Kate Spade

Kate Spade designs and markets a global portfolio of retail-based premium brands. The company also has a refined group of department store-based brands with strong consumer franchises.

The Challenge

Kate Spade recruiters needed a flexible hiring management system that would allow the organization to maintain unique product-line branding while managing applicants from a central location.

The Solution

The flexibility of the iCIMS Talent Platform made the corporation’s applicant tracking system decision easy. Recruiters could manage distinct Kate Spade brands including Lucky and Juicy Couture through one scalable solution. "iCIMS has helped us to manage our recruiting for each product line that we own, while channeling all of the data into a central location,” said Kate Spade Director of Recruiting Operations & Special Projects.

The Results

Since signing with iCIMS, Kate Spade has been able to standardize its recruiting operations across different workflows within one system. Equally important, the organization has been able to maintain unique brand identities through distinct Career Portals and recruiting collateral. Candidates encounter standardized communications during each step of the hiring process, from initial application through offer letter and onboarding. The end result has saved Kate Spade recruiters a significant time and has enhanced the corporate employment brand when supporting applicants across different divisions of the company.
