factors driving the current supply chain disruptions

Certainly, the global pandemic brought to light just how fragile the global supply chain is. But, the pandemic alone didn’t cause the supply chain crisis, and it’s not the reason this crisis continues to plague companies across the globe.

Today, many supply chain processes are extremely complex and rely on a network of suppliers, distributors and logistics to keep everything in sync. Just one supply chain disruption can cause a ripple effect throughout the supply chain process involving not just your company but also impacting all businesses within the network. For example, the shortage of semiconductor chips cost the automotive industry more than $110 billion and affected everyone from auto manufacturers to car dealerships to consumers.

Several factors are causing instability in the supply chain industry, including:

how randstad’s HR solutions can help

The first step companies can take to mitigate these supply chain disruptions is to build a strong talent strategy and develop an efficient recruitment process that can respond quickly to today’s volatile environment. Our Randstad HR services can help your company achieve just that. Here’s a look at just some of the ways a partnership with Randstad can improve talent outcomes for your company.

securing talent fast

As a Randstad HR solutions partner, you have instant access to our network of prescreened candidates. Our skilled recruitment team can work directly with your company to identify candidates within our network who have the specific skills and experience you require. Although we have an extensive network of talented candidates, there are times when we can’t find the necessary skills within our talent pool. In these cases, we utilize a robust recruitment strategy to attract, engage and acquire the talent your company needs.

As with most of our Randstad services, our HR solutions are completely customizable. Your company can choose exactly what aspects of the recruitment process you want our teams to handle. For example, we can begin the engagement process and screen the candidates, and then your company can conduct interviews for its top picks. On the other hand, we can handle the entire recruitment process from start to finish, including onboarding and training. You choose and we deliver.

No matter what services your company needs, our teams at Randstad can help you hire faster and better. With the right team in place, your organization can put your supply chain strategies into action.

acquiring the right digital skills

Developing a strong and agile supply chain strategy requires having the right skills in place. This factor is especially true when it comes to digital and more technical  skills. Not only has the ongoing labor shortage made it difficult for employers to attract quality candidates, but the growing skills gap is making it harder to find applicants with these highly sought-after digital and/or technical skills.

Thanks to our comprehensive pre screening process, our teams at Randstad can connect you to applicants with the skills your company needs. Our HR solutions take the guesswork out of finding candidates with the desired skills, which can give you an edge over your competition. We work with your company to determine the specific skill set you need not only for today but for the future. We then sift through our extensive talent pool to identify candidates with the right skills.

streamline the HR process

With today’s tight job market, time is not on your side. Employers can no longer hesitate when making job offers. Just a day or two delay in choosing the right candidate could mean the difference between hiring the worker you want and settling for your second, or even third, choice. Adding automation to the recruitment process can minimize these obstacles and enable your company to achieve greater hiring results.
