Tavant Technologies is an undisputed leader in the IT solutions and services space. With over 1500 employees, they partner industry-leading companies such as Ingersoll Rand, New York Times and Electronic Arts.
As an organization with a hyper-growth culture, Tavant seeks people who not only bring strong domain expertise, but are also passionate about owning and impacting revenue growth. Its leadership needed a strong understanding of the technology talent landscape, with the ability to quickly identify and engage right-fit talent. And given the urgency, and the lean structure of its hiring teams, its talent acquisition team needed a solution that could dramatically reduce hiring time while upping its conversion ratios.
In order to close critical roles in reduced time, the talent leadership at Tavant recognized early on that they needed a more targeted and proactive approach to hiring. Instead of waiting for the right applicants to walk in, they wanted to leverage recruiting data and intelligence to engage right-fit candidates — wherever they were. Which is why, as a data-driven outbound recruiting solution, Belong fit seamlessly into their hiring strategy.
From get-go, Belong’s Discovery features helped Tavant’s recruiting team to focus on quality instead of volumes at the top of their funnel. While JD Scanner automatically converted Job Descriptions into a pool of relevant, skilled candidates, Belong Picks analyzed Tavant’s past and current employee data to recommend candidates most similar to their high-performers.
Belong’s Adaptive Search continuously analyzed each recruiter’s shortlisting habits to detect similarities among the candidates selected, including work history, universities and skills. It capitalized on Tavant’s hiring data to learn and modify search so that recruiters were shortlisting more relevant candidates in lesser time.
Even as Tavant’s recruiters discovered top talent on the Belong platform, they needed an eective way to increase engagement and interest rates from the candidates. Which is where Belong’s Personalized Engagement solution helped. Each reach-out was personalized for the candidate, based on insights from their social data, and delivered at times candidates were most likely to be engaging. The Automated Follow-up feature ensured recruiters spared no effort in maximizing response rates.
All this ensured Tavant was able to build a pipeline of 2500 nurtured leads for more than 6 different job families across technology functions. The team’s response rates shot up to 55%, which is more than 3X the industry average.
Tavant’s strong focus on their talent acquisition efforts has led to their team constantly exploring new approaches and technologies in hiring. Thanks to their efforts, the team has so far succeeded in closing complex roles in Technical Leads, Software Engineering roles, Technology Architect functions on Belong — leading to a 30X ROI.
