Email #16 - thyssenkrupp BILSTEIN Partnering with Kroger
We would like to thank you all for supporting the efforts in the fight to stop the spread of the coronavirus by staying at home the last two weeks. It is certainly not something that any of you asked for and we know the burden that it places on you and your families.
As you know we are dependent on our customers demand and we cannot run when our customers don’t. Based on our current shutdown planning, we foresee that in the short-term our customers are not going to be providing enough demand for us to keep everyone working full-time. With this in mind, we have been reaching out to other companies in the community who are in need of workers to try and generate temporary employment opportunities for Bilsteiners.
Our first success has been in developing a dedicated Talent Requisition process for current tk BILSTEIN associates with Kroger.
If you are interested in part time short-term work with Kroger you can either scan the QR code on the flyer attached or click this link to get an application into the system: https://career8.successfactors.com/sfcareer/jobreqcareerpvt?jobId=1590279&company=Kroger&username=&st=4E07879DF6043DF9604EE39A60DB242F40E24285
In this application you can look for opportunities or Kroger will reach out with available ones. Kroger has a lot of applicants at this time, but they are trying to use this dedicated requisition to find people from trusted partners such as thyssenkrupp Bilstein. We are in contact with other companies as well and hope to be able to share additional opportunities with you all soon.
We fully intend to doing everything in our power to preserve the BILSTEIN business in Hamilton that we have all worked so hard to build together. We are and will continue to make every effort we can in an attempt to support our employees and their families in this current time of need. Please know that if you have the ability to accept short-term work, such as the opportunity above with Kroger, as long as you remain a BILSTEIN employee you will continue to receive the healthcare benefits for which you are currently enrolled.
We are looking forward to having you back in the plant as soon as possible.
