The Australian Business Award for Product Value [PVA] recognises products that deliver outstanding value offering a point of difference from their competitors.
The ABA recognised that we provide top quality, genuinely affordable recruitment services to hundreds of small and medium enterprises in Australia and New Zealand. We manage the process from start to finish performing functions such as employment market advice, writing job ads, sourcing candidates in line with client’s brief, screening applications, pre-selecting candidates and conducting referee checks.
The ABA also recognised that The Recruitment Alternative is dedicated to creating value, and has designed an effective service delivery model to deliver highly professional recruitment services at a fraction of conventional prices. We have introduced a flat fee, affordable cost approach in order to differentiate our services from our direct competitors. The simple, all-inclusive flat fee pricing structure is designed so there are no surprises for our clients, and no fee is charged if a candidate is not placed, as opposed to industry standards where the total cost is charged whether a placement is made or not. This transparency has led to the successfully placement of 85% of our job briefs, with 80% of business being repeat business from satisfied clients. The pricing model also includes a no questions asked three-month replacement guarantee. Underpinning our affordability proposition is our business model. All of our consultants work remotely from their home offices around Australia and New Zealand with three staff in head office in Sydney, Australia. This virtual model has the additional benefit of reducing our carbon footprint. We also achieved business growth of 20% in 2012, increasing to 28% in 2013.
