How to make the unconventional your standard
Some years ago, we came to realise that something was amiss in the world of work: We saw that in spite of the numerous Job offers, job-seekers had a hard time finding available jobs and companies had difficulties finding the right talent – which led to increasingly poor fits, retention rates and growth. And we thought to ourselves, “Surely someone will discover the opportunity and launch an agency with dual competency in HR and career services? Surely someone will realise the potential of accessing the 80% of jobs that are never advertised and the 75% of job seekers who remain passive? Surely someone will think outside the box?”
Incredibly, no one did.
Perplexed but determined, we set out on a mission to connect job seekers to jobs and employers to talent. We knew that only 20% of all jobs were advertised and that only 25% of candidates were visible to employers, so we started out by simply maximizing the number of contacts. It was a simple yet, as time would tell, surprisingly revolutionary step.
Thus R2 was born, and we took our little idea into a tiny office. And from there it grew. Or snowballed, rather. Because, as it turns out, having a deep understanding of whoever sits across the negotiating table is just as good as it sounds. Using our combined expertise in HR and career, we started seeing exceptional placement and recruitment rates.
It wasn’t long before we left the tiny office for more expansive vistas.
R2 now has multiple offices and key collaborators, working closely with multi-national concerns as well as small and medium-sized businesses, governments, insurers and job seakers. R2 has become an entry point to a network of employers and talents.
However, for all of R2’s expansion, at the very core, our business remains the same. We still identify specific needs in the field and use our dual competency to create the perfect customized solution. We’re still evolving, always considering new ways of making what’s great even better. We’re still listening. So, whether you’re in search of talent, jobs, placement services, optimizing your workforce or simply want to know more about how R2 can help, get in touch with us today.
You’ll find that, with results like ours, it’s easy to appreciate that unconventional comes standard.
