Tony Mays, corporate PR manager at SHL, said: ‘Hotwire demonstrated a clear understanding of our business and the issues and trends impacting our customers. This appreciation, combined with Hotwire’s experience in running international campaigns and track record on strategy and execution, made it the right partner for SHL.’

Alex MacLaverty, MD technology at Hotwire, added: ‘Today’s fiercely competitive global economy combined with broad based support for the equality agenda, mean it is imperative organisations take full advantage of the transformative benefits that behavioural and ability assessment tools can provide.

‘As a business that itself treats talent spotting and development as a true entrepreneurial endeavour, we are thrilled to have been appointed as SHL’s agency.’
