Case Study: Successfully Scaling High-Volume Hiring with Hire Velocity

North America’s leading traffic control company faced the challenge of recruiting high volumes of work zone flaggers and traffic control technicians to support their operations. Struggling with their internal recruiting capacity, they turned to Hire Velocity to build a scalable recruitment team and process.


Recruitment Needs and Challenges

The client required a partner capable of recruiting a significant number of work zone flaggers and traffic control technicians.

By assembling a dedicated team of eight recruiters, Hire Velocity ensured that each member possessed the expertise and resources necessary to tackle the unique requirements of sourcing work zone flaggers and traffic control technicians.

The use of specialty RPO solutions allowed the team to focus exclusively on the niche skill sets and qualifications required for the positions.
