Debbie Griffin
HR Director
Shawbrook
Rather than watching her organisation struggle to attract talent, Shawbrook HR Director Debbie Griffin made the gamechanging
decision to bring in an RPO provider when Shawbrook needed it most. This decision turned out to be the right one,
and after gaining the trust and support of leadership and making sure the HR and recruitment functions were up to the task,
Shawbrook was able to reap the benefits.
INNOVATION AND IMPACT
Before Griffin decided to employ an RPO, recruitment at Shawbrook was time-consuming, inefficient, and expensive. Now,
just one year into her role at Shawbrook and just six months after the company moved to an RPO solution, the organisation
is saving 44 per cent on agency fees and candidate satisfaction is at a staggering 100 per cent. The switch also reduced time
to hire to just 18 days and allowed Shawbrook to double its workforce from 600 to 1,200.

Bernadette Haslam
Head of Talent Acquisition, Switzerland
Zurich Insurance Company Ltd.
Bernadette Haslam brought Zurich Insurance Company onto the cutting edge when she devised and produced the first
360-degree, interactive virtual reality tour for employer branding purposes in Switzerland, and possibly in Europe. Her tour
leads prospective applicants around the state-of-the-art Skykey building in Zurich, highlighting the variety of opportunities
available within a global insurer.
INNOVATION AND IMPACT
Haslam's virtual reality experience targets millennial job seekers and aims to reduce the cost of hire and increase employee
retention by making insurance more exciting. With 800 hires and over 30,000 applicants each year, Zurich hopes that this
innovation will help attract applicants and quickly identify top candidates. Millennials are 70 per cent of Zurich's new hires,
and the company plans to use Haslam's tech to raise its positioning on employer of choice lists from top 100 to top 20 over
two years.

LEADER OF THE
YEAR FINALIST
Craig Williams
EMEA Talent Acquisition Leader
Wells Fargo & Company
When Craig Williams joined Wells Fargo as the EMEA region talent acquisition leader, the organisation's recruitment function
was in need of a total overhaul. Williams was up to the task and completely transformed the staff, capabilities, and business
confidence in talent acquisition through major improvements to key talent channels, less reliance on agencies, greater hiring
diversity, and more.
INNOVATION AND IMPACT
By cutting down on agency usage, Williams helped generate about £2 million in savings for Wells Fargo. Hiring key team
members to shore up staffing gaps, making stakeholders more accountable for hiring practices, and bolstering programmes
important to the recruitment function also enabled the organisation to bring in quality hires for the year with turnover rate
of less than 1 per cent on new hires. Under Williams' leadership, internal mobility also increased by 26 per cent.
