(Supply Chain Recruiting)
What happens when you decide to move your Supply Chain Management
and 3PL back in-house to have more control over your operations, only to
witness your large national recruiting firm not deliver the hundreds of
supply chain professionals you need to sustain operations?
Utter chaos ensues, fingers are pointed, production rates drop and delivery
expedites of both materials and finished goods soar.
This is what led a $13B Global Manufacturer to a Detroit, Michigan-based
Supply Chain Recruiting Firm, The JMJ Phillip Group. If you could think of
anywhere in the country that would have a deep understanding of supply chain
operations it would be Detroit, Michigan simply due to the large scale complex manufacturing
operations of the automotive industry.
Our new client explained their mass hire problem while noting that they are already 90 days
behind schedule and banking on our Executive Search Firm to not only make highly qualified
placements, but also expect them to be done under extreme time constraints.
Their Supply Chain Recruiting problems were also compounded with trying to fill positions
all across the United States in both major metropolitan areas and rural areas where
relocation was the only option.
The Supply Chain Executive Recruiting Team assembled a plan of execution that
included an “any means necessary” approach to driving candidate referrals. Understanding
the supply chain sector is only a small component of a great recruiter, one must also
be a top notch sales professional and negotiator when it comes to making highly targeted rapid
placements in not only in major metros but also in the more undesirable areas of the country. These
unique and rare skill sets are not found in most recruiting firms but we can attribute the same
skill sets not only to our success with this client but also to our continued success for well
over a decade now.
The end result for our clients was the rapid and strategic placement of their most imperative
and hard to fill supply chain positions in multiple locations. Not only did the JMJ Phillip
Executive Recruiting team get them back on track, they also ended up saving them
hundreds of thousands of dollars in cost overruns and damaged customer relationships.
