Customer Spotlight: How Santee Cooper Used PeopleFluent Recruitment Software to Transform Their Organization
See how South Carolina's state-owned electric and water utility company, Santee Cooper, took control over their recruitment process by deploying PeopleFluent recruitment software.
Santee Cooper's Solution to Recruitment Woes
South Carolina's state-owned electric and water utility is the state's largest power producer, and as such requires a significant, talented workforce.
However, a third of the organization is facing retirement, leaving the HR staff with a monumental task: replacing the exiting employees by hiring top candidates, all without the use of a sophisticated recruitment solution. Without such a solution, Santee Cooper's recruiting supervisor and the rest of the HR team needed to manually handle the candidate sourcing, hiring, and onboarding.
That's why Santee Cooper turned to PeopleFluent to provide its HR teams with an advanced recruitment software system to help address these needs. With PeopleFluent recruitment software in place, the company was able to handle 5,000 new applicants—a gargantuan number for a company with 1,700 employees!
