Flogas are a leading LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) supplier with more than 30 years’ experience providing reliable, affordable energy solutions to domestic customers across the UK. Founded in 1984, it has evolved to
become one of Europe’s leading LPG suppliers, with a presence in Britain, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Strategic challenges & objectives

Flogas wanted to work with a partner that could help develop its employer brand in the marketplace, positioning itself as an employer of choice within its industry. Growth within the organisation had previously been supported through a supply chain of recruitment agencies, diluting its employer brand, offering a varying candidate experience and attracting substantial costs. Flogas wanted to reduce this reliance on agencies by improving its ability to hire directly across the UK; engaging with both active and passive candidates across key job families including corporate functions, customer services and blue collar (field based) driving and technical roles.

Solution and outcomes​

​To help Flogas achieve its objectives, Omni’s RPO team worked extensively with the business during the implementation process to understand hiring manager requirements and develop a streamlined recruitment and selection process that had the candidate experience at the centre. This was underpinned by the introduction of our proprietary ATS system ‘Appellia’ providing the business with full visibility of the hiring and onboarding process for the first time. By integrating our team with the internal HR function at Flogas, we were able to add value quickly reducing agency reliance (71% to <30% in first 6 months) by developing a dedicated Flogas talent pipeline with costs savings in excess of £300k in the first year of the contract.
