Vacancy and Workload Capacity Create Need for Interim HR Staff
In this global manufacturing firm with 1400 employees, the HR function is highly decentralized with a solid reporting line to business managers. According to Division VP of Global HR Tracey Hogan, that type of structure keeps the HR function lean and focused on local operations. As a result, when one of the firm’s senior global team leads decided to leave the firm, Hogan had an immediate need for a professional who knew general HR duties in the context of local payroll compilation and submission to a central office.
Division VP of Global HR Tracey Hogan contacted Continuiti on a Monday after getting a solid referral from her Head of Recruiting. “By Thursday we had the resume of the person who would end up taking the job,” says Hogan. “That person may have been ‘in seat’ by Friday.”
Workload Relief Delivered with Interim Generalist
With a growing workload and a “slim HR function,” Hogan decided to add a second interim generalist to help support her team. The position required experience working with an employee population that is highly scientific – R&D scientists, technical sales and engineers – and unionized. “We had several resumes and interviews with candidates within the week” she says. “Continuiti listened so well. The profiles were spot-on.”
To hear Tracey Hogan tell it, there is no reason to consider another firm for her HR staffing needs.
The team at Continuiti had an immediate feel for our culture and gave us the right fit. Their approach is tried and true. They were able to find the right people without having to physically see our organization. They understood our operation and our business by asking the right questions. I was so impressed by the effort and quality of the people.
