Global Talent Acquisition Solutions for Growing Companies

Background

House of Shipping was tasked by several key customers to support their ambitious growth and organisational development strategies. These strategies involved not only geographic diversification and expansion into new territories but also the need to strengthen teams at various levels and introduce new skills and competencies to keep pace with a rapidly changing business landscape.

Challenge

While many of these companies had successfully established a strong brand presence in their home markets, they encountered significant challenges related to brand recognition when venturing into unfamiliar territories. This presented substantial hurdles in their efforts to recruit talent. Furthermore, the absence of dedicated in-house Human Resources departments in some customers’ organisations meant they lacked the necessary expertise and capability to manage large-scale recruitment, especially in regions where their brand was not yet well known.

Solution

Houseof Shipping’s talent acquisition 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. We integrated the following processes to aid recruitment:

  • Understanding the customer: The talent acquisition team deeply understood the customers’ business structure, goals, culture, and other crucial criteria. As strategic partners, House of Shipping went beyond basic recruitment to ensure candidates aligned with the customers’ values and vision.
  • Industry knowledge: To ensure the talent market was well understood, we researched the latest industry trends, technologies, skills, available talent, top competitor companies, company sizes, and other related industry information that would assist us in our talent search.
  • Sourcing and Selection: The talent acquisition team adopted both direct and indirect approaches to sourcing talent. We advertised roles on relevant local and international job portals and social media to attract active candidates, whilst simultaneously headhunting passive candidates through various channels and networks. This allowed us to thoroughly cover the entire talent pool in different countries and approach all relevant candidates for open roles.
  • Assessment: We ran a thorough selection process whereby the candidates were assessed both technically and through our competency-based approach. In addition, we put them through a personality test to determine if candidates were culturally aligned with the respective customers and whether they were team players. Lastly, we ran thorough background checks on candidates to obtain valuable insights into their performance, professionalism, and other criteria.
  • Candidate Experience: We maintained high ethical standards throughout the recruitment process, emphasising fairness, transparency, and confidentiality. Regular updates were provided to candidates, ensuring a human-focused and respectful process.
