Because MSH had a long-standing and successful relationship with one of the pre-merger companies, the organization’s internal talent acquisition team immediately engaged us to help establish a workforce for the new IT headquarters.
Partnering closely with the company’s talent acquisition team, we provided strategic workforce guidance across the entire build-out of the new location.
Upfront, we conducted comprehensive talent mapping that helped the company identify exactly what roles they needed to fill. Our compensation analysis and market insights made it easier to pinpoint ways to adjust salaries to be more competitive within the region. We also helped the organization gain a better understanding of its employer value proposition and communicate it to a new community—getting potential candidates excited to work for such a great company.
The bulk of our involvement was working to develop optimized talent acquisition processes that were aligned with the company’s business objectives and delivering top talent—quickly and cost effectively.
Focusing first on filling the most mission-critical positions, we leveraged our proprietary selection process management (SPM) model and India-based sourcing team to identify quality candidates with the niche skillsets required. Because we built our qualification process around hiring managers’ preferences and took into account the precise competencies and behavioral qualifications for the job, we were able to deliver truly aligned candidates.
Beyond our involvement with strategic planning, search, and sourcing, we also helped to ensure a seamless onboarding process for the new hires—managing everything from running background checks, to making the offer, to getting the new employee started on the job.
