Recruiting Agility & Flexibility for a Nationwide Distribution Center

An inability to attract and retain talent within the company’s distribution centers was affecting their overall business by causing inconsistent inventory levels on the store level.

Their local HR teams were tasked with recruiting for these centers, and when they ran into troubles, the corporate HR team was not able to provide support.

Initially, Advanced RPO was brought in to cover excess recruiting needs in a single distribution facility.

“Advanced RPO has contributed significantly to our company’s ability to be staffed and service our customers. Their team is responsive, flexible, communicative, and action-oriented.”

At the onset of the partnership, Advanced RPO began recruiting for the initial distribution facility and quickly brought a level of recruitment expertise and scalability that did not exist internally.

The success was quickly recognized by other distribution facilities and since our initial launch in 2020, we now provide recruiting support to 15 of the company’s distribution centers. The recruiting support provided is based on agility with each location being able to come to Advanced when recruiting needs outpace internal capabilities.

“Advanced RPO has been a great partner. They proactively identify problems, recommend solutions, and continue to be flexible to achieve results. They’re communicative and professional. “
