RECRUITMENT PROCESS OUTSOURCING (RPO)
Seconded teams of Afrizan recruiters are deployed to site, forming in-house agencies, marrying agency expertise with onsite knowledge.
Engaging Afrizan means that you can turn to a single partner for all talent acquisition requirements: workforce planning, talent mapping, hiring processes, reporting, and on-boarding. The result is a consistent, high-touch approach customised to your culture, industry, and geographical footprint.
We have found Afrizan’s services to be very professional and responsive. They go at length to understand the company’s culture and challenges in order to ensure that they match the candidate to the company.
Their consultants are customer-oriented and flexible in their dealing with us. Afrizan brings industry expertise to the relationship. This was demonstrated to us when they ran the RPO project. We had a recruitment backlog and needed to apoint people urgently. They were able to assist us to fast track this process and fill the roles within the agreed timelines.
They currently manage our internal recruitment and have brought value to our relationship as well as objectivity to Masana’s recruitment process.
We value Afrizan’s strategic partnership with us.
This Letter serves to confirm that Afrizan is providing staffing service to the MultiChoice Contact Centre.
We are happy with the relationship in that we find them proactive, focusing on value-adds, and caring about their people.
This letter serves to advise that since we have introduced Afrizan into our Temp Resourcing pool, we have not only received great and professional service. We have also seen their competitors stepping up their service and using Afrizan as a benchmark.
Our line-partners have been giving great and positive feedback and commending our move of bringing Afrizan onboard.
“Thank you for making this a great year for resourcing at Liberty. We not only managed a successful integration of the Afrizan team into Liberty, but also managed to improve service delivery and earn a spot as a valued business partner in sourcing talent into the Group.
While the contractual relationship is still young, and there are opportunities to improve further, we must acknowledge the successes and value add that you have brought our business – and for this I extend my sincere gratitude for a positive approach towards delivering resourcing services at a client site where your experience has sometimes been very challenging.
The attitudes and approach of the Afrizan team have been great, and it has been a pleasure working with each of you. The Afrizan management team certainly have much to be proud of.”
“The experience of Afrizan has really changed my mind-set regarding the quality of work expected from recruitment service providers. Prior to their appointment at Stanlib, we had to deal with sub-standard delivery, but I will not go into all that now.
The staff from Afrizan has a unique combination of education knowledge and interpersonal skills to understand our unique client needs. They take time to discuss the job specs and the unique requirements for each position rather than “pushing candidates that closely meet the job spec”. They take the time analyse the individual requirements of each manager, involving complex projects, systems in order to source the correct talent of people and team fit.
It is important for Stanlib to invest in and keep talented people. The various niche requirements often needs to be secured outside of the region, as expertise and talent pool may be needed to be sourced from other provinces. They have done an excellent job at doing this.
Please accept this endorsement and statement of support for a quality service offering done by Afrizan. They continue to demonstrate their dedication and commitment to our company, by consistent delivery and place staff on-site who understand our business needs. They are not merely service providers, but have become part of family.
Their dedication and commitment is truly representative of their tremendous ability, professionalism, and work ethic. They have changed my perception of recruitment service providers.
PPS Introduced Afrizan’s Tespro RPO Model in October 2013. This Model has proven to be a very successful recruitment experience and has provided us with the experienced resources needed to ensure a highly efficient recruitment service to our internal stakeholders.
Not only does this model assist in our immediate recruitment needs, the relationship with Afrizan has evolved into a long-term strategic partnership. The service provided has been professional and efficient and has resulted in much positive feedback from the business. Afrizan has helped us to “raise the bar” in terms of our recruitment offering. They are also proactive in their approach and have done a great job in sourcing high calibre candidates for us that match each unique need we have. Their service remains consistent, despite at times being placed under enormous pressure to deliver.”
The services offered by Afrizan are of an excellent standard. We hope to continue our strong working relationship with Afrizan and have no reservation in recommending them to any organization requiring staff.
Afrizan has been a preferred supplier of SABS (Pty) Ltd since 23 October 2001. Most valuable assistance has been delivered within our Finance Department. We can highly recommend them for their professionalism and timeously delivery.
Due to a good business relationship with consultants, they understand our business needs and have dealt with all our recruitment requirements. I would recommend their services to any corporate business.
