Client’s Challenges

Frequently changing positions and locations prove difficult in consistently filling the candidate pipeline

Sodexo is responsible for hiring at 9,000+ client level locations across the country and needed help attracting quality candidates for the wide variety of positions they fill, all requiring different skill sets. Frequency of changing positions and hiring areas made consistency in the candidate pipeline a significant challenge.

Kristen Jacobs, Employment Branding Sourcing Manager at Sodexo, needed a finely-targeted, adaptable and cost-effective solution to help attract quality candidates.

Appcast’s Solution

Smart programmatic job advertising and optimization through Appcast’s publisher network

Appcast participated in Sodexo’s pilot, driving applicants from 6,000+ consumer and niche job sites to the organization’s open jobs. Appcast’s programmatic job ad distribution made it easy for Jacobs to set budgets by job category and cap the number of applies needed based on the cost-per-application at the individual job level, across any of her client locations. Through active communication with her Appcast account manager, Jacobs could see real-time, automated performance details of every open job ad she sponsored.

Appcast’s pay-per-applicant model supported the areas that needed to be impacted:

High quality candidate applies –Strategically focus reach within Appcast’s publisher network of 6,000+ job and consumer sites, reaching over 60 million candidates.

Real-time mobile apply data –Appcast’s all-inclusive dashboard provides comparison data by desktop and mobile apply rates at the individual job level.

Structured vendor communication –Frequent two-way communication is crucial in defining performance benchmarks on the quality of applicants needed to keep the pipeline filled.
