Success Story

Nuclear Energy Recruitment Process Outsourcing

Nuclear Expertise Creating Workforce Solutions for Industry Leader


Known as a leading, large-scale utility and nuclear energy provider, our client demands highly-skilled talent to maintain its plant and engineering capabilities. Faced with extraordinary talent demands, System One implemented a comprehensive Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) program to support the company’s growing demand for nuclear talent. Leveraging our extensive experience, knowledge, and networks, we executed an end-to-end RPO workforce solution to support our client’s ongoing contingent and contract talent needs.

Client Scenario


With increased industry demands for nuclear engineers, project managers, schedulers, planners, assessors, and estimators, the client’s in-house human resources department was struggling to find qualified talent to fill more than 900 key positions in 12 months. Lacking a structured recruiting process and paralyzed by reporting requirements, the client’s HR team was challenged in all aspects of the recruiting process from inconsistencies in job titles and descriptions to internal communications. Our client needed a business partner that understood the complex nature of the nuclear industry and could provide strategic guidance relevant to crucial positions specific to their business.

System One Solution

With more than 25 years of extensive nuclear expertise, System One was called upon to partner with the client’s executive management, human resources, procurement, and field operations team to create a strategic hiring plan. As a result, System One deployed an RPO team to augment the client’s human resources department and provide recruiting strategy and tactics to solve their business challenges.

Through the implementation of recruiting guidelines and procedures specific to the client’s needs, System One removed inconsistencies within the job posting and requisition process. We assigned a dedicated nuclear recruiting team to provide the knowledge needed to recruit the best talent. By establishing workflow processes, System One removed barriers in the pre-hire and follow up processes. Based upon the success of the initial initiatives, System One was asked to develop and deploy additional recruiting efforts to train, implement diversity initiatives, manage internship programs, and coordinate special projects.

Client Benefits

Partnering with System One, the client benefits from a newly-focused internal HR and hiring teams. The implemented structure has reduced recruiting costs, increased candidate-to-hire conversion rates, and decreased the time it takes to hire qualified talent. Our dedicated nuclear recruiting team provides the client support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We deliver weekly recruiting metrics to measure the effectiveness of our efforts and watch for improvement opportunities.
