Chalhoub Group uses candidate data to brand, source and hire e-commerce talent
Chalhoub Group is a leading partner for luxury goods across the Middle East. Faced with the challenges of COVID-19 and reduced traffic to brick-and-mortar locations, the Chalhoub Group expedited their e-commerce strategy. This shift in strategy required their recruitment team to quickly source and hire needed technical talent. Using talent pool data and insights on employer value propositions, recruiters successfully located and hired critical roles.
Quickly find ecommerce talent
Expediting the Chalhoub Group’s ecommerce strategy also meant expediting the company’s recruitment demands for more technical talent. Recruiters were in need of talent pool data and insights into what company qualities attracted candidates the most.
