Hirewell was retained by cleverbridge to augment their internal recruiting efforts through our Managed Recruiting Program (MRP). cleverbridge had an immediate hiring need for multiple Customer Service Representatives, as well as other high-priority openings within IT, Sales, Account Management and Marketing. After accomplishing all of the original hiring goals, Hirewell’s services were extended to support ongoing needs. From Entry-level to Director-level, Hirewell has carefully selected and hired 30 new employees for cleverbridge, adhering to the philosophies and unique culture they are striving to preserve.
About the Clientcleverbridge provides global subscription billing technology, services and expertise to leading digital goods and services companies across a variety of industries.
The Challengescleverbridge did not have the bandwidth to handle the staffing volume resulting from growth initiatives and newly-developed roles within the company. The newness of the roles required a thorough understanding of each department’s goals and consultation with the hiring managers to determine ideal suitability within realistic parameters. Due to the complexity of their ecommerce solution, a targeted and systematic approach was needed to identify candidates able to provide immediate contribution. The client’s progression from organic growth (internal promotion) to one requiring outside expertise and greater diversity required thoughtful outreach and candidate assessment.
The SolutionHirewell placed a recruiter on-site to gain critical insight of their culture and to provide accessibility to hiring managers and team members. Hirewell also provided back-end support with our internal recruiting team and sourcing tools.
Within the first 3 weeks of the project, Hirewell secured 5 Customer Service Representatives for the hiring initiative. Hirewell improved the hiring velocity by 37.5% - facilitating more hires in the first 3 months of engagement than the 8 months prior. Hirewell decreased the client’s prior reliance on external placement agencies and improved the quality of hire. Staffing key IT, Sales and Account Management hires saved the client nearly $110,000 in external agency placement fees.
Hirewell was retained by Combined Insurance to create a Managed Recruitment Program (MRP) to quickly fill current openings during a major hiring push right after a major internal loss. Hirewell expand Combined Insurance’s workforce with bilingual talent to support its rapid growth in the Latino community.
Hirewell created a custom solution and filled 45 roles in 4-5 month, with an average time-to- hire of 42.75 days.
About the ClientCombined Insurance, a Chubb company, is a leading provider of supplemental accident, health and life insurance products in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
The ChallengesCombined Insurance was at a point of critical hiring with over 30 open positions in its downtown Chicago office. The openings spanned across three key departments; Claims, IT and Operations. Additionally, the client’s in-house recruiter left the company right before Hirewell engaged, eliminating the internal team at this location. Finding strong bilingual talent was paramount as Combined Insurance was heavily expanding in the Latino markets.
The SolutionHirewell partnered with Combined Insurance to create a custom MRP joint solution that quickly and completely took over the company’s recruiting efforts. The team included three dedicated recruiters and a combination of onsite and offsite resources.
45 roles were successfully filled in 5.5 months across 5 key areas; Claims, Contact Center IT, Retention and Underwriting. 41% of these 45 new hires were bilingual.
Hirewell identified 4 important IT Manager-level hires, and because Combined Insurance had traditionally used outside firms for these positions, it saved the client nearly $90,000 in external agency placement fees.
The 3 phases of 6 new hires needed per month in the Contact Center was completed on schedule. An internal quality study showed our Contact Center new hires were already outperforming tenured staff after a short time.
In 2015, Hirewell was retained by the Marmon Group to manage the recruitment process for the build-out of a new 39-person IT Organization, dedicated to The Duracell Company after its acquisition of Duracell from Proctor & Gamble.

The Challenges11 months to 1) Define the recruitment process and the 2) Facilitate Organizational design 3) Hire 27/28 roles
The SolutionHirewell had to quickly gain the trust of the new Global IT Leader of Duracell, as this resource would be the major stakeholder for the rest of the project. A full-time, onsite Hirewell recruiter was embedded into the Marmon/Duracell offices to ensure constant feedback loops and real time issue resolution. Working with the Global IT Leader, Marmon HR and Marmon Finance, Hirewell developed an organizational design, compensation structure and the recruitment and interview processes for the IT Organization including interview team assignments, strategies, offer negotiations and offer approvals through Marmon HR. Marketing collateral, job descriptions and offer cadence were developed to attract best-in- class talent to the Organization. These descriptions have been retained by Duracell for later use.
27 of the 28 roles allocated to Hirewell were successfully filled with no attrition for an acceptance rate of 96.4%. For this accomplishment, Hirewell was rewarded with additional business within the Duracell Finance Organization. Hirewell secured, recruited and filled a role within the Finance group at Duracell.
The Duracell/Hirewell partnership resulted in accomplishing the goal of equipping the business with best in class IT Talent within timelines and budget constraints. Ongoing discussions continue about how Hirewell can be of assistance to the Duracell Organization in the future.
