A large financial services firm engaged us to help improve processes and staff up to meet a critical need.
Large bottlenecks and gaps were preventing the firm from attracting and hiring qualified candidates into a critical department within their regional office. They recognized that they needed a better alternative to what they were doing.
To help the local team meet the challenge, we recommended a change in messaging to fit the local market and worked with them to improve candidate profiles and screening - as well as related recruitment processes.
We worked with the team to identify all the professionals working for other financial firms with similar experience. These individuals needed enough of the right experience delivering value within similar, complex enterprise-level organizations. After mapping the market and building up a pool of talented potential candidates, we spoke to all those who most closely matched the requirements and provided the best match candidates with flexible assignments to support the department.
By opening them up to more niche, hard-to-find pools of candidates, and working with them to staff up more quickly with interim and temporary support staff, we were able to help the team fill roles in weeks - not the usual month or two.
