NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 16, 2013) - AIA Worldwide, the EMEA headquarters of TMP Worldwide Advertising & Communications, LLC, a global, tech-enabled talent acquisition company, today announced that it has been chosen as the Agency of the Year at the CIPD Recruitment Marketing Awards, held on Wednesday, July 10, 2013.

Since its launch in 1980, the CIPD Recruitment Marketing Awards have recognized excellence and professionalism in recruitment marketing. The awards have evolved each year to stay on top of changing dynamics in the industry in awarding innovation, creativity and effectiveness achieved through best practice recruitment marketing. Due to the innovation, creativity and results shown throughout its client portfolio, AIA received the accolade of being named 'Agency of the Year.'

The agency was noted for its ability to deliver ROI through social media and direct sourcing, moving its clients into smartphone application territory, using augmented reality, combining physical on-campus recruitment activities with online activity and, most importantly, reducing cost per hire and annual sourcing spend. CIPD also recognized AIA for providing its clients with aesthetically pleasing, rich media content and consistency across online channels that enable them to be ever more accessible to the right candidates.

"It is a great honor to have been named as the Agency of the Year by CIPD, which certainly understands what it takes to develop effective recruitment marketing campaigns," said Darren Harris, Head of Digital Strategy of AIA Worldwide. "A key driver of our success is our commitment to investing in our own people who continue to drive innovation and creativity for our exciting client portfolio."
