Independence, OH – May 2012 – Alliance Solutions Group, a full-service recruitment agency with offices in Cuyahoga, Summit, Portage, Franklin, Lorain and Wyandot counties under the Alliance Staffing Solutions name, has installed a new software system designed to improve its ability to find just the right staffing candidate match in less time than competitive companies.
The new tool, which took more than a year to configure and integrate into the staffing recruitment company’s technology infrastructure, combines advanced analytics and data mining capabilities to accelerate the hiring process, and to improve its ability to provide consistent, quality hires.
“We’ve always been early adopters of new technology tools that control hiring quality,” explained company President Aaron Grossman. “Our integration of 1Staff, the new tool we’re installing, will put far more analytical information at our fingertips that goes far beyond just telling us who’s available to fill a position, but can provide invaluable insight into the characteristics and skills needed to be successful in that specific position, even in that specific company.”
Grossman said that, as the staffing market leader in Northeast Ohio with thousands of candidates and placements, the tool will allow his company to gather data on hiring patterns and trends in the various industries served by the company, including finance, office, technical/engineering, healthcare and manufacturing/warehouse.
“We’ll be able to report to our clients not just on hiring activity by industry or job type, but also on job skills and performance characteristics associated with successful job placements,” he said. “Our plan is to use the new analytical power of the tool to identify best practices in both skills and cultural characteristics to improve hiring outcomes and retention rates. Eventually, we’ll be able to say, ‘here are the five characteristics that account for success – at your company – for the job you’re trying to fill.'”
Beyond access to improved analytics, the new platform significantly increases Alliance’s ability to recruit and find skilled job candidates in a variety of ways:
- Staffing specialists will be able to sort and search through profile databases of thousands of potential candidates more easily and quickly.
- Information across a variety of databases will all be integrated automatically into a single screen for each applicant, ranging from background checks to certifications and even to calendar and schedules.
- The system allows candidates more control of their own job search process, using a new self-serve portal. Candidates can sign up for instant alerts of job opportunities, search job postings, apply online, and update their online profiles and resumes.
- The new system provides real-time data (e.g., time-to-fill ratios and retention rates), business intelligence reporting, and audit information to its customers.
1Staff Software is one of several communication technologies that Alliance is using to improve the efficiency of its operations as it continues its rapid growth in a variety of industries and communities. Alliance’s reliance on technology and “best practice” recruitment methods has helped the company’s annual revenues grow to more than $30 million in 10 years. The company’s growth rate continues to accelerate, building on 2011’s 32 percent revenue boost with a 40+ percent first quarter increase in revenues.
