Recruitment consultancy Hyams has launched Equation HR, a new web-based division that helps insurers manage and monitor their human resources performance.
Equation will advise insurers on how best to manage their existing staff and ensure that their skills are exploited to the full.
The new division is based on an internet package that lets insurers' HR department managers monitor the effectiveness of their recruitment supply chain.
The team will be headed up by Iain Small who was previously a consultant for Robert Walters.
Small insisted that the fact that the service has been created by the recruitment consultancy will not bias its reporting.
He said: “Our credibility rests on being impartial. Our clients would not want to enter into a “Trojan Horse” arrangement where they get a master vendor.
“The whole point about this service is looking at resources and making sure people's skills are used fully.”
Once the system is in place, Equation will place a team of consultants in the insurers' offices to help manage their human resources.
