A Case Study

How We Solved The Staffing Problem At Bayer's Dekalb Plant

Snapshot Summary

In this case study we outline how our team aided Bayer in the recruitment process for their regional facility in Kearney Nebraska. For the Dekalb plant in Nebraska, being located in a small town has its perks, but a large available workforce isn’t one of them. Bayer needed a recruitment video that would go the distance in speaking to the unique qualities and benefits of both the company and the location, in hopes of drawing new talent from across the country.

Through our team's dedicated efforts, we gave this plant a voice and a chance for potential new employees to see themselves with a positive future at a great organization.

This investment will continue to pay dividends for Bayer as a positive recruitment tool for years to come.

Dekalb Plant

One of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, Bayer owns a wide variety of agriculture and natural science brands including Dekalb Genetics Corporation, a leader in growing and processing hybrid corn and other products.

The Problem: Recruitment

When Bayer's Corporate Office contacted us in 2021, they knew their Nebraska Dekalb Plant needed help.

The plant just finished the latest season's harvest without being fully staffed, and Bayer wanted to hire over a dozen positions for next season in order to be able run at target capacity.

In Came Our Team

The Process

Our approach to Bayer's recruiting problem was threefold.

To start, we worked closely with their corporate and facility leaders to create a video strategy that would solve their problem.

Next, we travelled to Kearny Nebraska to not only captured "bushels" of footage at the plant, but talk with current employees about why they valued working at this Bayer plant.

Finally, our team took back not only the footage, but a first-hand look into needs of the business, and headed into the editing suite to give the plant a voice that would help attract potential talent from around the country.
