Our partner—a growing automotive dealership with five locations—had plans to expand nationwide; eleven stores within a year. Their largest obstacles were finding sales consultants with extensive sales and customer service backgrounds in addition to being a fit for their brand's culture, while also simultaneously hiring whole-house staff in a timely manner for the opening of the new stores.
We partnered with the organization's HR leaders to create an enterprise-wide strategic recruitment plan to meet their immediate and long-term needs. With our expertise in culture-based recruitment and recruiting for sales-specific roles, we developed specific candidate personas to help attract more quality candidates that would be a match for their culture. Our team supported recruitment for eleven new store openings in addition to filling roles for their existing locations.
In less than one year, we made 200+ hires for eleven store locations scattered throughout Denver, Co, San Antonio, TX, and Jacksonville, FL. One of the top positions filled included sales consultants in addition to automobile technicians. We were able to present candidates that fit their culture and brand in a timeframe that allowed for adequate training prior to new store openings.
