Orion Group welcomed the news from the annual league table by Recruitment International magazine - The Top 250 Report – which sees companies from across the world contribute their performance figures during the period from January to December 2011.
Not only did the business rank number 15 overall in the UK, but it triumphed in the Scottish element of the report stealing the number one spot in its home country. Furthermore the recruitment giant came out top in the oil and gas energy table and took the number nine spot in the rail specialist category.
These results show that Orion Group continues to stand shoulder to shoulder with the biggest and best operators in the UK, whilst outperforming all peers in the recruitment sector in Scotland.
Recognised as a valuable reference point, the Report acts as a guide to those working in key human resources, procurement and personnel roles, showcasing who is who in the recruitment sector.
Alan Savage, chairman of Orion Group said: “In terms of industry recognition, The Top 250 Report is our Premier League. To be ranked as number 15 in the whole of the UK is testament to the hard work we put in to make our business as profitable and successful as possible.
“We’ve had a phenomenal year. Only last week we were awarded the SCDI Highlands and Islands Chairman Award for Outstanding Business Achievement which was a fantastic honour.
“These accolades don’t just look good on a reception desk or collect dust on a shelf, they are a genuine morale boost for staff here and coming to work is a real treat when everyone is on a high.
“2012 is a significant year for us as it marks Orion Group’s 25th anniversary. Looking at what we have achieved since our early beginnings in 1987 is hard to believe. And it’s all down to the excellent people we employ here at Orion so a massive thanks to you all.”
