“With the automation that Workstream provides, hiring has been much faster and efficient”
Robert McGee, COO of Straus Family Creamery
The first 100% certified organic creamery in the US, Straus Family Creamery is largely driven by its mission to help sustain family farms in the Marin and Sonoma Counties, by providing high quality organic dairy products. They also aim to support family farming and revitalize rural communities everywhere through advocacy and education.
With their own farm, Straus Dairy Farm, they are able to ensure that they deliver premium organic, gluten-free dairy products with minimal processing at all times. Moreover, Straus Family Creamery also purchases certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified milk from eight other organic family farms across Northern California's Marin and Sonoma Counties.
Despite being in a niche job market, Straus Family Creamery was able to drastically increase their number of qualified applicants. How was Workstream able to help them?
With multiple outlets across the country, Straus Family Creamery found themselves constantly seeking hourly workers to help manage daily operations. However, it is a struggle for them to manually screen through and interview each individual application across multiple portals such as Indeed, Google Jobs, Facebook Jobs, ZipRecruiter, and Craigslist. Additionally, being in the manufacturing industry results in a low influx of job applications since millennials today are more inclined towards industries perceived to be more "fun," such as the food and beverage industry.
To address the challenges faced, Straus Family Creamery made use of Workstream’s customizable features to ease their hiring process.
Workstream has helped create a more streamlined HR process for Straus Family Creamery by redirecting all job applications from the different job boards into a single dashboard for easy access.
