I can’t say enough about Elaine and Beacon Lane. What impressed me most about Elaine was her ability to quickly understand our business needs, challenge the old way of thinking and build collaboration within the stakeholders to improve process. In doing so, she and her team guided us down the journey of onboarding the best ATS for our business. Without Elaine’s guidance, planning, and holding to deliverables, I’m convinced we would have spent considerably more time vetting products and in the end I’m not at all certain we would have chosen the best product for us. One of the greatest talent acquisition minds I’ve had the pleasure of working with, hands down.

Engaging with Beacon Lane and a Big 4 consultancy gave us the best of both worlds when implementing our global ATS. We needed a partner who knew this space better than anyone else - and that's exactly what we got with Beacon Lane. Beacon Lane was hired to help oversee the design of our global ATS. Elaine stood in as our eyes and voice - ensuring that the system being designed for UST Global would support an optimized state of recruiting. She challenged the status quo while taking into consideration the geographical and business variances that the system needed to support. With Beacon Lane's input and direction, I am convinced we saved a considerable amount of time and money that otherwise would have been spent on rework post implementation.

Global Head of Talent Acquisition / UST Global
Randstad North America took on a significant recruiting optimization project in which we migrated to a new applicant tracking system, centralized our internal Talent Acquisition team, and re-engineered processes for efficiency and impact. This work was over a year in duration and Elaine and her team were with us from beginning to end. With their daily input, support, and guidance, we were able to meet the targets for this effort. Elaine was an extension of our leadership team during this time, engaging with senior leaders, designing solutions, and encouraging our team to think strategically and boldly. She is versatile in her depth of knowledge in the TA space and I highly recommend any company even considering an implementation - technology or process - to engage with Beacon Lane first.
