Milestone Technologies, Inc. (MILESTONE) has selected leading provider of social talent management solutions, SilkRoad technology, inc., to streamline its talent management processes. MILESTONE will be implementing SilkRoad’s OpenHire for recruiting management and applicant tracking as well as RedCarpet for onboarding management. Upon implementing SilkRoad’s OpenHire and RedCarpet, MILESTONE expects to realize a more than five percent return on investment in just the first year.
MILESTONE is an IT consulting business with a workforce operating in 30 countries around the globe. With many employees working remotely, the Company recognized that its previous talent management system was unable to scale to meet the needs of the growing business. To address this, MILESTONE selected SilkRoad’s intuitive, cloud-based offerings, which can be easily accessed by employees across the globe, anywhere, at any time.
“It was important to us to find not just a vendor with a good suite of software providing a superior and innovative experience, but also a business partner that supported our overall virtualization strategy. We found that partner in SilkRoad,” said Kasey Konkright, director, recruiting for MILESTONE. “We were looking for a solution that was easy for our managers to use, and at the same time allowed my team the ability to access the tools they need to do their jobs – anywhere, anytime, from any device. SilkRoad offered the best fit for what we wanted. Going forward, we can now attract and onboard the talent we need to keep up with growing demand for our services.”
Created to offer the finest employee experience, SilkRoad’s solutions reduce administrative burdens as well as time and money spent during talent management processes to drive employee engagement and business performance and agility. OpenHire offers easy-to-use applicant tracking software to help find qualified, quality candidates and deliver a positive candidate experience, while RedCarpet provides an efficient HR onboarding program, a task known to be especially challenging for virtual and global workforces.
“We understand the importance of centralizing talent management for companies such as MILESTONE,” said Flip Filipowski, chairman and CEO of SilkRoad. “Most of the Company’s personnel work remotely and our cloud-based solutions will supply MILESTONE’s global employee base with tools and resources that will empower and engage employees while driving high performance in the workplace.”
