GLOBAL SOURCING

Mission:  Increase the diversity score while reducing the cost-to-hire during a restructuring program.

The Setting
The Journey
  • International public sector organization facing a recruitment peak due to restructuring a whole division and targeting to drastically increase diversity scores while operating on a strict budget

  • The pre-RPO situation of TA included limited resources reserved for turnover replacement hiring, talent sourcing capabilities were acquired externally through working with a network of 35+ agencies and head-hunters

  • The client selected Serendi as a partner for Talent Pipelining during the restructuring program. Reasons for the selection were Serendi’s ability to fully client brand all activities, the strong global talent sourcing capabilities, and a largely performance-based fee model

  • Implementing a Talent Pipelining solution that is targeting candidates globally for different functional areas and hierarchy levels within the restructured division

  • Short term ramp-up with segmented sourcing strategy by geographic region executed by a dedicated team speaking 13 different languages to facilitate an appropriate candidate contact

  • Real-time reporting on diversity score of the talent pipelines and shortlists, monitoring and adjusting sourcing focus and strategy as needed

    • +3'400 candidates identified and approached globally ( ~95 countries)
