Indeed Hire

By augmenting the latest data-driven technologies with a human touch, Indeed Hire offers a tailored service for finding the best candidates—taking the pain out of hiring and allowing businesses like Austin Capital Bank to focus on servicing their clients.

Hiring new staff is hard. Attracting candidates, screening them, organizing and holding interviews—it’s all very time-consuming and resource-draining. Drawn-out recruiting processes can also cause an employer to lose the best candidates, who often have other offers on the table.

Erik Beguin, President and CEO of Austin Capital Bank, has experienced this problem first-hand. Founded in 2006, Austin Capital Bank is one Central Texas’ preeminent community banks and a national leader in financial services innovation. In June 2017, the bank was experiencing rapid growth and its hiring needs grew as a result.

But as the company grew, Erik and his team found that they no longer had the bandwidth to manage the recruiting process themselves. They found themselves overwhelmed with a large volume of resumes and unable to screen the hundreds of applicants. This is when they turned to Indeed Hire, and were assigned a hiring specialist who quickly came to understand the bank’s needs and deftly identified the right candidates for them.

“Using Indeed Hire has been a huge time saver for us and has actually made our recruiting and hiring process enjoyable” said Erik. “It’s efficient, reasonably priced and it makes hiring easy, allowing us to focus again on critical operations functions. We plan to keep using Indeed Hire.”

Takashi Nishimura, General Manager at Indeed, explains that Indeed Hire is the next step in the evolution of a business with a singular focus⁠—to help people get jobs. “We built Indeed Hire to provide an end-to-end recruitment solution at a fraction of the industry-average cost, helping employers lower their costs and helping more job seekers find the right job for them.”

“The whole process was nicely packaged—instead of a pile of resumes, we received four or five excellent candidates.”

Leveraging Indeed’s technology and data, the solution has dramatically simplified the entire process through automation, while backing it up with highly skilled specialists. Takashi adds, “Our simple success-based pricing model aligns our interests directly with those of our enterprise clients including SMEs, and our hiring professionals are seen as an extension of their talent attraction teams. This innovative approach places us at the forefront of the evolving HR market, enabling us to fulfill our focus of improving the experience for job seekers while helping employers find great hires.
