Cork’s FRS Recruitment has been awarded two international awards. They picked up an award for ‘Best Staffing Firm in Ireland’ from global research and advisory firm Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA). 

This was in addition to receiving an EU business award after being named ‘Best Recruitment Agency’ in the Republic of Ireland in the European Enterprise Awards presented by EU Business News. FRS Recruitment is one of the leading recruitment businesses operating in Ireland.

They provide assistance across a wide range of sectors, including commercial, IT, healthcare, construction, agricultural, life sciences and engineering sectors as well as temporary industrial and commercial positions.

The Midleton based business was recognised at the SIA’s ‘Best Staffing Firms to Work For’ Awards ceremony held in Miami, Florida in the US.

A record 450 firms sought participation in the 2023 Best Staffing Firms to Work For awards, conducted by SIA in conjunction with Quantum Workplace. Each staffing firm’s internal employees were asked to complete an online survey that measured key engagement categories such as teamwork, trust in senior leaders, diversity and inclusion, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits. Key findings from the survey results are covered in SIA’s industry research.

Speaking in reaction to the win, Lynne McCormack, General Manager of FRS Recruitment said, “We are truly honoured to be awarded ‘Best Staffing Firm to Work For in Ireland’. This award is especially important as it is judged based on the survey responses provided by our team members. The heartbeat of our organisation has always been our people so it is fantastic to see how highly they enjoy working for FRS Recruitment and how impactful our efforts to build a strong team spirit have been.

“Our business was born from a co-operative heritage and that continues to guide the way we work today. We have developed a high performing and innovative culture that dictates our success but also our agility and willingness to keep up with the latest developments and embrace change.

“Our enthusiasm to adapt and grow allows us to evolve quickly, navigating the changes in the various sectors we work with along with the broader technological, economic and cultural changes in Ireland. When this is also coupled with the European Enterprise Award recognition it really means a lot. Hopefully all our team also realise that these awards are thanks to their efforts and the fantastic workplace culture they all help create on a daily basis,” Ms McCormack said.

A 100% owned Irish business, FRS Recruitment is part of FRS Network – the social enterprise co-operative. As well as their Midleton office they also run operations in 9 other locations around the country including Dublin, Galway, Kerry, Limerick, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Cavan, Portlaoise and Tullamore.
