Rapid Staff Increase to Accommodate
Unprecedented Growth

Our Client’s Challenge

Our client, a European food manufacturer, was rapidly expanding their presence in the U.S. Their success and accelerated growth was stretching their ability to find talent and they found themselves needing 75-100 hires in a short timeframe to achieve their goals.

Project Snapshot

Sterling’s European-based client expanded into the U.S. and experienced unanticipated growth in their new U.S. facility.

They required a major increase in staffing to keep pace with the accelerated growth.

Sterling became the exclusive staffing partner and provided our “Dedicated Direct Hire Program”.

Sterling delivered over 80 production employee hires, with a 90% retention rate, in a eighteen-month timeframe.

Sterling’s Solution

Sterling assembled a dedicated recruiting team to focus solely on our client’s hiring needs. We became our client’s exclusive staffing partner to assist them with their high priority talent acquisition initiative.

Key elements of Sterling’s “Dedicated Direct Hire Program” included:

  • Dedicating a project manager and recruiting team to the client so we could stay focused and achieve results more quickly.

  • Implementing a recruiting and assessment process that was customized to the client’s hiring practices.

  • Continuous improvement throughout the project. We tracked each step of the hiring process, reviewed results regularly with our client, and adjusted our process each week to enhance our outcomes
