Pinstripe & Ochre House celebrate 100 days of integration
Pinstripe & Ochre House today marked a successful 100-day anniversary. The two brands joined forces in July to create the largest independent provider of global talent acquisition and strategic talent management solutions.
Since formally becoming one organisation, Pinstripe & Ochre House has uncovered a high degree of interest from new and current clients in the firm’s expanded global business capabilities. The company has successfully secured three new engagements in less than 90 days. The introduction of Talent Search Solutions, Carmichael Fisher Executive Search Services and the firm’s deep experience in the Middle East market have filled critical talent needs for North American-based client organisations. Those looking for healthcare talent anywhere around the globe have noted that Pinstripe & Ochre House’s clinical hiring experience is a true differentiator in the international marketplace.
Pinstripe & Ochre House has also successfully completed the integration of its corporate infrastructure, including a global enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM) system, cohesive accounting policies and company-wide procedures. These business continuity efforts have been accomplished in parallel with harmonising the joint culture of Service Excellence, which includes access to global collaboration through a shared, secure social technology platform, global account governance, scheduled best practice sessions, and global talent and HR practices. The combined company’s global brand planning is also well underway.
“As we began integrating two very successful, entrepreneurial businesses, it was critical to approach the challenge as one company,” said Sue Marks, CEO of Pinstripe & Ochre House. “In order to facilitate this process, we have implemented new technologies that provide full transparency across the business worldwide. With our new infrastructure, we are able to share best practices across all regions, enabling us to optimize our talent solutions for global clients while simultaneously increasing our local expertise.”
“Our ongoing success throughout the integration process is a testament to the dedication of our people,” said Sue Brooks, Executive Vice President. “Each member of the team came together to ensure a seamless transition for our clients, continuously providing the best-in-class service they expect from us.”
Pinstripe & Ochre House’s success has been recognised industry-wide. The company was awarded a top three ranking on HRO Today’s annual “Baker’s Dozen” list of global RPO firms. Based on client satisfaction surveys, Pinstripe & Ochre House was ranked third overall for global RPO providers in 2013. The company has been ranked among the world’s top RPO providers for six consecutive years, with 2013 marking the firm’s highest ranking ever—further evidence of its long-term commitment to growing as a global player in the talent management space. In addition, Pinstripe & Ochre House was honored with the 2013 North America and EMEA Recruitment Customer Partnership of the Year awards by the HROA.
