Leveraging scientific expertise to recruit science professionals.

The challenge

Efficiently source and onboard new talent.

Altasciences, the largest contract animal research organization in the U.S., was experiencing a perfect storm: tremendous growth creating a backlog of projects, coupled with high levels of employee attrition and resignations. This included the loss of their talent acquisition team and internal onboarding specialist. Altasciences knew that a new internal talent acquisition team would take at least 90 days to onboard and become productive. At the same time, they needed to continue recruiting and hiring, while also maintaining the candidate experience.

The solution

Skilled recruiters and boots on the ground.

Kelly® Science & Clinical assembled a team of recruiters across the client’s internal system and utilized our science-educated recruiters to screen, organize, and deliver talent—while also overseeing the full hiring process. 

  • We were able to funnel external talent to certain roles that were not currently covered by internal applicants and referrals. 
  • Additionally, we deployed an onboarding specialist—full-time, on-site at the client’s facility—to drive local talent, onboard, and coordinate vendors for pre-employment screenings.

The value

Fully staffed through a partnership built on science.

We provided relief that the client needed to focus on hiring and training new internal talent acquisition team members. At the same time, Kelly expertise led to key hires in animal research, lab, and histology support roles via contract-to-hire, and several senior scientists and project manager hires via direct placement.
