Manufacturing Recruitment

Transform Talent Acquisition with Manufacturing Recruiters

Manufacturing and engineering companies face unprecedented changes as technology, globalization, geopolitical uncertainty, and evolving skill sets create new talent demands and growth challenges. At Hire Velocity, our manufacturing recruiters partner with you to attract and retain agile leaders and next generation skilled employees who can meet the demand of technological innovation, shifting supply chains, global demographic changes, sustainability concerns, and high mobility.

Manufacturing & Engineering Recruiting Expertise

Availability of skilled workers ranks among the top three concerns for manufacturing CEOs. As advances in technology, robotics, and augmented reality revolutionize the manufacturing and engineering industries, workers with the skills and innovation needed to drive growth are in short supply. Stiff competition for innovative leaders and skilled labor combined with the need for specialized talent attraction and targeted recruiting strategies drive cost per hire up within the manufacturing sector, even as the shelf life for current skills shrinks in the face of rapid innovation. Skill sets that produced excellent results five years ago may not produce those same results today or in the future. Leaders must leverage current technology and skill sets to create value for customers and drive change in a lean growth environment.

Hire Velocity steps into this challenging hiring environment with strategic executive search, recruitment process outsourcing (RPO), and talent advisory solutions designed to increase quality of hire while reducing cost and time to fill.

Strategic Hiring in an Evolving Market

According to PricewaterhouseCoopers, two-thirds of manufacturing CEOs place a high priority on building a skilled workforce, but just 32% have the necessary policies in place to attract and retain top talent. Companies need workers with STEM skills to meet the demands of technology evolution and impending retirement, but high mobility rates and demographic changes make it difficult to hire and retain the best employees.

Our configurable RPO solutions give you the flexibility and scalability you need to fill today’s jobs and meet tomorrow’s goals. We partner with you to assess your current hiring strategy and technology platform, giving you the knowledge and tools you need to develop a reliable talent pipeline and meet your business objectives.
