Henkel Launches New Super-Fast Recruitment Platform with Cornerstone
Global manufacturer, Henkel, has witnessed a 40% uptake in new applicants with its fast-tracked recruitment process
London – 7th July 2020 – Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSOD), a global leader in people development solutions, today announced that Henkel has used Cornerstone Recruiting to launch a new recruitment platform to streamline its application process and improve the candidate experience.
Henkel, a global manufacturer of consumer goods with more than 52,000 employees, launched the new recruitment platform less than one month ago and has already seen a 40% increase in new applicants.
Understanding the need for agile and smooth recruitment processes to ensure the optimal experience for potential new employees, Henkel needed to overhaul its previous recruitment process and implement a new platform. Already using Cornerstone for learning, upskilling and performance management, Henkel also knew that using Cornerstone Recruiting would provide a seamless experience for its candidates and employees.
Now, with this new recruitment platform, Henkel has introduced a fast-track recruitment process. Candidates are not required to set up an account, and instead can synchronise data with their LinkedIn profile to import important information and can apply through any device, all in just 60 seconds.
“At Henkel, we’re always pushing to further enhance the digital and user experience and of course, we knew that recruitment could be no exception,” comments Valeria Gladsztein, head of global talent acquisition & learning at Henkel. “Nowadays we all expect digital experiences to be quick and simple, able to be done anywhere, anytime on any device and that is what we’re offering job seekers with this new recruitment platform and super lean application process. What used to take up to 30 minutes can now easily be completed in one.”
“In the wake of the coronavirus crisis, digital expectations are even higher and businesses that want to be attracting great candidates cannot afford to overlook this. Digital transformation has long past being a nice-to-have and Henkel has clearly demonstrated the importance of optimising all parts of the business for a digital world, especially when it comes to your candidates and employees. The results speak for themselves, and we’re looking forward to continuing to support Henkel along its journey towards becoming a truly ‘unbound’ and agile business, ready to adapt and embracing new norms,” said Vincent Belliveau, Chief Executive EMEA, Cornerstone OnDemand.
