In 2006, our client opened it’s state-of-the-art production plant in West Point, Georgia. Since then, the site has created more than 14,000 jobs and produced more than 2.7 million vehicles. Like Malone, the client’s success is based on a commitment to quality, speed to market, and being a pillar of their community by providing an excellent place of employment. This facility developed a strong workplace culture, built on the belief that people are the heart and soul of the company. This culture, along with many local partnerships in the area, including maintenance certification programs available through local colleges, made this facility a sought-after place to work. Prior to onset of the pandemic, candidates were lining up to join this incredible team.
Due to COVID-19, supply shortages, and the most challenging labor market seen in years, the client was in need of quickly adding 200+ full-time employees.
MALONE PROVIDES UNIQUE RECRUITING SOLUTION TO COMBAT TIGHT LABOR MARKET
Malone has been a contingent labor provider with this client for over ten years. Due to this relationship, the client reached out to Malone to provide an out-of-the-box recruiting option to help combat the challenges they were facing. Malone’s leadership team quickly brainstormed solutions for a unique and effective recruitment method enabling the client to reach their headcount while increasing productivity and employee engagement.
The solution proposed was RPO.

Our end-to-end RPO solutions are completely tailored to your unique requirements. We manage the recruitment process as an extension of your in-house HR team, which helps to align your resourcing plan with your overall business objectives. Our Full RPO model relieves your team of the administrative and transactional burden of the recruitment process by focusing on specific points of need, depending your recruitment requirements.

Once the Malone RPO process was implemented, applications increased over 300%, averaging 145 applications per week. With the increased candidate pool, coupled with improved interviewing and onboarding methods, Malone reduced time to hire by 50%. This reduction in time from application to start, boosted both candidate and employee satisfaction and reduced overall employee turnover for the client. Due to the success the client experienced from reaching their goals, the contract was extended an additional 2 weeks to add an additional 100 headcount.
