Wednesday, May 31, 2017—On May 1, 2017, the HRO Today Association announced the annual winners of their coveted awards for excellence in HR innovation and thought leadership. At the industry’s best-known and most prestigious Human Resources (HR) event, leading recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) and executive search firm, Hire Velocity received the 2017 North America Award for Innovation in HR Transformation in partnership with one of their healthcare clients.
“Our client experienced substantial growth in 2016,” said Hire Velocity Chairman, John West. “They needed to double the size of their office count and their associate population, while maintaining the culture that made the business successful in the first place. On top of this, the company was growing via acquisitions so it was inheriting businesses that already had established cultures.”
The company partnered with Hire Velocity to create a plan of attack for filling new positions and supplementing current teams at the company's existing locations as well as acquisition locations across the north and southeastern United States.
As a result, the team bolstered the company’s talent pipeline and brought the time-to-offer down to just 11 days, a full 45% lower than the internal team achieved. The strategy resulted in a 97% retention rate and was rolled out to more than 265 local stores.
