RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing)
Insource or Outsource? Post conducting a recruitment audit, OCG is able to advise on the best structure to support your business going forward.
Research has proven that independent exit interviews ensure the information you collect is thorough and valid. The feedback collected through these provides useful information which can be used in improving your employment brand.
Post completing a Recruitment Audit, OCG is able to build your Talent Attraction and Retention Plan which supports your business strategy. Ideally suited to companies with stretched HR who are seeking support in building a plan they can implement.
Developing a Talent Attraction and Retention Plan
Wanting objective assessment of internal candidates so the selection process is rigorous and fair? We can interview your staff and provide an objective report clearly highlighting competency matches and/or gaps. This can be further complemented by Psychological Assessment with feedback linked to your role and competencies.
Need an objective overview of where your costs sit? Need to identify what the real issues are with your current recruitment process? A Recruitment Audit involves OCG spending time with all hiring managers where we focus on the whole business or business critical areas. The outcome is a project based, customised service and report you can take to build your own recruitment strategy. Employment Branding
An organisation with a superior employer brand is one where the value proposition that the business articulates, is reflected by the actions of all people, at all levels of the business, at all times. At OCG we believe that employer brand management doesn't replace anything you're doing well already - it just brings it all together to greater effect. The OCG employer branding process makes use of marketing techniques to create powerful positive expectations among possible recruits and existing employees. We see employer branding is a whole of business, long-term strategy for the attraction, engagement and retention of talent. OCG is able to offer a range of services to assist you with your journey to becoming 'an employer of choice'.
