Our Featured RPO Client
A rail car management company that operates across North America.
Recruiting & Hiring Challenges
This established rail car management company was over-leveraging agencies to fill their salaried corporate openings. Due to this, they were paying top-tier fees for their hires, yet not accessing the best talent. Advanced RPO provided a comprehensive talent acquisition solution for all corporate recruiting. Within a few months of executing the program, the company expanded the scope to include skilled hourly roles as well.
How Advanced RPO Addressed Challenges
Advanced RPO started by implementing an end-to-end salaried hiring process to alleviate the use of agencies and give the control of the recruiting program back to the client. This included creating a candidate focused process, centered around efficiency and quality. Partnerships were forged between the Advanced RPO team and the hiring managers, to allow a consultative approach where decisions were made based on real-time data and recruiting expertise.
As this new approach to recruiting was experienced by the client, they quickly identified additional needs for RPO assistance within their organization and added three facilities where they hired hourly skilled trades employees.
New recruiting approach led to a separate skilled trades process
A separate skilled trades process was developed and implemented to reflect the nuances and needs of those roles vs. the salaried roles. As the client entrusted Advanced RPO with these critical operational roles, delivery on the hiring needs met and exceeded their expectations. Just as in the salaried program, Advanced RPO was able to build the relationships needed to become an extension of the client’s team.
Advanced RPO continues to provide an agile, comprehensive, and modern recruiting program that allows the client to continue their operations with full confidence. Their satisfaction is shown by not just remaining with Advanced RPO for over five years, but by adding an additional five facilities to the program for a total of eight.
“We more than tripled our recruiting and Advanced RPO didn’t miss a beat.”— Assistant Vice President of Human Resources
