Abacus Best Practice in Recruitment Operations

It is good to say that we will be fair, ethical and honest in what you do.  It is better to clearly outline what fairness and equality look like in your organisation.  Our commitments to all stakeholders are outlined below:

1: We are fair, legal and ethical in our resource planning and recruitment procedures, with specific regard to actively promoting diversity and inclusion within the workplace.

2: We exercise good recruitment practice and apply this equally to temporary, contract, interim, fixed term and part-time workers.

3: We will aim to deliver the highest standard of candidate experience, with ongoing communication during the recruitment process, including two-way feedback for all those interviewed.

4: We will offer and recommend flexible working arrangements and adaptive working practices, wherever possible, as a way of boosting inclusion and enhancing the attraction of talent.

5: We ask that those managing and delivering the recruitment process (whether internal Abacus staff or client businesses) work to recognised standards, undertake any relevant training/qualification, and commit to continuous development.

6: Our supply chain will deliver good recruitment practice throughout, including where different resourcing models, such as recruitment process outsourcing or vendor arrangements, are in place.

7: We will help to address youth employment through our recruitment procedures and making recommendations to our clients; for example, through the provision of apprenticeships and traineeships, and by working with recruitment organisations who have signed up to the REC’s Youth Employment Charter.

8: We will regularly review our recruitment procedures alongside feedback from candidates (those appointed and not appointed). We will keep up-to-date with new recruitment/resourcing approaches and adapt them as necessary.

If you are unsure of any aspect or have a confidential query please email [email protected] marking confidential and for a Director.

Signed on behalf of the Abacus Talent Group.
