Case Study:

Heritage Hotel Management

Industry:

Hospitality

Number of
Employees:

850

Average number
of ads per month:

13

The Challenges:

Hiring Managers were managing the recruitment process manually and wanted a more efficient process.

With Hiring Managers based at multiple hotels, there was no consistency in the process and no visibility for head office HR

The advertising and branding was not consistent across the multiple hotels.

The Solution:

  • Implement a Group Careers Website
  • Implement Response Management Tools
  • Advertising Services
  • Resumes Database

The ideal solution for Heritage Hotel Management was a system that could support a decentralised process but allow for visibility and quality control of the process. They also wanted to ensure that their branding and communications were consistent.

Talent Propeller set up a group careers website, which allows each hotel to showcase its individual brand. We also created advertising templates and ensured these were used consistently across multiple media. Each Hiring Manager was given access to the Response Management tools, which meant they were able to manage the process themselves. As all bookings and applications go through a centralised system, HR can monitor the process, and ensure quality control and consistency.

Feedback from Heritage Hotel Management

"Our process is much more efficient. We find that the ability to respond to candidates, utilise screening questionnaires, access a data base of previous applicants, and the notes section have made a big impact on our recruitment process."

Case Study:

Coffs Harbour City Council

Industry:

Local Government

Number of
Employees:

550

Average number
of ads per month:

5

The Challenges:

HR was planning to temporarily revert to a manual recruitment process after a series of poor experiences with another e-recruitment provider.

There was pressure to find an alternative user friendly system that worked, and provided a good level of support at an affordable cost.

The Solution:

  • Implement a Careers Website
  • Implement Response Management tools
  • Advertising Services
  • Resumes Database

When we first spoke to Coffs Harbour City Council they were utilising another e-recruitment provider, but finding that it was not user friendly and the service was not meeting their needs. They wanted to be able to give their managers control to cull and short list applicants, allowing HR to step out of this process as much as possible. They also wanted a solution for advertising their internal vacancies.

We set up an internal careers page in addition to their careers website, allowing them to manage that process separately. We also worked closely with them to support them in rolling out the response management tools to the Hiring Managers.

Feedback from Coffs Harbour City Council

"We have completely streamlined the whole recruitment process and it is a more user friendly system. The support from the staff has been outstanding. They have made the ability to achieve a higher standard of our recruitment procedures utilising a more cost effective, timely package and it being extremely user friendly is a bonus."

Case Study:

Leech and Partners

Industry:

Accounting

Number of
Employees:

38

Product Implemented:

Shortlisters

About:

Leech and Partners is an accounting firm with 38 staff spread across two offices. As the company has no dedicated HR Professional, HR and recruitment duties fell to Chris Heffernan, one of the Directors.

First Scenario:

In mid 2012, Chris set about hiring a Receptionist for their Ashburton Branch. He placed an ad in the local paper at a cost of $300 which resulted in 15 applicants. Chris interviewed each of these applicants and hired the person who seemed to stand out as the most suitable candidate. Unfortunately, this did not out to be a successful hire, and the person left within 90 days. In all, Chris spent 25 hours of his time (which might otherwise have been billed out at $290 an hour) without a successful result.

Second Scenario:

In September 2012, Chris decided to use the Talent Propeller Shortlisters service. Chris was given a shortlist of candidates to meet and at the insistence of Sharon Ballantyne Davies (the Shortlisters Specialist) he met with a candidate who was unsuccessful in the last round who re-applied to the second advert. This new employee hired through the Shortlisting service has made a great impression at Leech and Partners and is now a valuable part of the team.


This time Chris spent 3 hours on the recruitment process and made a great hire for less than $1000 with a new advertising strategy to reduce their advertising spend. The response management tools cut down the amount of time they were spending on administration and allowed them to manage the recruitment process much more efficiently, saving time. The resumes feature enabled this organisation to tag good candidates and build a talent pool of potential candidates which again, allowed them to reduce costs.
