Understanding company culture to find the right candidates
NRL’s Wigan recruitment team have been working as a sole supplier to Tenet Consultants Ltd for over ten years and in celebration of our successful partnership with the firm we put together a case study to highlight the challenges that the company have managed to overcome through implementing our recruitment solutions.
“NRL have been incredibly responsive to our requirements, being able to identify the most suitable candidates on the job market that fulfil the specification of the roles we have been looking to fill.”
-Aidan, Tenet Consultants Ltd
In 2005 Tenet Consultants Ltd approached NRL’s Wigan recruitment office as they were finding it difficult to source candidates with the right personality traits and work ethic to integrate into their already established design office team. Before utilising the recruitment services of NRL they had to rely on word of mouth recommendations or engage with other agencies on an ad-hoc basis to meet their recruitment needs. The recruitment process Tenet had in place was therefore not always adequate or responsive enough to meet the company’s job specifications on a priority basis which is what they required.
For each account we work on NRL appoint a dedicated Account Manager who will gain an understanding of your business processes through regular interaction with your team. Working in this way with the team at Tenet allowed us to work collaboratively, organising regular visits to their offices to gain a better understanding of their company culture. This enabled us to be more precise in identifying candidates that would integrate well with the existing engineering design team.
At NRL we operate a ‘culture fit’ policy through working closely with both our clients and candidates to ensure that their requirements and needs are aligned. This helped us immeasurably when working with Tenet as we were able to bring in people who shared their company values, aims and aspirations, helping them to build the engineering design team organically and sustainably with minimum impact to ongoing projects. As a result, Tenet now has an engineering design team that not only work collaboratively together but values the importance of communication and information exchange.
Working with NRL’s Wigan recruitment branch has enabled Tenet to streamline their recruitment process, allowing them to focus more time and effort on the core services they provide to deliver value to their clients.
NRL worked closely with Tenet to identify suitable candidates in the short time frame they had, forming a dedicated survey team to work on their client’s site. Putting this team in place enabled Tenet to provide a cost-effective solution to their client whilst also enabling key members of their engineering design office staff to return to their primary roles.
To ensure that introductions were only arranged for candidates who were of a strong fit for the business NRL screened and selected candidates to ensure that their skills sets and attributes were right for the available positions. This approach not only brought about cost savings for the company but also created a number of efficiencies in their recruitment process.
