To shorten and improve candidates’ registration and on-boarding processes to improve competition by increasing speed to market for PSA contracts.
Ochre Recruitment had begun to experience a shift in their success after many years of dominance in recruitment for Clinical and Allied Health clients. They had been successfully appointed to a number of lucrative PSA contracts, however more and more frequently they found the candidates they registered had secured other work by the time they were contacted, due to the length of time taken to enter all candidate details into the database.
Talent shortages created by an influx of new agencies competing for a suitably qualified candidate pool and the industry in total experiencing a widening gap between qualified and experienced candidates developed into Ochre Recruitment’s need for speed to market to ensure business success and development.
Some of their clients were now also scrutinising procurement contracts for efficiency of candidate management and transparency of margins and on costs for contract engagement; and with breaches of contract resulting in reviews and penalties, the possibility that their narrow profit margins was a real risk which they needed to manage.
In analyzing their needs assisted by Rec Tech Solutions, it was clear that speed to market and compliance were primary motivations for Ochre Recruitment’s decision to invest in technology. Combined with concerns about developing an unfavourable market reputation with clients and candidates, and the potential loss of profit and contract, Ochre Recruitment was keenly motivated to automate their processes and workflow to avoid this situation and recover candidate market share.
Their management saw clear benefit in a solution that would enable them to digitalise forms for online completion, enabling full contract compliance reporting requirements simplifying and speeding up PSA compliance reporting processes. When advised by Rec Tech solutions that the same technology could also assist them with reducing the time involved in registering candidates to improve their competitiveness in the market.
Vendor and change management facilitated by Rec Tech solutions was also able to ensure that their outsourced administrative and system integration requirements were efficiently and quickly addressed.
