Welcome to the Chamber
Hillingdon Chamber of Commerce was established in 1908 to work in the interests of the local business community and to help them achieve their full business potential. The Committee is run by a group of dedicated volunteers who have expertise and experience in the private, public and voluntary sector who meet on a monthly basis. The group is headed by the Chairman, Mike Langan, who has held the position for over 10 years. The Chamber has ties with West London Business and works in partnership with many local organisations such as Heathrow Airports Limited, Ward Williams, Uxbridge College and Brunel University.
Heathrow are proud to be a longstanding member of Hillingdon Chamber of Commerce. By working with the Chamber, and through them connecting with other Hillingdon businesses and organisations, we are better able to deliver on our commitment to help develop skills, create jobs and encourage growth in the Hillingdon area. The Chamber works tirelessly to provide invaluable networking opportunities which we take advantage of, to engage with local businesses of all sizes. We are grateful to the Chamber for working alongside us on the Heathrow Business Summit to offer further opportunities for their members to connect with the airport supply chain, and look forward to seeing our working relationship thrive for years to come in what is going to be an exciting time for the airport and for the West London business community.

Age UK Hillingdon is a charity which works solely in the Borough, providing a wide range of services to help older local people get the most out of later life. Joining the Chamber of Commerce has helped us in many ways. It has presented me with many networking opportunities which have led to both financial donations to the charity as well as many offers of goods in kind and pro bono help. Aside from this type of support, it has also enabled me to promote the work of the charity to a wider audience which has helped to raise awareness of our services which in turn has made a significant difference to the lives of older people in our area. My role at Age UK Hillingdon is as much about driving people to use our services as it is to raise money to fund those services and the Hillingdon Chamber of Commerce has helped and supported me greatly in this. I would heartily recommend membership as you never know what opportunities may present themselves.

Here in the UK Clients have told us that prior to the introduction of Prevue Assessments into their recruitment process the following critical issues were a continual concern:
• The associated high costs in Time and Money
• The quality of hire and Job Fit
• Retention and Productivity of the new person
These are universal concerns and substantiated by a recent IBM Survey where those HR Professionals who responded commented; “Regrettable hires are a problem. They would not rehire 31% of their recent hires if given the chance to do it again”. Add to this 28% mentioning they do not use an Accurate, Valid and Reliable Assessment within their hiring process and their recruitment challenge grows.
If any of the above resonates with your recruitment experiences then Prevue may have a solution worth closer evaluation.
Through Coensus, Prevuehr offer a ‘Benchmarked’ online Psychometric Assessment. All have been designed and authored here in the UK and used by In House Recruiters to improve all aspects of the hiring process, guaranteed!
In particular to improve job fit and accuracy of selection. They can also be used for ongoing People Development, Coaching and Succession Planning.
If your company is hiring new talent; you employ 30 people and above; you have a limited budget and a poverty of time; then why not substantiate our claims and learn more by accepting our offer of a no obligation Free Trial.
Put to rest any fears you might have concerning Fees, ours start at around £30 per Assessment, and for larger Users we offer an Unlimited Use Annual License based on the number of employees in the organisation.
