TRC Helps International Shipping Leader Consolidate US Operations in Georgia

The Challenge

TRC’s client, a leading international shipping company, decided to move its headquarters and consolidate its US operations in the Atlanta area, only 38% of its distributed US team members were willing to move. That left approximately 90 roles across multiple departments and levels to fill – fast.

The Approach

TRC aggregated critical data including local salary ranges and traffic patterns to area companies vying for the same talent. Given the area’s 96.3% employment rate, TRC also helped identify opportunities to think creatively and flexibly about job titles and capabilities outside the shipping industry that would transfer well.

The Results

The client co-branded its internal opportunities web page with TRC, which reinforced the partnership between the two companies. Externally, TRC capitalized on the need to prioritize the most urgent needs, filling critical management roles in only two weeks and completed a total of 53 new hires – more than half of the open positions – within two months.
