Case Study

Challenges

Hiring Volume: 100 – 700 hires
Roles: Project Manager, Product Manager, Software Engineer, Software Q&A Engineer, UX/UI Engineer
Geography: United States
Specific Challenges:

  • The Head of Talent needed to scale the internal team to meet demand across the firm’s portfolio of companies
  • Technology jobs were critically important to support the surge of digital transformation initiatives such as Telehealth that were accelerated by the pandemic
  • Hiring within a highly competitive talent market and segment, e.g., the technology industry in the Greater Boston area

Approach

Solution Type: Project RPO
Delivery Model: End-to-end
Highlighted Strategies:

  • Sevenstep created a flexible contract approach intended for scale; forecasting volume was difficult due to the start-up nature of many of the companies; initial estimate was for 200 hires in 2021
  • Geared initial model to on-demand; Sevenstep embedded its processes into the existing applicant tracking system (ATS), complete with Sevayo™ Insights for actionable talent and business intelligence as well as reporting capabilities; implemented a Rapid Response Team

Results

  • Filled over 100 critical hard-to-fill roles within the first six months of the contract
  • Scope expansion included management of all of company’s hiring needs internally and across portfolio companies for between 50-400 positions annually
