Recruitment and Human Capital businesses vary widely but often have similar challenges and opportunities. In many cases they serve corporate clients with specific and demanding procurement rules. They may provide outsource services with complex process, system and integration challenges. They may have large numbers of subcontract or freelance staff which creates its own management issues.
Security and confidentiality is often a pervasive risk and it must be addressed in a commercial and sensible way. This is especially difficult if staff are remote or not directly employed, and people throughout the business need to securely collaborate, access client and other information easily and without a fuss.
Many companies in this sector have built up unusual skills and IP, and it may be possible to capitalise on these asset and differentiate themselves from the competition by creating custom-software. Custom software offers a wealth of opportunity but is very difficult to get right and can become an increasing drain on resources and management time if there is no Board-level tech leader.
We work with many Recruitment and Human Capital companies to achieve their ambitions. We address this range of issues including efficiency, security and bespoke software. We are, ourselves, a Human Capital business and fully understand the issues.
