Recruitment marketing challenges addressed by Symphony Talent’s full suite

Clients interviewed for this study noted consistent operational and cost challenges in recruitment marketing and hiring. Four universal concerns that Symphony Talent supports include: 

  • Improved efficiencies: “We used to go into the system ourselves to do emails, and it is much more efficient to have Symphony Talent’s automated job postings and automated emails. We can simply flip a switch on, and they are always running in the background, so we don’t even need to think about it.” - Director, Talent Acquisition and HR Operations
  • Reduced time spent managing media spend with improved visibility: “Prior to having Symphony Talent's Programmatic Media (PM), we would have each recruiter go to the individual job boards and post ads individually, including the large aggregate sites like Indeed, Monster and Career Builder. Now, we can specify something as a hot job, and it is posted automatically to all the sites.” - Manager, Talent Acquisition
  • Reduced time spent qualifying talent: “Symphony Talent does a great job of staying on top of the passing score threshold to ensure we are getting the best quality applicants in the door. We now pre-screen all our candidates and they only move to the interview phase if they have passed Symphony Talent’s Assessment. This has helped us reduce the number of interviews by at least 50 – 60%.” - Manager, Assessments
  • Reduced cost per hire with more targeted spend: “We look at the cost of candidates coming from the Talent Network (CRM & referrals) vs. the cost coming from media. In the most recent QBR, we found that 17% of our hires came from our Talent Network at an avg cost per hire of $169/candidate versus an average cost per hire of $246/candidate from media.” - Senior Director, Global Talent Acquisition
  • Consolidate existing systems: “We were able to get rid of a traditional job distribution tool which saved us $25-30k/year.” - Director of Talent Sourcing and Recruitment Marketing
