  • diverse workforce management and CSR initiatives
  • management reporting

Service Delivery

Prior to commencement of every contract we undertake a detailed cultural audit and analysis to ensure we truly understand your workplace and values, enabling us to make more informed resourcing decisions.

In consultation, we then develop recruitment procedures and processes, integrate technology (where applicable), set realistic and measurable KPIs and generate a sustainable candidate pool for on-demand delivery.

Our dedicated Programme Managers are usually based on-site to thoroughly immerse them in your employer brand. Ultimately this means more engaged, reliable and motivated workers.

Our programmes offer you visibility of spend, cost control, reduced attrition, agency management, supplier benchmarking, and consolidated invoicing.
