Overcoming challenges- a case study
Impact recruitment works with a wide variety of excellent companies on a range of recruitment needs. Our consultants pride themselves on building long-term relationships, focussing on really understanding the unique needs of our clients and providing innovative recruitment strategies tailored to those requirements.
To show how we could benefit your business, take a look at our case study below to find out how we helped source the right people to match our clients' requirements and overcome their recruitment challenge.
Company/Sector: Warehouse and logistics, FTSE 250 company
Duration of supply: Since 2002
Supply type: Initially branch supply with a dedicated in-branch account manager, later developing into supplying an onsite team who work alongside our client’s management team.
Types of roles: Warehouse operatives, forklift drivers, trainers
Client issue: Due to a huge peak in business, our client required a vast number of people onsite who required training and signing off internally on MHE, for insurance purposes. Despite temporarily giving alternative manual duties to some staff, to help utilise the bottleneck of people waiting for sign-off, there was concern that this would cause retention issues, as candidates were delayed getting on their preferred job role ‘on the trucks’.
Our tailored solution and results: Impact took on our own trainer who provided all the necessary training, testing and assessing onsite to efficiently onboard our candidates. In between training the new temporary staff, our trainer carried out refresher training with the permanent team, allowing supervisors and manager’s time to further improve efficiencies. Due to added capacity for onboarding, Impact could continue quickly filling the vacancies needed to deal with the client’s peak trading period. Impact’s trainer soon became a permanent member of our client’s team and they achieved their most successful peak to date.
Whatever challenges we face, we work to Impact’s core values on every single project for our clients. We have the long-standing clients, many testimonials and case studies to prove it. You can trust our team to work with integrity and respect, delivering innovative solutions in partnership with your company too. So, no matter what recruitment issues you are facing right now, speak to us- for information, advice, ideas or to add to your team. We enjoy a new challenge and would love the opportunity to help you to strengthen your business.
