BirdDog Delivers Top Candidates, Consistency and Compliance for LONG Building Technologies

DES MOINES, Iowa – March 26, 2014 – BirdDog, the leader in recruiting and applicant tracking solutions (ATS) for the construction and skilled trades industries, today announced LONG Building Technologies Inc. selected the BirdDog ATS to improve applicant quality and job distribution.

As a company supporting numerous federal contracts, LONG Building Technologies uses the BirdDog ATS to power strategic recruiting to support Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFFCP) compliance efforts, find and attract special technically-skilled candidates and reinforce consistency among hiring managers. After implementing the BirdDog ATS, LONG Building Technologies efficiently increased candidate flow for hard-to-fill positions, improved job distribution to more qualified candidates and increased manager buy-in.

From a strategic perspective, LONG Building Technologies is very happy with the improvements it has seen in its recruitment process. “Before using the BirdDog ATS, the recruitment function at LONG Building Technologies wasn’t providing as much value as we do today. Managers were handling the majority of recruitment and hiring without a proven, standardized and compliant process. In addition to the automation it brings, BirdDog gets managers to open their minds to other candidates and creates consistency in the hiring process,” said Amy Smith, Human Resources Manager, LONG Building Technologies.

LONG Building Technologies also gives the BirdDog ATS high marks for quick implementation, ease of use, and straightforward functionality. “The BirdDog ATS has unmatched functionality. You get exactly what you need and the system isn’t bloated with complicated functionality that you will never use.” Smith said.

Complete details of LONG Building Technologies’ talent acquisition success are available in the LONG Building Technologies case study.
