Prior to adopting pandoIQ, Avis Budget Group used a recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) firm to manage their job advertising and candidate sourcing. The RPO was advertising jobs across multiple sites to source applicants, but provided little to no visibility into how those sources were performing for Avis Budget Group and how effectively their job advertising spend was being managed. Lacking the right insights into performance and ROI, Avis Budget Group decided that bringing recruitment efforts in-house would give them more control. This meant that Avis Budget Group would need to establish their own recruitment KPIs, continue to meet existing hiring objectives, and increase their applicant to hire conversions. The challenge was how to accomplish all this with limited internal resources. Avis Budget Group realized that they needed to start automating the sourcing process and make better decisions on their recruitment spend. They decided that programmatic job advertising was the vehicle to make this a reality.
Avis Budget Group selected the programmatic job advertising platform, pandoIQ , to automate and optimize their job advertising process to meet their aggressive hiring needs. In addition, with pandoIQ, Avis Budget Group was able to proactively dictate the best sourcing strategy for each of their jobs using predictive insights made possible by AI-enabled algorithms. For example, by leveraging pandoIQ’s predictive data, they could proactively identify and assign hard-to-fill jobs to internal recruiters upfront instead of waiting to see how the job advertisement performed. Predictive data also brought to light job titles and descriptions that could hinder performance. With these insights they were able to optimize descriptions to improve performance before even campaigning the jobs. For the jobs that were predicted to perform well, Avis Budget Group allowed pandoIQ’s proprietary algorithms to do all the work—determining budget, targeting the right sites and candidates, and optimizing performance in real-time to return optimal results. The pandoIQ platform also gave them the flexibility to segment out job campaigns as they became more sophisticated. This allowed Avis Budget Group to better control the priority and spend on these more complex campaigns to return better performance and hit hiring goals.
