Aligning talent with business goals is complex and necessary. Adaptive offers services across the talent supply chain. We draw on capability that can help you define your needs within the context of the market for that skill set.

Our consultants can work with you onsite or remotely. We leverage cloud based knowledge management technology to provide our clients with total process transparency in real time. All third party sourcing and assessment costs are passed across at cost plus a small admin fee (to cover credit costs).

internalInternal Recruitment

Adaptive can compliment your current recruitment capability with experienced recruiters working at your site or remotely. Additionally, we can use your recruitment technology or provide our own. This capability would reduce your reliance on recruitment agencies when your internal capability is stretched. Adaptive is also equipped to build capability through coaching your existing team or building a new function.

Adaptive offers most value to companies that could be described as:

  • New to town, need immediate capability
  • Current headcount does not justify permanent in-house capability
  • Won a project, need some recruitment firepower
  • Agency costs are difficult to justify
  • Current recruitment function does not meet business needs
  • Too much recruitment admin, need help

Our model is delivered at an hourly rate by very experienced associate consultants that work flexible hours on site with you or remotely, as circumstances dictate. We leverage cloud based knowledge management technology to provide our clients with total process transparency in real time.

HR - Running Hard

Recruitment technology is a minefield. Capability does not always equal practical, usable functionality. Expensive does not always mean best. We are up and live, what happens next? Who owns this thing, HR or IT? Why are my recruiters so unhappy with the system? Adaptive will draw on in-house knowledge and third party vendors to improve productivity and reduce costs via more effective technology management.

Adaptive's principal has spent almost 10 years deeply involved in recruitment technology in the UK, US and Australia. He is constantly reminded how wide the gap is between vendor messaging and practical, usable client capability. In today's world recruitment technology is no longer only relevant for the large multinationals, SME market can also access excellent capability for a reasonable price.

Technology has moved beyond applicant tracking and career sites. CRM has been brilliantly applied to talent sourcing led by vendors such as Avature and Zoho. This allows companies to move into the realm of passive candidate and talent mapping, enabling a more proactive recruitment strategy.

Typical technology engagements:

  • Acquiring an applicant tracking system
  • Getting the best out of what you have got
  • CRM Vs ATS Vs VMS
  • Implementation Support
  • SLA Management
  • Database management and user support
