Delivering RPO savings for Origin Energy

Talent Acquisition savings

We created a client-branded on-site RPO solution for Australia’s leading integrated energy company. With diverse operations spanning the energy supply chain - and markets in Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific - our client needed to centralise acquisition of contractors, temporary and permanent hires.

 
The Challenge The Challenge
  • Improve visibility, controls and spend
  • Decrease potential for co-employment
  • Reduce occupational health and safety (OH&S) and taxation risks
  • Launch a talent acquisition outsourcing (RPO) model first for contingent workforce and then for permanent hiring
  • Scale up support rapidly to meet an increase of almost 50% in talent acquisition volumes
The Solution The Solution

Historically, the organisation had operated a decentralised model to manage attracting and engaging their contractor and temporary talent. We launched a contingent workforce RPO model in partnership with the client, which expanded to include permanent hiring.

Our solution was soon tested by a large rise in talent acquisition volumes - nearly 50% more than forecast. The team we put in place was able to scale up quickly, with 30% more people to support our client's increased needs.

We now have a scope of services covering all of the clients attraction, sourcing, selection, purchase orders (PO) and invoicing. Our client-branded solution is based on-site in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide, with on and off-shore support for sourcing, administration and business intelligence.

We also manage the partner relationship with other key suppliers -  responsible for the contingent worker back-office processes, including engagement, payroll and talent management.

 

The Results The Results
  • 2,000 permanent and 1,200 new contractor hires per year
  • Implemented client-specific rate card - sourcing candidates at or below market rates
  • 100% compliance to background checking and health and safety induction requirements
  • Centralised PO and invoice management, reducing administration within client business units
  • Payroll savings of more than $5 million from a contractor furlough project
  • 84% Hiring Manager satisfaction, 90% candidate satisfaction
  • Around 75% of contingent candidates sourced by direct channels
  • Over 95% of permanent candidates sourced by direct channels
  • Savings valued in excess of $12 million since service inception
