This company was formed by the acquisition and merger of multiple entities each with their own individual processes for hiring. Post merger, the talent acquisition team was primarily made up of H.R. generalists that were having significant difficulties procuring applicants for the corporate finance and accounting group. A recent SAP implementation changed much of the hiring criteria for requisitions which posed a challenge to the existing recruiting structure. A lack of current SAP recruiting expertise caused time to fill and cost per hire metrics to increase in addition to a spike in the use of temporary and contract associates.
The Tailored Solution:
Our services were originally engage on a contract basis to only address the most difficult hiring needs. Shortly thereafter, it was determined that our services would be beneficial on larger scale and a long term solution was implemented to address all the hiring needs of the finance and accounting departments. Tailored Management conducted benchmarking studies and implemented a workflow process that improved candidate quality and quantity. Our proprietary reporting tools provided easy access to information such as candidate submittal to hire ration, offer to acceptance and time to fill date. Over the course of our relationship we cut contingent recruiting fees and the cost of contract personnel all while improving time to fill and candidate quality.
