Quickly-Built Collaboration

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.

Best of Both Worlds

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.

With Us From Beginning to End

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.

The Expertise You Need

Here at AEG we recently took on a significant recruiting project in which we migrated from an out of date ATS to Greenhouse, which was a more up-to-date solution for us. We restructured our internal Talent Acquisition team and re-engineered processes with a focus on standardization, efficiency and scalability. The team at Beacon Lane was with us from the onset of the project, setting the vision and plan. They led us through a very organized process that covered the recruiting lifecycle and ultimately helped us map out our future state, which is what we automated.  Since going live, we have implemented several “best practice” recommendations from Beacon Lane that improved the end user experience and made the entire process much more efficient.  Implementing an ATS is a significant undertaking that requires a very specific expertise, especially if you want to fully realize the ROI. This is what we got as a result of working with Beacon Lane. I encourage HR Leaders to take the time to understand what is involved in this effort and to consider the cost of not doing it right – – and speak with Beacon Lane before doing anything.

TA Function Transformation

As part of our transformation of our TA function, we asked Elaine and her team to lead the implementation of our new ATS.  Spanning 17 countries on 3 continents, our Talent Acquisition team was in need of an agile tool and solution to hire efficiently. Thanks to their expertise, Beacon Lane managed to keep us on track all along that arduous journey, transforming our function and streamlining our processes. Going further than the implementation, Elaine shared her extensive knowledge of the best practices in TA and HR to help us engineer new processes and manage business changes. We are very thankful for her energy, focus and professionalism, and we highly recommend Beacon Lane to any organization who needs the assurance that their project will reach completion within the expected timelines.
