Decreasing turnover by 35% while nearly doubling facility headcount

PAI RPO Case Study-03

IFA Group is a rapidly growing Tier 1 automotive supplier of drive shafts. They were preparing for a ramp-up of a new product group and needed a larger workforce to keep up with demand. IFA reached out to HTI to establish a recruitment partnership, wherein HTI developed a strategy to stabilize their growing hourly needs. During the project, IFA’s initial hiring needs doubled. As a flexible partner, we pivoted to a more robust recruitment plan.

Project goals

  • Reduce Operator turnover (14.5% per month at project start)
  • Grow facility headcount by nearly 150 new hires
  • Improve and streamline recruitment process

Our solution

HTI developed a structured road map to address IFA’s current challenges. We recommended a focus in lowering dependency on contingent labor, creating pathways for experienced & non-experienced candidates, and centralizing recruiting efforts. Through this process, HTI identified opportunities for improving community perception via marketing efforts, constructing a steadier Operator conversion process, differentiating temp-to-hire & direct hire candidate criteria, increasing exempt and skilled-hourly recruitment efficiency, and creating capacity for the HR team.

  • Outsourced all recruiting for hourly, skilled & exempt
  • Planned & executed hiring events
  • Engaged in strategic local marketing
  • Revamped recruitment process
  • Provided dedicated on-site resources
  • Built custom leadership development program
