From Recruitment to Talent Acquisition: A Strategic Rebranding Journey

By Fatema Pipalyawala, Talent Acquisition Lead

We are pleased to announce that, following thorough research and process improvements, our Recruitment Department has undergone a rebranding initiative and is now known as the Talent Acquisition Department. As part of this transition, Sean Gallagher has been promoted to the role of Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition & Development, while I, Fatema Pipalyawala, have been appointed as the Talent Acquisition Lead. Additionally, we welcome Kunal Sachdeva to our team as the coordinator.

The traditional recruitment department has long been associated with tasks such as hiring & onboarding in a stipulated time span. While these functions are undoubtedly crucial, they only scratch the surface of what a modern recruitment team can achieve.

By rebranding and realigning the focus towards acquiring and nurturing top talent, companies can position themself for sustained success in today’s competitive business landscape. It’s not just a name change, it’s a strategic imperative for driving growth, innovation, and organizational excellence. The shift towards a Talent Acquisition Department represents a broader recognition of the strategic importance of attracting, developing, and retaining top talent.

Tips to Refer & Earn – Referral Bonus Policy

We have had numerous questions regarding how our Referral bonus process works so we wanted to take a few minutes to explain it and how it works.


  • Your referral applies online at and they have the option to list a “referral” on the application. They need to list your name here or tell us you referred them during the interview (it is the first question we ask)
  • If they are hired and successfully complete training, the person you referred will need to work a minimum of 2 shifts per week for 90 days
  • As the person referring the new employee, you also need to work a minimum of 2 shifts weekly for 90 days (if you have a week of vacation that is fine and will not be held against you)
  • Once the 90 days is completed, Talent Acquisition sends the notice to the accounting department on the first week of the following month (all referral notices are sent at the same time)

To qualify for the referral bonus, the referred candidate must meet the following criteria:

  1. Be hired as a regular employee of ASP Incorporated.
  2. Successfully complete the probationary period of three(3) months;
  3. Remain actively employed for a minimum of three (3) months from the date of hire (Cannot be on a leave of absence or not actively picking up shifts); and the referring Employee must also be actively working shifts.
  4. The referred candidate must be in an active contract, if the contract was/is terminated during the probationary period, the referral will not be eligible for payment.

Please note, if you have any questions or concerns about your referrals please only contact Sean Gallagher, Senior Manager- Talent Acquisition and Development at sean@
