Taleo Fusion

Founded in 1915, Gannett Fleming is a global infrastructure firm that provides planning, design, technology, and construction management services for a diverse range of markets and disciplines. They’ve helped shape infrastructure and improve communities in more than 65 countries and specialise in transportation, environmental, water, power, and facility-related projects.

Consistently ranked among the nation’s most prestigious engineering firms, Gannett Fleming‘s culture of service, ingenuity and responsiveness empowers them to fulfill their key mission: making their clients successful.

The Challenge

The measure of a company’s success is often centered on revenue rather than the driving force behind those numbers—employee talent. To fuel their business, Gannett Fleming focuses on a perfect recruitment strategy.

Under pressure to maximise efficiencies and improve hiring operations the team at Gannett Fleming spent thousands on third-party recruiting agencies to fill open positions, all while attempting to work within their ATS, Ceridian.

The integration between iCIMS and Taleo ensures data governance and maximises recruitment efficiencies.

The Solution

Leadership at Gannett Fleming decided to search for a best-in-class talent acquisition platform.

During their search for a recruiting platform, Gannett Fleming considered Oracle to handle their recruiting needs, but felt their recruitment was not prioritised amongst their expansive list of business solutions.

Gannett Fleming chose iCIMS to handle their recruiting function and trusted Oracle Fusion to handle their post-hire needs.

The Results

iCIMS serves as the unified hub that ties together the complex world of talent acquisition and allows new hire data to be sent to Taleo Fusion with a seamless integration, ensuring optimum data governance and reducing manual data entry.

With iCIMS’ powerful reporting feature, they feel more confident in sourcing top talent, measuring time-to-fill, and ultimately empowered to adjust their recruiting strategy when needed to maximise their return on investment.

Gannett Fleming now has a simple and efficient talent acquisition workflow, enabling them to remove their dependency on headhunters and give their recruitment practices the attention it deserves with best-of-breed recruitment software.

“We weren’t pleased with the way Oracle Taleo deprioritized recruitment. iCIMS’ strategy started with recruitment.”
