Contingent workforce

Training at home

There is a shortage of certain key skills and an urgent need to re-purpose existing capabilities to meet new challenges. Our contingent and other sourcing solutions can solve immediate continuity or scale shortages.

Many companies have recently hired or continue to hire during this time. Some are being asked to repurpose manufacturing capability to produce products that are in short supply.

Getting staff into certain key roles quickly and making sure your new people are productive from day one is more important than ever.

Screening and onboarding

Now, more than ever, background screening and onboarding is a real business challenge.

Especially for organisations who need to screen, equip and motivate new starters at scale, speed, and with a degree of thoroughness that today’s stretched HR departments would be hard-pressed to deliver. But at Capita, we have an effective solution that meets these needs faster and more cost effectively than traditional, manual screening and onboarding processes.

Capita’s screening and onboarding dramatically reduces the average pre-start vetting timescales, ensuring that front line critical candidates can commence their duties earlier, whilst providing assurance of vetting accuracy. At its heart is a digital screening and onboarding solution that delivers your new starters with a highly personalised experience, tailored to your company, the employee’s role and even their level of seniority.

Combatting rising fraud levels, it also offers highly accurate and compliant screening, keeping your business risk low. Critical when your business needs to move at speed and your team is reduced – or working from home. 

It also provides your new employees with a modern, engaging employee experience in their early months. This is more important than ever with so many new workers starting work remotely and in need of additional support and engagement.

Employee communication

Organisations are facing a series of challenges ranging from supporting their employees in a time of crisis to ensuring they can deliver the services that their employees expect and will need.

Communication is an enabler to ensure that employees feel connected to the business, supported during a time of change, engaged and productive. It is more important than ever.

At Capita we have developed a series of propositions to ensure that we can support any public or private sector organisation across all the touch points in the employee life cycle. We work with employers to deliver appropriate and timely employee communications.

Across pension scheme administration and HR processes, we have expertise in producing and delivering smart multi-channel employee communications via websites, emails, newsletters and social media content. We provide subject matter knowledge which provides reassurance and ensures we are reacting appropriately. The rate of inbound traffic is considerably reduced while at the same time delivering increased employee engagement and satisfaction.

Out of hours

Around the clock customer service support for citizens.

Local authorities, housing associations and other public sector providers must ensure that around the clock customer service is available for citizens who need urgent support.

Public sector bodies such as local authorities, housing associations and health service providers can join the partnership, wherever they are in the UK, to access a large pool of highly skilled and experienced customer service agents, to deliver their out of hours customer service requirements.
