Resource Solutions has announced the launch of Accelerate, a new technology enabled Employed Consultant service developed in partnership with Infinity Global.io. Accelerate responsibly develops future ready talent to match clients’ requirements for skilled non-permanent workers whilst facilitating diverse hiring and social mobility.
The Accelerate programme uses Infinity Global.io’s proprietary digital platform to identify and source undiscovered talent – applicants who lack industry experience or formal qualifications but possess the aptitude to succeed and ability to upskill – and matches them with organisational need.
Norma Gillespie, CEO of Resource Solutions, said: “The Accelerate programme equips candidates with the skills they need to excel in a challenging macroeconomic environment and helps our clients access the best talent available in the market. It really is a win for everyone involved. It drives diversity and social mobility through sourcing undiscoverable talent, and is a great example of how doing what’s right for society can also be the best for individuals and organisations.”
Accelerate places skills at the forefront of the hiring process by using initial assessments designed to showcase technical aptitude, therefore increasing accessibility and removing hiring bias regarding experience, age, background, gender, orientation, belief, or physical capability. Successful applicants are benchmarked against client requirements before being placed into focused academies to receive intensive training and development. They are then deployed as Employed Consultants to Resource Solutions’ global client list to meet their evolving strategic imperatives, at speed and at a lower cost than traditional contingent workers.
Resource Solutions’ clients benefit from a one-stop-shop for skilled labour with a dedicated mentality – as the consultants are contracted to Resource Solutions and incentivised to increase its clients’ productivity levels – without a requirement to hire on a permanent basis, providing them with flexibility whilst reducing labour costs by 10-20 per cent.
Candidates benefit as they are able to learn valuable new skills and are provided with the opportunity to enter sectors and work environments, including at leading global brands, that they previously would have been excluded from, with the security of a full-time contract.
The Accelerate programme is set to significantly scale the capabilities of Infinity Global.io’s technology, providing access to Resource Solutions’ extensive client list of global brands and bridging gaps in a variety of disciplines, from business analysis to finance and communications.
