Bosch goes live with SmartRecruiters

This partnership positions Bosch to make recruitment a competitive advantage globally

Bosch, leading global supplier of technology and services, went live with the SmartRecruiters Talent Acquisition Suite across more than 260,000 associates – making this the largest global deployment of a next-gen TA Suite to date. “Our drive to stay on the forefront of innovation is key to our continuing growth, so attracting the right people for our team is a top priority for us”, says Rosa Lee, Senior Vice President of Corporate Human Resources at Bosch. “We selected SmartRecruiters because they are very customer-oriented and deliver a global scale product, which provides the best user experience for candidates, hiring managers and recruiters.”

With this new system, Bosch takes recruiting to the next level. All recruiting processes and system features are designed “candidate first”, meaning that increasing the candidate’s experience is at the center of attention. Bosch is convinced that implementing innovative recruiting technology that engages talents with best experience is crucial for enhancing their employer branding on the recruiting front.

Rosa Lee stated, “We’re convinced that all recruiting processes and tools should be designed around the user’s needs. That’s why we chose “candidate first” as our leading UX principle when designing it. Our partnership with SmartRecruiters is proving to be very strong since we first went live in January 2017 in China and US. We went live with 60,000 employees in just 90 days and have continued with additional 200,000 users in several countries all over the world until today.”

The vendor evaluation process conducted by Bosch focused on a new category of talent acquisition suite capabilities. The business needs demand a solution that went beyond the typical applicant tracking capabilities and required a more agile, open and innovative solution, with great service levels globally and in compliance with the privacy and security requirements in around 60 countries.

Jerome Ternynck, CEO and Founder of SmartRecruiters, commented, “I am both humbled and delighted to partner with such an innovative organization and look forward to helping transform Bosch’s recruiting capabilities and ensuring that the company achieves its global strategic hiring objectives.”
