Recruiting the best, establishing high levels of Engagement with employees and communities and Sustaining this commitment are becoming the fundamentals of good management. This is where A2O People can help utility and construction businesses to excel, providing a deeper and more diverse talent pool, supporting local communities, and unlocking the potential of your employees.
The benefits of our approach can be evidenced through:
Purpose & values driven approach: We believe that by focusing on the success of all stakeholders, and promoting a purpose beyond profit, employees are motivated by feeling connected to the mission of the business. Providing opportunities to “make a difference” in local communities aligns employees with a deeper meaning of the business purpose, and helps create a values driven culture.
Diversity and inclusiveness: A key differentiator is our ability to discover high-calibre people by proactively searching deeper into local communities, and helping candidates recognise how their skills match opportunities in industries they may not otherwise have considered. Our partnerships with not-for-profit organisations, our focus on establishing strong community networks, our targeted events to attract applicants not currently searching and our innovative referral system allow us to reach out to sections of the community that would otherwise remain untapped.
Community outreach: We provide opportunities for companies to make a positive difference in the communities in which they live and do business. This enhances employee engagement and places the business in a more favourable light with all of its stakeholders.
Aligning motives: A2O People are driven by the belief that the recruitment industry can serve its clients and society better. We take an approach that focuses on long-term engagement and staff retention. To ensure alignment with our clients best interests we motivate our team through non-financial rewards and establish targets that focus on customer service. We promote a culture of “giving back” through our referral and community outreach programmes. Our vision is to get businesses, employees and communities to work together, what we call “Together Making a Difference”.
Being the best, not necessarily the biggest: We have no aspirations to become the biggest company in our industry, but are passionate about being the best. By choosing to work with progressive clients, we are able to offer a truly bespoke, consultative service, offering an innovative long-term approach to resourcing and retention.
