Even though Delta outsourced its HR, it kept recruiting in house. But when it merged with Northwest, it turned to PeopleScout, an RPO, to recruit hard-to-find talent like flight attendants with foreign languages skills and good customer service people.
One of the victims of September 11 was the airline industry. Delta had to service its call center customers at a lower cost. The solution was offshoring.

Wipro routed extra calls to Mumbai and Pune, stretching its resources to support the airline in its time of need.
