Recruiting and Coaching Simplified for
Equipment Manufacturer

Major equipment manufacturer Bison Gear & Engineering Corporation needed automated HR processes for compliance, and better coaching to fill a skills gap. Arcoro provided both. Here’s their story.

Bison Gear & Engineering Corporation is a leading power transmission equipment and federal contracting company based out of St. Charles, Illinois that brings its innovative skills and technology and skills to bear on various markets and industries across seven continents.

As a federal contractor with a diverse workforce, Bison faced several HR challenges. They needed their recruiting processes and documentation to reach qualified, diverse candidates and stay within OFCCP regulations. They also felt they were relying too heavily on external resources to recruit their talent.

After a preceding HR manager selected an out-of-the-box talent management system that didn’t have the flexibility to configure to their needs, Bison’s HR Director, Debora Galchick, decided it was time to make the move toward a streamlined, versatile and integrated HR management solution.

Bringing a diverse workforce

With a diverse workforce, a frequent, coaching-focused approach to performance reviews is crucial to avoiding the generational skill gap and the safety concerns that come with it. Bison needed a system that offered unlimited forms and was agile, allowing them to switch or alter documents anytime without additional charges. In addition to flexibility, Bison was seeking a way to advance their talent management strategy and a system that would display a clear career path forward for employees.
