Seven Resourcing supplies staff across eight core sectors, and played a pivotal role in supplying crucial temporary health and social care staff to the front line during the fight against Covid-19.
- With the arrival of Covid-19 in early 2020, Seven’s health and social care divisions were inundated with requests from the UK’s leading health and social care services for key workers. This piled huge pressure on its compliance and payroll teams.
- All major UK healthcare organisations use paper timesheets, and manually inputting them was creating huge pressure on the company. In response, Seven’s MD and team of compliance experts devised a groundbreaking piece of payroll software called PayTech. Automatically sending, storing and processing timesheets with minimal effort, and all on one digital platform, PayTech has revolutionised temporary recruitment in healthcare. Major healthcare organisations, such as Priory Group and Cygnet Health have adopted the technology, changing their traditional and outdated timesheet systems. There has not been a more innovative breakthrough in temporary recruitment in recent years and it is only a matter of time before the NHS move away from their current, outdated system, towards a more secure, effective and convenient alternative in PayTech.
- Due to the challenging nature of temporary work during the pandemic, in the early days candidates were desperate for PPE. To alleviate the pressure on their temps, Seven’s team worked late into the nights and through long weekends to source PPE and create ‘Hero Boxes’ for every one of their temporary workers, packed with high-quality goggles, FFP3 masks, isopropyl spray, antibacterial gel, a box of gloves, bacterial wipes, pens, and a reusable mug as well as plenty of small treats. Seven also delivered them to local NHS hospitals as a token of appreciation for their hard work.
