Visibility & Control

Datum provides complete visibility and control by managing the recruitment process from point of order, through to invoice. Vacancies can be added onto our online recruitment software and will be distributed to agencies, or alternatively, hiring managers can call our Recruitment Team and we will liaise directly with agencies to ensure that vacancies are filled.

All hours are tracked through our online recruitment software, vacancies can be authorised and approved, and invoices are generated and sent electronically.

Management information is generated in real-time, and details spend breakdown by site, agency, category of worker. It also tracks tenure for the Agency Workers Regulations, demographic information, time to fill and rights to work in the UK.

Legal Compliance

Our online software checks information, including rights to work in the UK, driving licences, DBS checks, qualifications, health & safety training and tenure, in line with Agency Workers Regulations. We also regularly audit agencies and agency worker records.

Supplier Management

We propose a panel of agencies based on your existing suppliers, taking into account process, financial stability, geographic capability and legal compliance. If there is a lack of suppliers, we suggest new ones we trust.

Improved Performance

Agencies will be measured in line with an agreed Service Level Agreement. Agencies will be given quarterly reviews and 360-degree feedback. Their individual performance will be benchmarked against the entire supply chain. Agencies that perform well will be rewarded with more business by moving up the league table and those that do not perform will be relegated or removed entirely.

Improved Performance

Cost Savings

We deliver direct cost savings of between 6%-16% by standardising pay rates & margins and stopping overcharging on Employers National Insurance (NI) and holiday pay.

We also reduce operational costs by consolidating invoices, so you only receive one per week or month.

Brand Management

We standardise the engagement experience to ensure agency workers view your business in a positive light and have the best possible experience, consistent with your own brand values.
