A1 Personnel and Anton Group have developed a successful working partnership that began in 2007 when A1 Personnel were given the opportunity to work as a back up supplier to the incumbent agency. Anton Group had trialled many agencies over the years but had never found any that could cope with high volume demands at short notice, comply with additional pre-screening of workers and offer a cost effective recruitment model.
Anton Group utilises a temporary workforce of between 50-150 workers per day and the incumbent agency had problems with supplying 100% of requirements at peak. As one of the largest independant printers and print finsihers in the UK it was vital that Anton Group operated at full headcount to meet client SLAs
After sporadic supply A1 Personnel took over full supply of staffing requirements in 2010. This opportunity arose as A1 Personnel were able to guarantee payment to temporary workers due to our strong financial position. A1 Personnel had demonstrated a more consistent level of service and lower attrition across our workforce. Seeing that the additional service that was provided by A1 Personnel was able to offer substantial cost savings to Anton Group we were awarded sole supply status in 2010.
A1 Personnel has been successfully supplying 100% of the Anton Group temporary workforce for over 2 years. Our service model has evolved to fit the needs of Anton Group’s business and ensure maximum cost savings and productivity from the workforce. The service now consists of:
Applicant pool of 200 workers to allow for daily flexing of staffing numbers
Full security checks are completed to include credit checks and CRB
Dedicated team of Consultants are on call 24/7 to deal with staffing issues or changes to requirements
Onsite presence from A1 Personnel Consultants to help with inductions, training and performance management.
Reduced attrition of workforce due to effective management of temporaries
