Halifax Works (www.halifaxworks.co.uk) offer information, advice and guidance services to people from the local community on accessing training and learning materials to help them gain employment. Halifax Works also assists employers in the recruitment and selection process to help them find the most appropriate candidate. They currently have offices based in North Halifax and Hebden Bridge.
Halifax Works required an adaptable and flexible database system which could hold diverse business and client intelligence to support a picture for economic development in the district of Calderdale. They also needed a solution developing that was integrated with their database and had the ability to match personal attributes with the desire attributes of a job vacancy, that was also user-friendly to staff and public using the system. Accessibility from the web was also required to help them interact with their clients more efficiently by allowing them to register and up-date their own profiles online.
PPD Computing worked in partnership with Halifax Works to construct a personalised integrated system which met CMBC IT guidelines, and was user-friendly for employees and clients. The CLIM8 solution we provided for Halifax Works is continually evolving with them to meet arising business challenges. We also developed the CLIM8 Job Search module to perfectly meet their current recruitment challenge. CLIM8 Reports and CLIM8 Projects have proved to be invaluable tools which has enabled them to track diverse schemes simply and quickly with full team involvement, while the web access has enabled them to move into broader markets.
"After working with PPD for over 15 years, I have found them very adaptable, understanding of our needs and flexible to address tight timescales and moving goalposts”
