How embedded recruitment can help smartly scale your business
If you’ve seen the headlines about the UK’s uncertain economic climate and the encroaching ‘slowdown’, you might be second guessing your business’ scaling plan. But a ‘slowdown’ doesn’t necessarily mean your business needs to stop growing. Whilst the latest Financial Stability Report from the Bank of England has described the outlook for the UK economy as ‘very uncertain’, these times of uncertainty are what divide the unseasoned from the savvy in talent acquisition.
In fact, businesses can and should embrace growth in times of uncertainty as long as that growth is pursued as part of a smart hiring solution with the right experience and expertise. Entrepreneur’s Report notes that ‘the UK’s most ambitious start-ups and scaleups seem to be faring well against macroeconomic headwinds so far’, whilst Claudia Green, founder of Scaling Up, told Tech Funding News that ‘investments are still happening across Europe, and companies who have the cash still need to build and continuously improve their products’, concluding that, ‘founders are realising the need to hire smarter’.
So, how can you continue volume hiring through the slowdown without exposing your business to unnecessary risk? That’s where Troi comes in. As an embedded talent partner on a monthly subscription, we offer a scalable embedded hiring model providing your company with your own tailor-made, in-house talent acquisition team to help you hire at scale and retain talent for longer. How does that enable smart business growth? Let’s find out.
We have the experience to sail through uncertainty
With over five years of experience delivering subscription-based recruitment, Troi is a pioneer of the scalable embedded recruitment model. The last few years have been filled with uncertainty, yet we’ve sailed through the pandemic with our clients emerging stronger than ever through our unique hiring solution. This is in no small part due to our experienced team members. When you work with us, we provide you with your own expert team of talent acquisition specialists, consisting of a Recruiter, Team Leader and Customer Success Manager who are there to provide a complete strategic recruitment service.
We use our connections to tap into talent pools beyond our clients’ reach, specialising in Tech and GTM/Commercial roles. Our team of 50+ consultants are all at a senior or exec level in experience, with an average of 8-10 years in either tech or commercial recruiting for some of the most well-known companies across FinTech, MedTech, Retail, Gaming and SaaS.
Our volume hiring clients have included a wide range of businesses from enterprise industry giants, such as Holland & Barrett (for whom we provided a £2.1m annual recruitment saving), to start-ups and scale-ups.
To date, we’ve helped over 150 companies deliver on their growth targets, generating on average over 150 hires a month and saving our clients a total of £11m compared with traditional hiring fees so far.
Our service is flexible with a monthly subscription
In times of uncertainty, flexibility is key. Instead of paying per hire, you simply subscribe to our hiring service with a monthly flat fee. With this unique model, Troi helps you plan for the future of your business and avoid any unexpected costs in scaling. We even have flexible solutions for businesses of different sizes and with different goals, allowing our clients to save thousands per placement compared with typical hiring agency costs. Troi’s flexible recruitment model is designed to help your business weather the uncertainty of the current times, with a standard monthly package which can be upgraded and expanded as your business matures.
We give you the ability to hire at scale with fast embedding
Another key factor in surviving uncertainty is to be able to move quickly and effectively with the times. Unlike a traditional recruitment agency, Troi fully integrates with your team and becomes embedded as part of your business’ culture. With our embedded recruitment model, we operate within your business and provide a full-service hiring solution. This means that we can move quickly, speeding up the average recruitment process from 2+ months to 10 days. What’s more, we can offer access to exceptional talent for specific projects, interim cover and flexible roles, without the need for lengthy onboarding processes when time is tight. We tailor our embedded services to your business, whether that means building first-time teams for start-ups or working alongside existing talent teams at enterprises.
We take ownership of the full end-to-end hiring process
Troi takes care of every stage of the hiring process, so you can focus on running and growing your business. When we source talent for you, we want to ensure that we find you the right fit who will grow with your business. That’s why our embedded hiring service includes employer branding, process design, DE&I and inbound and outbound strategy, creating a seamless experience for both you and your candidates.
On top of the expertise offered by our team members, we have a full suite of tools and systems which our clients can use at no extra cost to help you keep track of the present and plan for the future. For start-ups, we offer expertise and help you build up your first teams, whilst we act as a ‘plug in and play’ hiring partner for our enterprise clients, freeing up capacity for teams to grow without the high costs of recruitment agencies or in-house talent teams.
No matter what the coming months hold in terms of economics, our embedded recruitment model ensures that we’re in it with our clients through the peaks and the troughs, helping to smooth out the edges and avoid any unexpected waves. Offering you the upmost flexibility in talent acquisition and providing a complete strategic solution – not just your hires.
