Sodexo: Bringing quality to life

Tags: Recruitment Transformation

Sodexo are a global company that provide onsite services, benefits and reward services, as well as personal and home services. Sodexo worked closely with Tribepad to help shape the first version of the Applicant Tracking System (ATS). This ongoing partnership continues to deliver innovation for both parties

  • 35,000 staff in the UK and Ireland
  • 133 nationalities employed
  • More than 2,000 locations

The challenge

Sodexo were struggling with their ATS which was slow and ‘clunky’. Job posting was manual, repetitive and laborious, which wasted time and money.

There were thousands of job seekers’ details in the database but no effective way of finding them. This resulted in paying job boards and agencies to attract talent that may have already been in the system. Because of a poor experience on mobile phones and no way for recruiters to tailor the application process, candidate drop-off was high.
