How RPI Helped Data Device Corporation Activate Passive Talent for a Confidential Role

Data Device Corporation (DDC) is a company that has designed and manufactured high-reliability Connectivity, Power and Control Solutions for aerospace, defence, and industrial applications for over 50 years. DDC is considered a market leader, and although they have manufacturing operations in New York, California, Mexico, and the United Kingdom, they are a global operation.

DDC was hiring for a confidential role that required specific management experience and a unique skill set. The position was also based in a remote location, and these multiple challenges meant DDC struggled to find suitable candidates.

Beginning with an in-depth briefing meeting, Solutions Driven then used various proprietary techniques and prior knowledge of the required market to source candidates.

Expert knowledge of passive candidates was also beneficial as both teams knew it wasn’t a role many job seekers would be looking for.

Using the Candidate Fit Scorecard, agreed on in the initial Scoping call, a long list of candidates who matched DDC’s requirements was sourced. They were presented to DDC to ensure alignment across the two teams.

Within four weeks of the project kick-off, Solutions Driven had already presented a shortlist of prospects for the role.
