Sambatek, a midwestern engineering firm with an array of clients across many industries, has no shortage of exciting, big-ticket projects to work on. But to continue to provide the best service, they need the best talent, and they needed a system that would streamline and organize their process, while also fulfilling the unique municipal requirements and compliance regulations of the local government.
But with so many opportunities for civil engineers in their home base of the Twin Cities, competition for top talent is fierce, especially in an industry that’s still recovering from the lack of building and infrastructure improvement during the Great Recession. Sambatek was looking for a leg up.@ClearCompany teamed up with @SambatekInc to improve and streamline their #HiringProcess. Learn more in the case study:
Sambatek believes in developing great engineers into long term contributors and leaders. Their previous process brought in good candidates, but they relied on email — or even sometimes still paper — to share information with hiring managers. Organizing new hire paperwork was a compliance nightmare, and the tools they used were what dictated Sambatek’s workflow — instead of enabling them to create a process that works for them.
"In our old process, we would have to pull out applications manually and download those and send them to our hiring managers, or drop them off on their desk. In terms of tracking things, it was spreadsheets and a paper onboarding process. So, very archaic prior to coming to ClearCompany."
—Kelsey Long, HR Generalist, Sambatek
