Following a relaunch in 2016, fashion chain, Purdy was to continue its operations as an independent brand and faced its biggest challenge yet: transforming 22 individual stores into a single successful brand and team.
With the help of HROffice Connect, Purdey was able to make huge efficiency gains: advertising job vacancies took 57% less time and the recruitment process became 31% faster. An increase in the quality of candidates and improved intake resulted in the need for fewer job interviews, with the Cost Per Hire at Purdey falling to just 454 Euros.
"Thanks to HROffice Connect, the headcount in our HR department has fallen by 40%" - Michiel de Rooij, COO & ICT Purdey.
The transition from paper to paperless has also contributed towards an optimal candidate journey. Managing the entire HR- and recruitment process from a single dashboard with the simple click of a mouse, Purdey introduced its new employees to a world of operational excellence: from recruitment & selection and employment contracts to time sheets and remuneration, new employees were involved in this success story from day 1.
