The previous HR Director left the company at the time when Paulig Belgium had planned the opening of a new factory in the forthcoming months as an extension to the already existing Poco Loco plant. With a difficult and challenging market landscape to hire people (low unemployment market), Paulig was on a business critical path from an HR perspective and asked Essensys to provide a temporary HR Director who could manage this business critical situation and make the transition towards the to be hired permanent HR Director.
Essensys provided a solid and seasoned temporary HR Director who eagerly embraced the challenge.
