Recruiting & Hiring Challenges
This company’s operations are global with its headquarters based in Japan. They identified a need for a strategic and long-term partner for US and Canadian hiring, as their internal program was struggling to cover the varied nature and overall volume of positions. This, coupled with operating in areas where the candidate market was very challenging, left them with a gap in hiring that their internal team was unable to cover.
Up to this point, contract recruiters had been used, but the quality and consistency of work was not satisfactory. These contract resources were hard to retain, and they never completely became part of the team. After an RFP, they chose to partner with Advanced RPO to allow for a broad scope of recruiting expertise, a dedicated team, and a focus on partnership to drive continuous improvements.
How Advanced RPO Addressed Challenges
The best RPO partnerships start with a focused implementation. The implementation team at Advanced RPO worked closely with the client stakeholders to understand current state, processes, and any hiring nuances in order to map out the ideal future state. This implementation also included detailed change management that set the tone for the partnership, as well as the enculturation of the Advanced RPO team so they can act as a direct extension of the client. The output of implementation was a detailed and client specific standard operating procedure (SOP) manual that allows Advanced RPO to provide repeatable results across all hiring.
To support the client, a dedicated team of recruiters was aligned, along with a scalable support team to provide flexibility and ensure quick candidate responses. This flexibility and scalability are crucial to cover all US and Canadian hires across all levels of roles ranging from hourly warehousing to sales, to automation and engineering.
As the partnership progresses, Advanced RPO continues to improve the relationship between talent acquisition and the business. This includes flexing resources aligned to them by up to 50% at times, to account for increases and decreases in hiring needs. It also includes working with the client to optimize their ATS to provide more strategic reporting capabilities that can fuel key decisions along with providing data for continuous improvement efforts.
