Key Challenges

The client needed to fill a critical vacancy within their organization. Their Maintenance Manager, who oversaw a host of operations such as production and packaging, recently left the company –creating inefficiencies across production.

Filling this position came with its handful of difficulties. Since they’d be managing a significant, high-speed baking facility, the candidate needed to have extensive experience with large scale food manufacturing.  More specifically, the ideal candidate would have experience with industrial and ammonia refrigeration.

The client’s internal talent acquisition team was unable to find someone with proper skillset on their own. Thus, the organization turned to Planet Forward to help close the position.

The Solution

With an intimate knowledge of the industry and an extensive recruiting pipeline, Planet Forward mobilized their team to identify and secure an appropriate candidate for the client. To further ensure they found the right fit, a Planet Forward Account Manager went onsite to the client’s facility to get a sense of the scope of operations.
