National Retailer Achieves Success with Text Campaign

Challenge

To taking hiring to the next level to support high-volume and seasonal hiring needs.

Solution

Intelligent Messaging

One of the U.S.’s largest retailers partnered with Talemetry by Jobvite to utilize our comprehensive recruitment marketing platform, expert services, and real-time communication channels like text messaging to communicate with candidates throughout the recruiting process.

Results

Store hiring for 890 locations reached 28,851 hires; 8,000 candidates have cleared a background check and are starting soon; plus, 2,800 are in the background check process. Ultimately, they reached 110% of their goals.

 

It's a tough time to be in retail. And it's even tougher trying to find hourly talent that can connect with customers to drive sales and beat the slump that most retailers find themselves in.

As one of the largest U.S.-based apparel and home retail stores, this national retailer was able to generate 94,000 hires in the CRM, receive 31,000 applications from email campaigns, and make 18,000 job offers with only a 1% fail rate on background checks in one day.

Read the success story to find out how a national retailer solved its volume and seasonal hiring challenges without increasing spend.

We had not hired that many people in one day in our history. We attribute this to the strategic use of email campaigns utilizing our existing talent base. This will be an annual event going forward.
