Thomas International (“Thomas”), the global talent assessment platform provider for the mid-market, has won the ‘Leadership Through Challenging Times Award’ at the Thames Valley SME 100 Growth Index Awards.

The annual awards ceremony recognises the region’s high growth small and medium-sized enterprises. This accolade highlights the benefits of Thomas’ coaching and assessment services for organisations seeking to recover from the pandemic, as well as the company’s dedication to building resilience among businesses during this challenging time.

Thomas assessments can help SMEs to identify ‘best-fit’ candidates quickly, consistently and objectively. With job vacancies in the UK exceeding one million, the highest number on record, this is something that businesses need even more urgently as they look to secure the talent they need to move forward with confidence.

In contrast with reliance on CVs and interviews alone, Thomas assessments offer an unbiased view of the in-role performance of both existing employees and recruitment candidates. Companies can compare a candidate's profile with the preferred aptitudes and behavioural traits of their ideal candidate to inform recruitment and development activities.

To be included in the Thames Valley SME 100 listing, businesses need to be based in the Thames Valley and to have grown their turnover significantly in the past year. Some 11,000 companies globally currently benefit from Thomas assessments, with many investing in behavioural insights to guide and support their post-pandemic recovery efforts.

Sabby Gill, CEO of Thomas International, said of the win: “In what has been a uniquely difficult year, businesses across the globe have faced exceptional challenges. As a people-focused business, it is especially gratifying to have been able to help our customers and partners through this crisis. We love what we do, and I am proud that Thomas has fulfilled our mission of supporting higher human achievement during this testing time, and that this has been recognised with this remarkable Leadership award.”
