Locum People part of the Cook Investment Group, the Milton Keynes-based medical recruitment company, is celebrating after winning three more accolades in the national ‘Best Companies To Work For’ scheme.

The company, which provides locum doctors, nurses and allied healthcare professionals to the NHS, has been named as……

  • One of the top 100 best mid-size companies to work for in the UK;
  • One of the 100 best companies to work for – of any size – in the southeast of England, and
  • One of the recruitment industry’s 40 best companies to work for in the UK.

The ‘Best Companies To Work For’ scheme recently praised Cook Investment Group’s “outstanding level of engagement……recognition for all you have done to make your organisation one of the best places to work.”

The latest accolades are further proof of the company’s comprehensive care, incentive and training packages for its 130 staff.

Says Cook Investment Group managing director David Cook: “The pandemic has provided us with the greatest challenges we have ever faced since we launched our first recruitment agency in 2009.

“But we are a family business, operating on the principle that our staff are our greatest asset, and we are assiduous in looking after them.

“At the beginning of the pandemic, we set up an engagement programme for employees who preferred to work from home; maintained our industry-leading reward and incentive schemes for all staff; and made our offices the safest, and most welcoming, that they could be.

“And the directors have even set-to personally, building an outside hospitality area, where we can hold barbecues and social events.”

The final rankings for the 2021 ‘Best Companies To Work For’ will be announced at an online event on Friday, 21 May, hosted by TV presenter Dan Walker.
