How is our managed service different to seat leasing?
Good question. Seat leasing offers people, an office and PC for your people, and HR and payroll support. From there:
You direct and manage your people day to day
You document your end to end processes
You train, coach and develop the team
You manage productivity and quality
You define and manage reporting requirements
You manage leave and downtime
You manage employee engagement
And you do all of this from Australia…unless you plan to move to the Philippines. Our fully managed services are like day to seat leasing’s night. We provide dedicated people backed by the full spectrum of support, management and expertise to ensure that your objectives are met. We work closely with you to understand your business and your processes and then build and manage a team around them. We select the right people for the job and ensure that they get the support and are engaged to so that we retain them. In most instances, we expect to improve productivity and quality when compared to the same function being performed onshore. Simply put; with seat leasing you pay for people, with hammerjack you pay for results.
