Network Rail

Industry: Rail infrastructure and Asset Management

Founded: 2002

Headquarter: London, United Kingdom

Nationwide Building Society is a British mutual financial institution, the seventh largest cooperative financial institution and the largest building society in the world with over 15 million members.

Nationwide is now the second largest provider of household savings and mortgages in the UK. For the financial year 2015/2016, Nationwide had assets of around £208.9 billion compared to £331 billion for the entire building society sector, making it larger than the remaining 44 British building societies combined.


Network Rail needed to examine the rail industry at a skill level and expand beyond using current data sources that only recognised people that worked for them using their own job titles.

By Implementing Horsefly

Using their strongest employees as a guide they reviewed a variety of profiles in existing social networking sites to gain a view of their internal workforce.

Armed with this information they used Horsefly to map out important analysis on: salary alignment, length of experience, job titles by region, target list of companies and skills that this talent pool have. This information was presented to the HR Leadership team to provide insight for planning new roles.
