The Eploy team were delighted that Mencap, one of its customers, was crowned as winner in the CIPD People Management Awards 2017 for Best Recruitment and Talent Management initiative.
It’s yet another award for Mencap who have been instrumental in understanding and changing key recruitment process challenges. They fought off strong competition in this award category from Unilever, Department for Work and Pensions, Odeon Cinemas Group, Virgin Trains East Coast and Worcestershire County Council.
The Royal Mencap Society rethought its entire recruitment model, based on a framework that puts values and behaviours at its core. The model addresses all areas of hiring and talent management, specifically attraction and selection, and encourages focused and cost-effective marketing of roles – particularly care positions, where the skills of support workers are better matched to the needs of the client.
On winning the award, Rob Walker, Head of Resourcing, Mencap said “Our team have demonstrated a deep understanding of the needs of both clients and hiring managers, with a principles-led approach that was truly focused on the end user. The results have transformed our recruiting capability and Eploy helped us to maximise our capacity.”
The CIPD People Management Awards recognise HR and people development practices to showcase achievements of those making a tangible difference – to employees, to communities, to organisational effectiveness and to the bottom line.
