A fast growing ecommerce business was struggling to find and keep employees in marketing and sales.
The CEO asked his business consultant if he knew anyone who could help to improve their approach to talent acquisition and recruitment - and also help them to hire a new team of people. Our name came up and we met with the company.
TalentSum partnered with the company and began within a week or two. We helped them to identify and evaluate applicant tracking systems. We surveyed the voice of employees, interviewed executives and top employees. We collected the data and then translated it into insights to support change - and we also used what we learned to revise employer brand messaging and define candidate fit across culture, performance, and job-related skills.
We also helped the company adopt a better approach to hiring - including reaching out and engaging passive candidates, sourcing employees working at "top 50" competitors, building up a talent pool for multiple team roles, and dramatically boosting applicant flow with better attraction marketing. Our team provided sourcing and recruiting support for the hiring of the Senior VP of Digital, Head of SEO, and several other senior and director level employees in marketing and sales.
