The Challenge

ZF Transmissions Group located in Grey Court, South Carolina, is a leading Tier I automotive supplier for driveline and chassis technology. ZFTG engaged HTI to manage the direct-hire campaign to ramp up a new 1.4 million square foot facility.

The initial plan was to direct hire 1,200 associates by the end of 2015. Due to high demand for their product, the hiring plan has grown to 2,100 full-time hires.

Our Solution

HTI integrated as an extension of the ZFTG Human Resources Department. HTI began the project by dedicating a team of recruiters to manage all of ZFTG’s external hiring. HTI also engaged our branch offices to help support the applicant flow.

  • HTI has planned and managed
    regular job fairs, targeting both hourly and skilled workers in times of peak demand.
  • Local advertising and social media has expanded the relationship between HTI and ZFTG.
  • At the end of the ramp up, HTI can scale back and support ZFTG on an as-needed basis.
