The UK has been enjoying one of the lowest unemployment levels in the western world and one of the fastest growing economies, largely due to its reliance on a flexible workforce. But this is under threat of destabilisation from legislation such as new T&S restrictions and the abolition of dispensations, recruiters in particular, face the biggest margin squeezes ever. Agencies need to plan ahead to remain profitable.
Some recruiters may still have misgivings about outsourcing, but far better to explore its opportunities now before legislation gives them no option. We believe that in the future, RPO providers will become an integral part of agency operations, enabling them to focus solely on their fee-earning activities. And few BPO providers have the level of understanding and affinity with the recruitment sector as Anderson RPO.
Screening candidates for permanent or temporary positions is costly and time-consuming; which is where RPO services can really help. Our client facing team based in the Philippines are trained linguists and speak perfect English so can handle many of your routine resourcing function – but for about 50% of what it presently costs you. Similarly, if you have workers on unsociable shift patterns then our out of hours ‘night line’ service could prove critical to not only fulfilling contracts but ultimately to your business reputation. We can ensure that workers are contacted by phone to tell them where and when to report for duty and to chase them if they don’t show up for work. Alternatively, if you are working within very tight SLA deadlines and need processing to occur throughout the night, then our teams based in Mumbai and Manila can facilitate this for you. There really is no task that we cannot handle, save of course helping you to find the right candidate for the right role.
Here is just a “taster” of the many tasks that we can help you with:
- CV verification
- Screening job advert responses
- Qualifying candidates
- Data entry
- Time-sheet data collection
- Wake-up calls for shift workers
- Contacting staff who fail to report for work
