Problem

Complicated Recruitment Process

Prior to working with Workstream, Envoy America had over 18 steps in their hiring process and handled between 1,500 and 3,000 job applications per month. With this many applicants and that many steps, organizing their candidates within the recruitment journey was difficult. They needed an applicant tracking system to help them streamline everything.

In addition, given that the company serves senior citizens, properly screening applicants is of paramount importance. Envoy America needed a software that is able to conduct background checks based on several criteria.

Solutions

Automated Screening and Personalized Dashboard

Envoy America was won over by Workstream’s pricing structure, as well as the software’s ease of use and intuitive features. Working closely with a Customer Success team member, they were able to customize the platform and tailor it specifically to their hiring needs:

  • Envoy America utilized a popular Workstream integration with a background checking software, Checkr, which is able to filter out candidates who do not meet their criteria.
  • Customizing and presetting the number of steps in the software ensured that all applicants go through the same process. Customizable interview formats and onboarding also gave their hiring process a personal touch.
  • An app dashboard (accessible even via mobile) that enables monitoring over every aspect of the hiring process, including an applicant tracking system, was instrumental in cutting down on hours spent on their hiring.
  • Automated messaging helped Envoy America manage the large pool of applicants better and improved the candidate experience.
