Online recruitment specialists HR Connexions have successfully partnered Emerald Group Publishing, with their recent employee growth.
Since moving to their new purpose built premises in Bingley, West Yorkshire, Emerald Group Publishing have expanded their company with an additional 18 members of staff.
HR Connexions have been instrumental in ensuring that they attract and recruit quality personnel.
As a rapidly expanding business, Emerald Group Publishing was aiming to reduce its recruitment costs as well as ensure a simple and effective recruitment process.

In addition they had also used popular online Job boards and other online recruitment companies but with limited success.
HR Connexions were able to provide Emerald Group Publishing with an alternative e-recruitment solution to assist in their recruitment requirements whilst keeping costs under control.
Essentially, HR Connexions ensured maximum response to online recruitment advertising by utilising their specialist expertise in the managing of job board websites and its in-depth knowledge of which sites would work best for the company’s individual requirements.
By tailoring the online recruitment service offered, HR Connexions has ensured that Emerald Group Publishing attracted more quality applicants from having wider internet coverage and a more targeted approach for specific vacancies.
