Case Study: Rapid Deployment in a Country's New Market
A publicly held global IT and consulting company with operations in 27 countries was changing its business model and required 1,000 IT representatives be hired in the U.S. within 12 months. The company faced a particularly challenge in that IT talent is in short supply in many areas of the U.S. In addition, the client was based in India and had no employer presence in the U.S. The company needed a partner with specialty experience in the U.S. that could bring a deep existing talent pool to the collaboration.
The client partnered with Talent Solutions based on its extensive industry experience and ability to rapidly deploy a nationwide solution. The client was able to tap into the team’s existing candidate database and take advantage of Talent Solutions’ proven sourcing methodologies. Talent Solutions created an end-to-end Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) solution for the client, that included the development of a full recruiting process with performance metrics, creating and implementing an applicant tracking system (ATS) and hiring and onboarding a 20-person team within days of the initial engagement.
The Talent Solutions RPO team proved itself to be up to the task of high-volume, nationwide recruiting in a rapid deployment scenario. Select results include the following:
- The solution was fully implemented within the first weeks of the partnership.
- The RPO team submitted 300 IT candidates within the first three weeks of the engagement.
- 2:1 candidate submittal to interview ratio.
