The Challenge

Facing a 30% Overspend on Advertising

Seeking to give their recruiters an edge in landing top talent, Yoh once let their individual offices select the sourcing channels they used. But with a lack of centralized control, Yoh estimated they were overspending for job board usage by 30%. Even worse, the company could only guess which channels were most effective. Yoh clearly needed to start tracking their campaigns and making better decisions about advertising.
In addition, Yoh wanted to automate processes such as posting a job, which required more than 18 manual steps, not to mention the loss of 75% of candidates because resumes were not automatically captured in the applicant tracking system.

Enter SAP

The New Era Begins with a New Career Site

By implementing SuccessFactors Recruiting Marketing as the back end of their new career site, Yoh would gain the ability to measure their recruiting campaigns, track applicants throughout the funnel, build a robust talent community, and automate the job posting and job application processes.

The ability of SuccessFactors to provide Yoh with transparency into their performance and tool automation for speed to market was the top reason they were chosen.

Enter SAP: The SAP Experience

Applicants Aren’t a Secret Anymore

During the implementation process, SuccessFactors provided not only the technology Yoh needed, but also expertise about which new recruiting channels would be best to pursue. With SuccessFactors, applicants now go directly into Yoh’s applicant tracking system, where they’re visible to any recruiter with any opportunity across the organization. In addition, Yoh rebuilt and optimized their career website and tied it into tracking of the company’s advertisements.

Better Business

From Talent Afterthought to Talent Destination

With a new career site up and running, Yoh has become much more diversified in how they target candidates. Instead of relying exclusively on traditional job boards or well-known niche sites, Yoh runs a thriving online talent community. In the process, Yoh has become a more recognizable brand—a talent destination, rather than a talent afterthought.

Journey Ahead

Staying on the Radar of Today’s Top Talent

Roughly 10,000 people continue to join Yoh’s talent community each month. The community has swelled to more than 500,000 people—and counting. Best of all, 18% of the members of the talent community don’t even apply for a job until at least 90 days after they register. These are people who probably would have forgotten all about Yoh if they hadn’t kept getting e-mails.

An awesome team – and partnership – with Yoh and SuccessFactors.
