Fastflow Malaysia: Clinched Faster than Expected

Right after securing a partnership with Tiger Scaffolds, along with a dozen other New Zealand clients, Rensol Recruitment & Consulting immediately closed another deal, this time with a construction management giant’s Malaysian branch. Fastflow Malaysia, a member of the highly specialized Fastflow Group, is a well-known solutions provider for rainwater drainage management in building projects across the Asia Pacific. They are also a constant recipient of the prestigious BEI Asia Awards and Singapore Business Review (SBR) Management Excellence Awards.

Fastflow Malaysia reached out to Rensol after learning that the fastest growing ethical recruitment agency satisfied a previous manpower order for Classic Advantage Sdn Bhd, one of the leading manufacturers and providers of precision plastic parts and molds for engineering construction in Malaysia. The latter, being a parts supplier, referred Rensol and its above and beyond recruitment service to its peers.

Fastflow Malaysia placed a ‘test order’ to asses and evaluate if Rensol is capable of sourcing specialized technical positions. Not only did the leading ethical manpower provider delivered, they went above and beyond for their new partner. Every step of the Fastflow Malaysia recruitment campaign was undoubtedly fast. Fast but detail-oriented accreditation process, fast and quality driven candidate sourcing, and equally qualitative and fast deployment. The test order was deployed, and the client is very happy. Rensol is now expecting a bigger recruitment order coming very soon.

This is not the first time Rensol secured a partner within the Malay peninsula. Early clients such as Times Software and Ranhill Bersekutu Sdn Bhd up to newer clients like CBRE – Asia Pacific Business Services, Business Technovise International Sdn Bhd, and Quess Global Sdn Bhd have all used and gained from the top-class manpower and staffing solutions that Rensol provides.

Expect bigger and better things in Malaysia and the rest of Asia, as the fastest growing ethical and international recruitment agency reaches out and deepens its connection with more similarly ethical companies providing more quality driven professional opportunities for more aspiring Filipino workers.

UK Oil and Gas: Man and Power

If you are a UK Oil and Gas company, what do you think would set you apart from other companies specializing in the same trade?

I recently had a conversation with two British friends based in Manchester and are both inclined with the oil and gas field. One works at Clyde Marine, a UK Oil and Gas Recruitment agency while the other works at Penspen, provider of engineering and management services for the UK Oil and Gas. Both guys are living together in Manchester, on a property that is being drilled by a different oil company.  They expressed their amazement noting that the competitor’s technical and skilled workforce, the “hole pokers” as they called them, are composed of mostly non-UK born or expatriates.

Their surprise went overboard when I shared that their peers in the industry have also assimilated the acquisition of overseas workers into their labor force. Also, UK Oil and Gas Recruitment agencies are now more open into partnering with Asian recruitment firms to find and source for additional manpower.

According to the UK Office for National Statistics, there are about 6,000 non-UK nationals employed in the country right now. About 10% of this number are working in the oil and gas industry. Within that 10% are Asian workers from India, Nepal, Vietnam, and the Philippines.

My friends recalled of a time when they barely see non-natives in their industry. British Oil and Gas professionals, like any other industry experts, are very keen and meticulous on who they permit to work in their trade. They must meet certain professional, technical, and educational benchmark before they can stand beside them. One friend told of a story where one company once contracted foreign workers for cheaper labor. They had spent a month digging down the ground and missed their mark and broke the casing causing an oil leak and it had to be sealed. Although, this type of situation is all too common for oil and gas drillers, allowing non-O&G occupational experts to work in their projects can cause more frustration and increase the cost of production.

Manchester is located northwest of London and has experienced large growth in their population. Pre-boom of the UK Oil and Gas industry, Manchester had roughly 165,000 people and since the latest UK Oil and Gas boom it has grown to roughly 600,000 people. Manchester is not unique in this experience, cities across the country are experiencing similar growth due to oil and gas, and along with that growth, comes the insurgence of new Oil and Gas Companies.  My friends from Manchester say that there’s also a growing fear for a saturated market and the lack of manpower that established companies are dealing with.

Technology. We obviously know that the United Kingdom companies with the most technologically advanced rigs will be the ones that capture the most market share. According to UBS United Kingdom, companies with modern fleet are earning higher day rates, margins, and are in greater demand because of better technology. But, technology in the O&G industry spreads across many functions including research and development, day to day operations and technical, skilled, and field work. There’s a lot of funding going into innovative companies that can help O&G companies work smarter.

Manpower. Another facet of success in the UK Oil and Gas is the availability and effectivity of its available labor force. Although the United Kingdom is home to some 9 Million people, not many of them are coming in the oil and gas trade. Since the demand is increasing, and more UK oil and gas companies are appearing, more and more workers of the technical and skilled level will be needed. Private institutions have already started looking for professionals abroad. Everyone in the industry is increasingly aware of the increasing labor gap so they have started looking outside.

***

If you are a UK Oil and Gas company, what do you think would set you apart from other companies specializing in the same trade? The answer is simple. The things that would set you apart from your competitors are your aptitude for the latest technology and the abundance of well-equipped and able manpower.

Fortunately, for the UK Oil and Gas trade, multinational ethical recruitment agencies like Rensol is always on the go and ready to help.

Japanese Construction & Artificial Intelligence

Japanese construction, which has deeply suffered from the country’s prolonged labor shortage, still expects a far worse situation for the next decade with at least a million people who are set to retire from the industry. By 2025, a potential shortage of 8 million workers is expected. One of the solutions that the country has tried is to integrate robots that can haul supplies, weld beams, and install ceiling panels.

Japanese construction is continuously being dominated by robots due to lack of human resources to man its many construction sites. Apparently, one robot per five construction workers is already distributed in many areas to aid the lack of manpower.

While robots are saving thousands of hours of labor for tasks a human usually performs, their participation in the workforce is kept to the minimal to the most laborious tasks in construction. Automation and the robot revolution are just beginning in the Japanese construction industry and more innovation are expected to come in succeeding years.

Unlike other countries where workers are afraid of losing their jobs to machinery, Japanese construction companies are more afraid of not being able to engineer robots before their construction workers reach their retirement age.

New robots are being developed to support high-rise construction. In Japanese construction, however, many have been developed, but only a few were deployed. Robot labor, as projected, will only make up about 1 per cent of each construction projects due to the complexity of the overall construction works.

Japan’s ageing population will soon leave many industries and the technology needed to fill in each vacancy might not be ready enough. Apart from employing robots, Japanese construction companies tried to increase pay, improve working conditions, encourage female participation, and global construction recruitment of foreign workers to boost construction activities.

Global Construction Recruitment

The birth rate has been declining in Japan for years already which has to lead to the shrinking of the Japanese construction workforce. Most construction workers are getting older and many contractors are having a hard time attracting young people. Even with the booming of Japanese construction, contractors are struggling to fill labor shortages.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe once introduced a new visa for non-professional foreign laborer as he expressed the need of the country to rush recruitment of foreign talents to abridge labor shortage. Japan and the Philippines have previously signed an agreement to conduct training of construction workers to boost the supply of qualified manpower. Applicants to Japan must first undergo training and study their language and culture.

The Philippines is in a good position to help Japan mitigate its recruitment challenges given the fact that the country is known for only accepting high-skilled talent from overseas.

The country has long lagged from other developed countries in terms of integrating foreign workers into local industries. But with the ageing, shrinking workforce, Tokyo breaks this taboo to welcome half a million low-skilled foreign workers in the coming years.

International Recruitment Agency: Rensol 2020

Renaissance Solutions PH or more popularly known as Rensol Recruitment & Consulting, branded as the fastest growing recruitment agency in the Philippines is also confirmable as a leading ethical, international recruitment agency.

From their very humble beginnings up to their now extraordinary present, Rensol as an international recruitment agency has always strived to do the right thing. Their commitment to the highest quality standards, delivering professional and safe services to all jobseekers and workers is their motivation and reason why they remain active amidst all the hardships and challenges they face as a business.

Indeed, success for Rensol as an ethical international recruitment agency did not come easy. Yes, ethical recruitment is already existing when Rensol came to be but it was widely shunned upon. The international recruitment agency encountered dozens of principals who were in favor, were used to and have no qualms charging professional fees to workers for employment. More than a dozen deals were lost and it felt like a losing battle as most of their competition condones and promotes placement fees.

However, times are changing for the better. The challenges Rensol faced finding foreign partners that mirrored their principles as an international recruitment agency did not fazed them. The old negative side of recruitment is slowly wavering. While the demand for highly ethical recruitment is growing. Global organizations who are in favor and in support of responsible and ethical recruitment such as the World Employment Confederation and International Labor Organization (ILO) are now actively regulating employment and recruitment agencies around the world. Local regulating bodies such as the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) is also now stronger than ever.

Today, more and more international recruitment agencies are mirroring the “No Placement Fee” policy as it enhances their company reputation and enables them to differentiate themselves from unscrupulous competitors. In like manner, more and more foreign principals are recognizing the importance working with an ethical international recruitment agency such as Rensol and protecting job seekers by upholding worker rights, establishing clear worker protection and prohibiting fee-charging for employment.

Truly, ethical recruitment is now widely accepted and even sought after by many employers around the globe. Sticking and committing to what is right has done wonders for the recruitment and staffing industry.

As for Rensol, employment providers are now proactively meeting with them, seeking for their expertise in providing highly ethical recruitment campaigns for their talent acquisition and staffing needs.

Japan’s Automotive Industry Turns Global

Japan, despite being denied of rich resources, is blessed with the gifts of innovative and tech-minded people. Unfortunately, the country suffers from an abundance of jobs, yet too few workers are available to fill in every vacancy. As per Japan Times, the low fertility rate in the country and high life expectancy impacts the number of the local workforce. Many businesses in Japan are suffering from attracting the right number of employees they need. The skilled level of Japan’s Automotive Industry for one, being less sought-after, have been nearly impossible from being filled.

It is an important aspect to take notice that the local younger generation is not attracted to the skilled and mechanical posts of Japan’s Automotive Industry. The industry is going out of skilled and efficient workers. People are mostly in their retirement age and automakers couldn’t find a younger replacement for each of them. This is even with the Japanese world-known talent management schemes which include egalitarian compensation, lifetime employment, and tenure-based advancement.

In a study by the Recruit Works Institute, one in three Japanese companies are consistently failing to meet recruitment targets. The said tight labor market pushes for fewer job inquiries from workers for a common job title. Japan’s Automotive Industry has inexorably shrinking working-age population and there is no way of expanding the labor pool to correspond every job seeker to the abundance of jobs accordingly.

Turning Global

Japanese are very welcoming when it comes to dealing with international partners. With a stronger yen and undeniable shrinking of its domestic market, many companies under Japan’s Automotive Industry are trying to consider global recruitment in the coming of the new age, this is despite cultural and language barriers that some had found frustrating. Japan is still less global compared to its neighbouring countries as their way into globalization is still a work in progress.

Japan, being a monocultural and monolinguist country, has been critically trying to move to English as it opens itself to the vast world of talent. Little by little, companies are realizing the importance of embracing globalization and considering English as a second language to attain a rich exchange of talented people, especially In Asia.

Companies within Japan’s Automotive Industry are credible enough to be global leaders given their adeptness in manufacturing and technological prowess. Even in a slower pace, Japan as a sleeping giant is beginning to wake up. They have started by the recruitment of foreign automotive executives to take care of their international relations.

The role of automotive recruitment agencies like Rensol Recruitment is to promote active participation among the labour force by encouraging diversity in the workplace. Rensol’s major role is to help the most-fitting automotive and mechanical job seekers and employers find each other. Japan’s Automotive Industry is a goldmine and its entrance into the international job market is a big opportunity for a rich cultural and economic exchange for labor-rich countries.

Allow us to help grow your business and get you connected to the best automotive professionals available.

How Rensol Rehabilitated Abuse on Prescription Drugs among Healthcare Staff: A Case Study

Case Study - Oil Company

Client Problem: Hospital Administrator in Dubai Discovered that Some of His Staff have been Abusing Prescription Drugs

  • Hospital admin notices inventory shrinkage in prescription drugs.
  • Some allied and medical staff from the employer’s first recruitment partner were proven positive for drug dependence.

Rensol’s Solution: Recommended Rehabilitation of Medical Staff until they Regain Full Practice Again, Recruitment of Medical Professionals Without History of Drug Abuse, Employ Stricter Rules and Launch Educational Programs in Handling of Prescription Drugs

  • Rensol, as the second recruitment partner, advised the hospital owner to subject all medical staff involved in drug diversion to a temporary suspension of license until they fully recover upon rehabilitation.
  • The partner recruitment agency recommended rigorous recruitment of medical staff with no history of drug abuse.
  • Rensol endorses imposition of stricter rules on the handling of prescription drugs and educational programs to continuously train healthcare staff on substance and drug abuse.

Even with the best and stellar medical staff you have, abuse on prescription drugs is a quiet epidemic that falls prey many hospital workers. Drug addiction is a major health risk among healthcare professionals, apart from it being a breach of their professional ethics. Aside from putting patients at risk, this can be damaging to the reputation of any healthcare facility.

Hospitals are filled with prescription painkillers which may induce craving to abused drugs. The intense physical and emotional demand of their job, along with the stress of mandatory overtime, long shifts, and unpredictable shift rotation, contributes to the temptation to steal some.

Case in Point: Drug Diversion in a Medical Workplace

The hospital owner was alarmed upon knowing that a great shrinkage has been happening in the hospital’s inventory of prescription drugs.

In an investigation, some staff deployed by their first recruitment partner had been caught using left-overs and even whole vials of drugs from the dispenser intended for patients. The management found that some staff had proven drug dependence on various prescription drugs to induce migraine, insomnia, and body pain. Many of them had thought that self-medication would not make them addicted and that medications could make them feel better.

Some medical staff were even caught forging prescriptions to acquire drugs. Some diverted drugs by only administering the partial dose to their patient and saved the left-overs for them.

Rensol Rehabilitation

With the need to source a bunch of healthcare staff from other countries, the healthcare facility sought the help of Rensol to aide in manpower needs. As part of Rensol’s mandate not just to be a manpower sourcing agent for the company, the agency deemed it necessary to support the client with its ailing human resource issue on drug dependence.

As a recommendation, Rensol advised the medical unit to provide an adequate support facility for addicted staff. This will prevent issues from coming out the hospital that may damage the facility’s reputation. This is also a responsibility for their workers as drug addiction is still a medical issue that needs to be addressed. This is a responsibility to protect patients and to help every colleague who is under distressed.

Without treating their addiction, patient safety can be jeopardized by diverting drugs from patients, possible neglect on patients, committing of mistakes, and impaired judgment. It is the ethical obligation of the employer to subject the impaired nurse to rehabilitation toward their recovery. Addiction, after all, is a treatable disease yet fatal, if left untreated.

Rensol suggested that the concerned staff’s employment must be temporarily suspended. They will have no access to narcotics and will be subjected under the supervision of a physician until full recovery.

Rensol assisted the healthcare facility to aid in their recruitment needs by sourcing staff with the smallest chance of becoming abusive to prescription drugs. Rigorous screening and background checking have been strictly done and orientation has been comprehensive to meet the demand of the job site.

Rensol recommended that the healthcare facility should have an educational program and stricter policies on the handling of prescription drugs, drug abuse, drug dependence and in how to support their colleagues who will be subjected to rehabilitation programs.

Why Finding a Good Workforce is Vital for the Hospitality Industry?

Hospitality Workforce

The Food & Beverage, Travel & Tourism, Accommodation, and Recreation are the segments of the hospitality industry which necessitate the need for delivering a service, subject to fulfilling customer satisfaction.

Customer satisfaction in hospitality is affected by different factors, greatest of which is the service quality. It is easy to define service quality, but as always, it is a lot harder to take it into action, especially with the height of the competition in the industry.

As hospitality establishments and services become more available in the market, the higher the demands and expectations of the customers become; which poses a greater challenge to the players in the industry to deliver quality service.

To survive the competition in this sector, one must have the passion and commitment to serving the people – with the aim of making them happy and truly fulfilled. One must know the service etiquettes, must have the capability to socialize, must have a positive attitude, must have an open mind and heart for criticism, and must be dedicated enough to deliver a satisfying service – accustomed to the need of the guest. This involves all people from the senior management to the lower ranks. Thus, finding the right people with the right skills and attitude is vital to the success of hospitality establishments. Today, this is one of the issues arising in the hospitality industry globally – labor and skills shortage as per International Society of Hospitality Consultants (ISHC). Factors stated which contributed to this effect were demographics, wage rates, failure to address worker satisfaction, and a reputation for long hours and long pay.

Studies have shown a direct relationship between employee satisfaction and customer satisfaction – which has a significant impact on the financial performance of an institution; therefore, if companies keep their workforce happy, this will clearly reflect the service they provide, resulting to a positive customer experience. With this, businesses should address the factors that affect talent acquisition on the hospitality industry to be able to attract the right people and to further make improvements on their services, which will impact their business profitability.

A good service will survive the competition in the hospitality industry, but an excellent one will stand out.

Find the most competent talents for your business. Let Rensol be your recruitment partner!

Rensol Recruitment Attends 2018 Joint Phil-KSA Industry Conference on the Welfare and Protection of OFW’s

PRAASA Conference

Subic Bay Freeport, Philippines – April 22, 2018 – Rensol Recruitment and Consulting attends the Joint Phil-KSA Industry Conference on the Welfare and Protection of Overseas Filipino Workers.

In line with protecting the welfare of OFWs in Saudi Arabia, the Philippine Recruitment Agencies Accredited to Saudi Arabia (PRAASA) board and POEA licensed recruitment agencies all over the country gather for a three-day conference held at Subic Bay Travelers Hotel and Events Place from April 22 to 24.

The conference theme “Working Together on a Common Vision for a Better Protected Overseas Filipino Worker” is so relevant to the issues and challenges on the welfare of OFWs today. Many propositions have been put forth as solutions to improving the welfare and protection of OFW’s in the middle east, specifically, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; but inequity and injustice to Filipino workers are still rampant, hence, the need for the government and licensed recruitment agencies to unite, consolidate their best practices, and move forward with most favorable resolutions.
