Our whitepaper case study looks at:

  • The background and challenges faced before the project

    The University of Reading recognised the challenges with their recruitment processes, model and recruitment system. Here we outline what those challenges were that they felt could be improved with a new applicant tracking system.

  • Implementing the recruitment system

    With the University taking the decision to centralise recruitment activities and processes into HR, and provide hiring managers with more tools, information and increased autonomy, we look at the steps they took to achieve this.

  • Key learning points and considerations

    After being live with their new applicant tracking system for 6 months, we looked how it delivered the planned benefits along with one or two that were not so planned, but were welcome bonuses.

  • Outcomes and results

    Administration processes were transformed as a result of the University  implementing our ATS System. Here we outline what those were and developments planned for the future. 

This whitepaper also demonstrates how the University of Reading was able to reduce recruitment administration time by 25% as well as reducing time to hire to 6 weeks.
