HANOVER, MD and CONCORD, MA. − May 4, 2017 − Allegis Global Solutions (AGS), a workforce solutions and talent acquisition partner, and SmashFly Technologies, the leading Recruitment Marketing platform provider, have partnered to bring SmashFly’s award-winning recruitment marketing software to AGS’s global recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) customer base. With the addition of SmashFly’s Enterprise Recruitment Marketing Platform, AGS can now proactively market its RPO customer brands to active and passive job candidates through every recruiting channel (including career sites, social media, email, and digital) using modern marketing automation technology and practices. Several of AGS’s RPO clients, including Vyaire, a global leader in the delivery of anaesthesia and respiratory care solutions, have already added SmashFly’s platform to their recruiting strategies.
With its RPO solution, AGS acts as an extension of its clients’ HR departments, overseeing all or part of the talent acquisition spectrum, from sourcing and interviewing to on-boarding and training. RPO solutions optimise an organisation’s workforce, reduce operational costs and risks, drive productivity and increase ROI. In one recent RPO engagement, AGS filled 300 positions in 300 days (65 days fewer than the service level agreement) and ultimately saved the client $3.7 million in the first year of the contract.
Through Smashfly’s Enterprise Recruitment Marketing Platform, AGS will bring even more value to its clients. According to Aptitude Research Partners’ 2017 Recruitment Marketing Index, “By investing in a Recruitment Marketing Platform, organisations are seeing significant business impact: two times more likely to have a positive candidate experience, two times more likely to improve their Net Promoter scores, and three times more likely to have ‘quality of hire’ above competitive benchmarks.” One of SmashFly’s customers recently reported a 48% reduction in yearly cost per hire, converted and filled 24% more roles, 152% increase in tracked referrals, and 126% increase in applications with real-time metrics.
SmashFly’s Recruitment Marketing software helps recruiters create relationships with people earlier to better determine fit before they apply, and its analytics capabilities tracks all the sources of influence, from first attraction to hire, along the candidate journey from one dashboard. The platform’s features are customisable, and its configurable analytics dashboards and real-time reports track every candidate touchpoint and recruiting channel so AGS and its customers can see with simplicity and clarity where they should be targeting their efforts and optimising their strategy.
Randy Gulian, Executive Vice President and General Manager, RPO, Allegis Global Solutions:
“AGS and SmashFly share a vision to match organisations with outstanding people and deliver client-focused solutions that make a difference.
