The challenge

With a reactive approach to talent acquisition, lean HR team, and inefficient recruitment processes, our client’s reliance on agencies to meet both day-to-day and peak hiring requirements meant unsustainably high recruitment costs, and aging requisitions (300+ days) impacting business performance. With no centralised system to match potential candidates, and low brand recognition in the local South Korea market, our client came to Robert Walters looking to resolve immediate talent challenges and embed a sustainable recruitment programme for the long-term.

Setting up the partnership

A specially formed team undertook an in-depth discovery process to fully understand the client ecosystem, business drivers, talent challenges and the immediate impact that could be delivered though the adoption of the right talent solution.

With the team’s extensive local market and industry experience solutioning programmes for similar clients, they were able to identify the critical requirements to deliver results immediately. “We educated our stakeholders on critical recruitment process refinements and provided talent market insights to drive accelerated outcomes. This was a massive eye-opener for our client, who had never thought about how talent mapping and evolving their hiring process could make hiring more predictable in the short- and medium-term.” – Client Services Director, Robert Walters South Korea

The solution

Based on the most pressing challenges of filling difficult requisitions and laying out the foundations for the future, our client’s talent acquisition team chose to move ahead with [Project RPO], our insights-led, scalable outsourced recruitment solution designed to support organisations needing to fast-track hiring and improve candidate quality, whilst reducing time to hire and recruitment spend.

Key results

The flexibility offered by our Project RPO solution enabled our client to successfully navigate a hiring freeze, pivoting to support and fast-track critical projects including talent pipelining, local market brand building and creating a robust, best-practice end-to-end recruitment process. On completion of the hiring freeze, a pipeline of talent that was mobilised now allows for acceleration of key projects.

Finding the right talent solution for our clients, at any stage of their evolution, is what we do best. In a short amount of time, we’ve become a trusted talent partner, providing tangible short-term impact and embedded long-term solutions that will support more global locations for this sustainable energy and technology company as we expand our partnership.

Client testimonial

We assigned a challenging role to our RPO recruiter, one unfilled for almost a year, and she returned with a suitable candidate for our hiring manager within the day. Thanks to Robert Walters’ hiring expertise and process optimisations, we see swift, effective impact that we’ll continue to benefit from beyond the partnership.
