Case Study – The GLA

We kept London on the map.

The Challenge

Overseeing transport, policing, economic development, and even fire and emergency planning, means that the GLA recruits for tons of different roles, at different times and with different requirements. But thanks to one global pandemic, an imminent recruitment surge and lack of internal bandwidth, this job was about to get much harder. What they needed was a team to take the weight off their shoulders. They were in a crisis, so we got to work.

 

The Solution

Quite simply, we took our relationship to the next level. They made us a copy of their keys, and we embedded ourselves within the GLA. With two engage|ats project managers assigned to every hiring manager, we took control of everything from campaign structure to candidate management and communications. We got cosy, bunkered down and got to experience the inner workings of the city in a whole new light.

 

The Results

It worked perfectly. Together, we rode out the storm and brought in the right kind of permanent talent, with functionality and ease, across an array of sectors. What did this mean for the GLA? Well, they could move away from using temporary resources, reduce the time to hire and manage the recruitment spike in a cost-effective way. Our partnership worked so well that the GLA extended our arrangement for a full six months more: “Havas People understand the recruitment landscape from a technology point of view with their applicant tracking system – engage|ats. They are also excellent in managing recruitment campaigns. The GLA is delighted to have partnered with Havas People over the years.” — Human Resources Reward and Operations Manager, The GLA
