Partner with de Poel to save money
As the UK’s largest procurer of contingent labour, with relationships with in excess of 3,500 recruitment agencies, de Poel’s leverage within the recruitment industry ensures that clients are charged the best rates at all times.
We can negotiate significantly better rates from the agencies we use and a typical client can save hundreds of thousands of pounds within a year of partnering with de Poel – our case studies show this.
Implementation of the company’s e-tips® system curtails the potential for contract leakage. As a result, de Poel has a proven track record of reducing recruitment agency spend by up to 12%.
This lower spend goes hand in hand with improved quality of candidates, due to regular auditing of our supplier agencies, and more streamlined administration processes which brings about further savings where you least expect them.
The time and cost involved in the time-sheeting and invoicing of clients’ temporary staff can be significantly reduced by using e-tips®, our electronic timesheet and invoice processing system which removes the need for paper-based timesheets and invoices and drastically cuts down on administration.
Real-time information to inform decision-making
In a large organisation it’s often difficult to keep abreast of which roles have been filled and where. Client control over their use of temporary staff is always de Poel’s primary objective.
From this position, instead of retrospectively reviewing where temporary labour has been employed, by whom and how much it has cost, organisations can use real-time information that informs decisions around current and future demand and subsequent spend.
This allows for control, leverage and accurate forecasting and budgeting which can only benefit a business.
Thanks to de Poel’s innovative technology, all aspects of contingent labour activity can be analysed by location, region, job category and supplier – and necessary adjustments to planned usage made accordingly. e-tips® provides a wealth of management information which helps hiring managers to understand exactly where they are placing candidates and better manage their vacancies.
At every point, from hiring temporary staff to dealing with timesheets and invoicing, the process is made clear, transparent and efficient.
By working with de Poel, HR departments and senior managers can report on their temporary employee requirements, usage and spend quickly and accurately thanks to the information e-tips® provides. This cuts down on the amount of time spent on administration, time that can be better spent on other areas of their business.

Visibility and Control
In a large organisation it’s often difficult to keep abreast of which roles have been filled and where and control for clients over their contingent labour usage is always one of de Poel’s primary objectives. Instead of reviewing retrospectively where temporary workers have been employed and how much it has cost, organisations can use real-time information that allows for accurate decision-making around current and future demand and subsequent spend. This gives improved control over forecasting and budgeting for temporary staff.
All aspects of contingent labour activity can be analysed by location, region, job category and supplier – and necessary adjustments to planned usage made accordingly.
The UK has seen a swathe of recent legislation which has compounded the need for those involved in the provision and management of temporary, contract and interim workers to be up-to-date with the law and diligent in its application.
Beyond the recent obligations placed upon hirers and intermediaries from the Agency Worker Regulations (AWR) and the Pensions Act and Real Time Information (RTI), the effects of new legislation governing the use of on-shore and off-shore intermediaries will add to the due diligence requirements of those at the head of the supply chain.
The nature of a temporary workforce and the requirements to keep records on all aspects of engagement for given periods of time, place additional record-keeping requirements on all hiring managers involved in their supply.
Automation of these processes has become a pre-requisite and is embedded within de Poel’s innovative and comprehensive e-tips® solution. Our clients are able to predict the cost of a range of scenarios around the future use of workers, while ensuring compliance before hiring decisions are made.
de Poel’s solutions are underpinned by a unique timesheet and invoice management system – e-tips®. From a process administration perspective, e-tips® delivers web-based electronic timesheet and invoice processing that leads to significant indirect cost savings and more efficient resource allocation. All de Poel’s clients receive a single, weekly, consolidated invoice meaning significant savings in time and cost. Additionally, clients have real-time access to transactional data on which to base informed decision-making.
Long-term business relationships are built on trust, great service and by continuously adding value to enhance delivery outcomes. As testament to this, de Poel is proud of having relationships with clients that span over a decade. Our operational teams are built around the principle of delivering continuous improvement.
Wherever sensitivities allow, the company proactively shares its learnings across its operational teams to ensure all clients benefit from internal and external best practice.
Additionally, de Poel runs an extensive programme of research for the benefit of all clients to generate additional insights around market activities, trends and to further support clients’ decision-making.
