The staffing sector is set for a shake up when the Recruitment Industry Benchmarking report (RIBreport) goes global with its online business diagnostics tool. Since 2004, RIBreport has provided more than 200 staffing firms with a monthly, unbiased perspective on the health of their business. This has included bespoke insights into sales, expenditure, profitability, productivity and more.
Now, ahead of the official rebranding and global launch of its interactive platform, named Staffing Industry Metrics, director Nigel Harse is pleased to announce Gattaca PLC is the first public company to deploy the dashboards across 41 operations in 14 countries.
“We’ve created an online business intelligence platform giving staffing firms access to real-time data, industry trends and instant peer group comparisons,” Nigel said. “It’s been a 14-year labour of love to build a platform that empowers everyone to see and understand their data with a click. Gattaca is a firm recognised for its pursuit of excellence and is a leading provider of specialist global recruitment services to the engineering and technology industries.
“It is the first global firm to hold a mirror up to its profits, expenditure and team performance, and then willing to see how it compares to the market, which shows the readiness of our industry to evolve, based on the facts.”
Brian Wilkinson, Gattaca CEO, said his business strives to create an environment where the management team have the business intelligence they need to do the best job for its customers.
“These dynamic industry specific management dashboards will augment our ability to do this,” he said. “We hope to see more recruitment firms take advantage of the system’s benchmarking functionality in order to more easily and accurately track relative business performance here in the UK and around the world.”
While SIM revolutionise how CEO’s, like Brian, track and understand their business metrics, the easy-to-use tool can also be tailored to:
•Arm chief financial officers with the tactical data they need to gain better control of all income and expenditure;
•Show branch and general managers how to use their results to educate, motivate and elevate team performance and engagement; and
•Keep board members and executives up-to-date with current industry insights so they can track strategy developments and make better informed decisions.
Martin Yalden, group financial controller at Gattaca, added: “The power of this reporting has elevated my organisation above the constraints of traditional financial reporting, enabling my users to quickly access and analyse data via their own individual dashboards.”
