Before Celanese adopted the iCIMS Talent Cloud, the global Fortune 500 chemical company used manual recruiting processes to expand its base of about 7,500 employees. Its decentralized recruiting model was used to hire between 750 and 950 candidates annually, which were split between plant-level operation roles and those geared toward professionals with unique degrees.

Unlike a lot of ATS vendors, iCIMS plays well with others.

Celanese's approach

Today, Celanese’s entire candidate lifecycle is handled within the iCIMS Talent Cloud, with workflows and onboarding tailored by region. Celanese customizes the hiring experience further by posting jobs in the local language, rather than relying on English for all countries. 

With iCIMS Applicant Tracking System, Celanese’s team gained access to a wealth of reporting and dashboard options, a must-have for complex global organizations. When it comes to traditional metrics, such as time to fill or hiring velocity, the team can break it down by hiring manager, recruiter, or region. 

When it comes to recruiting analytics, our source of truth is iCIMS.

Robust metrics and reporting give Celanese a 360-degree view into its diversity hiring efforts. Reporting in iCIMS allows the organization to use self-reported candidate data and follow candidates through the entire talent life cycle to see drop-off throughout different hiring stages. This data insight helped Celanese ensure that 93% of its hiring slates included diverse candidates, a 77% improvement over earlier efforts. 

This data visualization also helps the recruiting team illustrate to C-suite leaders the disconnect within the talent funnel. “That’s how we get the investment to do the work we do,” said the Global Talent Acquisition Leader.

At Celanese, it’s the little things that help job seekers feel connected to a potential employer – especially for candidates from historically excluded groups (HEGs). 

Understanding how stressful the interview process can be for HEG candidates, the Celanese recruiting team uses iCIMS Video Studio to send out a welcome video that explains what to expect during the process. Celanese also leverages iCIMS Video Studio to create employee testimonials.  

“We are addicted to iCIMS Video Studio,” said its Global Talent Acquisition Leader. The platform lets Celanese employees create quick, unscripted, and authentic content using their phones or laptops that doesn’t require big production costs.  

We love iCIMS Video Studio. It gives everybody honest insight into what it's like to be at Celanese.
