SQLI Case Study Cover

When SQLI Digital Experience’s Talent Manager, Frederik Pijls, and now former Head of People, Leen Van Puyvelde, were initially referred to Fetcher, they were skeptical. Frederik assumed it’d be a tool they’d maybe use for a few weeks, but not a long-term solution for their recruiting goals. However, after seeing Fetcher’s demo, they were thrilled with the platform’s capabilities and since then, it’s become a long-term solution to improving their hiring workflow.

Pain Point 1: Hiring Manager Motivation

The SQLI Digital recruiting team was experiencing some inconsistencies with its hiring managers — some were seeing great success in reaching out to candidates, and some weren’t seeing as strong of results. As Leen notes, “They often think that recruitment is something being done for them, but it’s a mutual effort.”

Solution

Fetcher’s team-based recruiting software gave the recruiting team and hiring managers a chance to work together from the start, developing search criteria and automated email outreach sequences for each role. With this, the hiring managers started to feel more involved in the hiring process and empowered to engage with candidates.

Paint Point 2: Hiring Manager Engagement

Previously, hiring managers did not have the time to fully engage with outreach to candidates. SQLI Digital was looking for tools to make this process less time consuming, while also increasing response rates.

Pain Point #3: Lack of a Pipeline for Open Positions

Prior to Fetcher, SQLI Digital’s candidate pipelines would dry up quickly, leaving its recruiting team with few options, longer hiring times, and more challenges.

Solution

Fetcher’s AI-powered talent sourcing software sends candidates in batches, while continuously learning SQLI Digital’s preferences. SQLI Digital Experience has seen a much steadier flow of candidates, giving them more control over their pipeline and ultimately leading to more choices in qualified candidates. “When we put the search in Fetcher, the good candidates come up, and they keep coming. That’s different from other search platforms,” says Frederik.

What You Can Do Now to Improve Hiring Workflows

Between candidates and hiring managers, developing a smooth process for everyone takes time and collaboration. What works for you as a recruiter may not work for hiring managers, or may be a hassle for candidates. By taking the following steps, you can build towards an efficient workflow that keeps everyone happy.

  • Map your full hiring workflow and where the touchpoints with involved parties are in your current process.

  • Determine where there are bottlenecks and/or frequent miscommunications between you, the hiring managers, and the candidates. This is a great opportunity to implement a candiate feedback survey to provide additional perspective on your process.

  • Look at your current team structure to determine if you need to add or shift roles in order to optimize workflow.

  • Assess the tools you are currently using, and whether there’s untapped potential with functions that could help with these bottlenecks.

  • If not, you may need to research additional strategies and tools to help improve communication or to automate parts of your hiring process.

  • Even with small changes to workflows, you’ll want to track performance to ensure the changes are actually improving your hiring flow!
