One thing we’ve all learnt during lock-down is we must be more flexible when it comes to work. The traditional office environment is (temporarily) on hold, and although we are starting to see renewed activity with many businesses returning to the workplace, social distancing still needs to be upheld to allow this to be done safely, meaning flexibility is still at the top of the agenda.
As we all adapt to the ‘new normal’ many businesses have experienced turbulent times of late changing the way we have to deal with our customers and suppliers. Whilst we all work out a solution for ourselves, now is the time to work together and help our fellow businesses come out on top as we gradually make it through to the other side.
At Multitask Personnel, we’re no different. Without our fantastic customers we wouldn’t be here, so we want to extend a helping hand wherever we can to help ease everyone back into the new way of working, and to protect those bottom lines.
We’ve always had a great relationship with our clients, built on trust and flexibility over the past 10 years. Now of all times, provides us with a great opportunity to give something back by offering a completely flexible solution on permanent recruitment fees to help our clients who need to recruit during these difficult times.
We’ve put some provisions in place to offer some flexibility with our fees for all permanent placements whilst the market starts to gain traction once again. Flexible packages of support have always been available to our clients depending on the level of service they require from us, but in addition to this we’re introducing a few other ways where we can help give our clients a bit more breathing space.
Multitask Personnel has always been set up to deal with volume roles for our clients, in particular via our support services division, where we can help our clients fill their office or warehouse support roles.
If your business needs to recruit several roles in specific departments, we are happy to offer a fixed fee service, agreed at the outset, for all volume recruitment requirements. This means our clients have the option to pay a fixed fee for all roles as part of their next recruitment drive, as well as individual fees per person.
Just let us know who you need to recruit, how many roles are available and we will be happy to help cast the net as wide as possible to attract the right type of person for your business.
Employee retention is a key driver for many business, and part of our service to our clients is making sure we are putting forward not only the best people for the job, but also the ones who are likely to stay in the job for many years to come. We want our clients to get as much value out of their employees as possible, as from our perspective, a happy client is a returning client.
We understand how difficult it can be at times to make sure you have got the right person in the role, so if you have a requirement for any white collar roles, our professional division is happy to offer a split fee structure which gives our clients the option to pay over a longer period of time whilst you are trying your new recruit out, so you can be 100% sure on your new recruit.
You may need to recruit quickly to ensure you have the right staffing levels to copy with demand post lock-down. Whilst this is a great position to be in as it means work is picking back up again, you need to make sure your recruitment process is still as stringent as it would normally be to avoid making any knee-jerk reactions.
A rebate period is a layer of added security to give you piece of mind that you have got the right person for your vacancy. Typically after a three month period you will know if your new recruit is right for the job or not, and if you’re not satisfied you have options to claw back some (or even all) of your recruitment fee.
To make sure you are recruiting the right people for your vacancies we are extending our rebate period for up to 6 months, meaning you can take your time with the onboarding process during busy periods, and giving you yet another opportunity to ‘try before you buy’.
Our recruitment processes have always been set up with our client’s best interests at heart. We want to make sure you can still achieve your recruitment goals as the UK business market starts to take off once again, in the most cost effective way as possible. Fixed fees, split fees and extended rebates (or even a combination of all three) are just a few ways we can reaffirm our commitment to our clients and provide the reassurances needed that your next recruitment drive need not be high risk, either in fees or staff turnover.
If we can do anything to help our clients with a more flexible recruitment solution during these unprecedented times, we will make it our aim to do so.
