ResourceBank has launched a new bespoke employee on-boarding portal for its long-standing RPO client Northgate plc. The secure web portal gives new Northgate employees direct access to everything they need to read and complete during the on-boarding process. The responsive portal is accessible through mobile devices and tablets, as well as desktop PCs and its implementation will significantly speed-up the time it takes to complete and return documentation. In addition, the use of the portal rather than printed documentation is set to reduce ResourceBank’s use of paper by approximately 50,000 sheets every year.
The portal has been developed by ResourceBank, with close support from Northgate’s HR team, using the leading Avature ATS/CRM system as the platform. Melody Hermon, client development director for ResourceBank said “Innovation is one of our five key values and we are consistently looking for new technology solutions in order to improve the RPO services that we provide. The on-boarding portal simplifies and speeds up the offer to start process and will enable us to get new employees into jobs more efficiently and quicker than before – providing Northgate with a more responsive and competitive hiring service.”
Marc Bertrand, HR Director of Northgate said “We very pleased with the new portal as it provides a great first impression to our new employees – demonstrating that Northgate is at the forefront of using innovative HR solutions. It allows us to easily track the progress of new employees as they join the business to make sure their on-boarding is as smooth and as stress free as possible.”
With more than 75 branches and 60,000 vehicles throughout the UK, Northgate is the UK’s most successful and fastest growing commercial vehicle rental company. Northgate first outsourced its recruitment to ResourceBank in 2011 and the RPO delivers fast and effective recruitment of more than 500 staff every year.
