When hiring an agency worker, one of the most neglected aspects is onboarding – the process of integrating a new employee into your business. According to a report by HROnboard, an HR consultancy firm, businesses spend approximately £200 to onboard a new recruit to employee level, in addition to their normal recruitment expenses. Why is...
I’ve worked with Premier Placement Services for 12 years in temporary industrial and driving roles, and have built up a great rapport with the team. I like the fact that they don’t treat you like a number, instead they treat you as an individual and with respect. I’ve been offered a number of full time roles over the years for clients that I’ve worked with on a long term basis, but for me I like the variety that temporary work brings and I get to meet some great characters along the way.
When my husband semi-retired and I took voluntary redundancy four years ago, I made the decision to semi-retire myself and spend as much time as I could with my husband enjoying our narrowboat. I registered with Premier Placement Services to see if they could find me administrative work during specific times when I knew I would be available and it’s the best thing I ever did. As well as finding me work when I want it, they proactively call me on a regular basis to let me know about jobs that they think would suit me – they have even offered me part-time permanent jobs. I genuinely feel valued and I get to work when I want to. I have great flexibility and have always enjoyed the placements that I’ve been offered which can be for just one-day, weekly or long term for six-months plus.
I’m originally from Stoke but moved to live in Cornwall for a number of years before returning back home in 2003. When I moved back I saw Premier Placement Services and thought that it would be a good idea to register with them to get some work until I decided what I was going to do for a job. I have now been working with Premier Placement Services for 12 years in various driving roles and find the team very friendly and always willing to work with me to suit me needs. Wages are always paid on time and any issues are resolved immediately. As I’m approaching my 60th birthday, I’ve recently reduced my hours and Premier Placement Services have been more than happy to offer flexible working patterns and have even said that if driving becomes less attractive to me as I get older, alternative work will be available too. I really enjoy the flexibility that agency work provides and it means that I can work when I want to and take holidays when I want to!
Eaton Williams and myself personally, have worked with Premier Placement Services since 1996 and have selected them as our first choice for all our temporary recruitment needs. Initially we worked with two-three different agencies but based on the excellent service they have provided from day one we now only use Premier Placement Services. They always send us reliable, experienced staff and the level of ongoing customer service we receive from Jonathan and his team is exemplary. Any issues are resolved immediately and we can count on the team to ensure that we have a workforce ready for deployment as and when we need it. They provide a professional service that rivals any other recruitment agency we’ve used before and we have great confidence in the team and their candidates.
We’ve been working with Premier Placement Services since 1996 and receive a great service from them. They understand our needs and don’t just provide us with ‘bums on seats’! We can rely on them to provide ready-tested drivers who hold all the relevant paperwork and qualifications to do the job. We require a range of different drivers and can be confident that the team at Premier Placement Services adhere to the strictest driver legislation required in our industry. Sean and Tim have become part of our team and we can count on them to provide a fast, efficient and professional service.
We’ve been using Premier Placement Services to source temporary packers and fryers at our factory since 2007 and have developed an ongoing, positive relationship based on reliability and trust. We can require people on a daily or weekly basis and sometimes at very short notice if we have unexpected absenteeism. Our business is seasonal too and they are always prepared for our busier times when they know we will require extra support. The fact that Premier Placement Services can transport agency staff to our factory in their own mini buses is a real advantage for us ensuring everyone arrives together, at the same time. In addition, we know that their candidates will have had the basic food hygiene and health and safety training before reaching us too. Thanks to the fast and friendly support we get from them, we are able to keep our production on schedule.
