Collaboration for Success: iO Associates and Pinewood Join Forces for Future Growth

In 2023, iO Associates embarked on a journey with Pinewood, offering support in their recruitment journey across Software Engineering. Fast forward to 2024, and we are thrilled to announce the evolution of this partnership into a Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) partnership!

Working as an extension of Pinewood's team, iO’s bespoke RPO solution will support all permanent and contract hiring and much more. iO Associates’ RPO will allow Pinewood to control spend via a fully managed, standardised, recruitment process across throughout the company.

Pinewood's Ambitious Plans in 2024

Pinewood, established in 1981, has been a driving force in delivering innovative solutions to automotive dealers and OEMs globally. As they set their sights on exciting growth plans for 2024, the need for a strategic recruitment partner became crucial. Pinewood sought to establish a collaboration with a market specialist to not only secure top-tier talent but also enhance employer branding and streamline their hiring processes.

Enhancing the Hiring Experience

With a commitment to reducing the hiring process by an impressive 50%, as quoted by Pinewood's HR Director, our RPO solution brings efficiency and agility to Pinewood's talent acquisition strategy. At iO Associates, client experience is at the core of what we do, and this partnership exemplifies our dedication to ensuring a seamless and successful recruitment journey for Pinewood. Pinewood's culture of collaboration, coupled with their exceptional benefits aligns with iO Associates' ethos, making this a partnership built on shared values.

Pinewood's Kiran Kundra, Head of HR and Talent Management, continues:

'iO has been instrumental in streamlining our recruitment processes by introducing new ideas to the table, enabling us to effectively connect with the right talent pool. What sets our partnership with iO apart is the constructive and collaborative nature of our interactions. We have decided to partner with iO because of the quality of candidates bought to our door, the use of candidate screening tools which will give us a lot of time back, and transparent relationship we have built with the team over the past 6 month or so. We trust iO in bringing in our plans and vision to life.'

A Look into the Future: Shaping The Talent Landscape

With our specialisation in recruiting across tech, digital, engineering, and government and defence sectors, iO Associates brings a wealth of experience to the table. Our focus is on securing the best talent to support Pinewood in realising its vision of delivering a digital and modern dealer management system.

We look forward to contributing to Pinewood's continued success by exceeding their talent acquisition goals.
