Agriscience company splits from conglomerate and works with Talent Function to grow and develop an entirely new hiring process.
Derived from heart and nature comes a company that is one of the largest standalone agriculture companies today. Technology and chemistry combined to help this company produce award-winning crop protection and seeding that flourishes crops at a global level. How do they keep moving forward? By having a deep knowledge of agriscience along with diverse resources that keep it at the top of the line. Originally starting as part of a conglomerate, the need to grow into a standalone entity became apparent.
With this transition came a major obstacle. The company would need to establish an entirely new hiring process. They were looking for help from an organization knowledgeable in the talent acquisition space and chose Talent Function to help sort through the complexity and guide them through the change. Talent Function used their problem-solving abilities to meet their needs by providing program leadership, project management, workstream guidance and drove the efforts for implementing a new career site.
Talent Function decided it would be best to categorize the project into three phases. This was to ensure that the desired deliverables would be achieved in a timely manner. Phase one included Talent Function helping in the creation of refreshed employee branding, an English career site that was mobile and responsive, and modernizing their job application process. Talent Function helped the client integrate their JOB API and job distribution process. To ensure the accuracy of the work being done, Talent Function also conducted extensive user acceptance testing from end-to-end. Phase two involved the creation of two additional pages to the career site, as well as the translation of the career site into six languages in addition to English. Global job boards were added, among other enhancements, to help with the growth of the global talent pool. Talent Function concluded with another round of user acceptance testing from end-to-end. Phase three consisted of the creation of six additional career sites and CRM integration.
The end result of this project was a first-class, mobile, and responsive candidate experience. The client also received a bi-directional integration with the utilization of their ATS and CRM. In support of their future campaigns and expansion of their career site, Talent Function collaboratively established extensive brand guidelines, templates, and imagery for them to use. The company now has the ability to update, modify, and add content to their career sites with the content management provided by their CRM. The CRM also affords the company the ability to easily track where the candidates stand in the hiring process, as well as which job openings are driving traffic. Thanks to Talent Function and other vendors that were acquired, this company will continue to make a difference in the agricultural world.
