A premium CPG company seeks recruiting support for their growing team


1 location and 50 employees


Piscataway, NJ

Our Challenge

Due to pandemic labor shortages, a growing CPG company was relying on outside agencies to staff their quickly growing production team. As a result, labor costs had ballooned by over 25%, while the management team still struggled to reliably staff their busy shifts. The business owner knew the solution was to phase out the employment agencies, but lacked the bandwidth and know-how to source talent in the tightening labor market.

Our Solution

E|H provided the company with its own temporary, part-time talent team. With a dedicated talent consultant utilizing multiple job boards, consistently communicating with candidates and exploring creative solutions — such as local outreach, social media marketing and referral programs — E|H brought the company to 100% internal staffing and successfully reduced labor cost to sustainable levels. E|H also developed a robust set of job posting templates, interview guides and SOPs the company will continue using into the future.

The Results

Hiring during the height of the pandemic was extremely challenging. Still, with persistence and diligence, E|H’s talent team onboarded 25+ line-level employees across various departments, including food production, quality assurance and sanitation. This enabled the business to exceed production demands, which has in turn allowed them to expand their distribution across the northeast. Additionally, the E|H consultant became a trusted resource for the company’s leadership team, and what began as a temporary project has expanded to an ongoing HR and recruiting partnership.

“It’s been an exciting journey to visit the production plant knowing I helped build the team, and feels even better to watch some of those employees work their way up in the organization.”
