FLAWLESS COMMITMENT AND ENGAGEMENT
"DHL is an international courier, parcel, and express mail service which is a division of the German logistics company Deutsche Post DHL. Deutsche Post DHL is the world’s largest logistics company, now in over 220 countries and territories worldwide, The company was founded in the United States in 1969 and expanded its service throughout the world by the late 1970s. The company was primarily interested in offshore and intercontinental deliveries, but the success of FedEx prompted their own intra-US expansion starting in 1983.
DHL first engaged with Kenect Recruitment back in 2014. Their professional approach and determination for quality and success soon helped in establishing themselves as one of DHL’s main suppliers within the East Midlands.
In 2018 we offered potential recruitment partners the opportunity to tender for our business on a national level. Kenect Recruitment became one of only 20 recruitment partners throughout the whole UK that joined that panel and continue to supply today. Kenect now supports us in over 15 locations through England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We would recommend using Kenect Recruitment to other companies. Their commitment and engagement when working with multiple sites, Directors and staff has been flawless."
A PARTNERSHIP THAT LASTS
The service level we have received from Kenect Recruitment has been of the highest standard.
We as a company have put a lot of pressure on Kenect to supply a mass amount of drivers for our major contracts with a high expectation of the standards and quality we required.
As always with agency drivers we expect to get quite a few that are not to the level we require, however surprisingly the majority of drivers were to our high standards which isn’t something that happens very often.
All in all… Kenect would be the perfect choice for companies looking for a specialist national supplier. I have no complaints or issues with the service provided by Kenect and will certainly be using them for all recruitment (new / current) business moving forward.
RELIABLE FRIENDLY SERVICE
We have dealt with many agencies before we established a relationship with Kenect Recruitment. We used to get let down and get told stories of how staff were unavailable and the reliability had a real impact on the business during peak periods.
There is nothing that I can fault Kenect Recruitment on, and their service levels have exceeded expectations set by previous agencies that I have used. Everything from the response time, honesty and quality of staff has been exceptional. When I first started using Kenect, I was anxious about what was to come with using a new agency, however the transition was made simple by the professional and friendly staff at Kenect, and as such the inductions were arranged seamlessly and soon it felt like we had always used them as our agency of choice.
Our business has fast changing requirements, sometimes with additional staff needing to be booked in later at night, someone has always been there to answer the phone no matter what time I call and I have belief in the Burton team that they will fulfil any additional requirements that I need. Kenect would be an ideal choice for companies looking for local, or nationwide staffing support.
I would recommend them to any company looking for a reliable and honest agency. I have complete faith that all new/ current business will be sent Kenect Recruitment’s way!
