Recruiting the Right Team

Our client is a global provider of innovative supply chain solutions for companies in the aerospace, defense, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries. As part of a recent merger, the company decided to expand its shared services center in Chihuahua, Mexico, and hire an additional 35 resources in 3 months.

Client Challenges

  • Misunderstanding of the compensation needed to hire the right talent

  • Inadequate use of existing search tools limiting the pool of candidates

  • Inefficient selection process leading to delays in hiring, often losing candidates to other companies

  • Lack of candidate pipeline management leading to duplication of efforts and missed opportunities to hire resources

  • Absence of a standard, data-driven, candidate grading system to evaluate all candidates under the same criteria

  • Aggressive timeline to complete the hiring process for all 35 resources
