Bringing Insight and Innovation to The Recruiting Challenge.
President of Capango, Inc
As CEO of the retail execution platform Natural Insight, one of the things I loved the most about my job was engaging with our customers. Our dedicated team was amazing at supporting the day-to-day challenges of building and running a technology platform supporting retail organizations. That left me the opportunity to think longer-term and work with our customers on the strategies that drive growth, profitability, and success.
A couple of years ago one piece of feedback seemed to come up in every meeting with retail executives. The inability to find and onboard quality, engaged employees was hurting their bottom line. Shifts or work assignments were going unfilled, customers were not getting the service they expected, and supervisors were spending too much time scrambling to manage field operations.
As we dug into the problem a few key points drove us to start Capango.
Workers were frustrated with the recruiting process. Not just a little bit annoyed – they truly hated the process.
Supervisors were also frustrated at the inability to find the right candidates and often just settled for someone to fill the role.
Turnover was driven by employees in the wrong jobs that were not engaged in what they were doing every day at work.
The costs of constantly recruiting were a drain on the profitability of the employers.
We set out to fix the problem and Capango was born!
We know there are lots of job platforms that workers or employers can choose from, but most quite frankly are driven to simply advertise the jobs and not help improve the process. We focused on the feedback we received and built a totally new and simpler experience.
Our Key Objectives:
Focus on retail and restaurant workers with an industry specific platform.
Engage with job seekers through a simple easy to use mobile app.
Work to build a community of workers. Not just another job board!
Help job seekers build an amazing resume with just a few clicks.
Make connections easier with integrated chat and video chat.
Give recruiters the tools to find the right candidates with computer assisted scoring and candidate sorting.
Reduce turnover and recruiting costs.
The journey thus far has been a blast. I hope you’ll give Capango an opportunity to support your job search or recruiting needs. We’re focused on one thing – reinventing recruiting and creating a great experience that improves everyone’s goal of matching amazing workers to great work opportunities.
