When Honeywell wanted to grow its Veterans recruiting practice — and position itself as an employer of choice among Veterans — the company sought out subject matter experts in Veteran recruiting. Building on an existing recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) program with Randstad, Honeywell turned to our Veteran Center of Excellence for support organizing, improving and managing its Veterans recruitment efforts.

solution

Randstad applied our proven Veterans sourcing and screening processes to develop an effective strategy to greatly increase the number of Veterans applying for positions at Honeywell. Randstad’s actions included creating and implementing:

  • a customized candidate-sourcing campaign for Veterans
  • a transition-assistance program to ease the move from military to civilian work
  • emerging talent training for Veterans, including training in both soft and hard skills 
  • an advanced training program that offered certifications with guaranteed job interviews and employment consideration for graduates
  • an apprenticeship program

outcome

Honeywell’s Veteran initiative has proven to a runaway success so far — and its momentum only continues to grow. Highlights of the engagement include:

  • generating 867 Veteran candidates in the first quarter of the year, a 46 percent improvement over the year previous 
  • delivering 301 Veteran hires in the first quarter of the year 
  • improving year-over-year Veteran hiring by 600 percent
