The annual awards by The Global Recruiter magazine celebrate the brightest and best in recruitment across the UK. The judging panel is made up of some of the leading lights in the industry, including representatives from the REC, APSCo and The Recruitment Network.
Outsourcing recruitment requires a special relationship between the recruiter and the client. The award for Best Recruitment Process Outsourcing Business recognises the value-adding relationships that enable clients to gain the best talent in the most effective and efficient way. The judging panel scrutinise each nomination, looking for how businesses have adapted their service during the pandemic, the implementation of efficient processes to ensure seamless recruitment and on-boarding and the overall impact of the RPO solution from a talent supply point of view.
The background to RPOne
With 50-years’ experience helping clients around the world to navigate their recruitment challenges, in 2021 we launched RPOne – a transformation of the traditional RPO model, offering a more agile, custom-fit solution to organisations that wish to make their talent ambitions a reality and gain a competitive edge within their industry.
RPOne is a response to the conditions many industries have endured as a result of COVID-19. Many businesses have been left looking for an outsourced recruitment partner that could offer a high touch service and seamlessly drop into their organisation. However, with RPO offerings being a one-size-fits-all approach, most found there wasn’t a solution that could suit the changes they’d had to make to their business because of the pandemic.
Having been recognised as the leader in Managed Service Provision for decades, we were keen to push our proposition further by bringing our extensive RPO experience to the fore. And so, 2021 quite naturally became the right time for us to launch an official offering to the market.
With RPOne, we’ve developed a suite of products and services which are brought together into one enormous offering, which we wrap around our customers. They’re not just equipped with our anecdotal expertise; they have a shopping list of ‘plug in’ extras to adapt, expand and improve their service from us, on-demand.
With packages available for start-ups through to enterprise organisations, RPOne is designed to be more effective than anything else currently on the market and can be adapted to suit organisations of all sorts and sizes, scaling alongside businesses at their pace and ensuring they’re prepared for the next phase in their journey.
Nurturing recruiter-client relationships
As well as providing our clients with a transformative recruitment solution, we’re using RPOne to turn around misconceptions that RPOs can never truly be fit for purpose, because there are several Morson clients that have seen their business benefit exponentially from the fundamentals of RPOne for years – including one of the world’s most iconic brands, Manchester United.
The complexity of Manchester United’s business model and the sheer scale of its operations requires it to be best-in-class both on and off the pitch. Its mantra is to attract, develop and retain a best-in-class workforce that sits behind the scenes and sets the club apart from its competition. To achieve this, our RPO delivery arm focuses on developing the club’s employer brand, creating streamlined candidate journeys, evolving ED&I agendas and developing behavioural frameworks, all whilst delivering the plethora of diverse skills that the business requires.
In the two-and-a-half years that we’ve been part of Manchester United, we’ve recruited physios, software programmers, coaches, partnership leads, social media specialists, goalkeeping scouts, football analysts, fundraising executives and groundsmen. We’ve even recruited two seat fixers to maintain the 75,000 seats within Old Trafford.
Understanding the nuances of a client’s business is critical to our success. From day one of working together, our mission is to build mutually beneficial relationships across the entire organisation – not just with HR business partners and hiring managers – to understand how these unique puzzle pieces come together. Hiring managers come to us with every role – not just those in more technical areas – which is testament to the trust and autonomy of our relationship, and the time we invest in getting under the skin of their industry.
The Global Recruiter UK Industry Awards ceremony will be held in the afternoon of October 14th 2021 at East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf, where the winners for Best Recruitment Process Outsourcing Business will be formally announced.
