Without doubt, providing an employer with an outstanding service in logistics recruitment calls for more than an extensive database. Bis Henderson, as leading recruitment consultants in the logistics and supply chain sector, accept that although their comprehensive index of candidates is important, the calibre of the relationship with these candidates is paramount.
Recruiters must take the time to get to know them well and to explore far more than the information given in a C.V. to ensure they are not simply a name on a list of dates and details held on a database. The Bis Henderson recruitment team has many collective years of employment within the field of logistics, with multi-level hands-on experience. Most of these consultants will have been registered on a recruitment database at some stage in their career and are able to fully appreciate the difference between a good and a poor recruitment consultancy.
Candidates will only remain loyal to recruiters who reflect the quality of the service they expect to receive throughout the entire logistics recruitment process from registration to placement. Bis Henderson also believe in the importance of understanding not only what difference the recruiters can make in a candidate’s career, but also what benefits there will be for the client. This is only possible when there has been in-depth candidate and client profiling, with an appreciation of common needs and expectations.
Logistics recruiters can gain a considerable advantage by spending time discussing the vacant role not only with the applicant, but also with the current workforce. This gives a clearer understanding of the dynamics of the operation and the corporate culture to confirm a good match. Employers must be able to rely on recruiters to identify and put forward the best talent, securing them ahead of competitors, while candidates need to feel that they are being treated as individuals and not simply as someone selected at random from a database.
Personal interaction is essential between recruiter, client and candidate as logistics recruitment is rarely a one-off transaction and Bis Henderson are very mindful that close rapport and a well established performance level will ensure there will be retained level of trust for assignment of future logistics jobs.
