Winning an Inspire award is an honour and a culmination of the dedication and commitment shown time and again by the staff at HCR. We all work as a team, we all work hard, and the joy of this achievement is felt by all.”

HCR was applauded by the INSPIRE judges for their growth and diversification throughout the recession, as well as their impressive 98% customer satisfaction rate.
