For this award, PeopleScout demonstrated their innovative talent solutions across the full spectrum of talent management with expertise in all disciplines, skill levels and geographies, whilst delivering high end-user satisfaction ratings. 

“Since partnering with PeopleScout, we’ve seen consistent improvement in the marketing of our brand to potential employees, increased productivity through process improvement and the introduction of new tools and technology, as well as a reduction in vacant roles. We’re looking to build on our successful partnership with PeopleScout by introducing new technology solutions aimed at objectively identifying the best available talent to join our business and maintain our position as a market leader,” said OMD People & Development Director, Martin Cowie.

Integrating an experienced recruitment team with media and digital marketing expertise allowed for a smooth transition for the RPO function and the client and established a conversion benchmark above 82% of roles briefed versus placements.
