With over 70 years of industry experience, LaSalle Bristol offers quality service, innovation and people to their customers.

LaSalle Bristol has over 14 facilities located strategically across America that are within close proximity to its customers.
Having multiple facilities at various locations also means that more effort has to be placed into hiring, especially for their warehouse positions. Since LaSalle Bristol is widely known given that they have started way back in the 1900s, they had no problem attracting applicants. Yet, the problem that they frequently faced was the lack of ability to attract the right talents that could carry out the job requirements with minimum training.
Additionally, their influx of applicants came from multiple job portals such that it was difficult for them to keep track of each applicant and respond to them swiftly. Hence, LaSalle Bristol started looking for an all-in-one applicant-tracking-system (ATS) that could help them conduct hiring at a fast and efficient pace.
In light of the identified challenges, LaSalle Bristol engaged Workstream and its services to help them improve and upgrade their hiring process. With the help of Workstream, LaSalle Bristol has seen an 80% increase in quality applicants just within the first month of listing 4 job positions across the 14 facilities.
Workstream has helped create a more streamlined HR process for LaSalle Bristol. This is done through integrating applications from multiple job boards to a single dashboard for easier access and tracking of the status of each applicant.
With the smart screening function of Workstream, LaSalle Bristol was able to filter through the clutter of applicants by setting customized quizzes and test. This allows LaSalle Bristol to save time on manually filtering through the applications.
LaSalle Bristol made use of the text-to-apply function to provide ease and convenience of hiring through the mobile phone for both applicants and employers. Messages can also be automated so as t0 reduce the lag time in replies.
