Indeed provides the highest return on recruitment investments for a leading U.S. dairy manufacturer’s hourly jobs and highly specialized positions.

Background

As one of the country’s largest dairy processors and cooperatives, Foremost Farms USA supplies leading international food companies and retailers with high-quality dairy products and ingredients, including its award-winning cheeses.

With expanding processing facilities and ongoing infrastructure upgrades underway at its existing facilities, Foremost Farms USA needs a variety of hires across the Midwest to support its growing operations. “We take great pride in the fact that our average employee tenure is 13 years,” said Bonnie Wagner, Corporate Staffing Manager, Foremost Farms USA. “Hiring quality people who will grow with us as the company grows is very important.”

"Knowing that I can trust Indeed to deliver skilled candidates and measurable results for the jobs we sponsor provides a lot of confidence."

Approach

Foremost Farms USA sponsored its jobs on Indeed to reach candidates for both its hourly production jobs and its highly specialized positions — including a Chemist and a Production Engineer responsible for managing plant remodeling and robotics installation initiatives. Previously, it had proven difficult to fill such a variety of openings from traditional job boards.

Indeed is integrated with Foremost Farms USA’s applicant tracking system (ATS), OpenHire, making it easy to measure the performance of its Sponsored Jobs campaign and automatically track all applicants from Indeed with complete accuracy. “Anything that can save a recruiter time is huge,” Wagner said. “Knowing that I can trust Indeed to deliver skilled candidates and measurable results for the jobs we sponsor provides a lot of confidence.”

Results

Indeed drove more hires at a lower cost than any other recruitment source. “Indeed gives us the highest return on our recruitment investments,” Wagner said. “Large national job boards require greater investments of both time and money, yielding fewer results.”

Over an eight-month period, Indeed provided:

  • 20 hires (more hires than any other recruitment advertising source)
  • $539 cost per hire (lower than any other recruitment advertising source)
  • Titles hired included: Production Engineer, Corporate Safety Specialist, Chemist, Cost Accountant II, Production Supervisors, Maintenance Technician (hourly), Laboratory Technician II (hourly), Production Associates/Managers (hourly)
