02 Nov September 2012 | Network-hunting: New HR leaders in no time…
A manufacturing global organisation had an urgent need for 2 HR leaders. Through the power of our network, our deep knowledge of the client’s needs and our professional selection process, Optimis recruited several highly qualified individuals in record time.
The organisation was looking for new HR leaders to cover for some turnover during a critical phase where HR is key to success. The urgency and the need for great talent coming from outside constituted a great challenge for us. As always, the needs for strong alignment between the candidates personality and the corporate culture was a key requirement to success.
Optimis deployed its network and used social media channels to identify potential candidates. These were thoroughly scrutinized, interviewed and assessed before they were presented to our client. A full follow-up process with the client was put in place to update progress of the selection. Selective references were called and interviewed to understand past performance and determine cultural fit. The short-listed candidates that passed the rigorous selection process went to the clients for final interviews.
By using our network and leading he selection process, we were able to find the right candidates and have contracts signed in less than 8 weeks. Our client is very happy with the process and with the quality of the candidates and confirms that contracting with specialised firms such as Optimis is very efficient, effective and a great value proposition.
