As many of you who supply under the All-of-Government contract will be aware, RCSA held a series of forums in 2018 to connect the panel of suppliers with MBIE (Ministry of Business Innovation & Employment) procurement representatives to discuss key issues and consult within industry to drive best practice.
Previous issues identified at these forums centred on non-compliance/probity check issues as well as a desire to strengthen relationships with hiring managers and access feedback on performance.
At that time the key actions discussed were:
Produce a White Paper to provide clarity on what good recruitment looks like and to drive best practice and;
Facilitate expos to bring recruitment suppliers and hiring managers/HR from government agencies together to position recruitment value, and strengthen relationships.
We have since established a working group within the NZ Council to drive the key outcomes initially identified at these forums.
The All-of-Government (AOG) Working Group aims to provide guidance on what we as recruitment providers, believe contributes to better supplier relationships and service outcomes to government agencies, and will consider both supplier and agency behaviours.
The Working Group will focus on strengthening the relationships between providers and participating agencies and identify critical success factors.
