Hire by Google: Now optimized for enterprises with thousands of employees
From day one, our goal with Hire has been to provide an easy to use recruiting solution that enables collaboration, engagement and productivity for businesses of all sizes. That’s why we invested heavily in developing the only ML-powered recruiting solution that integrates with G Suite. As we spoke with our growing enterprise customers, they found that the benefits of Hire’s collaboration, engagement and productivity features are increasingly critical as they scale and grow geographically. So today, we’re expanding Hire’s capabilities to better serve enterprises, making the hiring process easier and more streamlined for businesses with thousands of employees.
Expanded capabilities for enterprises
For enterprises, tracking down the right approvers for new job requisitions and offers can take time away from critical tasks like finding and interviewing great talent. To optimize Hire for these businesses, we enhanced the requisition and offer approval flows to automatically suggest approvers for new job requisitions or offers. This makes it easy for large organizations to establish consistent global approval processes, while empowering recruiters to move faster.
We also introduced a referral portal to encourage every employee to source top talent, which can mean thousands of referrals for a large organization, and released a set of interactive reports to empower more informed decision making, so enterprises can make the most of all their data and optimize complex hiring processes.
Lastly, we expanded our connection to the larger HR technology ecosystem through APIs and pre-built integrations with Namely, Sapling, AppogeeHR, and Zenefits, so customers can easily manage the entire employee lifecycle and improve the experience for new hires.
“Our deep integration with Hire by Google helps joint clients streamline the earliest interactions between an employee and their company,” says Graham Younger, President and Chief Revenue Officer at Namely. “By using Google’s robust architecture to instantly create a new employee record in Namely each time an applicant is hired, we’re speeding the onboarding process for HR and creating a better employee experience from the initial interview to the first day on the job.”
Increasing collaboration and engagement in the recruiting process
For global teams, communication is key to quickly align on hiring decisions. Trimble, a technology company with over 11,000 employees across 30 countries, made the switch to Hire in mid-2018 and has seen tremendous value from Hire’s collaboration features.
“Hiring managers have the ability to easily go in and leave feedback, @mention recruiters, and change their interview teams,” explains Joe Shilkrot, Talent Acquisition Manager, North America of Trimble. “Hire makes it much easier for hiring managers to get involved in their positions, and it’s enabling us to work better together.”
Framestore, a visual effects and computer animation studio with nearly 3,000 employees across 3 continents, is leveraging Hire’s ability to work seamlessly with G Suite to streamline its hiring process. By working fluidly with the tools employees already live in, like Gmail, Calendar, and Sheets, Hire has become part of their existing process, instead of an extra step.
“Hire just fits into my workflow. It’s not like I think ‘oh, I’m in Hire,’ it’s just a seamless part of the tools I am already using,” says Amy Smith, Head of Talent at Framestore. Hire’s ability to intuitively fit into existing workflows has also led to a 50% uplift in hiring manager engagement for Framestore globally. “Hiring managers absolutely love it,” notes Amy. “For anyone familiar with a Google product, Hire is so familiar, so intuitive, and so easy to use. In fact, we actually didn’t do any training with hiring managers. They just intuitively figured it out and were off running instantly.”
Applying machine learning to simplify the hiring process
Features like Candidate Discovery in Hire apply machine learning to help businesses identify previously considered candidates in their existing databases that may be great for a new role. This translates into massive time savings for companies like Trimble, who has seen an increase in recruiter productivity since switching to Hire.
“With the ability to parse resumes, auto-suggest candidates, schedule interviews with ease and more, Hire enables our Talent Acquisition team to increase the number of requisitions they’re working on because they can move more quickly through the system,” explains Joe.
Titmouse, Inc. uses Hire to streamline the management of new applications on its careers page and search its existing database of candidates.
“We have a ‘General Submission’ section on the website where artists can submit their information if they don’t find a posted job that matches their skillset,” explains Sharon O’Donnell, HR Director at Titmouse, Inc. “That section now has more than 5,000 submissions, and growing rapidly, so we need a way to sift through it quickly. We have three locations, in LA, New York, and Vancouver, and candidate discovery has been an efficient tool we use to find artists by area of expertise and location.”
