Reschedge Helps Percolate Escape the Endless Interview Scheduling GrindOctober 31, 2013 No Comments
Percolate is a thoughtful technology company that works with the world’s top brands to generate relevant content for social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest. Keeping Fortune 500 brands’ customers engaged at social scale takes special expertise, so Manhattan-based Percolate is frequently looking for team members who have what it takes to build a new approach to brand marketing.
The Challenge: Coordinating Recruiting – Without a Recruiting Coordinator
Percolate has product and business teams operating worldwide, which is great for changing the way companies build brands in the Digital Age. But it’s a challenge for the Percolate recruiting team: Richard Fye, the company’s director of talent, says it was “incredibly time consuming” to set up meetings between many people, often across multiple locations.
The company doesn’t have a dedicated recruiting coordinator on staff, and the talent management team prefers to focus on finding the right person for the right job. But the need to coordinate schedules across product and business teams in multiple locations was taking time away from sourcing talent and assessing candidates.
“We didn’t want to bring someone on full time just to coordinate interviews, so I started looking for alternatives,” Fye recalls. “The first time I saw Reschedge, I was blown away.”
The Solution: A Virtual Recruiting Coordinator That Eliminates the Hassles
Reschedge delivered the tools Fye and his team needed and more: With an intuitive interface that enables users to import company contacts from multiple calendar and email platforms (including Google and Outlook) and applicant tracking system (ATS) plugins from popular systems like Greenhouse, Newton, The Resumator and Lumesse TalentLink, Reschedge took the hassles out of coordinating meetings, managing messages and reserving rooms and time.
“It’s amazingly intuitive,” Fye notes, describing how he can now start the process by simply clicking “Schedule Interview” and instantly receive a menu of interview lineup options that factor in schedules and availability by automatically checking calendars. No matter what type of interview the Percolate team needs, Reschedge coordinates it automatically, including one-on-one meetings, panel interviews, phone conferences and schedules across multiple locations.
Once the Percolate team member selects the ideal option, Reschedge automatically sends and tracks invitations, syncs with the ATS or calendar, reserves rooms and keeps tabs on responses. A convenient dashboard allows the recruiting team to see where they stand in real time – all in one convenient location.
The Result: More Time to Focus on What Really Matters – Finding the Right Staff
“With Reschedge, I get 90% of the time I used to spend on coordinating interviews back,” Fye reports. “The integration with our ATS makes it so simple to manage the recruiting process. Reschedge is a really thoughtful, stable and scalable product, and the support from the team is exceptional. I recommend Reschedge without reservations.”
Now that they’ve found a way to handle interview scheduling and rescheduling tasks, the Percolate team can get back to building a different kind of brand marketing company to serve their blue-chip clients – without adding a recruiting coordinator to the headcount.
