Hirewell Fills 45 Roles in 18 Months for Hostway, a Cloud and Managed Hosting Vet


Executive Summary

Hirewell was retained by Hostway to manage their North American talent acquisition efforts through our Managed Recruiting Program (MRP).  Hostway had previously been relying on search firms and its internal HR team to manage hiring.

About the Client

Hostway Services, Inc. is a leader in managed cloud infrastructure and application hosting solutions for asset-lite, mid-market and e-commerce focused organizations and the companies that serve them. Its team of engineers in North America and Europe deliver reliable, secure and scalable private cloud, managed server, and hybrid cloud hosting solutions to over 500,000 customers across six geographically diverse datacenters. Hostway’s core products include Managed Hosting, Cloud Hosting, Web Hosting and Email and Applications.

The Challenges

Hostway did not have the bandwidth to handle the hiring volume and its hiring managers were not seeing the necessary candidates to make timely hiring decisions.  With offices spread across 6 locations in the United States and Canada, North American, decentralization added another layer of complexity.

The Solution

Hirewell allocated a team out of its Chicago office to manage all hiring in the United States and Canada.  Weekly conference calls with Corporate HR and hiring managers ensured that all parties were kept up to date on changing priorities and advancements so that the recruiting efforts were efficient and stayed on track.

The Results

Hostway saw improved recruiting metrics across the board, including reduced time-to-hire, significant reduction in the use of outside search firms and an average of 4 candidates interviewed per role. Hirewell made 45 hires in 18 months across multiple functions including IT, Sales, Marketing and Leadership roles.
