Siloed recruiting processes and technology
Amplifon is the global leader in the hearing care retail market with twelve different applicant tracking systems in multiple languages. Their talent teams recognized they needed a more unified recruiting system.
The company tapped Jobvite ATS to unite and streamline its global recruiting operations, as well as add language translation options and mobile applications to improve candidate experiences.
One global tool and one premium candidate experience
With the help of Jobvite, Amplifon was able to dramatically reduce time-to-hire by 25% and is able to provide the same experience to worldwide candidates.

However, as the company mastered customized products and outstanding services for its customers, it strives to prescribe the same treatment also to the its candidates worldwide.
Too many ATS's
Spanning more than 29 countries and 14 languages, Amplifon’s recruiting operation is a truly global team. Timezone and language barriers were just some of the unique challenges Amplifon’s team faced when it came to coordination and consistency across the hiring process.
But perhaps the biggest inhibitor was their recruiting technology stack, which made difficult to move candidates through the hiring funnel quickly. ”We moved from 12 different ATS’s to one, this simplified the connection with our candidates and the data collection for our recruiters” says Letizia Chlapoutakis, Digital Workplace Manager at Amplifon.
Amplifon needed a more unified solution to eliminate those recruiting silos and deliver the best overall hiring experience consistently for candidates, regardless of their region.
Amplifon learns about Jobvite
Amplifon chose Jobvite to handle its global recruiting needs as the solution proposed seems designed to properly match actual and future needs. According to Letizia Chlapoutakis, the company selected Jobvite because of its reputation for enabling the best possible experience for all candidates.
“Jobvite has supported us to create a truly global recruiting platform,” said Chlapoutakis. “It assures a consistent user experience and the same process for our candidates all over the world, to make them feel our international culture and thoughtful leadership.”
Core to this initiative was Jobvite’s capability to seamlessly translate and offer support for more languages. The company has leveraged Jobvite ATS in more than 14 different languages, and it provides one central repository for talent acquisition teams to track and manage Amplifon’s global hiring effort.
In addition, Amplifon has also taken advantage of the fact that Jobvite offers mobile optimization for applications and is GDPR compliant. This includes making it easier for consent forms and abiding by deletion policies mandated by the regulation.
The candidate experience, amplified
In just a few months with Jobvite, Amplifon has dramatically reduced its time to hire by 25%. The fact that candidates no longer need to register to apply for a job, coupled with a user-friendly mobile experience and automatic language translation has made all the difference.
Thanks to Jobvite, more and more job seekers are hearing about Amplifon and the incredible unparalleled career opportunities the company can offer.
