In recruitment, time is more worth of gold.

Longer recruitment process may literally cost you a lot, but a rushed recruitment may even cost you more if it leads you to hire the wrong person. More than “time is gold’, timing in recruitment is everything. Having a reliable partner agency to assist in providing staffing solutions is the most cost-effective and time-efficient considering the extreme cost to hire expatriates.

Case in Point: A Partner Who Fell Short of what was Expected

A healthcare facility in Egypt decided to partner with a recruitment agency in the Philippines. The facility was still under completion and was in need to finalize the pool of their in-house health experts such as a gastroenterologist, endocrinologist, internist, obstetrician-gynecologists, etc. and some bunch of surgeons and physicians as right before it opens.

The promised hassle-free accreditation went with lots of flaws that delayed everything they had initially planned. The manpower pooling started but for almost two months, no qualified profile was presented and there were no actual candidates introduced for an interview. The management doubted if the firm can provide their staffing demand given their healthcare standards.

There was only half a year left for the hospital to complete their pool of experts, but there is still no assurance from the firm if they could still comply even with the lump sum of money they had already devoted to pushing the recruitment process.

Rensol’s Medical Magic

With Rensol’s inbound marketing efforts, the client company was able to learn that there were still recruitment agencies which will not just provide them the most fitting talents, but effective staffing solutions as well to resolve their manpower crisis, all at once.

As assessed, Rensol found out that the client company had dealt with an agency without a proven track record to provide specialists and experts. Upon checking POEA records, there are still no approved job orders, thus the accreditation of the foreign company was not finalized for a couple of months already.

Rensol discussed this with the client company and they, in turn, decided to let Rensol take over the job being neglected by the negligent recruitment firm.  With a simpler and standardized process in accreditation assistance and the overwhelming compliance of the client company, the job order was accredited in less than 3 weeks.

How Rensol Came To Rescue a Steel Factory in the Middle East Flocked with Unfit Workers: A Case Study

Case Study - Oil Company

Client Problem: Steel Factory in Qatar Discovered their Partner Recruitment Agency to Supply them with Workers who Fail the Required Medical Exam

  • Client notices that accidents became frequent with the deployment of foreign workers in his factory.
  • The steel factory in Qatar finds out that the bulk of candidates deployed by a recruitment agency from the Philippines failed their medical exam and are unfit to work.
  • The said Philippine recruitment agency allegedly fakes the medical status of their workers despite the safety risks in a factory workplace.

Rensol’s Solution: Assist in Revocation of Former Partner Agency to POEA, Expedite Process to Replace Incompatible Workers with Fit-to-Work Workers

  • The steel factory sought the help of Rensol to solve the health and safety hazard of retaining unfit workers.
  • Rensol advised to disconnect with the former recruitment agency and assisted with the revocation process as faking medical status is a serious violation of the Revised Rules and Regulations on overseas recruitment imposed by POEA.
  • Due to the urgent need to fill in the large gap on vacated position, Rensol executed a contingency plan in accreditation and recruitment process in the fastest, yet more ethical way.

High standards of physical fitness are vital in a factory workplace with all those rotating equipment and heavy machinery one may be exposed to. Apparently, accident-proneness of a worker is correlated to one’s fitness for the job. With all the hazards, a worker’s technical skills and medical fitness are necessary factors during staff recruitment to an unsafe environment.

Apart from the danger that this pose to their health and their co-workers’, the cost of an accident to the company, even with the worker’s own negligence, is financially hurting and practically troubling to the factory’s operation.

That’s why the pre-employment medical examination is one of the important requisite before a worker’s deployment to the job site. Assurance from an accredited clinic that the worker is fit enough to work is the final go signal for a recruitment agency to pursue one’s application. The medical result is a significant determinant of a candidate’s effectiveness in the workplace, as well as his compatibility to survive the harshest of the conditions.

Case on Point: A Steel Factory Flocked with Unfit Workers

After a month of deployment of a bulk of Filipino workers to a steel company in Qatar, the management complained of the number of accidents happening each day despite the specialized skill training, strict supervision, and safety policies being imposed. Each accident cost them a lot. Apart from the financial assistance they provide, impediment of processes caused serious harm to their operations.

The owner finally decided to reevaluate their medical status as he suspected that their negligence and proneness to accident might be caused by something their company may not have control.

After evaluation, more than half of the newly-deployed employees failed the medical exam. Some workers were found to be obese, diabetic, anemic, and high-blood, while a big slice even has liver and lung diseases. Some are even over-age to their prescribed age during recruitment. The client company got back to the responsible recruitment agency, but the latter insisted that they could no longer do something about it since they were already deployed and have been working for a month in their factory. They insisted the legitimacy of their medical certificate and the contract they were bound to follow.

To lessen safety issues and possible legal complications in case of serious accidents that may possibly happen with the kind of workers they have, the client company seek an agency from the country to assist in resolving their dilemma.

Rensol’s Intermediation and Emergency Substitution

The client company sought the help of another recruitment agency to aid this serious human resource problem. When the case was presented before Rensol, it was made under study and it was concluded that the company was misled by their former partner recruiters when the bulk of deployed employees were confirmed to be unfit to work even before their deployment.

Under investigation, their medical exam was forced to be conducted in an unaccredited clinic by the Gulf Cooperation Council-(GCC) Accredited Medical Clinics Association (GAMCA). Papers of their medical results even suggested that some details were forged and manipulated. Rensol was easy to conclude that this is a clear ground for revocation due to non-compliance with the rules and regulations set by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).

Rensol reported the incident to POEA and the partnership of the two were soon dissolved. Unfit workers, whose lives may just be put in danger with the hazardous environment of a steel manufacturing, were subjected to repatriation.

Because of the immediate need to fill in the large gap of vacated slots, the client company decided to affiliate with Rensol to replace the ill agency and to continue the disrupted partnership to aid in their manpower needs.

With Rensol’s proven track record in the easy, convenient, and fast processing of accreditation documents and their sound relationship with the government, the process was expedited, and recruitment was even started earlier than expected.

The first batch of deployment of legitimately fit-to-work workers was made successful in a short span of time.  With Rensol’s strict compliance with the Rules and Regulations on recruitment processes provided by POEA, the steel company was able to equip its manpower with highly-competitive and qualified workers and medically fit ones that can survive the inevitable health hazards.
