From Automaker to Innovator

KellyOCG helps global automaker maximize innovation capabilities through a highly-collaborative and flexible talent acquisition strategy.

A regional branch of a large, global automotive manufacturer was continuing its journey to transform from its legacy brand and operating model to an innovative, global mobility partner. But, to ensure they could attract and engage the new skills and competencies needed to succeed in this new world, the company required a significant shift in its talent acquisition strategy.

In particular, there was an increasing demand for next-generation engineering and IT talent to fill current and emerging positions in innovation and product development. However, due to the rapid pace of technology change in the industry, the competition for engineering and IT talent with cutting-edge skills was steep.
