The solutions we provided to address and improve these issues:
  • We met and registered each candidate to make sure they have a full understanding of the role. Explained our pre–screen, face to face and interview structure to ensure that candidates are better suited to the role
  • Completed a job shadow with the company, which enabled us to understand the working environment on a deeper level to thoroughly explain the job role to applicants, so they know what to expect in the role and what is expected of them within the role
  • We provided a bespoke video induction for the company to improve candidates knowledge and arrival process
  • We completed walk arounds so the candidate knows where they need to be and what they need to do on each shift
  • All candidates fully briefed of the job role and expectations before starting
