Victaulic finds talent and time savings using scout
As a corporate recruiter for Victaulic, the world’s leading producer of mechanical pipe joining solutions, Judy Tierney was in a tough situation. “As the only operations recruiter at Victaulic, time is of the essence for me. That is my greatest asset. Every day I got slammed by messages from agencies. I just didn’t have the time to manage it.” Victaulic decided to try Scout Exchange and Judy said she could see the benefit right away.
“Before I had to deal with agencies one on one, and I would get inundated. I just didn’t have the time to manage it. Now Scout organizes it all for me. I can’t reiterate enough how much of a time savings Scout is for me.”

Using Scout, Judy has been able to find talent quickly and at a lower cost. She attributes part of this success to the intake sessions Scout moderates for key job postings. These virtual sessions bring together agencies and hiring managers to ask specific questions to be clear about the job specifics. Judy also notes that having the ability to “set the rate for contacts and have agencies bid on it,” makes search firms much more responsive.
Scout has given Judy back valuable time in her day. “The ability to coordinate contracts with a variety of agencies and have Scout funnel the positions is a real time saver. I just click on the link in Taleo to put the job out there through Scout and it makes life a lot easier. It’s seamless.”
