• Serendi

FULL RPO INTEGRATION FOR EMEA



Mission:

  • Reconcile a standardized Talent Acquisition process across the EMEA region for business locations with very different annual recruitment volumes.

Setting:

  • Swiss headquartered pharmaceutical company (6500 employees) with locations across Europe requiring between 3-150 recruitments per location per year

  • Client’s decision to partner with a TA provider for tactical recruitment while keeping TA strategy inhouse as part of their HR transformation objectives

  • The pre-RPO situation of TA included a lot of admin work for HRBPs and a high degree of fluctuation in the recruitment team (freelance, temp recruiters, or interns)

  • The client selected Serendi because of strong European footprint and local expertise, cost-by-cause fee model, and a transparent partnership approach

Journey:

  • Setting-up a full lifecycle recruitment solution that is delivered by onsite teams for high recruitment volume locations and offsite through satellite teams for locations with a rather low volume

  • Designing and implementing a consistent process that caters for both full onsite and satellite locations

  • Resolving a complex roll-out situation (HQ stakeholder and local business leaders within a matrix organization) in a phased roll-out-plan

  • Reconciling the ATS system use for GDPR compliance, consistent reporting, and KPIs

  • Establishing a Preferred Supplier List for unified 3rd party agency use
