How Eastridge Helped A Leading Supplier to Aerospace Fill 100+ Positions in Months Saving Over 60% Over Traditional Hiring Models
Many manufacturers today are faced with a difficult challenge. How do you fill open positions for vital roles needed to meet production demand? And how do you do that while maintaining cost controls during a period of high wages and inflation?
Eastridge worked with one manufacturer to meet these challenges through a tailored program that outsourced a vital spot in the candidate funnel while working seamlessly with the client’s own candidate intake process.
Located in Rochester, New Hampshire, the client is a growing designer and manufacturer of complex components for advanced aerospace applications, supporting both commercial and military projects. While the company had capacity to screen and hire candidates, they needed a partner to acquire candidates in volume. And because of the sophisticated nature of their manufacturing operations, candidates needed to be carefully screened.
Hiring Gap: The client needed to fill 100+ positions in a short period of time in order to quickly ramp up production.
Need for Skilled Workers: Because of the highly complex nature of aerospace manufacturing, workers needed to already possess certain baseline skills.
Gap in Recruitment Team and Process: The client lacked an internal talent sourcing team, which hampered the team’s ability to recruit and move candidates up the recruitment funnel. This gap also drove up costs incurred using traditional outsourcing models.
Geography: The client’s facilities are located in an area where recruiting manufacturing labor has been a challenge.
Recruiting Process Gap: The client’s recruitment process was incomplete. While the internal team could handle final interviews and hiring, searching for candidates and moving them to the top of the recruitment funnel was a gap in the process.
Efficiency: The client needed to streamline its sourcing of candidates.
Contingent Not an Option: The client has traditionally not utilized contingent labor in its operations, limiting options for rapidly filling positions.
Eastridge worked with the client to tailor a solution that would efficiently source candidates and fill the gap in open positions. The modified recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) model brought the client a dedicated sourcing team that could fill the top of the recruiting funnel week after week. Because of the volume of positions and the streamlined nature of the program, Eastridge was able to fill positions quickly at a fraction of the cost.
