Filling several key positions—without the high cost & long time to fill.

During a time of growth, Carlstar's internal HR staff was challenged to meet the financial and time-bound recruiting demands of the business for key positions that would help propel the operating agenda.

Turning to traditional contingent recruiters for assistance, Carlstar quickly had over 100 agencies working on open positions—and a massive vendor management problem! With so many agencies trampling the same ground, it was difficult to surface the right candidates. Worse, managing so many external vendors demanded more time than the small HR team could spare.

Carlstar needed a better way to find the right people—without being pulled in a hundred different directions. That’s where Chained Wolf stepped in.

Like high-performance off-road tires, the new recruitment process was built to overcome Carlstar’s most challenging terrain: hiring the right people.
