that we can grow and expand as a company within our field.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at everything we have achieved in 2018…
In June this year, we took part in the Tangent sponsored, Little Havens 5K Kapow run. This is the UK offices biggest charity event of the year and everyone from our Billericay office came down and celebrated with other members of the public! Little Havens is an Essex based children's hospice that provides support and care to terminally ill children and their families, so we are supporting an extremely worthwhile cause.
Halloween saw our offices dress up, which included a donation to Little Havens. During the month of December, we also hosted a Tangent Christmas Party which included all of our staff in our UK Office. Our International offices also hosted their own Christmas parties, which were enjoyed by all! We also conducted a raffle and a “Christmas Jumper” day to raise even more money for Havens Hospice.
We worked with a staggering 91 new clients globally, across both permanent and contract accounts. All of the above being new relationships, new roles for us to work and a great new partnership between Tangent and other global companies!
2018 also saw us working in a number of new different countries and placing consultants into these countries effectively and efficiently! Some of the countries included Antigua & Barbuda, Samoa, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, Nicaragua, Guadeloupe and Guyana to name a few! Our internal Logistics team worked with companies around the world to ensure we were working compliantly and were able to make the process as smooth and as easy as possible for our consultants being placed into these countries.
We received 2 brand new shiny awards, including Best Candidate Service Winner - 2018 & Recruitment International Awards Dubai - Best IT and Digital Recruitment Agency – 2018! These are very prestigious and impressive awards to take home and ones that we feel very proud of to display in our awards cabinet!
We worked with RIDI (Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative) who we helped to break down the barriers faced by the millions of disabled people who are entering or progressing through the job market and ASPIRE, an organisation working with young adults to achieve their full potential. We attended a number of events that they hosted and always feel proud to work with such inspiring organisations.
LinkedIn saw us grow from 62,895 followers to 81,887 over the last 12 months. This was a growth of 18,992 so a big hello to all of our new followers!
I think it’s safe to say we are all looking forward to welcoming a new year and seeing what there is to accomplish in 2019. With offices on every continent, we have the experience, systems and teams in place to find and relocate talent from anywhere in the world and we are excited to finish 2018 on a high!
