Allergy experts opt for Global Workforce Collaboration to support, train and recruit employees
Sage People today announces that United Allergy Services (UAS), a leading healthcare services company empowering doctor and health systems to deliver safe and effective allergy testing and immunotherapy services, has selected it to streamline and manage its human resource, human capital management and recruitment processes, bringing together its global team on a single platform.
Founded in 2009 and employing over 900 people, UAS’s service line includes 520 Allergy Centers, education of medical professionals, technology services, regulatory compliance, quality assurance, and supply and inventory management. Today UAS’s contracted physicians provide allergy testing and treatment to more than 60 million U.S. residents suffering from allergies.
As a rapidly growing company, the human resources team at UAS was challenged with the burgeoning employee records it was required to manage. UAS also needed to find a solution that would integrate with Salesforce.com and other current systems in use by UAS.
Peter Gerard, VP of Human Resources at UAS said: “We were keeping our HR and recruitment records in paper files, making any reporting or searching of data lengthy and inefficient. We needed a system which could help manage our human capital and recruitment processes efficiently and quickly.”
UAS chose Sage People in part due to its use of the Force.com platform and its full compatibility with existing technology in use by the company. After the initial consultation with Sage People, UAS selected the two modules that would help them address the business challenges they faced. Gerard added: “Sage People had some great features to offer which we knew would provide a solution to the challenges we were facing. This, along with its ability to plug directly into the Salesforce.com environment made it the clear choice for us.”
UAS selected Sage People Recruit, because of its ability to integrate and audit the entire process of recruitment, which for a rapidly growing organization like UAS was essential. It also opted for a second Sage People module, Human Capital Management (HCM), to bring together processes such as performance ratings, job descriptions and development plans in a single portal.
“Our HR team saw a difference immediately. It eliminated the need for paper files and enabled us to electronically process candidate applications in a system which is easy to track. Sage People Recruit has made the process of finding and assessing applicants easier, allowing us to search by applicant and vacancies online and automate the hiring and on-boarding process,” continued Gerard.
“On the Human Capital Management side of the program, Sage People has the ability to save employee data and run useful reports which allow managers to track employee development and engagement,” said Gerard.
Nic Scott, Sage People’s Chief Executive Officer, added: “Employee collaboration has been a big focus for us in the past year, and our success with companies like UAS proves the value in bringing together employees and recruitment processes in a single place. It has been great to work with UAS to support its growth and strong focus on employee development.”
