  • COMPANY SIZE Large - 50,000+ employees



A global medical device company was working on a new, large-scale (30 million RMB) project. As part of the overall business case, the company needed to develop a detailed talent solutions and resource plan spanning multiple streams including Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS), Business Intelligence, Geographic Information Systems, website, and IT infrastructure.



In discussions with the client, Robert Half recruitment experts recommended the appointment of a Business Analyst to each stream. This would prove vital in determining the IT requirements for the program, and craft data-driven recommendations for relevant stakeholders.

In addition, Robert Half advised engaging a Project Manager for each stream, who would play a leading role planning the scope of projects, and the methods of execution, monitoring, and control.

Recognising the scope of the project, Robert Half conducted a full talent search for business analysts and project managers. While Robert Half consultants were mindful of focusing on candidates with relevant skills and experience across each stream, focus was also given to professionals who could cross boundaries and offer support in other areas. Robert Half experts leveraged all available recruitment channels including our extensive database of talent, internal and external referrals, and other major job boards to source high-quality talent.

By harnessing this combination of resources, Robert Half successfully sourced a team comprised of a Business Analyst, four project managers, two solutions architects, a Systems Engineer and an Infrastructure Manager.


With the support of candidates sourced through Robert Half, the client’s project has been successfully implemented. In total, the project saw seven Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) consolidated into two, the implementation of a new Business Intelligence tool (Power BI), the integration of Power BI with a Geographic Information System, and a complete overhaul of website structures.

The expertise Robert Half candidates brought to the company meant the project was completed on time and within budget. Further major IT infrastructure improvements have subsequently been successfully rolled out including upgrades and improvements to helpdesks and the broader IT network.

The company now has a more efficient IT system that delivers cost savings, improved functionality, and a competitive edge that is underpinning improved business performance.
