Brunel select Keystone Talent Bank

Brunel University London is the latest higher education institute to select Keystone Talent Bank to help improve and modernise their systems for managing temporary workers.

Following a competitive tender process Keystone Talent Bank was selected to provide an electronic timesheet solution to Brunel University London, which adds greater control, accountability and efficiency to the payment of temporary and contingent workers.

Brunel University London is one of the most innovative universities in the United Kingdom and had a strong desire to move to a modern and online solution for its temporary workers.

Keystone Talent Bank is a leading provider of online recruitment solutions to the education sector, and its cloud based Talent Bank portal provides a one-stop-shop solution for the management of workers, their compliance and payroll. Whilst Brunel has primarily procured the Talent Bank services for timesheet purposes, the technology allows for simple bolt-ons to the service later on.

Malcolm Paice, COO for Keystone said: “ We are thrilled that Brunel joins our other university and education clients in harnessing the benefits that our Talent Bank solution brings. Brunel Talent Bank will make it far easier for workers to complete and update their time sheets on time, whilst managers now have a less burdensome way to approve timesheets and manage their workers.”

Keystone’s cloud based Talent Bank is being deployed across the UK in a number of organisations and an ever rising number of colleges and universities. The system is popular in the education sector as it reduces the reliance on costly external agencies and also enables a university to create a bespoke talent pool that includes its own students.

The Talent Bank technology allows an educational institute to select from a range of recruitment features, all from a single web portal, and they can simply pay for the functions they need. Services include online timesheets, worker search, selection and recruitment, temporary and permanent recruitment, external job advertising, compliance, on boarding and payroll.

The solution from Keystone provides a fully branded web portal, Brunel Talent Bank, which can be accessed by workers and managers at the university 24/7 anywhere in the world.

Julie Rees, Director, Professional Development Centre at Brunel University London commented: “We wanted to have an electronic timesheet solution that saves on time and paper processes.  Keystone’s Talent Bank provides that, with a wealth of other benefits that should, over time, give us a modern and efficient way of engaging workers at the University. There are also some clear benefits to our innovative approach towards improving student employability.”
