Recruitment specialist Thorn Baker Group has succeeded in passing the Compliance Test required to retain membership of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC). The company has passed with flying colours, achieving a perfect 100% score.
The REC is the recruitment industry’s recognised body supporting its members in achieving and maintaining the highest standards of recruitment practice.
Designed to ensure recruiters know the relevant legislation and uphold the ethics detailed in the REC’s Code of Practice, success in the Compliance Test signals the highest professional conduct in the recruitment industry. Going further than the legal requirements, the Code of Practice demands a commitment to strong ethical behaviours such as honesty, integrity, respect for others and being socially responsible.
As indicated by the perfect score, Thorn Baker Group met all the requirements, despite the recent pandemic complications, demonstrating the company’s commitment to conducting its practices ethically and in line with the REC’s principles.
Paul Jackman, Thorn Baker Group CEO, comments: “We are really pleased to have achieved the maximum score as it is a reflection of the service we provide and the results we deliver to our clients and candidates.
“This has not been without its challenges over the past 18 months as, like many businesses, we have had to change our ways of working due to the pandemic, but our compliance team has worked hard to ensure we are ahead of the game when it comes to implementing new legislation and recruitment practices and this has been instrumental in us achieving the perfect score.”
