Readers Choice 2019: Best Recruitment Outsourcing Solution
Finding the right people as you grow your business is critical. It can be the difference between success and failure. But not all organisations have the resources to do the full spectrum of the recruitment process. It can be very time-consuming, so outsourcing makes a lot of sense to some employers.
We honour those companies that provide the best recruitment outsourcing solutions in the HR industry, with The HRM Asia Readers Choice Award 2019 going to Resource Solutions.
David Barr, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific for Resource Solutions, explained some of the key factors behind the win: “This year we conducted the biggest survey of job seeking candidates (over 3,000 candidates), and the biggest audit of recruitment processes at our client companies (over 240 companies), in order to understand what candidates want and expect when applying for and interviewing for a job, compared to what companies offer”.
This was a massive and comprehensive survey by the firm, which paid dividends for Barr and his team. “The results enabled us to truly understand the importance of candidate experience,” he says. “The gap between what candidate expectations and what hiring companies offer was interesting – and this shaped how we advise our clients on their recruitment processes and provide a better service to them.’’
Following on from this, Resource Solution’s advice and guidance is based on this data which its clients trust in. This is reflected in readers and judges selecting the company as this year’s deserved Gold Award winner.
The recruitment outsourcing solutions category is a competitive one, so what does Barr think helped his brand stand out in this category?
“At Resource Solutions, our offering spans all areas of recruitment, candidate management, and technology. We provide insight to our clients and help them innovate their recruitment activities with new technologies, while mitigating risk and improving hiring manager and candidate experience.”
But Barr and his colleagues are not resting on their laurels. They are spurred on for next year to getter bigger and better. “In 2020, we will continue to provide the best recruitment solutions to both our existing clients and new clients, and will be sharing more of our research-led thought leadership. We are proud to be on a continuous journey with our clients, candidates, corporate partners and employees to perpetuate a more diverse vision for the future.”
