The client, a world-leading heavy industrial equipment manufacturer, was developing new autonomous vehicle technologies and next-gen platforms to deliver state-of-the-art technology to their customers. The problem? They needed support in multiple areas of software and systems development — specifically when it came to advanced technology and functional safety and certification expertise.
Due to the global pandemic, however, the client was finding it difficult to find the right people with the right skills, believing their local market and suppliers had already run through all potential candidates. Behind the clock on critical work, the client trusted the experts at Randstad Engineering Solutions to deliver.
After assigning dedicated delivery and technology directors for all Randstad work, our engineering recruiters dove into our vast, global talent network to identify qualified candidates outside the client's local market. Other key elements of the engagement included:
- creating a client-specific training program to upskill employees for the company's major areas of need like model-driven development, C++, cybersecurity and UI/UX development
- implementing daily calls between key Randstad technologists and client stakeholders to improve project coordination, work and planning
- leveraging all of Randstad teams to identify internal resources with the right skills on a global scale
In the end, Randstad was able to help our client get the talent they needed with the right expertise to support their state-of-the-art projects. Key outcomes included:
- reducing operational costs by developing process improvements that streamlined client activities
- lowering client’s blended rate by more than 25 percent via a delivery model that leveraged both on- and offshore resources
- providing client with ongoing support, doubling the number of resources supporting the engagement and generating several program-expansion requests
As a result of this successful partnership, the client now looks to Randstad Engineering Solutions for input into their long-term product planning.
