In 2004, The Coca-Cola Company started to significantly increase their hiring volume and with it, their need for top recruiter talent. They decided to call on the division of a global retained search firm to help them find contract recruiters. The firm was charging margins for contract recruiters comparable to their rates for retained executive search. It was an expensive proposition and The Coca-Cola Company continued to look for a more economical solution. They wanted their recruiting function to scale with demand and didn't want to hire full-time recruiters.
The Solution—Contract Recruiting
Because Talent Connections has a pool of contract recruiters that rivals any large firm's, the company was given the opportunity to present some quality candidates and at a fair and reasonable margin. Talent Connections was sure to find personalities and skill sets that were a close fit for the department. Ever since, The Coca-Cola Company has turned to Talent Connections for their contract recruiting needs. The contract recruiters placed there have stayed on average for more than a year and have been instrumental in driving high volume quality hiring for the company with the #1 brand in the world.
