Delivering cost savings across seven countries

KellyOCG helps a major pharmaceutical company support the full-time recruiting needs of its Regional Operating Centre, including South Korea, through an enterprise RPO solution.

March 30, 2018

With more than 80% reliance on external talent agencies, a global pharmaceutical company’s Regional Operating Centre recruitment was being handled by teams across seven different countries, namely —Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and South Korea.

Not only was the existing model yielding high recruitment costs, there was a lack of consistency and standardisation across the locations, resulting in less visibility and communication throughout the recruitment process.

The Company 

Our client is one of the world’s top 20 pharmaceutical companies, operating globally with more than 47,700 employees.

The Challenge 

The company was completely reliant on external talent agencies for recruitment across its seven APAC locations and needed a more efficient and cost effective way to access top talent.

The Solution

As the selected RPO partner, KellyOCG successfully implemented standardised processes to recruit approximately 500 mid-level positions across all locations to streamline operations.

The Result

This centralised solution has resulted in a trusted relationship between KellyOCG and the client, increased visibility and communication with the newly implemented process, and achieved approximately $500,000 in cost saving.

Our Value

  • Cost savings of $500K
