We love a good celebration here at Basis and its safe to say that the In-house Recruitment Awards last Wednesday didn’t disappoint!
Basis and our client Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, joined 700 other attendees at the Westminster Park Plaza for the annual shindig! Fine food, entertainment and like- minded people all joined together to celebrate the finalists in each category and of the course, the winners who came out on top!
We’re delighted to say that together with our client, we were one of those very deserving winners, having developed the entire candidate experience for Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, including their award winning onboarding solution.
The deployment of the onboarding system has been a vital part of the engagement strategy for the Trust. From appointment onwards, new hires are informed motivated, engaged and passionate about their new role and ultimately, better prepared for day one.
The system has taken the pressure off the recruitment team to tackle wider resourcing challenges, reduced pre-employment checking times from 90 minutes to 20 minutes per starter and has taken the Trust away from a stack of paper forms, to a completely online process. It’s changed the lives of the people who work within the resourcing team by streamlining their processes and has vastly improved their time to hire, allowing them to get staff into the Trust within days, not weeks!
This is great recognition for the Trust who have worked incredibly hard to make their candidate and new starter experience, quite literally, award winning!
It also comes at a great time for Basis, who are set to launch their newest addition to the onboarding family in early 2018
