Sofab and Equinox World: the winning duo in metallurgy

Deux travailleurs internationaux travaillant dans l'industrie de la construction embauché par Equinox Wolrd

Since 2018, Sofab, a leader in the metallurgy sector, has embarked on a fruitful partnership with Equinox World. Metallurgy is a demanding industry that requires sharp technical skills. Sofab was in search of specific talents: engineers, industrial designers, production directors, welding assemblers and CNC operators. A major challenge was the language barrier. Equinox World offered a tailored international recruitment solution for Sofab. The collaboration resulted in a 100% retention rate of foreign workers. This success is attributed to the excellent integration of employees who quickly adapted to their new professional and cultural environment In less than nine months, thanks to a state-subsidized program in collaboration with the MIFI, foreign workers have started learning French and, although they have not yet mastered it perfectly, they are now able to communicate in French, which facilitates their integration. This illustrates the positive impact of a well-designed international recruitment strategy. Sofab is a striking example: successful integration, employee satisfaction and productivity gains. Equinox World remains a partner of choice for any company wishing to embrace such an approach.
