Who Is Idenhaus?
Idenhaus is an IT consulting firm that specializes in Cybersecurity and Identity Management (IAM). Their growing company is headquartered in Atlanta, GA. Working with some of America’s most prestigious organizations, Idenhaus helps reduce the risk of security breaches, eliminate audit findings, enhance regulatory compliance, and safeguard their customers’ information.
In the summer of 2022, during the height of the “Great Resignation,” finding and keeping tech talent was a difficult task. The competition was at its peak as the big tech players ramped up hiring, expanding into remote locations with high compensation packages and perks.
Applicant flow was limited and tight candidate pools meant that they had to move fast. But without an in-house HR or recruiting resource, those responsibilities had fallen upon the Idenhaus leadership team, which meant balancing hiring activities with client projects and running the business. That often meant candidates were lost to competitors before having the chance to be interviewed.
The challenges faced by Idenhaus were considerable, but not insurmountable. What they needed was recruiting expertise, a streamlined process, strategy and a partner to execute.
We knew after talking with the CEO Hanno Eckhart and the leadership team, that what Idenhaus offered was a highly collaborative, non-hierarchical culture – with incredible opportunity for growth. Employees also have the opportunity to work directly with clients – many of them well-known household names. That gave us a differentiator that we could promote and build into a recruiting pitch, supporting their Employer Brand.
We also knew we needed to go after candidates, directly. This meant heavy sourcing. The skill sets Idenhaus needed were often hard to find, and sought after by contingency or off-shore recruiting teams.
Finding High Level Tech Talent
This is where our recruiting services are different. We aren’t just another recruiter – we act as an extension of our client’s in-house team. Our outreach is thoughtful and customized, demonstrating higher-than-average response rates and apply rates.
Using Idenhaus’s existing applicant tracking platform, we were able to build a strong pipeline of candidates by creating automation and efficiencies within their systems and adding personalized communications that ensured a positive candidate experience. Using the shared system in coordination with the Idenhaus hiring managers, we were also able to identify the best candidates and move them through the interviewing and hiring process quickly.
What started out as a short-term engagement to help Idenhaus with a few key hires, has progressed into a strong, recruiting partnership. The hiring success Idenhaus has experienced is directly aligned with this partnership!
Working remotely with the Idenhaus team has been successful because of the dedication of their leadership team’s open communication and prompt feedback. Having short, bi-weekly update calls, a shared Slack channel and an applicant tracking system have also helped to keep the process moving.
Idenhaus has been wonderful to work with and we look forward to our continued partnership!
