Our flock of Roosters is more than happy to take on modern design challenges, branding, and creative work, and recently had the opportunity to do just that for The Good Samaritan Society’s career site. Let’s dive in and look at its new enhanced search functionality! A little backstory–The Good Samaritan Society is among America’s largest faith-based, not-for-profit organizations that provide housing to seniors and others in need. For over 100 years, this organization has put the needs of those it serves first, using the best practices in modern healthcare, to transform the aging experience in America.
In 2019, they began partnering with Sanford Health (another Recruit Rooster client) to provide more resources to seniors. Thanks to their upstanding history and services, The Good Samaritan Society has more than 300 locations across the United States that offer care and services. To continue providing the same high level of care, they needed to continue hiring for their positions across the country ranging from nursing to housekeeping, dietary specialists, and more–and we jumped at the chance to assist.
Every Recruit Rooster solution is tailored specifically to the needs of our client.
Always at the forefront of technology, we flew into action to transform The Good Samaritan Society’s job search and candidate matching capabilities by implementing Google’s Cloud Talent Solution. This new AI solution offers superior search capabilities such as automatic spelling correction, company jargon recognition, industry acronyms and abbreviations, and an understanding of real-world location.
These pieces work together to increase quality hires, decrease time to hire, and better yet, continue to improve matching over time as it learns what job seekers and employers are looking for on YOUR platforms. Sound intriguing? For The Good Samaritan Society, this was just what the doctor ordered!
