Revolutionising talent acquisition through innovative technology
The Early Talent Consultancy's role was to select, implement and embed an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) across 10 countries for a global manufacturer. This project marked the company's first-ever global ATS, enabling a digital transformation of their talent acquisition.
Selecting the technology
To ensure the right ATS was chosen, focus groups were carried out within the company including hiring managers, employees and the HR team to understand their current recruiting experience and what improvements they’d like to see. This helped shape the criteria of what was needed for a long term sustainable solution for the organisation. After viewing several ATS providers, two were shortlisted and the global HR team tested the systems and chose SmartRecruiters as they felt it was the most intuitive, had the right functionality and language skills required for candidates and hiring managers.
Design and implementation
Ensuring that the HR team's input was listened to was critical, as they would support with hiring manager engagement as well as be the primary users of the system. Throughout the project, a core HR team was actively engaged with the users by mapping current processes to understand where improvements needed to be made to design a sustainable and great user experience. Their involvement in the design and testing phases provided valuable insights and feedback, ensuring that the ATS fulfilled the needs of global users.
