"We employ only the brightest minds that consistently apply imaginative, real-world thinking that translates into meaningful, pain-free results. Empathy is integral to our approach” Birmingham-based technology and recruitment agency Crimson says.

The company, comprising Crimson Solutions and Crimson Recruitment, is part of the global recruitment and IT outsourcing Harvey Nash Group, which has a $1bn revenue. The business by its nature is driven by people and its reputation is built on providing products and services which genuinely reflect its values of quality, integrity, credibility, innovation and accountability.

The fast-moving company specialises in the full range of IT support, consultancy and search and selection services. It prides itself on delivering agile IT solutions, helping clients transition to cloud and finding them the finest talent. And it likewise applies rigorous criteria to its own recruitment and engagement processes.

Crimson is not just transparent with clients – the company is a Microsoft Gold Partner and promises on its website no one will ever receive a bill they were not expecting – but with employees. Survey results are shared at the company briefing and all manager feedback is shared with the individuals concerned. They, in turn, cascade feedback to their teams and ask for staff views on improvements, if needed.

“The main reason people choose Crimson is because of the strength of our people” the company says, adding that its employees are its top priority. All team leaders undertake weekly Pulse surveys to measure how staff are feeling and monthly lockdown care packages went out to employees and their families.
