Staffing a Global IT Project with an Aggressive Six-month Timeline

Talent Strategy & Acquisition

The Challenge

Our client, a world leader in industrial coatings, had an aggressive six-month timeline to staff a Global IT project with over 50 niche IT professionals. The client did not have an internal recruiting team to ensure a successful project, and the lack of available talent was directly impacting the bottom line.

The Solution

Our experienced recruiters, sourcers, and candidate care specialists brought enhanced quality, a suite of recruiting tools, and best practices to operate as a Recruiting Center of Excellence for the company’s IT division. This flexible team model allowed for quick ramp up during times of hiring spikes in order to shorten requisition time to fill, increase productivity, and provide on-time delivery.

The Results

Within six months of launching our partnership, Aspirant was successful in staffing the Global IT project team. Our experienced recruiters helped to bring best practices and compliance to this organization. As a follow up to our success with the IT group, Aspirant’s Talent Strategy & Acquisition practice became the recruiting solution for all client’s business units and has filled over 700 professional roles since our engagement.
