Change keeps many of today's industry-leading companies lean and competitive. In today's dynamic market, restructuring and reducing in-house recruitment staffs have become business as usual. While having a small recruitment staff may have a positive impact on the bottom line, it can limit the bandwidth needed to manage a spike in recruitment needs. So companies are finding innovative solutions to maintain quality, scalability and flexibility in hiring during times of change.
An industry-leading logistics company recently reduced its in-house recruitment staff by 40 percent. Shortly after this restructuring, a seasonal hiring variation kicked in that required a massive hiring initiative beyond the scope of the limited recruiting staff and existing technology and infrastructure. Needing to make the hires quickly, there wasn't time to implement complex new solutions.Strategy
Instead, the company partnered with HRworks. They worked closely together to create and execute a recruitment strategy that leveraged the client's existing technology, maximized existing recruitment resources, and took advantage of HRworks' ability to scale rapidly. The client continued to recruit in as many markets as it could manage effectively with its internal team, and HRworks was given exclusive recruitment responsibilities for the remaining markets.
HRworks provided the client with a single point of contact, helping to ensure the project and candidate quality were on-target enterprise-wide. HRworks managed the entire recruitment channel from vacancy through onboarding.
HRworks not only focused on providing candidates to meet the immediate seasonal challenge, it improved the client's existing process to create a long-term solution to meet future seasonal hiring variations.Results
