Renewable Energy Company Partners with Certified Minority-Owned Business Enterprise
Since 2007, Horizontal Talent has been a top-ranked IT staffing services provider for a Minnesota-based renewable energy company with millions of customers across eight U.S. states. From major SAP implementations to multiple transmissions projects to Windows and SharePoint upgrades, Horizontal Talent has delivered the talent they need to grow and evolve.
As an industry leader focused on creating a more sustainable future, this company has always placed a high emphasis on diversity. They were struggling to meet their diversity spend goals among their existing staffing partners and were looking to join forces with a supplier who shared their values. Additionally, they needed a staffing partner who could work across the enterprise, build solid relationships and bring an increase in diverse supplier revenue to their contingent labor program.
Enter Horizontal Talent. As the second-largest ethnic minority-owned business in the Twin Cities, we were uniquely positioned to help this energy company achieve their goals. They quickly recognized the value of our services and the quality of our IT candidates. Thanks to our consistent performance, we’ve been a top three contract staffing supplier since day one.
Our deep expertise in IT staffing enabled us to step in and deliver exceptional talent for each of this energy company’s locations. We supplied them with flexible staffing solutions and high-quality IT talent for their day-to-day business needs as well as some of their most high-profile transitions and projects. This contributed significantly to their diverse spend target.
Horizontal Talent’s offices across the U.S. helped us effectively service each of this energy company’s corporate HQ locations. Our recruiting team meets each candidate face-to-face to build personal connections. Our account managers meet directly with the hiring managers to fully grasp what type of talent will be best suited to their needs.
After establishing ourselves as this energy company’s go-to staffing supplier, they reached out to our sister company, Horizontal Digital, to improve the user experience and digital strategy of their corporate website redesign.
Since our partnership began, we’ve placed over 200 consultants with this client, with an average tenure of five years. Many of these consultants have gone on to work on additional projects, while others have become permanent employees. Currently, over 35 Horizontal Talent consultants are staffed onsite to provide technical expertise.
This client trusts Horizontal Talent to deliver the right candidate for the right project every time. We’ve been one of their top suppliers for more than a decade and continue to invest in this rewarding partnership.
