Talent Acquisition Strategy, Process & Implementation – Scientific


High-growth pre-IPO scientific technology company needed to hire additional PhD scientists in order to develop and operationalize new products – in a short time and a competitive recruiting environment. Their human resources management capabilities were not sufficient to meet the goal.

  • Talent acquisition strategy & plan
  • Employment brand program
  • Development of selection criteria & interview templates
  • Worked with immigration attorney to manage process of obtaining work visas for non-resident scientists
  • Development of talent sourcing plan and infrastructure, data management system, tools, training & execution support
  • Managed implementation


40+ qualified scientists hired. Flexible and scale-able talent acquisition infrastructure in place to support the organization’s future hiring needs.

 Feedback from Client:

“A true innovative collaborator….Marilou brought the best out of me as we worked together to develop an end-to-end talent management system for the start-up company I was leading. She brought structure and deep content knowledge to the task of translating my management philosophy into a recruiting process, talent management and rewards and recognition system which created a high performance work team that produced results. I have used the bones of our system to manage 3 great teams. This work resulted in a book chapter in the Product Development and Management Toolbook, and is one of the secrets of my career success.

She is an encouraging and creative partner and coach. I recommend her without reservation.”   – Chief Technology Officer
