Situation

Our client, a US$4 billion diversified industrial company with over 11,000 employees serving customers in more than 130 countries, is the world’s leading provider of water treatment and process improvements. The client needed an RPO provider that could build a consistent, quality recruitment process and supporting policies; generate a rich pipeline of talent across key international markets; and provide the greatest return on investment.
