Recruitment Effectiveness 
Assessment (REA)

The ultimate health check for your recruitment function...

Omni's Recruitment Effectiveness Assessment (REA) will help you transform your recruitment strategy into a truly best practice function.

The REA provides a unique, but proven, methodology to audit, assess and benchmark the effectiveness of a resourcing function and develop 'next step' improvement plans. 

The objective of the assessment is to provide leaders within the in-house recruitment sector with both a strategic and practical analysis to build a high-performing, specialist recruitment function that can support an organisation’s ability to source, select and secure the talent it needs to achieve its business objectives. 

Omni have designed a maturity model that identifies and details 4 clear stages of recruitment best practice and uses this to benchmark corporate recruitment activities.   Each stage has its own set of key activities and performance measures and follows with a subsequent ‘Recruitment Maturity Matrix’ that breaks recruitment activities down into 10 core areas, or ‘elements’:

  • Strategy – Is there a companywide recruitment strategy in place? Is this aligned to the business strategy?

  • Recruitment Responsibility – are responsibilities for recruitment optimally defined across the organisation?

  • Process Management – are processes well defined, efficient and consistently used?

  • Systems – is the recruitment process effectively supported by technology?

  • Information management – is information on recruitment activity and performance captured and used effectively?

  • Performance Management – do you have recruitment KPI’s aligned to the recruitment strategy?

  • Candidate sourcing – are the best candidates being sourced in the most effective way? Are you accessing the full talent pool?

  • Supplier Management – how do you performance manage your current suppliers to ensure they provide the best candidates in the quickest possible time for the least cost?

  • Assessment and Selection – do your assessment and selection processes optimise candidate experience and run efficiently? Are the best candidates selected from the process?

  • Customer Service – are hiring managers and candidates delighted by the their journey? What tools are in place to monitor customer satisfaction?

Following the REA, a detailed analysis and report illustrating the health of your recruitment strategy is provided and accompanied by next-step improvement plans for you to achieve optimal effectiveness.
