Finding a Needle in a Haystack

Purpose

Source and recruit a Plant Manager.

Challenge

Finding a strong leader with highly technical fiber processing skills. The organization did not believe this specific talent was locally available and expected the search to last for months.

Solution

HRM conducted a job task analysis, and assessed the leadership needs of the organization. This information was then used to conduct a targeted search to locate the ideal candidate.

Results

Within 2 weeks HRM presented a highly qualified local candidate with a degree in Paper Engineering, previous plant management experience, and a passion for leading people that was a great fit for the role and the organization. The candidate exceeded Rettenmaier’s expectations and is thriving in the new role.
