Meet Chris Reijers, Director of Business Development at ColorCrew, a dynamic agency based in the Netherlands that collaborates with luxury brands. Specializing in payrolling and providing on-demand salesforce for brand activation endeavors. With a team of 20 professionals in-house, including two dedicated recruiters, and a field force of approximately 350, ColorCrew operates at the forefront of brand promotion and activation in the Netherlands and Belgium.
ColorCrew adopted Manatal's recruitment software to tackle challenges and enhance their recruitment process. Chris and his team recognized the need for a more efficient solution to manage their growing talent needs.
Before integrating Manatal into their recruitment process, ColorCrew grappled with several pressing challenges. Primarily, the agency was inundated with a high volume of candidates, rendering the recruitment process chaotic and unstructured. Their reliance on Excel spreadsheets exacerbated this issue, leading to inefficiencies, lost candidates, and extended time-to-hire. These challenges hampered their ability to swiftly identify and secure top-tier talent for their brand activation activities.
Enter Manatal, the recruitment software that ColorCrew adopted to revolutionize their talent acquisition process. The implementation process was seamless, and contrary to expectations, they received personalized support from the Manatal team, making the experience even more worthwhile. The transition began with a trial period, during which ColorCrew configured their account and initiated daily use. Satisfied with the results, they transitioned into a full subscription.
Manatal addressed ColorCrew's pain points adeptly. The software streamlined the entire process, slashing an impressive 40 hours per month previously spent on manual tasks such as copying candidate details and resumes. The software's intuitive interface and easy configurability stood out as key features that eased the transition. Additionally, Manatal's vacancy distribution via job boards provided a hassle-free solution to reach potential candidates, and the comprehensive reporting capabilities catered to ColorCrew's specific needs.
The impact of Manatal on ColorCrew's recruitment process has been profound. By adopting the software, the agency managed to trim down 40 hours per month of manual labor, resulting in a significant reduction in time-to-hire. The well-structured recruitment process facilitated by Manatal led to improved collaboration and communication within the team. All recruitment operations were centralized in a single platform, making collaboration more efficient than ever before.
In conclusion, ColorCrew's partnership with Manatal has yielded measurable improvements in their recruitment process. The streamlined workflow, reduction in manual labor, and enhanced collaboration have positioned ColorCrew to attract and secure top-tier talent for their brand activation endeavors.
