Creating Organization-Wide Visibility
With over 180 employees, one of the hardest parts for Wyatts HR team was maintaining an organized hiring process. Trevor saw hiring as one of the core performance metrics for their company, so the lack of any clear process or transparency into hiring was frustrating for Trevor, especially when they would fall short of the number of new employees they had anticipated. Too often, the only way to tell if hiring was behind was to see if their revenue growth had come to a standstill. As Trevor put it, "Our growth is constrained by the number of good people we have".
Instead of relying on individual hiring managers working on their own to find, interview, and hire new employees, Team Engine created one single, universal location for every hiring manager to collaborate. Through the software, Trevor and his staff could view every scheduled interview, conversation, and application for any candidate they had. "We have 3-4 people looking at the software every day, they can look and see who has interviews" said Trevor, "If someone's out, we can step up and handle their workload since we know what they were doing".
The high level of transparency provided by Team Engine not only improved the hiring managers' productivity levels and allowed for unprecedented collaboration, it also helped Trevor be a more effective boss. Daily performance reports and weekly executive summaries provided by Team Engine gave Trevor a way to hold his staff accountable when it came to hiring, letting him know who to help and where he should focus his time as a leader. For Trevor, having tangible proof that his staff was growing into their roles and ready to move up in the company was a huge reward.
