August 2018

Hays, the world’s leading recruiting experts in qualified, professional and skilled people, was recently awarded the ‘Best LinkedIn Company Page of 2018’ by LinkedIn, for the second year in a row.

LinkedIn named the top ten company pages after analyzing 13,000 nominations from LinkedIn members for over 900 company pages. Hays was placed ahead of large global brands such as Schneider Electric, Deloitte and EY. Hays also won the award in 2017.

Hays, with over 2.4million LinkedIn followers, has had a strong presence on the professional social network since 2012, when through the development of cross system awareness it became the first recruitment company to work closely with LinkedIn, providing an even better offering to their clients and candidates. Hays CEO, Alistair Cox, who has been a LinkedIn Influencer since 2012, has been listed in the top ten most viewed LinkedIn leader profiles in the UK.

Catherine Gutsell, Senior Content & Social Media Manager, Hays plc, said on the award, “We are very pleased to be awarded this title once again this year. This recognition is testament to our commitment to creating quality content at scale, as well as the hard work and dedication that our teams across the business have put in to sustaining and optimising our LinkedIn presence globally.”
