Niagara Parks Commission partners with Cegid for New Applicant Tracking System
Simplicity, intuitiveness, main factors encouraging shift toward enhancing candidate experience and attracting the industry’s top talent.
Niagara Falls, ON – Last week, The Niagara Parks Commission, an operational agency of the Ontario Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries, launched Cegid’s Talent Management Suite.
Niagara Parks was looking for a means to simplify their hiring process. “Traditionally, Niagara Parks would review thousands of paper CVs and distribute to operational locations,” Niagara Parks Human Resources Business Partner, Hayley Grigoroff cited as a driver for simplicity in the recruitment process. The new digital strategy will serve to enhance ongoing Human Resources activities related to recruitment and onboarding.
As an organization that recruits a high volume of seasonal and student workers, the need to simplify and enhance the candidate experience was an identified need. “We received feedback that our application process was cumbersome for candidates,” said Grigoroff. Ease-of-use was an identified requirement for Niagara Parks’ new Applicant Tracking System. “We wanted a quick and easy application process that candidates can access from various mobile platforms,” she continued. “The new system also streamlines the hiring process for our Hiring Managers and Supervisors.”
Additionally, the Applicant Tracking System and Onboarding modules will incorporate a key component of Niagara Parks’ corporate mandate. “The ability to submit offer documents through the system reduces our environmental impact by limiting the use of paper forms, aligning with our mandate as the environmental and cultural stewards of the Niagara River corridor,” added Grigoroff.
