NRF Annual Awards 2015Posted Monday, December 7, 2015
Last Friday saw the largest gathering of people for the Annual National Recruitment Federation Awards and even with Storm Desmond in full force a massive 372 people were in attendance. The venue was the magnificent Shelbourne Hotel and one could not help but notice the LinkedIn pictures being taken one the blue carpet as they entered, everybody looked fantastic and immediately on entry you could feel the electric atmosphere, it was obvious that it was due to be an excellent night!
As sponsors of the NRF, Contracting PLUS were delighted to be in attendance and even more delighted to present the award for Best Temp Recruiter of 2015!
The event kicked off at 6.30pm with a wine/networking reception sponsored by Bond. 7.30pm came around very fast and off we went into the Banquet Hall for the highly anticipated awards ceremony. The room was full of hopefuls, excited and nervous nominees and delighted sponsors who were very grateful to be a part of this occasion.
By all accounts this years awards were the most highly contested yet and I am sure the judges had a very difficult time deciding the winners, each nominee was well deserving of an award, but unfortunately not everybody can win. Contracting PLUS would like to extend a huge congratulations to all those who were nominated, shortlisted and, of course, to the worthy winners.
