Peoplebank, Asia Pacific’s leading talent solutions provider, has been named an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) for 2019. This marks the 7th consecutive year the company has been recognised for its initiatives to drive gender equality. 

The WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation is intended to inspire, recognise and endorse active commitment to accomplishing gender equality in Australian workplaces.

Passionate about learning and development programs

Peoplebank creates an inclusive environment for its employees by enabling flexible working options across the organization, regardless of gender or parental status. On top of this Peoplebank is passionate about learning and development programs which allow all employees equal opportunities to stand out and advance their career within the business.

Furthermore, there are strong initiatives to eliminate unconscious bias in the hiring process. For example, Peoplebank’s candidates, contractors and clients benefit from the company’s use of a job ad ‘gender decoder’, to ensure gender neutral job ads.

Peoplebank also gives full support to employees who want to run events which aim to aid awareness and change in gender diversity, particularly concerning attracting and excelling women in the IT industry.

Chandler Macleod Group and Peoplebank Australia are joining forces. The combined entities will be known as the Chandler Macleod Group. Peoplebank continues to operate under its own name and with its IT/Digital specialization.

Together the two companies form the perfect platform for ongoing talent solutions leadership in every market and region the group operates in across the Asia Pacific.

Part of Recruit Global Staffing

Both Chandler Macleod, one of the region’s largest employers, and Peoplebank, the leading IT and digital specialist talent solutions provider, were acquired by Recruit Holdings Co. Ltd. four years ago. Until now Chandler Macleod and Peoplebank have operated and reported independently into this unit despite having similar operations and locations throughout Australia and the Asia Pacific.

One company ready for sustained future growth

Recruit Global Staffing is confident that the time is right to bring these two very good companies together, creating a truly great industry leader which is ready for sustained future growth. The best of both organisations will be combined, enabling enhanced service capability to customers across the Australian and Asia Pacific markets. Recruit Global Staffing’s CEO, Rob Zandbergen: “It will deliver advantages through both scale and process enhancement, allowing business units to focus on further delighting their customers. It’s an exciting time for everyone involved.”

‘A transnational opportunity’

Longstanding Peoplebank CEO Peter Acheson will lead Chandler Macleod Group as Chief Executive Officer. “This is a transformational opportunity to create a significant, market leading business. We can leverage the two companies’ best practices in service offering, people, brand, learning and development, IT systems and industry best processes”.

A shared mission

Together Chandler Macleod and Peoplebank will contribute to Recruit’s mission to make the world faster, simpler, closer, and helping people to aspire to their purpose in life. Staff, clients and candidates alike can look forward not only to a faster, simpler and closer customer experience, but also to benefiting from enhanced solutions, greater opportunity, more efficiency and more innovation.

Peoplebank has started on a journey to become Asia Pacific’s leading talent solutions provider. Peoplebank wants to have reached this goal by 2021.

‘Close to the summit’

Peoplebank’s CEO Peter Acheson calls this mission ‘a journey to a distant summit’. “We have the opportunity to transition from a very good company to a great company.” In an inspiring video Acheson asks the employees of Peoplebank and subsidiary company Porterallen ‘what they would do if they were close to scaling their summit’.

The lighthouse brand

By 2021 Peoplebank wants to be the lighthouse brand in Asia Pacific’s staffing industry. The company aims to be the chosen thought leader in talent solutions, an established provider in SOW and MSP/RPO, with a reputation for having the most dedicated, knowledgeable and professional employees in the market.

‘Open and enthusiastic’

In a world reshaped by technology Peoplebank seeks to further increase its interactions with its brand and to distribute more talent solutions content across digital marketing channels. Acheson: “We see a potential in Peoplebank and in our employees. We can reach our summit if all of us stand up with open and enthusiastic hearts and take the necessary steps to reach your own extraordinary potentials.”

Peoplebank’s 3 year plan to become Asia Pacific’s leading talent solutions provider inspired Acheson in directing a motivating video for the company.
