20 July 2022 — AMS (formerly Alexander Mann Solutions), a global provider of talent outsourcing and advisory services, launched its High-Volume Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) solution to deliver large-scale hiring to clients nationwide. Research shows that 65% of companies have high-volume recruitment needs and this percentage is only expected to increase due to ongoing employee turnover. Other contributing factors include the need for many industries to continue ramping up following the pandemic, a lack of access to effective digital workforce tools, and a shortage of experienced recruiters. AMS’s combination of intelligent automation technology, with its high touch delivery teams and advisory services, delivers a unique solution to the market.
Through the new solution, AMS clients have seen tangible improvements in the recruitment experience, especially in expediting the pace of bringing on new employees. One blue chip retailer reduced time-to-hire from 66 to 26 days and eliminated 6,000 back office hours. Another reported that offers were being accepted in less than two days and text-to-apply technology increased response rates by 21% with 1,000 accepted offers in just four weeks.
Chip Holmes, Managing Director/EVP - Client Services, AMS, said:
“Many industries, including retail, airlines, and hospitality, continue to struggle to find hourly employees. At AMS, we know the key to attracting talent is providing a superior, brand-led candidate experience. For job seekers, that includes both state-of-the art technology and meaningful human interactions with qualified recruiting experts. We also know that today’s companies are faced with a rapidly changing economy and uncertain workforce needs. As part of the AMS High-Volume RPO solution, our advisory experts will help clients analyze their current hourly hiring needs and plan a successful path forward.”
AMS’s High-Volume RPO delivers a three-pronged approach:
- Proprietary technology through Hourly by AMS, a mobile-first conversational recruiting solution that automates the application process for 24/7 recruitment, moving candidates from application to scheduling an interview in under three minutes
- A dedicated team of trained recruiting resources providing the human touch needed to reach today’s workers
- Engagement with AMS advisory experts who can help develop an effective high-volume hiring strategy for healthy, long-term workforce planning
As a mobile-first solution, AMS’s High-Volume RPO makes applying for a position easy and accessible for candidates, even when they are “on the go,” and allows recruiters to see the status of open positions and respond to candidates in real time.
“In an age of diminished talent acquisition resources, there’s no doubt that technology is paramount in executing a successful hiring strategy, but it cannot be the only part of the equation. AMS believes high-volume recruitment should go beyond tactical. By including our existing recruiting and advisory experts, we’ve created a holistic talent strategy that drives better ROI and outcomes for clients and candidates.”
