In the ever-evolving, competitive market of legal recruiting, success hinges on adapting quickly. Samantha Lia, Legal Recruiting Manager at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP, and her team have tackled lateral recruiting challenges with agility using Flo Recruit Applicant Tracking (ATS).
2020 forced everyone to change how they worked. Kramer Levin utilized available video platforms, email systems, and calendar invites, but the firm's legacy ATS wasn’t up to organizing everything in a single, easy-to-use platform.
Kramer Levin found the perfect solution in Flo Recruit, which let them send unlimited, branded virtual interview rooms and calendar invitations without risking human error. Plus, the live dashboard provided full control for a flawless candidate experience.
Then, Samantha expanded her use of Flo Recruit for a hybrid student recruitment approach, tracking all history and engagement in one place for fast, informed hiring decisions.
The team decided to apply Flo Recruit to another challenge Samantha and her team faced - lateral recruitment. To stay competitive, the firm had to find a way to streamline their process, understand candidate status quickly, and make the process more efficient for everyone involved. Flo Recruit provides an intuitive, easy-to-use system for candidate feedback, customizable invitations, reminders, and candidate pipeline reporting.
“Having a centralized candidate profile, where the team can enter and view their interaction histories and attorney interviewer feedback, in a single place, is the perfect way to understand a candidate's background and experience.“
While tackling lateral hiring, a related challenge arose in coordinating and tracking candidate submissions from attorney recruiting agencies. The firm's old method required manual effort, creating inefficiencies and occasionally duplicate submissions for the same candidate. With Flo Recruit, agencies securely upload candidates' documents directly, freeing time for the team and eliminating dual entry and manual efforts. In addition, time-stamped submissions removed any question of which agency submitted the candidate first.
“Since agencies can self-serve with Flo Recruit, we’ve eliminated the same candidate getting submitted from different agencies and streamlined a previously time-consuming manual process.”
Implementing Flo Recruit has been a game-changer for Samantha and her team. It has saved them an estimated 30% of their time and effort through automation, which has allowed them to focus on other essential tasks. In addition, it provides a centralized and organized system for candidate tracking and data, enabling the team to have a more holistic view of their recruitment efforts and focus time on more valuable tasks.
