Specialist construction and civil engineering supplier chooses Datum RPO to provide its complete recruitment solutions
A three-year total recruitment solutions contract with construction and civil engineering group Britannia valued at £3m has helped Datum RPO to make 2015 a record-breaking year.
The deal with Britannia follows a string of blue chip wins for Datum including VINCI PLC and Norland Managed Services (CBRE).
Datum was awarded the contract with Britannia following a thorough evaluation procedure that included implementing a recruitment process that was both robust and streamlined, as well as ensured legal compliance and the use of highly cost-effective resourcing methods. Worth approximately £1m per annum, the outsourcing solution involves Datum RPO managing Britannia’s suppliers of permanent and temporary resource on a vendor neutral basis.
Britannia has provided fast-track, innovative and sustainable delivery solutions for over 50-years across the retail, commercial, industrial, leisure and infrastructure sectors and has its head office in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
“Britannia Construction required a solution to effectively manage its engagement of temporary resource needs, for which Datum proposed a process that not only minimised risk, but delivered long-term value to the business,” explains Datum RPO Managing Director Raymond Pugh. “We’re seeing a significant increase in organisations wanting to address the issues surrounding their temporary resource requirements but without understanding how to go about it. Companies are looking for partners who are ahead-of-the-game in providing solutions and who can also give impartial advice. Understanding our clients’ business model and their goals is part of our DNA and a key reason for our success.”
“Managing recruitment effectively is a consistent demand within our business and has been a challenge for a number of years,” says Kevin Harris, Head of Business Services for Britannia Construction. “With an ever increasing burden of legislative compliance surrounding our temporary resource engagement process and a growing shortage of candidates, we knew we required a more effective management solution. This is why we decided to outsource the controlling of our temporary resource management to professionals who have a proven-track-record and clear understanding of our business. We believe that Datum is the right fit for this and will deliver exactly what we need.”
Datum RPO provides fully outsourced solutions to better manage permanent and temporary agency labour. As experts in its field, it offers a cost-effective and efficient process that tailors for each client’s requirements. The benefits of Datum’s solution include reduced administration, legislative compliance, taking care of management information, consolidated invoicing, improved supplier engagement and the ability to challenge the ineffective use of temporary and contract labour.
