“I am very impressed with the ease of use and responsiveness of your team that I have found while working with Workstream. Once set up, all I have to do is click a button to turn the job posting on and I can manage everything from my phone, if I am not at my computer”
Sara GilBride, Owner of Dream Dinners
Dream Dinners has grown steadily since it was launched in 2002 - along with their expansion came the need for a more automated hiring process. Having to drive to and from numerous locations over extensive commercial areas was taking a toll on their hiring staff. This led their Regional Manager and HR Director, Penny Bowers, to seek out resources for an effective solution.
Working hand in hand with Workstream, Dream Dinners has realized a significant change in their numbers - they have seen a 70% decrease in hours spent on the screening process. So how did they do it?
Dream Dinners felt the need to streamline their hiring process since their business is currently spread over 22 states, with several cities boasting of multiple branches.
Penny shares that while she was at first reluctant to try out a new platform, she was impressed by the Workstream team during the initial demo and subsequent discussions where they touched on the growing pains that Dream Dinners was experiencing. Throughout the entire conversation, the Workstream team would stop when needed and zero in on areas of interest to the company, ensuring that each issue would be addressed.
Working together, they were able to identify what was needed and Workstream was able to provide long-term solutions:
Penny also loved that with Workstream, new hire paperwork could be filled out online and signed digitally. This helped to cut back on hours spent collating documents and onboarding staff and eliminated the need to submit documents in person.
Since using Workstream, Dream Dinners has noticed a drastic improvement in their hiring. The numbers tell a success story:
To wrap it up: Though initially hesitant to step out of their comfort zone, Penny and the Dream Dinners team were won over by Workstream’s intuitiveness, budget-friendly pricing, and stellar customer service. It only goes to show that for every set of problems, there’s a corresponding solution - and trying something new can pay off exponentially.
