It’s National Conversation Week this week!
RECRUITMENT MANAGED SOLUTION CONSULTATION
Our consultations use advanced analytics to design a tailored solution to fit your unique business
How does it work?
Stage 1: Consultation
The first and most important step in the process is gaining an understanding of your business and why you are considering a workforce solution. Initially one of our senior consultants will work with you to understand your overall objectives, make an assessment and provide you with initial ideas. We will then deploy our solutions team, including a Project Manager, who will go into more detail to understand your unique work environment, priorities, challenges, obligations and processes. They will work closely with you throughout the process, so you have a clear point of contact, and communication on progress. Our analytics and assessments will design a solution that will enhance your workforce and evolve over time.
Each solution is unique, just like your business, and therefore, we will not start the process with a preconceived idea of where this journey will take us, as to do so will limited the potential benefit that could be realised.
Technology: When managing the supply of labour, one of the key technologies is a Vendor Management System (VMS). This enables companies to automate many parts of their workforce management such as requisition, vacancy distribution, receiving candidate profiles, interview management, issuing work orders, time & expense control, data, compliance and reporting.
We carry out regular assessments of the best VMS's available, as this ensures that we can advise our clients in a completely unbiased way, whilst getting you the best independent deal.
- Temporary Workforce Management: Scalable solutions to manage a temporary workforce – the scalable, flexible and compliant service for your ever changing resource demands. This subdivides into long term temporary workforce solutions & interim or short term project solutions.
- Permanent Workforce Management: Solutions for full or partial permanent workforce outsourcing, or a one off campaign – the targeted, strategic, consistent, voice of your company into the job market place
- All-inclusive Workforce Management: A one-stop-shop for your cohesive temporary and permanent workforce needs – the comprehensive response to all your resource needs
Not all VMS’s are created equal, and what works for one company will not work for another. We will work together with you to create the best and most appropriate bespoke solution for you, to maximise the available benefits for your organisation.
Stage 2: Implementation
During the implementation stage, in addition to the Project Manager, we will also provide you with a key member of staff or team, normally to be based on-site, who will deliver this service once it goes live. This is important as they will have been with the initial consultation team, and therefore, will fully understand your goals and the service agreed with you.
This person or team massively reduces any disputation when rolling out the technology system, making sure that everyone uses it correctly. This support goes beyond the standard pre-go-live training for key users of the service. Having someone neutral within your business helps to keep things moving, ensuring that standards in any new processes, management of suppliers and technology are kept high, and that any issues are resolved quickly and effectively.
The transition from implementation to Go-Live should be as seamless as possible, minimising the disruption to day-to-day activities. It is designed to release time and cost back into the business from day one.
Stage 3: Ongoing management
The longer a solution is given to work, processes become embedded and cost savings increase, the more you will continue to reap the rewards. In the vast majority of cases we would recommend keeping an on-site person/team to maintain high standards, who will always be looking for future improvements as your business needs change over time. It is important that once the system has been used for a period of time that you then use the reporting software effectively. Once you gain full visibility of your recruitment system and supply chain and how it all works together, you may want to make more adjustments. This again is where our team can help.

I have worked with Simon as a supplier for nearly 20 years. During this time, I have always found that the solutions are very effective for suppliers. He instils the right balance for both the client and supplier, where the services are fair, open and responsive. There is no doubt that the client and the supply relationships are their focus. These are services we are happy to support wherever we can.
MD Recruitment Company
I have worked with Simon Woodhouse for over 10 years and during this time I have received first class service as a recruiter. The flow of information has always kept us in touch with requirements.
The solution (both the technology & the team assembled) were intuitive and responsive to our needs. The job descriptions have been detailed and meaningful. It is apparent that Simon has an excellent knowledge of market trends and client/candidate expectations. So as a recruiter I have found that this information has been invaluable in sourcing the right people for the end client. It has been evident that Simon forms first class relationships with both the supplying recruitment agencies and the end client.
I would recommend Simon to any potential client or recruitment company.
When presented with a challenge to support our Permanent Recruitment challenge, Simon responded with a very cost effective, and comprehensive solution, that we relied heavily upon during a major restructuring exercise. So much so, that once the initial phase came to an end we retained the service. The support provided to the HR teams and the hiring managers was second to none, and it became an integral part of our operations.
We had an opportunity to restructure our approach in regards to how we utilised contract labour and recruitment. The burden to the company had become significant, and major change was required. The experience Simon bought to the Change Management project was a key component behind its success. The level of buy-in to the program from within our organisation, and down into the supply chain was a credit to Simon and his team.
I have known Simon for 20 years and in that time Simon has been my colleague, my manager and my mentor. Simon is a very kind and thoughtful person, but will ensure the job is done to the best of his and his team’s ability. His management style is one of a consultative approach and leadership, allowing the team to be part of the bigger picture and ownership of the project in hand, but being there for support and guidance when required. He has a very comprehensive understanding of Procurement and the Managed Service Process, which has allowed him to manage some very successful implementations and on-going business. A great asset to any organisation.
