How we helped

After acquiring Duracell from Proctor & Gamble in 2015, the Marmon Group retained us to manage the recruitment process for the build-out of a new, 39-person IT organization. A full-time, on-site Hirewell resource enabled all parties to identify issues and sprint towards resolutions collaboratively in real time.

The streamlined partnership between all levels of Marmon stakeholders and Hirewell resulted in comfortable, transparent and predictable processes for our candidates and a great recruiting and employer brand strategy for the client.

 

Since completing the Managed Program in 2016, Hirewell & Duracell have maintained an incredible partnership with each other.  Highlights include:

29 total placements across both IT, Finance and Manufacturing.  

 

Sr Manager, IT Business Relationships

 

SAP, Supply Chain Manager

 

IT Financial Analyst

 

HRBP - Manufacturing

 

Multiple Fills in Supply & Manufacturing

 

Partnership has expanded to the Greater Atlanta Area to help staff and service Duracell’s Plant Operations.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Berkshire utilized Hirewell find a CIO and I was hired as the first IT employee for the new Duracell company. My first objective was to build an entire IT department in less than 6 months that was capable of managing a go-live of all the technology Duracell need to operate as a stand alone company. This included a new SAP environment as well as all the other applications and infrastructure the company needed. 

What do you like best?

Hirewell exceeded my expectations. They sat in our offices and were part of the team understanding our culture, our operating model, and the requirements for each and every position needed. They even supported on boarding of candidates that were referrals from internal employees.

What do you dislike?

There wasn't anything I disliked about the engagement. I was so satisfied with the engagement that I continue to use Hirewell when I have a recruiting need, I recommend them to others, and I use them as a reference whenever I am faced with an HR market related issue.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

The main problem was to fill a large number of positions in a very short timeline in a very hot market. There were two main benefits: 1) we built a high quality team in a very short timeline, and 2) they managed the on boarding process so I could concentrate on getting the team ready for go-live.
