Veriqual® – Benefits for both clients and candidates
Our Veriqual® system has received a great deal of press coverage over the years. The following is an extract from an article which featured in a national specialist magazine.
Harrison Scott are World pioneers of Veriqual®, a process that ‘goes beyond the traditional recruitment process.’ Each of our Consultants are responsible for a specialised sector in a defined geographical area. For example our Print Management South East Consultant’s job is to ‘live, breathe and eat’ everything relevant to Print Management recruitment in this area. This system is applied by Harrison Scott nationwide throughout each sector we operate in.
The ‘area management’ element of the Veriqual® process allows Consultants to build a sophisticated network. Information is obtained on a candidate’s background confidentially, before an approach is made.
Veriqual® considers the opinion of print buyers, former employers and peers throughout their career history. Veriqual® offers an accurate analysis of candidates’ character and track record.
Unique to the Industry, 85% of Harrison Scott’s candidates are directly approached rather than responding to advertising.
“Candidates are delighted that they don’t have to take time out of their busy schedule to meet us. They appreciate that we have already done all the research on their background prior to meeting them,” says Grudzien. “When discussing the Harrison Scott methodology with new clients, we ask “Whose opinion of the candidate would you rather have – that of the Recruitment Consultant, based on a one hour interview, or one based on Veriqual® which often takes into account the opinions of print buyers, former employers and peers, spanning over long periods of time”. Not surprisingly most decision-makers feel Veriqual® offers a more accurate analysis of the candidate’s character and track record.
