“Applicant Tracking has allowed us to reduce our time-to-hire and significantly decrease our recruitment spend.”
JM Wilson is a managing agency and surplus lines insurance broker providing specialty insurance products to independent insurance agents for risks that are not insurable in the standard marketplace.
Before teaming up with CareerBuilder, JM Wilson faced a number of recruitment challenges. “We needed to take our recruitment process to the next level in terms of mobile and attracting a younger demographic,” recalls Sarah O’Day, JM Wilson’s HR Manager.
In addition to reaching a younger candidate base and improving their mobile optimization, JM Wilson needed to attract a steady supply of qualified candidates in order to achieve their long-term goals. On top of all this, the company was spending too much money on a staffing firm and needed a way to reduce cost-per-hire and time-to-hire.
Having used CareerBuilder products in the past, JM Wilson turned to CareerBuilder to help streamline the hiring process and tackle these mounting recruitment challenges.
By adding Applicant Tracking to their existing CareerBuilder products, JM Wilson was able to successfully build a pipeline of candidates with whom they could quickly and easily communicate.
The results were undeniable. After implementing Applicant Tracking, JM Wilson received five times the number of candidates in less than half the time. This significant drop in both cost-per-hire and time-to-hire helped them eliminate the need for staffing agencies entirely and saved them more than $20,000 a year in recruitment spend. Now, nearly 100 percent of JM Wilson’s hires come from Applicant Tracking.
On top of these great results, O’Day and her team weren’t just pleased with the products, but with the people, too. “The response from our CareerBuilder products has been both positive and cost-efficient, resulting in a rewarding relationship with a supportive CareerBuilder team that has a genuine interest in helping JM Wilson reach the next level,” says O’Day.
By modernizing their recruiting process with Applicant Tracking, JM Wilson was able to ensure their future hiring needs will be met, and transform their business by bringing in the younger candidates they needed.
“JM Wilson has used CareerBuilder for over eight years along with other resources, and now we work with CareerBuilder exclusively. Applicant Tracking has allowed us to reduce our time-to-hire and significantly decrease our recruitment spend,” says O’Day.
