The client is a manufacturer of medium to heavy duty trucks and buses in Chennai, India. Established in 2009, the client employs a more than 3,000-person workforce.
When the client became dissatisfied with the low level of engagement from its existing direct placement services provider, it turned to Acara in 2015. Our mission? Focus on L7 positions (with the CTC of 3.5LPA – 6LPA). Since then, we’ve closed more than 45 positions in the bus and truck divisions.
A leading automotive manufacturing company needed to source high-quality candidates for hard-to-fill positions within a tight budget and strict policies and practices.
The client’s high cost to company (CTC) limited their budget, making it difficult for many vendors to present positions to job candidates. The client struggled finding talent within the boundaries of their policies and practices, and it needed help sourcing expert workers without slowing down operations.
- Fixed hike % budgeted on the current CTC
- Rigid academic structure
- Hard-to-fill positions
With consideration to the client’s unique recruitment practices, Acara chose an agile approach; we worked within the client’s requirements to help its hiring managers close the hard-to-fill positions—all while empowering productivity and saving costs.
Instead of relying on conventional job portals, we amped up networking efforts and referral results. Our goal was to build the client a more comprehensive internal database—a network of high-quality profiles that recruiters could use to close hard-to-fill positions.
After three years with the client, Acara closed 45+ hard-to-fill positions. Currently, our team is working on 20+ positions with a 10 – 15% of attrition rate in internal divisions, such as Inplant logistics (Truck Division), QM (Bus Division), and Facility Maintenance (where a higher rate of decline, no-shows, and remote plant location proves to be a consistent challenge). The program’s success has translated into greater partnerships between the client and our teams.
“The Acara team is proactive, prompt, and diligent!
The team has been very supportive and helpful and their
diligence is commendable.”
