We're delighted to have won the APAC Business Partnership Excellence Award alongside MERCK at the HRO Today Association Awards APAC 2022.  

For more than 15 years, the HRO Today Association has recognised accomplishments in human resources and leadership across North America, EMEA, APAC, and MENA. We’re especially proud to win in the Business Partnership Excellence category as it reflects the quality of our solutions and the strength of our business partnership. 

Resource Solutions has been working closely with Merck since 2016 to deliver a full, end-to-end RPO programme. Our partnership has evolved to support six countries in APAC and is aligned to support Merck’s organic business growth strategy in region.

Laser focus on hiring talent

With an unrelenting emphasis on semiconductor and engineering hiring professionals, we have adopted ‘watch’ talent pipelining strategies to attract high-frequency movers. The result? 100% of Merck’s 2022 hiring was completed in the first 6 months of this year.

RSintelligence delivering a winning talent strategy

Leveraging several products from RSIntelligence, we precisely mapped the local market to identify skills-sets and future talent pools. A proactive APAC talent workforce proposal followed, adopting location and multiple ‘build-talent’ solutions to outpace Merck’s competitors and align seamlessly to Merck’s organic growth strategy. The proposed initiatives now form the priority for 2022 and beyond, expanding our scope into areas such as Early Careers hiring, a first for Merck Korea.

Brand ambassadorship

Resource Solutions has stepped up as advocates and ambassadors for Merck, taking on day-one orientation, driving the employee referral program, being front and centre at early-stage early careers hiring events and running Merck’s GOglobal program locally for the Merck Korea business.

Hazel Lancashire, APAC Managing Director at Resource Solutions, comments:

“Securing a win in the Business Partnership Excellence category showcases the strong and ever-evolving partnership between Merck and Resource Solutions in region. The recognition received for this award confirms the excellent work our teams do day-in, day-out to support Merck’s growth and positioning ambitions.

“Leveraging the expertise and data provided by our RSIntelligence team, we’ve enabled expansion and location conversations that have formed part of the Merck business’ growth strategy. This truly exceptional piece of work demonstrates why we have such a trusted partnership”

At Resource Solutions, we’re 100% focused on providing sustainable recruitment solutions, reliable best-in-class service delivery, and building future-focused, agile RPO models that align with our client growth strategies. This laser focus on sourcing and securing critical and volume talent needs enables us to co-drive strategic client talent agendas.   

This exciting announcement follows our win for the EMEA Business Partnership Excellence – Finance Award alongside HSBC MENA, once again for the Business Partnership Excellence category.
