The solution initially included: digitized assessments, asynchronous video interviews, employee branding through a new careers site & programmatic advertising, the deployment of a state of the art recruitment system and a dedicated, robust account management team.
In order for the model to work so effectively, it was essential that TalentintheCloud understood the culture of DPO – what success looked like and why certain people excelled. During the discovery phase of the project, four of DPO’s top performers were interviewed and assessed resulting in a qualitative benchmark that was used to measure future candidates against.
Both DPO and TalentintheCloud refined and iterated the process by deploying new tools and strategies to deal with various nuances in specific countries. The recruitment process at DPO is now one of the slickest in Africa where the candidate experience, time to hire and most importantly the quality of hire is continually measured, analysed and improved.
