Fortune 500 Consumer Packaged Goods Company
LaSalle’s client, a Fortune 500 global leader within the consumer packaged goods industry, was going through an SAP systems implementation. This company had multiple plants sites globally, and needed five supply chain analysts to travel to their company locations in Arizona, Texas and Illinois for a nine month project. These supply chain professionals would be loading plan orders in SAP, via conversion tools, to support the 2010 annual operating plan processes.
Identify – Supply chain data load analysts, preferably with manufacturing experience
Qualify – Supply chain analysts with experience in SAP, specifically collecting data from business users, performing pre and post-validation of data, executing data loads, trouble-shooting and resolving data issues with business users; cost accounting experience preferred
Deliver – Six qualified candidates for a start in three weeks who were willing to travel
To address our client’s needs for strong supply chain analysts, LaSalle Network developed a specific sourcing and recruitment strategy.
The recruitment strategy consisted of the following:
- High Volume Recruiting – To locate only the best new hires for our client, two dedicated recruiters executed over 1,000 recruiting calls to identify a pool of 24 candidates with our client’s desired skillset.
- 425,000 Qualified Candidate Database – LaSalle Network is able to quickly present candidates through one of the largest qualified candidate databases in the industry.
LaSalle Network was able to deliver six high-quality supply chain analysts, all with SAP experience, within one week’s time, for the nine month project. Overcoming the hurdle of locating high caliber talent willing to travel, LaSalle Network allowed our client to maintain large quantities of inventory with an outdated system through these new project hires.
LaSalle’s candidates traveled weekly to our client’s locations in Arizona, Texas and Illinois to ensure an efficient and error-free conversion.
