Initially, a single contractor recommended DASA Umbrella to the team at Unity Recruitment having been delighted with the personal and prompt service he received. Over time, further contractor referrals came to the attention of James Gouge, Unity's CEO With DASA Umbrella now on the radar, an exploratory meeting between James and Naks Atheeq, DASA's Head of Finance, cemented the relationship between the two companies.
Impressed by Naks' pro-active attitude and positivity, the team of consultants at Unity began sending more contractor referrals to DASA. In a comparatively short time, DASA's renowned customer service levels and reliable payroll runs ensured that they became one of Unity's preferred umbrella partners.
The best organisations look after their clients and maintain meaningful relationships with their contacts as in the case of Naks who visits Unity's offices in Watford every month. He has forged an understanding with James based on trust and empathy, in addition to developing a respectful rapport with the agencies' team of consultants.
These relationships are supported by the performance of DASA payroll and operations team who strive to meet the requirements of up to 150 contractors paid via their umbrella solution on a weekly basis. The contractors benefit from prompt and accurate payments, plus free access to the DASA Rewards programme where they can save money on an array of consumer goods and services including supermarket shopping, fuel and gym memberships, plus restaurants, cinemas and even eye tests.
The partnership between DASA and Unity has strengthened over time and both companies are now instrumental to the success of their respective businesses. Loyalty and honesty are central facets of the commercial relationship as highlighted by the following quote graciously provided by James himself:
"We trust DASA Umbrella to manage the payroll on behalf of many of our public sector council contractors, and they have become an integral element of our worker supply chain. Unity Recruitment is an expanding recruitment agency brand, and we need to be confident that all our professional suppliers are both fully compliant and ethical in their business dealings with us. We have regular meetings to ensure that the needs of our contractors are being met, and also to manage all facets of our commercial relationship. It is a pleasure to work with the DASA team and to witness their growth at first hand."
Within the all too often cut-throat environment of the umbrella payroll landscape, it is refreshing to document a genuinely flourishing business relationship between two ambitious organisations committed to excellence and growth.
