The Problem

An Upstate automotive supplier was unable to meet their hiring objectives due to high turnover in Human Resources.

The Solution

A connection within their network recommended Perceptive Recruiting. We used our expertise in STEM fields to rapidly produce qualified candidates.

The Results

We streamlined the process of recruiting, interviewing, hiring and onboarding selected candidates, relieving pressure on the understaffed HR department.

An Upstate automotive supplier was facing a series of challenges when it came to locating hourly and salaried technical professionals.

High turnover in Human Resources left HR unprepared to manage the day-to-day needs of the company and current employees while juggling an increasingly urgent need to recruit hourly and salaried technical professionals.

Unable to meet their hiring objectives, the company’s current employees were struggling to hit production goals. The automotive supplier reached out to its contacts in the Upstate business community for recommendations on a technical recruiting agency who could meet their needs.

A large-scale automotive manufacturer from within their network recommended Perceptive Recruiting. As a result of the recommendation, Perceptive Recruiting was able to step in and identify their highest priority needs and begin the recruiting process immediately.

Our Automotive Supplier client needed to meet staffing goals quickly without sacrificing the quality of the candidates and resulting hires.


Our first priority was to find qualified individuals to fill salaried or professional positions for their manufacturing and warehouse facilities.

After internally reviewing the most qualified candidates, we sent the Automotive Supplier a selection of resumes that fulfilled their targeted openings and met each of their hiring objectives for the following roles:

  • Process Improvement Engineer
  • Senior Planner
  • Mechanical Engineer
  • Program Manager
  • Quality Engineer
  • WMS Manager
  • Logistics Manager
  • Implementation Manager
  • Electrical Engineer
  • Senior Buyer
  • IT Support Specialist
  • CAD Design Engineer

With our specialization in the Engineering, IT and Software Development industries we were able to rapidly produce qualified candidates. We worked directly with Human Resources to get candidates reviewed, scheduled and prepped for interviews. After a hiring selection was made, we also produced offer letters and prepared the new hires for orientation.


Perceptive Recruiting was able to effectively streamline the entire staffing process.

We managed the recruitment, interviewing, hiring and onboarding of selected candidates, relieving pressure previously placed on the automotive supplier’s HR department.

With this pressure lifted, the HR department was able to realign its focus on current employees and the wellbeing of the company.
Our quality recruitment along with our dedication to the success of our clients made a substantial difference in the hiring process for this Tier 1 Automotive Supplier.
