Case Study: More Success, Less Effort

Imagination Technologies, a global tech pioneer, faced several challenges in their talent operation, including long lead times for skills in high demand, high employee turnover, and a costly recruitment process. To address these challenges, they turned to Headnetics.

After a comprehensive assessment of Imagination's operations across Europe, Asia, and the USA, the team developed a transformative talent strategy. The solution included an agile hiring methodology, advanced candidate assessment practices, and employer brand upgrades as well as an EVP and a refreshed onboarding experience. The results were impressive - Imagination Technologies achieved hiring targets twice as fast, halved costs, and doubled employee retention.

Michele Byron, HR Director, praised Headnetic's work, citing increased savings of £1.3M a year. She also noted that the company now hires hundreds of highly sought-after tech professionals across three continents in half the time it used to take.

Brigid Smith, Senior Director Engineering Operations, credited Nick's expertise in engineering and hiring for the astounding results. Jamie Broome, Senior Director, praised Headnetic's for taking the company's strategic ambitions and creating an operational reality that continues to add value.

Headnetics offers businesses the opportunity to unlock tremendous potential and compete for and retain the best talent by leveraging the expertise of a partner who has done it all before.
