House of Shipping (HOS) was entrusted by several of its key customers to assist in the realization of their ambitious growth and organizational development strategies. These comprehensive strategies not only involved geographic diversification and expansion into new territories but also required the strengthening of their teams at various levels and the introduction of new skills and competencies to keep pace with the rapidly changing business landscape.
While many of these companies had successfully established a robust brand presence in their home markets, they encountered significant hurdles related to brand recognition upon venturing into unfamiliar territories. This posed substantial challenges in their talent acquisition endeavors. Further complicating matters was the absence of dedicated in-house Human Resources departments in some of the customers’ organizations, which meant they lacked the necessary expertise and ability to navigate the complexities of large-scale recruitment, especially in regions where their brand was yet to gain traction.
The TA team ran an end-to-end recruitment process for its customers to ensure no stones were left unturned whilst searching for the right caliber of potential employee. HOS’s Talent Acquisition (TA) team integrated the following processes to aid recruitment:
In alignment with our commitment to address both initial and continuous recruitment needs, the HOS Talent Acquisition team efficiently met the demand for over 100 specialized roles across diverse global regions, including UAE, Turkey, Malaysia, Egypt, Iraq, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Saudi Arabia, USA, China, South Korea, Kenya, Mexico, and Thailand. These positions often demanded unique skill sets and qualifications, necessitating our proactive approach to source passive candidates. Significantly, our dedicated efforts ensured that these roles were fulfilled within the stipulated Service Level Agreements (SLAs) of 45-60 days.
