Maritime Travel, a national travel company, faced significant staffing challenges in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. With no dedicated Talent Acquisition (TA) team, their hiring managers struggled to manage the staffing needs across their 21 unique locations. Maritime Travel needed a recruitment partner who could step in, take over the recruitment process, and find quality candidates that would help them manage their post-COVID increase in demand for their products.
The client’s biggest pain point was the lack of a dedicated TA team. Their hiring managers, who were also responsible for running operations, struggled to keep up with the demands of recruitment. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic led to an increase in demand for their products, which meant they needed to hire more staff quickly. However, the client lacked the expertise to direct source candidates and struggled to find quality candidates in some locations.
Mindfield proposed a comprehensive recruitment solution that involved dedicated recruiters who would act as an extension of the client’s team. We became experts on the client’s industry, challenges, growth strategy, brand, and Employer Value Proposition (EVP) to ensure that we understood their needs and found the right candidates to fill their staffing needs.
Our team of dedicated recruiters worked with hiring managers to develop a comprehensive recruitment plan that included targeted job advertisements, direct sourcing, and candidate screening. We utilized our extensive database of candidates, job boards, and social media to reach potential candidates across the country.
Our comprehensive recruitment solution enabled Maritime Travel to hire 18 new employees across their 21 unique locations. We successfully sourced quality candidates, enabling the client to meet their increased demand for their products. Our approach allowed the client to focus on their core business while we took care of the recruitment process, saving them time and money.
The client was delighted with the quality of candidates we sourced and our speed and efficiency in delivering on their staffing needs. They appreciated the personalized approach we took to recruitment and the fact that our recruiters acted as an extension of their team. We continue to work with the client to address their staffing needs and help them meet their business objectives.
At Mindfield, we understand the challenges of recruitment, particularly in an industry that’s experiencing a surge in demand. Our tailored recruitment solutions are designed to address our client’s needs, regardless of the industry or location. Our collaboration with Maritime Travel enabled them to find quality candidates quickly and efficiently, allowing them to focus on their core business and deliver excellent customer service to their clients.
