Filling the Talent Pipeline

Talent management starts with recruitment. CMC invests in processes and technology to evolve and grow our recruitment capabilities. Our applicant tracking system (ATS), for instance, maintains a record of our talent pool so we can identify qualified candidates for open positions. The ATS also tracks recruitment metrics, such as time to fill, candidate sourcing information and diverse hires. We share metrics scorecards with our field HR staff to improve future recruiting and retention strategies and use the ATS to track and analyze the quality of hires after one year of employment.

CMC also partners with local colleges and technical schools, offering scholarships and apprenticeships to identify and support talent entering the workforce. Many of our locations collaborate with universities to support talent development in roles of need. This includes sponsorships for two- or four-year apprenticeships where students divide their time between classroom learning and on-the-job training.

CMC Poland continued our successful collaboration with local technical high schools and universities in the Silesian Region and invited qualified students to participate in supervised learning experiences at our facilities. We supported the dual education study program that combines academic knowledge with practical training. The dual educational system for high school students focuses on roles such as mechanical technician, mechatronic technician, metallurgy process technician and railway professionals and lasts 5 years. For the Silesian University of Technology, the program focuses on faculty of mechanical engineering and the last seven semesters. Both high school and university students are eligible for CMC-sponsored scholarships. In 2022, we supported thirteen students and hired fourteen graduating students.
