What Problem(s) Was the Customer Trying to Solve?
An executive search firm
Dedicated to connecting talent with non-profits, educational organizations, foundations, and social impact corporations
Specialized in providing a wide range of talent management services including organizational consulting, transition planning, team effectiveness, and executive placement
Needed to improve their recruiting capabilities
Aimed to centralize their search pipeline
Wanted to provide transparency across their team with the ability to provide status of each engagement, generate a hub for collaboration, and setup tools that could be leveraged to track and engage potential talent in the search process
How Did Smartsheet’s Solutions Solve the Problem?
Implemented a solution that provided an engagement pipeline and tracker to maintain current searches
Beyond the main tracking sheets, a variety of automations were leveraged to engage the firm and keep them informed of their leads through every step of the process. Consultants are able to use their personal pipelines to request proposals, contracts, and engage the finance team
Dashboards were developed to provide insight into resourcing, business development, and active engagements for both leadership and consultants
An external form was developed and embedded into their site that allows potential clients to add their projects into the pipeline directly which has significantly reduced the time spent in responding to email inquiries and following up on leads
This new Smartsheet solution completely changed the way the search firm tracks and manages their searches
Led to increased transparency and collaboration across the entirety of the organization
