Early Results are In: ChirpyHire time to Scheduled Interview is less than 5 minutes
Introducing, ChirpyHire, an Atlanta based startup with big plans to help equip senior care providers across the country with better tools to meet caregiver candidates where they’re at – on their cellphones.
ChirpyHire is a recruiting tool and a two-way SMS messaging service that lets you customize text based surveys for candidates, build an ideal caregiver profile and then chat with the best fit candidates, at scale.
It works within your existing recruiting efforts, not to replace. Candidates from your existing job ads flow through ChirpyHire or you can upload passive candidates you might like to reconnect with. All this integrates with your CRM, ATS, or other “heavy duty” tools – enabling a seamless transition from top-of-funnel to new hire orientation.
As the ‘Caregiver Crisis’ rages on, more and more providers are looking for ways to be responsive to active candidates, manage their recruiting time better and sort through the ‘bad apples’ of candidates to spend more time on the quality candidates.
The founders, Wayne Henderson and Harry Whelchel, are Atlanta natives with a heart for service. “We believe there is an awesome opportunity to help providers connect with the caregivers on their mobile devices to speed up the application, screen and interview process with two-way SMS based messaging. It’s easy, fun and fast! The problem is not a lack of caregivers, it’s managing the time correctly and having the right tools on hand to effectively handle high volume job boards and applications,” explains Wayne Henderson, CEO of ChirpyHire.
While it’s easy for an ‘outsider’ to have the answers, there is no denying the early success and interest ChirpyHire is receiving from across the country. Their blog has proven to be a high traffic source for best practices on ‘Modernizing your Recruitment Process’ and an early test group of providers have increased their caregiver hiring output by +700%.
In fact, this test group of 6 senior care providers across 7 states used ChirpyHire to schedule 224 interviews in 30 days. The average time from first response to scheduled interview was less than 5 minutes.
“We’ve got a long way to go but we’ve proven that ChirpyHire is a modern take on an old problem. And that makes us hopeful. Messaging is the future of work!” says Wayne.
The ChirpyHire mission is to help support the relationship driven, community focused aspects of the current senior care provider markets across the country and make recruiting personal.
ChirpyHire helps caregiver recruiters with a web based service to build customized text based surveys, automate candidate follow ups & cultivation and setting next steps.
