Strategic Workforce Planning Case Study

When Medibank, Australia's publicly funded universal health care system, embarked on a company-wide initiative to improve employee retention and engagement they turned to Hudson RPO for the solution.

Medibank's Challenge

In 2007, Medibank had limited recruitment, assessment and workforce planning strategies. Recruitment was decentralised and reactive with over 100 suppliers. Medibank’s HR had no way of accurately measuring their costs, time to fill and quality of hires. A key concern was also that their staff turnover for less than 12 months service was at 53%.

Hudson RPO Workforce Planning Solution

In 2007, Medibank selected Hudson RPO to assist in attracting and retaining great talent. We began by implementing a national onsite solution covering the corporate, customer service and retail business units. The solution was to cover all permanent roles up to $200K.

Hudson RPO now has a team of 8 recruitment specialists nationally operating out of Melbourne and Brisbane living and breathing the Medibank culture. This is an end to end solution, underpinned by a customised technology solution, covering internal and external recruitment. The team is focused on reducing employee turnover, improving candidate quality, effective sourcing, increasing the recruitment capability of hiring managers and reducing costs.

Hudson RPO Results

Feedback from hiring managers and candidates indicates high levels of satisfaction with quality of process and outcomes. Overall, Medibank acknowledges that the Careers @ Medibank solution has made a fundamental difference to their business, demonstrated by our ability to exceed contractual KPIs and deliver superior business results.
