Description
Young Touchstone, a Wabtec Company, is a leading manufacturer in the freight and passenger rail, transit, power generation, off-highway equipment and industrial markets, was undergoing a significant workforce expansion in both of their industrial/locomotive heat transfer equipment divisions. With nearly 100 open requisitions and a three person Human Resources team that was spread across two facilities that were forty minutes apart, they were slightly overwhelmed. The team was finding themselves buried in paper applications, resumes and interview tracking sheets. They needed to implement a hiring solution that could help them automate this process to reduce administrative time, while also identifying candidates that were less likely to turnover.

This webcast will discuss the process that Wabtec implemented to meet their needs. We will review their new hiring process, from application to job offer, and how the technology behind this process has enabled Wabtec to accomplish their hiring goals and while significantly improving key metrics such as turnover. If you are an HR professional and find yourself in this situation, you are not alone! Please join us for this webcast as our speakers, Andy Deakins, Director of Human Resources and Safety of Young Touchstone, a Wabtec Company, and Adam Hilliard, Project Consultant of Select International will discuss best practices and lessons learned from their experiences. We’ll identify hiring tools that can be implemented into your process to greatly reduce the time you spend on administrative tasks, allowing you to focus on your core responsibilities. We will also explore how utilizing assessments in the hiring process can increase productivity while improving key metrics such as turnover and absenteeism.
