A Fortune 100 manufacturing organization and Randstad Sourceright RPO client has a global workforce of almost 150,000 people. With this many staff, there is significant turnover, and open positions often need to be filled as quickly as possible. On top of this, US unemployment is at its lowest since 1969, a fierce talent war rages, and there are confusing amounts of passive candidates. This makes present-day hiring a real challenge.

When Randstad Sourceright recruited Wendy, they had 63 full-time job openings to fill, and they were struggling. They needed to find relevant, interested, qualified candidates — fast.

Wendy, our AI-infused chatbot, was brought in to help. Wendy integrates into the existing workflow of a recruiting team, assisting in cost-effectively sourcing and screening candidates, at scale. She does the repetitive, top-of-the-funnel tasks so recruiters can focus on making the smart hiring decisions.

And what did Wendy achieve? From her substantial database, she conducted a personalized outreach campaign, targeting both passive and active job seekers. In just two weeks, she conducted hundreds of in-depth and personalized chats, and identified 325 qualified and interested candidates. These candidates were submitted to Randstad RPO team with all the information they needed to make the next series of decisions.

What would it have taken to source a comparable number of qualified candidates over a two-week period using traditional methods — ie. without Wendy? The company estimated that such a feat of recruiting would have required 16 full-time recruiters at an estimated cost of $54,000.

Wendy works alongside humans, tirelessly performing the repetitive, manual aspects of recruiting in a fraction of the time. This leaves human recruiters to get on with what they’re best at: strategic thinking, based on the best possible data, to find the most interested and qualified candidate.
