Solve the core issues, don’t just treat the symptoms…
As a successful and highly respected resourcing transformation business, Omni is regularly invited to support a wide variety of solutions driven projects to improve the way organisations resource for the better.
The issue is that, far too often, it quickly becomes apparent that the solutions proposed by the client do not address the core issues and are unlikely to achieve desired outcomes because of lack of engagement and due diligence during the solutions design stage – the missing link to successful resourcing!
The problems of the business simply becomes the problems of the chosen partners and the real issues end up falling in to the category of continual improvement to be delivered at additional cost over a longer period of time, or even worse, remain unaddressed!
“In our experience, the quickest, most cost effective and most successful solutions are those that are properly thought through from the outset. Those that benchmark current performance will engage the right people early and are clear on what success looks like from the very start. ”
Core resourcing issues show themselves in many ways but can normally be evidenced by one or any combination of the following;
▪ Poor quality of hires
▪ Over-reliance on recruitment agencies
▪ High attrition in the first 12 months
▪ It takes too long to attract & recruit the right staff
▪ Poor candidate experience & social media reviews
▪ The recruitment process is over burdensome on the hiring managers

The right solution for you can come in many different shapes and sizes, and the answer isn’t always outsourcing.

Like most Managing Directors, I have no desire to risk the hard-earned reputation of our business by making a quick buck from a service solution that is destined to fail, nor do we follow a strategy of let’s price to get in there first and introduce higher margin services later.
