Knight Frank selects recruitment solution from Bond
KNIGHT FRANK SELECTS FLEXIBLE ONLINE RECRUITMENT SOLUTION FROM BOND INTERNATIONAL SOFTWARE
- ‘Bond Talent’ will improve efficiency and increase cost savings for global property consultancy -
2 May 2007: Knight Frank, the leading independent global commercial and residential property consultancy, has selected Bond Talent - an online recruitment, talent management system - from stock market-listed, Bond International Software.
Bond Talent automatically correlates employee information from a variety of sources such as web, email and post and formulates them into a single, online application form. The sophisticated workflow solution allows both Line Manager and HR to track online an application via a dedicated web portal as it is reviewed and commented upon and moves through the organisation’s HR and recruitment system.
The new solution from Bond will replace Knight Frank’s current labour intensive manual system which is unable to provide Real Time tracking of the progression of an application through the business.
Catherine Bentote Recruitment Manager, Human Resources, Knight Frank, commented: “As a company we pride ourselves on hiring great staff whose sales skills and knowledge of the property sector are second to none. Consequently we needed a recruitment solution that reflected this investment in recruiting top-quality staff.
“Flexibility was the key factor for us – we needed a software solution that was sophisticated but also able to adapt to our specific needs. Bond has a significant presence in the recruitment sector and is highly regarded within the marketplace. They were an obvious solution for us to consider.”
Bentote concluded: “We are confident that as a result of implementing Bond Talent we will improve the efficiency and reduce the costs of our recruitment process. Furthermore we can be much more confident and assured about our ability to react swiftly to the staffing demands of business growth. We’re now looking forward to working with Bond and seeing the system brought in successfully.”
Bond Talent is a specialist application for the global talent management industry which over many years has earned Bond the reputation for enhancing business growth and profitability throughout the industry. The software is the preferred choice of recruitment and resourcing teams in over 40 countries worldwide, with 70,000 users benefiting daily from the configurable web-based solutions.
