A Legacy in Need of Fresh Talent

Starting as a humble local excavator in 1906, the construction firm has grown into a major industry player, handling large-scale projects from general contracting to civil construction. Despite its storied legacy, the company grappled with the challenge of keeping its talent pipeline robust. 

It needed more than just active job seekers; it needed the best of the best—the kind of talent that is often content in their current roles and not actively seeking new opportunities. This required a shift in strategy, one that focused on engaging passive candidates who may not be actively searching but are open to new opportunities.

IQTalent's Pledge: Beyond Filling Vacancies

Recognizing the unique needs of this construction giant, IQTalent committed to providing an average of 120 hours of weekly sourcing support, focusing not just on filling vacancies but on sourcing top-tier talent. Because when a company's projects impact the lives of thousands, standard just isn't enough. We understood that quality hires were key to maintaining their industry-leading status and committed ourselves to delivering beyond expectations.

A Comprehensive Approach to Sourcing

To meet this ambitious goal, IQTalent deployed a comprehensive, multi-pronged strategy. Our team delved deep into analytics, pulled valuable insights, and used these findings to enhance our sourcing function. We ensured we were sourcing candidates with the right blend of skills, experience, and culture fit—candidates who would add value to the company from day one. This wasn't just about ticking boxes on a job description but about understanding the company's culture and values and finding candidates who would thrive within that environment.
