Congratulations to Oleeo Client Kesha Ladwa

Charles Hipps May 3, 2017

Oleeo would like to express huge congratulations to our client, Kesh Ladwa, Recruitment Manager at Warwickshire Police & West Mercia Police.

On 3 May 2017, he was awarded the accolade of In-House Recruitment Manager of the Year at the Recruiter Awards 2017. Oleeo & Warwickshire Police & West Mercia Police were also finalists in the technology innovation category.

Kesh was recognized by the industry magazine for having  “significantly improved the candidate experience and delivered a quicker and effective recruitment service for the business” - achievements which the forces have attributed to the implementation of the Oleeo for Police Recruiting  platform.

The two forces were spending £3m agency spend in 2015 and had low candidate experience, now with WCN as one of the improvements implemented, it has reduced agency spend to £1m 2016.

The benefits are starting to be felt across the organization, with reductions in several areas including:

·         overall costs to recruit

·         higher caliber of applicants

·         reduction in time to interviews

·         minimized administration duties

·         better consistency of approach to hiring.

In addition, the time taken for new hires has been reduced in most cases from the previous timescales of up to 6 months, to an average of 2-3 months. By maintaining ownership and control of the recruitment processes themselves, the force can build a more manageable and accessible talent pool, which gives a critical competitive edge in the continuous search for new talent for our organization.
