Recruitment process streamlined to strengthen business/HR alignment.

The Vision Implemented

A $3.5B international machinery manufacturer lacked the partnership needed between business and HR to enable cost-efficient, high quality recruitment. Newton Talent functioned as an embedded partner to build an end-to-end recruiting approach while filling ongoing open needs at significantly lower cost, higher quality, and reduced time to fill.

The Challenge

The Challenge

A large, international manufacturer needed to improve the effectiveness of its recruiting processes by improving its employment brand and reengaging hiring managers who had become disconnected from HR and the internal recruiting team.

Simultaneously, the client also needed to significantly reduce recruiting expenses as a result of budget challenges driven by a business downturn.

The Solution

The Solution

Deploying a multi-faceted, on-site team, Newton Talent helped the cClient implement a new end-to-end recruiting process that represented significant improvement in alignment between HR and the business.

As representatives of HR, the Newton team re-established close working relationships with hiring managers and dramatically increased hiring manager engagement.

Utilizing a unique pay-for-performance pricing model, Newton reduced costs and demonstrated uncommon value, including successfully completing hard-to-fill open positions.

The Results

The Results

The newly implemented end-to-end recruiting process resulted in:

  • Significant improvement in hiring manager engagement;
  • Reduced time-to-fill open positions;
  • Increased candidate and candidate pipeline quality;
  • Lower recruiting costs cut by almost 40%, driven by process efficiencies and Newton Talents pay-for-performance model, which replace flat-fee recruiting contracts.

In addition, Newton Talent helped improve the Company's employment brand through:

  • a more streamlined recruiting process, which included introducing cost-effective video interviewing practices;
  • better candidate care through the recruiting process; and
  • improved presence on job boards and at high-visibility networking and recruiting events.

These improvements produced tangible short-term benefits but have also set the business up to drive significant future value through higher business/HR alignment and improved talent quality.

"Newton created a strong partnership with our hiring team by establishing an end-to-end recruiting process that cut costs, engaged hiring managers, and delivered both quality and value."
