In this new partnership, Novotus will provide full scale RPO services to assist North Pole, Inc. with its immediate staffing needs to assist with their worldwide holiday wish fulfillment and toy production operations.
After the unexpected popularity of the “Elf on the Shelf”, North Pole, Inc. experienced a dramatic decline in productivity. With so many elves deployed for active child observation duty, few elves remained to operate toy production and delivery lines. By engaging the Novotus team with their industry leading talent research platform and full suite of recruiting services, North Pole, Inc. anticipates being back up to full operating levels almost immediately.
“It’s heartbreaking to think how many children would’ve been waking up on Christmas morning without presents,” stated Chris Claus, North Pole CEO and Chief Talent Officer. “Deciding to partner with Novotus was as easy as spotting a red-nosed reindeer in the fog,” continued Claus. “Given our talent depletion problems and Novotus’ outstanding track record for quickly sourcing and recruiting highly talented candidates, we are confident we will be operating at full capacity soon and our goal of 100% JIT gift delivery will be achieved again this year!”
The Novotus recruiting model, customized as usual, will provide sourcing and recruiting for all levels of elf management and operations. All elf applicants will be reviewed, initial phone screens will be conducted and qualified candidates will be submitted to the North Pole Inc. Elf Resources team. Novotus will also provide weekly ETS (Elf Tracking System) metrics to follow each elf candidate through the hiring process.
Providing RPO services to our valued clients makes each day feel like Christmas,” said Mike Mayeux, Novotus CEO. “Each client is a gift and we are privileged to work alongside them and partnering with North Pole, Inc. is certainly gratifying for our team, “ he continued. “We enjoy bringing smiles to the faces of candidates and hiring managers alike, and knowing that our work here will also help spread joy to children worldwide is particularly rewarding.”
Following the announcement, shares of North Pole, Inc., traded on the ICEDAQ, skyrocketed like a sleigh from a rooftop. The press conference announcing the partnership was attended by representatives for Tooth Fairy, LLC and The Easter Bunny Company. Both indicated they may consider Novotus for recruitment process outsourcing services as well.
