ACCJ The Journal - RI AWARDS - Recruiting Recognition
AUGUST 2018 RI AWARDS
Recruiting Recognition RI Awards honor Japan’s top companies
By Megan Casson
Competition is fierce in the recruitment industry. Being recognized for excellence is important for setting yourself apart in the eyes of job seekers, and the RI Awards—the industry’s biggest competition held annually in Australia, the United Kingdom, and Japan—is one of the most sought-after accolades.
This year’s black-tie gala, co-produced by Custom Media, publisher of The ACCJ Journal, brought together the biggest and best recruitment companies in Japan on July 29 at Tokyo American Club.
A judging panel of 14 industry experts selected the winners, and RI Awards Director David Head presented 18 trophies to 14 companies.
Head spoke to The ACCJ Journal about why he thinks the honors are important. “It’s just the sheer fact that we reward—and look for—the best in the recruitment sector. It’s a great way for us to highlight the industry we work in and the great people we have in the industry. That’s what it’s all about.”
