Agreement will run across five years as Minstrell Recruitment adopts Nodal's blockchain-powered platform
Nodal Labs, the world's first blockchain-powered freelance marketplace, has today announced a £250m partnership deal with Minstrell Recruitment, which will streamline its talent recruitment processes.
One of the UK's leading recruitment companies, Minstrell Recruitment is a specialist in the provisioning of temporary and permanent employees across the construction, facility management and building services sectors. Running for five years, the deal will see Minstrell utilising Nodal's fully-automated talent platform to expedite the recruitment and employee on-boarding process for some of the company's biggest clients.
The decision to partner with Nodal is already forecasted to help Minstrell Recruitment achieve a major reduction in its administrative burden – serving to speed up and simplify the talent placement process.
With a custom-built blockchain at the core of the Nodal platform, all records and transactions can be verified and tracked – ensuring an immutable and transparent record of activity. Candidate validation – a traditionally challenging and time-consuming process – can be done once, with the data readily accessible from a decentralised ledger whenever a client wants to see it.
Similarly, as a fully end-to-end solution – from talent identification through to timesheets and invoicing, and beyond into payment – Nodal offers a single-view of all processes, allowing everything to be fully integrated. The benefit is obvious: with timesheets instantly reconciled against invoices, and payroll on-boarding time significantly reduced.
With admin automated, Minstrell Recruitment's consultants will have more time to discover new talent, helping to ensure that clients have access to outstanding candidates whenever they need them.
