Labor Law Compliance 

Our client is a global provider of innovative supply chain solutions for companies in the aerospace, defense, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries. The Mexican Government updated its labor and social security laws, limiting the use of subcontracted (“outsourced”) employees, and provided companies a 90-day limit to be in compliance with the new regulations.  This change severely impacted the operations of our client and engaged Nepanoa to find a solution.

Client Challenges

  • Need to complete the hiring process of ~400 outsourced employees in less than 45 days. 

  • Ignorance of the new labor law in Mexico.

  • Harmonization of benefits and compensation packages for all new and existing employees.

  • Manage communications and decisions through nearly 600 communication channels with stakeholders located in various cities across the United States, United Kingdom, Poland, and Mexico.

  • Absence of standard, automated, and online tools to manage human resources.

  • Lack of recruitment, hiring, and retention processes.
