Shirley Parsons Talent Consultants helps Transport company place a Safety Dispatcher after just three weeks.
A large bus transport company with over 50,000 employees, had a unique hiring challenge. Traditionally reliant on internal recruiting, the company encountered significant obstacles while seeking to fill a crucial Safety Dispatcher position in a rural area of Ontario.
The local labor market was severely constrained by a large construction project which made it difficult to search for qualified candidates. Despite partnering with several recruitment agencies for support, the position still remained open. Shirley Parsons were then approached to help in the executive search.
Shirley Parsons used our extensive network of EHS professionals to find a suitable candidate. The first candidate we presented to them impressed the hiring team with her vast experience, aligned career goals, and a personality that fit seamlessly with the team's dynamics. Following two rounds of interviews, the company extended an offer which was accepted.
The successful recruitment initiative led to the acceptance of an offer for a role that had previously remained open for over six months.
What was once a challenging and prolonged hiring process was efficiently concluded in just over three weeks. This achievement is particularly significant as the appointed Safety Dispatcher is crucial to the company's operations, contributing to the on-site safety committee.
This case highlighted the effectiveness of Shirley Parsons' specialized recruitment services in overcoming hiring challenges and facilitating the integration of qualified professionals into the client's team.
