SEATTLE, Wash.—Leisure Care, one of the nation’s largest privately-held retirement and assisted living companies, today announces its decision to implement Jobalign, a leading recruiting technology focused on hourly job seekers, across its senior living portfolio.
“Leisure Care is a leader in this space,” says Doug Johnson, CEO of Jobalign. “‘Recruitment’ may not be a fun word for a lot of organizations, but Leisure Care’s commitment to best practices, in addition to a passion for challenging conventional thinking and dedication to creating a thriving place to work and live is what makes them successful. It is a joy to be able to fit within their fantastic culture, to help their communities find and hire the staff that makes a difference in the lives of seniors across the country.”
Leisure Care’s core philosophy puts people first. “Our company has grown with a close focus on our employees,” says Ryan Rasar, COO of Leisure Care. “We look for great people who want to make a positive impact and do the right thing, and without a good pool of candidates, it’s a real challenge.”
“We are thrilled to have a strong partnership with Jobalign, whose values closely align with ours. When we piloted the tool, we saw an improvement in the speed of hiring and had greater insight into the recruiting process at our communities. Then, when we expanded the tool across our entire organization, we created even better cost efficiencies and had a radical improvement in talent acquisition results. The ease of adoption and the training support the Jobalign team provides our team members has far surpassed our expectations.”
Kelly Crispino, Leisure Care’s lead recruiter, has been using the tool regularly. “The turnaround time for posting jobs is much faster using Jobalign. It’s been an improvement for the communities to have this common tool and hiring managers have loved the convenience of an efficient tool at their fingertips. It really allows them to take ownership of recruitment for their communities and schedule interviews faster, before the best candidates are gone.”
Competition in senior living hiring is fierce! The senior living industry is on pace to outstrip job growth in the overall private sector for the 20th consecutive year, according to Argentum’s 2020 Forecast Report. Jobalign’s commitment is to offer a common technology tool across Leisure Care, in order for the organization to out-engage and out-communicate with job seekers, and ultimately be hyper-successful in this tough hiring landscape.
Hiring managers love that Jobalign makes it easy to attract, engage, and hire hourly workers. Hourly job seekers love the engaging and positive candidate experience and simple application from any device. Jobalign is the nation’s leading hourly recruiting technology that helps attract and communicate with hourly talent more efficiently. Jobalign enables job seekers to quickly and easily apply for positions through an optimized application experience. Jobalign allows recruiters to reach out directly to candidates through text, significantly reducing friction and abandonment rates while increasing speed and number of candidates received. Jobalign seamlessly integrates with enterprise applicant tracking systems to create an applicant profile while engaging the candidate throughout the hiring process.
