Arcoro Hiring Package Streamlines Recruiting Process for East Coast Contractor
To reduce the need for hiring, they needed to put processes in place to improve retention and build a talent pool.
Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal is one of the top 10 roofing contractors in the country. Based in Wheeling, W.V., the nearly 40-year-old company has five locations spread out across five states in the eastern US and with 500 to 1,000 employees during the peak season. The roofing contractor specializes in complex commercial exterior envelope applications for various markets including the automotive, chemical, government, entertainment, education and healthcare industries.
For the last few years, Kalkreuth has been growing fast. But with only one full-time recruiter for five locations, the company needed solutions that would allow them to quickly fill open positions with qualified applicants while reducing the increased turnover experienced throughout the construction industry.
With 10 to 15 jobs typically open at all times, they needed a way to not only recruit enough talent but quickly get workers on the job. Posting jobs, sorting and storing applications and communicating with applicants manually took more time than the team had to get all their openings filled. In addition, it was difficult to get input from supervisors who were in the field. Getting resumes to them for review was another logistical stumbling block that slowed the process.
To reduce the need for hiring, they needed to put processes in place to improve retention and build a talent pool. But finding the resources to implement these processes was difficult while the team was consumed with hiring.
