Bynder is all about reducing the time-to-market of businesses who provide high quality marketing materials to clients. Its digital asset management solution helps thousands of organizations organize and deliver large files quickly and easily.
But for talent acquisition and employee branding specialist, Tomas Haviar, recruiting in the highly competitive tech space needed to be more rapid and simple. He recognized his need for a tool that reduced the time-to-hire for Bynder’s internal talent management and hiring.
Tomas’ success in his role hinges on efficiently communicating and scheduling with candidates. With engineers and developers in such high demand, delays in the interview or job offer process quickly lead to losing potential talent. Candidates take jobs where they enjoy the best interview experience and they don’t stay on the market for long with such high competition in the tech sector.
As Bynder’s sole recruiter, Tomas spends much of his day reaching out to candidates to set up phone interviews. Previously, he would email times that he was available to several candidates at once, wait to get a response and often have more than one candidate claim the same time slot.
At best, this led to more emails and a lag in getting the interview on the calendar. At worst, it meant losing a high potential candidate to another company. Tomas adopted Calendly, hoping to streamline communication and expedite scheduling.
Tomas is now scheduling five or more candidates a day without any back and forth or scheduling conflicts. With one quick email containing a Calendly link, applicants are prompted to schedule an interview at their convenience. Tomas is never double-booked and candidates are impressed with the innovation, which bodes well for the company’s reputation in the tech sector.
Custom settings allow Tomas to spread out his interviews throughout the week, add padding so that calls don’t run over and always keep his calendar classified. With a calendar that’s linked to Calendly, but set to private, candidates never know how many interviews Tomas is scheduling for a role or who he is meeting with.
Calendly provided a solution robust enough for a team of one and now leads to a faster hire. Expediency and a pleasant experience are two huge goals that Bynder delivers on in the hiring process, allowing Bynder to attract the best talent with its seamless and straightforward process.
“It’s an easy way to schedule a meeting with anyone. It integrates with your calendar and removes the excess communication about finding a time, which increases transparency while providing privacy of your personal agenda.”
