Flexible Recruitment Approach

Your people are your most important asset. At Standard Candle HR, we partner with you to design a flexible recruitment strategy to ensure you find the best people. We aim to find people who will thrive in your business and help your business grow.

Our customised approach does not come with the usual high-cost recruitment fee. We view each recruitment project on its merits and, by doing so, provide a greater degree of flexibility. We charge an hourly rate for our service that delivers exceptional value for money – no placement fees and no high commissions based on a percentage of the salary package.

You also can tailor our services specific to your individual preference and needs. We can undertake the full 360 recruitment process, or we can quote on each stage of the recruitment process to let us know how much or how little you would like to be involved.

Our recruitment services include:

  • Developing a position description
  • Creating a key recruitment brief and screening form
  • Advertising
  • Screening applicants
  • Headhunting
  • Interviewing or Panel Assessments
  • Reference checking
  • Job offers
  • Contracts of employment

In addition, our senior staff possess significant experience in managing mass or bulk recruitment campaigns to screen large numbers of applicants simultaneously.

Employee Management

How you introduce people into your business directly relates to how productive they will be and how long they will stay. Our HR Specialists can work with you to develop an engaging onboarding and induction process to ensure your new employees hit the ground running and feel positive and part of the team from day one.

A good induction process needs to be specific to each position and cover a few months. It should incorporate a range of topics from organisational values, vision and strategy to compliance requirements such as safety and specific on-the-job training.

Our team of highly experienced consultants have the necessary expertise to ensure that your onboarding and induction processes are successful. We can implement a structured program that provide detailed orientation, company knowledge, and on-the-job training through effective communication and feedback mechanisms.

The SCHR team can assist with a number of key employee management areas including:

  • Induction
  • Onboarding
  • Position description review and creation
  • KPI development and implementation
  • Performance improvement processes
  • Employee engagement programs
  • Employee retention programs

Types of workplace training and workshops we offer:

  • Leadership training

Succession Planning

Succession planning is a strategy for identifying and developing future leaders at your company — not just at the top but for major roles at all levels. It helps your business prepare for all contingencies by preparing high-potential workers for advancement.

Our Strategic Succession Planning Service helps your business identify critical jobs, potential successors and skills gaps while providing employees with insight into available career goals. When you engage Standard Candle HR to help you to develop a succession plan, we identify internal employees with the potential to fill leadership positions so you can help them along that path.

Salary Benchmarking
& Remuneration Consulting

Salary benchmarking is a process by which we assess your internal job descriptions and match them to roles described within established salary surveys. As a part of the matching process, we also consider your industry, location and other factors that can affect a salary. From here, we can provide you with not only the breakdown of what your industry is currently paying for different positions (salary bands), we can also let you know how your employees and their current salary fits into these ranges.

Whether you’re developing a new competitive pay structure or aligning productivity and performance for your people, access to a robust set of data and benchmarks both at market level and at specific job levels is critical to attract and retain the best talent for your business.
