The Challenge

When we measure a company’s success, the focus is often centered on revenue, rather than shining a light on the biggest driver of those numbers - employee talent. Gannett Fleming realized getting recruitment right from the start would fuel their business success.

Tasked with a new business objective of maximizing efficiency, they needed to improve their hiring operations without losing out on top talent.

Feeling overwhelmed with the large amount of applications flowing in, they spent up to $6,000 on third-party recruiting agencies to fill open positions on top of trying to work within their application tracking system (ATS), Ceridian.

According to Masai Lawson, Gannett Fleming’s manager of talent acquisition, they decided to search for a best-in-class talent acquisition platform that would put recruiting back in the hands of their recruiters and maximize efficiency.

During their search for a talent platform, Gannett Fleming considered Oracle Taleo to handle their recruiting needs, but felt their recruitment was not prioritized amongst their expansive list of business solutions.

“We weren’t pleased with the way they [Oracle, Taleo] deprioritized recruitment,” said Gayle Byers, corporate recruiter. “iCIMS’ [strategy] starts with recruitment.”

The integration between iCIMS and Taleo ensures data governance and maximizes recruitment efficiencies.

How iCIMS Helped

Gannett Fleming chose iCIMS to handle their recruiting function and trusted Taleo Fusion to handle their post-hire needs.

iCIMS serves as the unified hub that ties together the complex world of talent acquisition and allows new hire data to be sent to Taleo Fusion with a seamless integration, ensuring optimum data governance and reducing manual data entry.

“iCIMS strategy starts with recruitment.”
