Our client, a leading automotive engineering company, was looking for a partner who could expertly support recruiting engineering and technical maintenance professionals.
Throughout the project, we recruited 70 highly specialised individuals who support our client out of Murten.
Pontoon’s recruitment experts had to source and attract engineers in a market experiencing fierce competition for highly qualified talent.
Another difficulty was recruiting for a site in a bilingual location – we had to find engineering experts speaking German and French.
We consulted with the customer and based Pontoon’s RXO team entirely in Switzerland. Our Swiss experts knew the domestic market well and incorporated this know-how into attraction and sourcing approaches. They were also familiar with the recruitment specifics of the surrounding countries, which proved invaluable in covering the required language combination.
Pontoon’s recruiters had substantial experience finding specialised talent and were familiar with tech jargon, which was critical to approaching and attracting engineers. Our sourcing strategy was crucial for the programme’s success:
We filled all positions successfully and reduced time-to-hire by 15% in less than a year.
The client’s hiring managers were very pleased with our RXO service – 9 in 10 managers gave us a score of “satisfied” or “very satisfied” in a post-project satisfaction survey.
