IT Recruiting GroupM Case Study
Global resource, Local value
GroupM is the world’s leading full-service media investment management operation. One out of every three ads seen worldwide is placed by a GroupM agency.
It is a business with exhaustive first-hand understanding of the value that comes with global reach and local, talent-driven services. GroupM’s technology hiring needs span the organizational spectrum, from entry-level specialist roles to executive management.
The company’s global CIO, John Donnarumma, met several IT recruitment firms to explore how they would tackle the organization’s diverse technology hiring requirements.
Since becoming one of only three preferred IT recruitment service providers working with GroupM, Harvey Nash has averaged one permanent placement per month for the company. This steady placement success can be attributed to the Harvey Nash commitment to knowing the client’s business and understanding the kinds of professionals who will succeed at the job and in the workplace.
GroupM has relied on Harvey Nash to provide valued support for its technology agenda for a number of years, with an expanding number of strategic placements in the U.S. as well as in Europe and Asia Pacific. In addition to recruiting candidates for individual positions, Harvey Nash has engaged with GroupM on multiple projects, based on its extensive expertise as a Microsoft multi- Gold Partner. This included a major initiative to re-platform legacy Lotus Notes applications over to its strategic SharePoint platform, new SharePoint applications built from the ground up to support GroupM business operations and ongoing application development support and maintenance.
GroupM is always looking for better, more flexible and efficient ways to manage technology resources. As its recruiting partner, Harvey Nash keeps pace with every emerging need for top-notch technical talent solutions. According to Donnarumma, working with Harvey Nash has been a welcome surprise.
