New company 'Laenus' launches to disrupt care and education recruitment in the UK
Combining the strategies and efficiencies of MSP and RPO used by businesses on a global scale, their offering includes a targeted permanent recruitment service that bridges that gap between executive search and agency recruitment. The industry has been calling for a deeper search of the market and more reliable fill-rates but without the high fees associated with true headhunting. In response, their founding partners have spent much of 2018 developing the Laenus CQI (Care Quality Index) platform, an assessment tool designed collaboratively with business psychologists and sector leaders in order to benchmark candidates against the top competencies required to be a successful home manager.
Sam Pride, Founding Director, said 'we are excited to offer a range of unique solutions to the care market that have traditionally only been available to the very largest of companies. By working with sector experts to co-design and refine our toolkit specifically for social care, we expect to have a significant impact on our client's ability to identify, attract and retain top talent in a difficult market.'
The UK social care sector has traditionally been slow to adapt to new talent attraction technologies and innovations. Even the largest care groups and heaviest investors in talent face fundamental hiring and retention challenges. Despite the UK needing 3,200 extra elderly care homes by 2026 to meet demand, 700 closed in the two years to May 2018, many of which were due to recruitment and retention challenges or factors closely related.
'As a team with huge amounts of experience helping the world's largest companies become more efficient in their pursuit of talent, we are excited to be able to offer our knowledge and experience to such a deserving sector' - Sam Pride
Founded by a team of four with over 65 years of combined recruitment and healthcare experience, Laenus works across the UK. For more information get in touch with Sam Pride - 07375 119 893 or firstname.lastname@example.org
