Cordant People launches Standby Service
Cordant People has launched a Standby Service to provide businesses based in Central London with highly responsive people cover.
The company says it can now provide general staff and office professionals within just one hour for both new and existing clients based within zones one and two of the city.
According to Cordant People, the move has been designed to help those businesses requiring additional staff due to employee illness or increased workload. The service is available from Monday to Friday between the hours of 8.30am and 10.30am, which the company states is a key two-hour period where the vast majority of organisations are able to evaluate proposed daily activity and calculate required resources.
The service incorporates a four-hour minimum consignment so businesses are under no obligation to employ a candidate for a full day, which is beneficial to smaller businesses with limited budgets. Career temps are also available, so organisations can request the same candidate to return at a later date in a bid to promote business continuity, Cordant People says.
Kelly Kendall, managing director of Cordant People, said, “Many businesses across London are regularly affected as a result of staff sickness and the consequence of operating a reduced workforce can be costly. Meanwhile, there are many organisations that may quickly require more staff due to additional work or fast approaching deadlines. By launching a dedicated Standby Service, we are providing both new and existing clients with flexibility, peace of mind and value for money.”
