INDEVCO’s cross-border sourcing challenge
INDEVCO Group (Industrial Development Company), are a diversified manufacturing and industrial services consultancy. Headquartered in Lebanon, they have grown across the Middle East to the United States, Europe, and Africa, supplying converting machinery, raw materials, packaging, consumer disposables, and renewable energy products.
A profound issue in sourcing international skills
As a multinational manufacturing company, INDEVCO faced challenges with acquiring talent across borders especially regarding transferable visas within the Middle East.
The problem was the company had difficulties acquiring good people because they did not have an effective agency engagement protocol in place to support ongoing recruitment and were faced with visa related issues when sourcing high calibre people into the company’s geographic footprint.
The costs of not getting it right
Talent acquisition is a critical function of any company’s human resources strategic plan. Success is often underpinned by having the right people in place, as well as the sourcing capability to target and engage with potential employees, when required. Without this, productivity, profitability, growth, are all negatively impacted, and a company’s strategic initiatives will often fail as a direct result of not possessing effective sourcing capabilities.
Scaling the border
INDEVCO have traditionally faced a range of problems beginning with geopolitical issues associated with the company’s origins, to its international operations that cross many borders. Having a dedicated and coordinated global talent acquisition protocol is a challenge many organisations face, and often they don’t realise until it is too late. Being able to secure excellent people swiftly is a necessary part of conducting business in the current era. You must however have the right systems, processes, and protocols in place to manage this.
