With nearly 63,000 homes, transforming over 100,000 lives, they are experts in social housing, homeownership, veteran services, retirement living, and supported housing. 

Business Challenge

The Social housing company’s HR team realised that to fully leverage the capabilities of Oracle HCM, they needed to hire additional HR professionals for testing their newly integrated solution, and a team that can help them with the support solution. However, recruiting the right candidates with relevant experience was a significant challenge due to the specialised nature of the requirements. 
The client found it strenuous to attract and retain top talent in this area due to limited access to qualified Oracle professionals in a competitive job market. This impacted on their ability to fill positions quickly and efficiently, increasing recruitment costs.


The Social Housing Company decided to partner with Payrollcloud to help them find and hire consultants with experience in Oracle HCM. Payrollcloud leveraged its network and expertise to identify qualified candidates and conducted a rigorous screening process to ensure that they meet the client’s requirements.


The partnership with Payrollcloud proved to be an accomplishment for the client. PCL was able to identify and onboard consultants within three weeks of signing the contract, all of whom had extensive experience in Oracle HCM. As a result, they got Oracle-certified HR professionals that integrated their HRIS and a team that helped them with the support solution.  

RecruitEase provided Real-Time Data and Insights into clients Recruitment Operations, allowing them to identify areas for improvement, track the effectiveness of their staffing efforts, and make data-driven decisions.
RecruitEase’s targeted recruitment marketing campaigns and employer branding initiatives assisted the client in attracting and retaining top talent with Oracle-related skills and experience, despite a competitive job market. 

Facts and Figures

Payrollcloud screened more than 92 candidates before identifying the top consultants with the right skills and experience having worked on several implementations. 

The partnership with PCL saved the client’s an estimated 20% in recruiting costs compared to conducting the search in-house. 

The additional HR professionals hired through the PCL’s assistance helped the client achieve a 15% improvement in employee retention rates and a 25% reduction in time-to-hire for new employees.
