We’re thrilled to announce that, following a successful pilot with the leading food company in the Mexican city of Monterrey, we’ll be expanding operations nationwide to transform Sigma’s recruitment processes at scale.

Sigma is a global leader in the food industry, thanks to its broad portfolio of +50 brands in the categories of dairy and packaged meats, including San Rafael, La Villita, Campofrío, and Bar-S.

The company, which owns 210 distribution centers and 70 plants, employs over 45.000 people worldwide and operates in 18 countries across Latin America, Europe, and the US.


The main objectives we’re addressing in our collaboration deal are the following:

  1. Reduce Sigma’s time-to-hire

  2. Reduce the plant staffs’ early turnover

  3. Increase candidates’ satisfaction

  4. Digitize Sigma’s recruitment, providing KPIs and streamlining processes to allow recruiters to focus on high value-added tasks.

After a successful 3-month pilot in Monterrey’s plants and distribution centers, on which we managed to save +1000 hours of Sigma’s HR team and process +3600 candidates, we’ll roll-out operations nationwide, implementing Emi in all their Mexican operative facilities with a headcount above 100.

The roll-out will be carried out progressively by geographic regions, expecting Sigma’s 35 recruiters to be fully onboard and using Emi by the end of the year.

To accomplish the goals mentioned above, we’re carrying out these initiatives:

We’re excited to take up this challenge and keep transforming Sigma’s recruiting processes!
