Stearns Lending Speeds Hiring and On-Boarding by Adopting Jobscience Recruiting CRM Platform

Stearns Lending, Inc., is a leading national mortgage lender with Retail, Wholesale, Correspondent and financial institution business channels, has improved the productivity and collaboration of its recruiters and on-boarding team through the use of the Jobscience’s Recruiting CRM platform.

Stearns Lending had been relying on spreadsheets to track recruiting and employee on-boarding activities. The firm wanted to accelerate its hiring process and gain efficiencies, but needed a robust recruiting platform that could manage all candidates through the recruiting process, while also advancing applicants through the hiring process.

“It’s amazing how many companies still use spreadsheets to track recruiting activities,” said Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience. “But once they see the power of our flexible cloud-based applicant tracking systemthat takes a relationship management approach to hiring top talent — moving away from spreadsheets is a no-brainer.”
