Wine Business Development

First thing in the morning, my hiring managers grab their coffees, turn on their computers, and check if they have new matches on Vocate. Before they have finished their first cup, they have already invited the most promising candidates for an interview. While they are actually having fun handling a usually tedious process, our company is gaining serious value.

Vocate helps us make better hiring decisions. Our time isn’t wasted on-boarding someone who doesn’t fit our company culture or carry the workload.

Taking The Pain Out Of Hiring

The Boswell Company is a heavy hitter in the wine industry and we depend on a constant flow of fresh, new people. I never expected recruitment would expend so much time, money, and human resources. Especially for niche industries and businesses whose products rely on highly skilled work, hiring the right people is crucial. Earlier in our business, it got to the point where we almost didn’t invest in inexperienced people because it was so difficult finding the right fit and getting them up-to-speed. But we wanted young talent and needed a better way of finding them.

There are so many recruiting companies out there these days. In all honesty, no other product or online tool has genuinely taken the pain out of hiring. Not only do I believe that Vocate’s matching algorithm is just better, there is a professional development aspect to their candidate sourcing. They help job seekers grow and polish their skills and interests before they make it to the hiring manager’s desk.

Taking The Risk Out Of Young Talent

There are so many recruiting companies and tools out there these days. In all honesty, no other product or online tool has genuinely taken the pain out of hiring.

Our job candidates are already matched and prescreened according to our needs. We don’t have to sift through hundreds of applicants and refresh our ads on various job boards. We also don’t have to take a risk on a good candidate who might not quite fit our company or the role. Vocate sends us a handful of packaged job seekers. These candidates are more developed than we’ve seen before and we don’t have to do as much work getting them up to speed. No other site gives such quality people with this kind of accuracy – job seekers don’t make it to us until they are ready.

Our People Are The Bottom Line

People are the most important part of our organization. They affect our day-to-day environment, which is ultimately the company’s bottom line. We rely on Vocate to source the right people every month. We don’t burn through people who aren’t a fit. We can look at people quickly, making our process much more efficient. Vocate helps us make better hiring decisions. Our time isn’t wasted on-boarding someone who doesn’t fit our company culture or carry the workload. Simply put – it’s a no-brainer – investing in Vocate means investing in your people.
