Before implementing GoHire, YourParkingSpace relied heavily on word-of-mouth recruiting and the occasional, expensive use of a recruiter.
“The business has always grown in rather steep peaks which seemed to catch us off-guard,” says Brand Marketing Director, Tamar Sakadjian. “This meant that we needed to hire quickly, resulting in limited criteria we were looking to satisfy.”
This type of strategy worked for some areas of the business - mainly sales - but did not suit the recruitment of other departments.
“Experience of applicants didn’t necessarily match the role we were hiring for. This meant that a significant amount of time was needed to train new hires on not just the YourParkingSpace service, but the industry and role itself.”
With their mismatched hiring strategies, YourParkingSpace were finding candidates whose long-term career plans did not match those of the company and therefore turnover became quite high.
“When it came to enlist the help of a recruiter, we found cultural fit to be an area of concern with a high percentage of recommended candidates and therefore we struggled to justify the cost.”
