Astra North’s Recruitment Process Outsourcing service involves the design set-up, management and integration of a fast, agile and adaptable centralised recruitment hub. It is fully focused on the client’s organizational strategy and creates the action plan for resource attraction, development, deployment and operational effectiveness.
We evaluate and streamline the clients staffing processes by conducting market analysis for labor costs and trends and integrating a workflow tool that supports the program from a process, compliance, financial and reporting perspective. We function as the client’s internal recruitment function and strategic partner and improve the client’s efficiency by leveraging our combination of strategy, technology, resources and vendor management.
This improves the quality of hire, speed of delivery and cost containment to increase recruitment efficiencies. Real-time metrics tied to strict service level agreements monitor and measure improvements. Consolidating and managing services provided by external suppliers and delivering process efficiencies further improves cost savings and accountability
Our experience has proven that cost-reduction and process-focus models have failed to integrate talent acquisition and management with the strategic imperatives for talent demanded by the business
Often the talent problems have continued to persist even when driving efficiency into previously ineffective models realized cost savings.
Hence while cost and process efficiencies are still a priority in Astra North’s iRPO Model, Astra North also focuses on leveraging talent as a competitive advantage.
RESOURCE MANAGEMENT MODEL
In the pursuit of talent management, Astra North does not merely address the cost and process efficiency issues. Astra North also does not approach the issue as a procurement exercise – consolidating suppliers, driving down costs, looking for process efficiencies and utilizing technology solutions, while squeezing much of the strategic value out of third-party relationships.
Astra North believes it is paramount to work in partnership with its client’s HR functions in closely managing and evaluating the entire human capital chain and through innovative strategies and tactics create value while simultaneously driving down cost.
Astra North is highly focussed on Talent Management Model which involves the integration of different talent management programs with the HR function to create a single, coherent system.
Astra North works in collaboration with its clients to set the talent agenda and then execute by integrating people, process and technology to drive competitive advantage through the appropriate talent solutions
