James Kenealey awards
Morson is excited to be shortlisted in the 2021 FIRM Awards in the category of Best Supplier Partnership!
Established in 2013, the FIRM Awards celebrate the brightest and best of in-house recruitment excellence, best practice and innovation. They provide an opportunity to celebrate and recognise achievements across the industry.
Morson is shortlisted for its supplier partnership with Atlas Elektronik UK (AEUK). Based in Dorset, AEUK is a defence and maritime high-technology enterprise, with an excellent reputation, particularly as a supplier of sonar systems.
Our submission highlighted the integrated partnership with AEUK. From the very onset of the relationship, Atlas was supplied a dedicated Account Manager who works on-site, in Dorset, acting as an in-house hiring manager but with the requisite duties of an external supplier.
Prior to working with Morson, AEUK’s total time to hire from the interview stage was extended, impacting its hiring success. Following Morson’s appointment, systems were implemented that automate several elements of the process; today, Atlas simply approves a role requirement before handing the entire process to Morson. AEUK’s Account Manager briefs relevant, specialist teams about the role and niche skillsets required, after which the Morson team feedback with suitable candidates.
In doing so, Morson has developed a true picture of the business, meaning the entire hiring process has become more efficient and tailored to Atlas’ needs. For example, a bespoke ATS system has been put in place to manage the entire recruitment journey from CV submission through to interview, negotiation and onboarding, acting as a one-stop-shop for Atlas’ entire recruitment process and talent strategy.
A set of formal KPIs and SLAs have been implemented to ensure that the business’ recruitment needs are met but also shape how the partnership between AEUK and Morson can become even more honed, to create ongoing improvements.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, with AEUK a key manufacturer in several essential industries, it was business as usual except for a number of small changes to ensure Atlas could continue to recruit in a safe and socially distanced manner. Morson implemented remote interview technologies and online hiring practices, which achieved the same levels of efficiency as previous, face to face processes.
Morson Talent is one of the largest and most respected names in recruitment and talent solutions. Focusing on excellence for employees, candidates, contractors and clients, Morson operates from 50+ global locations, has 10,000+ contractors working on-site, processes 700,000+ timesheets a year and deliver c.20million people hours to client projects.
