In the summer of 2011, Gleeson's three directors came together with a vision - to create a problem child in recruitment, a disruptor that challenged the status quo. Using their existing links in the industry they set out with a vision to build a business founded on trust, transparency and integrity, everything they felt the recruitment industry lacked.

Since then Gleeson has grown rapidly now employing staff at its head office in Birmingham and an office in Reading.

The three owners sit as part of the team, giving Gleeson a strong and defined internal culture. Every month the group host a 'Glee Update' - a business-wide meeting that celebrates company and employee achievements, as well as the 'Gleeson Lottery' which sees colleagues nominate anyone who has gone above and beyond to support their fellow team members, to win prizes.

All staff are provided training on anti-discrimination practices in recruitment and measures have been put in place to combat unconscious bias. Gleeson Recruitment Group acknowledge the holidays of all different cultures and ensure that all employees are offered the flexibility to partake in celebrations, as well as sponsoring events that celebrate diversity and multiculturalism.

Here at Gleeson, employee wellbeing and engagement sit right at the heart of our business model. We know that a happy team is a dedicated team, and that achieving this is a continual journey rather than a final destination. One of the most important practices we implement is listening; we encourage and value feedback on every aspect of working life, and act accordingly. We believe that our staff should feel a sense of dignity, pride, and satisfaction in what we do, agree with the principles we stand for as a business, and feel proud to represent us. Our values of trust, transparency and integrity extend far beyond our relationships with clients and candidates – they’re also deeply reflective of the trust we place in our team members in utilising their individual expertise to deliver unrivalled results, along with the reassurance that hard work is recognised, valued, and rewarded. We know from comprehensive research that one of the main factors in facilitating a productive, happy workplace is diversity and inclusion. This year, we’ve focused heavily on making concrete, positive changes in this area, welcoming on board a Non-Executive Director who is a well-known EDI thought leader, Sheryl Miller. Sheryl will be working very closely with senior business leaders to design and implement tailored solutions for Gleeson, tackling unconscious bias in all its forms and further embedding equality into the fabric of our company. The many measures we’ve put in place to ensure work-life balance as well as boost mental and physical wellbeing are indicative of the fact that we deeply care about the happiness and welfare of every team member. We work hard to reward their continued commitment by ensuring that Gleeson is a place they love to come to work every day.
