RPO Australia Testimonials

Johnson & Johnson Medical

“As we reach the ten year anniversary of our Recruitment Processing Outsourcing partnership with Hudson, I'd like to thank the Hudson team for truly making a difference to the Johnson & Johnson Medical business in Australia.

Hudson consistently demonstrate excellence in recruitment process and have been instrumental in improving the capability of our line leaders via recruitment and management training. Since commencing our partnership, we have improved against every best practice recruiting metric - 'time to fill', 'quality of hire' and the engagement of managers in competency based interviewing techniques. The team have recruited over 400 employees and engaged directly with thousands of candidates on behalf of JJM. Hudson have also been key contributors to the development and execution of our employee value proposition.

Our model has continuously developed over time and was expanded to the J&J pharmaceutical business, Janssen Cilag, in 2005, again delivering similarly impressive results. In addition, the introduction of 'Hotjobs' advertising across all Johnson & Johnson companies in Australia is a further innovation that has facilitated talent mobility across sectors and greater transparency of opportunities for our employees.

As partners in delivering our HR agenda, Hudson have been flexible and supportive of our HR team throughout our relationship. Most recently, I hired one of the senior Hudson resources as an HR business partner in our team, yet another example of the successful support Hudson brings to our business.

Our partnership with Hudson was the first of its kind in Australia and the experiment has truly paid off. Our relationship has been seamless throughout, and the Hudson team are fully integrated into our business as strategic partners.”

“Hudson RPO partners with me on a range of initiatives, showing great creativity and a positive problem-solving approach. They should be very proud to have such an excellent group of professionals working for them.”

"In May 2008, Hudson RPO implemented a recruitment solution into sanofi-aventis to manage recruitment across Australia and New Zealand.

Prior to this solution, we were placing 20% of our roles through our internal team and 80% of our roles via recruitment agencies. Within the first 3 months, the team turned this around and we now place 60% of roles directly. Hudson deployed an extremely high calibre onsite team, and ran a seamless implementation and change management process, which ensured that the team achieved the desired service levels very quickly.

Sanofi-aventis has enjoyed the opportunity to work with the Hudson team to create innovation in our talent acquisition, and we looking forward to continuing this successful partnership in the future.”

Bank of Queensland

“The Bank of Queensland and Hudson RPO have been partnering for six months, deploying a best practice recruitment solution across the BOQ Group.

A key objective of this solution was to increase employee retention. Since its inception the Hudson Managed Service Solution has exceeded all SLA's, and has also worked with my team to achieve a decrease in our annualised turnover by 5%.

We are now working together to create a best practice recruitment solution, which will deliver the highest quality talent within the industry to meet the Bank’s vision for the future.”

“Hudson, as Perpetual's on-site recruitment provider has developed trusted adviser status across our business, delivering high levels of client service and quality outcomes. These outcomes are attributable to the Hudson team's professionalism, persistence and tenacity. With a continuous improvement focus, our dedicated team now fill 83% of all roles directly. We are delighted with the partnership.”

Janine Stewart
Group Executive People & Culture


“Medibank partnered with Hudson to provide talent and support to assist in addressing the poor retention of new starters. Hudson met the challenge of implementing a solution in an organisation that did not have a centralised recruitment function. The team has integrated into the Medibank culture and provides quality support to our Hiring Managers and Human Resources Business Partners. We are confident Hudson will assist Medibank to achieve its talent attraction and retention objectives and look forward to continued development of the partnership.”

“Let me start by saying that I have been very impressed with the team's dedication, the long hours they put in on our behalf, and the seamless way they have integrated themselves into our team.

The results of the recruiting effort so far have been exemplary: There have been outstanding contributions all the way around… Hiring the best is the first and probably most important step in building a world class team and I am glad to have a world class team to help us through this.

I want to especially mention Evelyn who inspires a lot of trust in me personally as someone who is a true partner.

Thanks from the our team and look forward to continuing to work together to create something very special in Shanghai and Pune.”
