The Hays Talent Bank is available to all NHS trusts through the new LPP framework agreement and will help trusts to reduce their costs, improve management information and reduce reliance on external agency staff. Hays will deliver the service through dedicated account management teams, utilising their innovative workforce management technology system.
Hays is one of only six managed service providers awarded a place on the framework, which runs until August 2013. The Talent Bank offers access to a flexible talent pool, which is managed by Hays, enabling trusts to quickly and cost effectively match their staffing requirements against constantly changing demands.
Paul Mallinson, director at Hays, comments: “As a prominent supplier to the NHS and with more than 16 years’ experience delivering resource management solutions to both private and public sector clients, we are delighted to have been awarded a place on the framework. The Hays Talent Bank is an important development, particularly given the challenging economic environment we are all faced with, given that the need to identify and implement cost savings and efficiency improvements has never been greater. The Hays Talent Bank provides the NHS with access to a range of proven solutions we have developed with some of the world’s most successful organisations, offering trusts the flexibility they need to support their changing workforce needs, while helping to drive efficiencies and cost savings.”
