There are a multitude of recruiters across the UK, each delivering varied quality and ethical standards – and having recently gone through a period whereby I thought the ‘grass was greener’ I’ve come to really value the dramatical differences that Stafforce has to offer as an employee with ambition.
1. Stafforce and its employees knows where they are going
Stafforce is a growing business with a £60M turnover and it knows where it is going and the journey it needs to take. As employees we have a common purpose, a shared vision and we’re all part of the culture… we work hard to achieve our goals but we also have a lot of good times and fun along the way.
Stafforce people are working together to achieve shared goals and objectives that are clearly set out in strategic and operational plans. Not all recruiters have a shared vision or strategic plan to get there but Stafforce definitely does and is always looking to improve the way that it does business to ensure that it is able to always deliver measurable success for both clients and candidates.
2. Stafforce is committed to developing its people
Stafforce is committed to investing in the development of its own people and has launched the Stafforce Academy to support this, which has seen many staff across the business – including me – being involved in a bespoke management development programme. Over 50 employees are also now on track to have completed our own “Licence to Operate” by the end of 2013, an accredited Level 3 Apprenticeship that makes sure we’re all up to scratch! This isn’t a course that ‘happens’ to our employees, everybody is involved in delivery and learning… meaning that the team is fully engaged with the Licence to Operate and as well as learning, everyone plays a part in its development for future learners.
We are given the best opportunity to achieve our career potential and are well equipped to help our candidates and clients achieve their potential and success.
3. Stafforce is always leading the way and improving
Other recruiters might say this, but It’s certainly true… Stafforce is way ahead of the game and improving the way that it does business… and it’s great to feel a part of that.
We’ve got great systems in place to ensure that management information is at our fingertips for reporting to clients and to offer clients the confidence that they sometimes need. Over the last couple of years I believe we’ve invested somewhere in the region of £350,000. This means that we as recruiters work smarter and by embracing technology we are able to support our clients’ reporting needs and ensure legislative rules and changes are managed in the right way.
We’re also supported in doing things cost effectively… i.e. not living in a car driving for hours up and down the motorway to see colleagues, but communicating more and more internally by webinar, conference call and picking up the phone to one another. This means that we’re a Lean business that can deliver a more focussed, efficient service for clients and candidates. Being a Lean organisation genuinely means that we are able to deliver a fantastic value added service to our clients more efficiently and effectively than our competitors.
Stafforce leads the way for an ethical, quality assured, honest service to all of our customers.
