  • industry: TransportationConsumer

The Situation

CXC partnered with an international airline based in Hong Kong, flying to over 162 destinations in 42 countries around the world. Currently employing 33,000 people worldwide, it is one of Hong Kong’s biggest employers.

Before engaging CXC, this company required a compliant, cost-effective solution for managing their contingent workforce in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, they needed to:

  • Improve administrative efficiency across their panel of 30+ recruitment agencies
  • Move to one, standardised contractor agreement for all non-employee workers
  • Improve compliance of non-employee workers, and better manage visas and insurances
  • Reduce risks including co-employment and data exposure
  • Reduce and better manage spend across the entire non-employee population.

To meet these goals, and better manage their contingent workers into the future, they went to tender in 2011 to source a single payroll provider.

The account team in CXC Global is strong on professional recruitment and HR advisory, highly committed and dedicated.

CXC's Solution

CXC won the tender as the only vendor-neutral provider in the market and implemented an end-to-end Managed Service Program (MSP).

With an on-site team based in Hong Kong, CXC’s solution established an employer-of-record, contractor management outsourcing service for all contractors, regardless of sourcing method.

CXC’s solution includes:

  • Engaging with agencies to ensure efficient running of the recruitment process, including query management
  • On-site recruitment process training for Hiring Managers
  • Monthly reports regarding agency suppliers
  • Liaising with Hiring Managers for upcoming contractor requirements
  • A single point of contact for agencies and Hiring Managers to provide feedback
  • Market intel, industry trends data and insights
  • CV screening and short-listing
  • On-site contractor care and management
  • Actively managing a talent pool via a custom technology tool
  • Tenure management and renewals for non-employee workers

In 2015, CXC was heavily involved in the implementation of a talent pool solution for the hiring of contingent workers. As part of this process, CXC screened CVs using enterprise IT capabilities.
