Juniper Networks Reduced Time-To-Fill 20% with a Hybrid RPO Solution

Juniper Networks Inc. is a multinational corporation specializing in the development of networking and cybersecurity solutions including routers, automation, AI, software, and innovative security products.

Employing 10,000+ people, their market-leading position rests on the technical ability of their solutions teams across AI & Automation, Data Centers, Security, and SD-WAN to improve business performance for their customers.

Juniper Networks’ Challenge

With cyber security issues on the rise across North America, Juniper is rapidly expanding to meet increased demand for their networking and cyber security solutions. To meet their projected growth goals, they needed to hire 1,000+ Engineers and IT professionals to ensure they had sufficient technical experience and knowledge to continue to develop market-leading software and products and services.

Their internal talent acquisition teams were unable to source the right quality and quantity of candidates with the required technical ability to meet their quotas. Their recruitment processes were proving ineffective, inefficient, and costly. They needed an RPO partner who could step in, assess their current recruitment processes and suggest a strategy to increase their access to niche talent pools while driving greater efficiency.

Building a Successful Talent Solution

Pierpoint was appointed to support Juniper with a custom RPO Solution to source, attract and recruit the required volume of technical and engineering talent and to review their existing processes for inefficiencies. Improving their recruiting metrics was a high priority for the partnership.

Pierpoint deployed an on-site team to work with Juniper’s internal hiring teams and examine how they were targeting their candidates. We then expanded their candidate targeting to include passive candidates and improve the quality of candidates we attracted. We implemented better reporting and analytics tracking so that recruiting data could be reviewed on an ongoing basis.

Delivering Impact

Pierpoint’s focus for this partnership was ensuring high quality for all engineering and IT candidates and targeting them with branded recruitment marketing campaigns to ensure interest and commitment throughout the recruitment process. We managed to increase the quality of candidates attracted and reduced their interview-to-hire ratio down to 3.5:1. Their time-to-fill was reduced by 20% and overall recruitment spending cut by 12%.

Through the success of our RPO engagement for their permanent engineering and IT hiring needs, Pierpoint was then engaged to support their contract hiring across their sales and corporate talent acquisition needs.
