InsulPro, a New Zealand manufacturer of polyester insulation , is working with Work and Income to support the local South Auckland community.
Traditionally, InsulPro’s recruitment of production staff was fairly conventional until December 2009 when one of the production staff suggested contacting Work and Income offer businesses quick, easy and no-cost recruitment services through a dedicated Work Broker.
Together, InsulPro and Work and Income embarked on a recruitment plan for production staff at the East Tamaki insulation plant.
The process is made simple for InsulPro as Work and Income screen the initial candidates and only present people fit for the available position. Work and Income also provide in-work support available for both employee and InsulPro, which is invaluable.
When recruiting, Alex Davies (Auckland Factory Manager) assesses candidates using a number of criteria but the overwhelming motivation is “If someone wants to work, let’s give them a chance – and Work and Income helps achieve this.”
“Working alongside Work and Income has provided a number of valuable employees for InsulPro, who have since been promoted and received recognition for their work” said Alex.
InsulPro’s philosophy is around:
