Effective recruitment optimization: Steris' success story with TalentSpring



Steris faced talent acquisition challenges that needed to be overcome. The low number of applicants via traditional job advertisements, location factors and budget constraints affected the company's recruitment efforts.


  • Low number of applicants via conventional job advertisements: Steris has noticed that the number of applicants via conventional job advertisements has declined in recent months, making it more difficult to fill vacancies.
  • Location factors influence recruitment: Steris was confronted with certain location factors that had a negative impact on recruitment and deterred potential applicants.
  • Budget restrictions for personnel service providers: The company had to forego cost-intensive personnel service providers during recruitment due to budget restrictions, which limited the selection options.


  • Effective active sourcing and support with initial interviews: Steris and TalentSpring conducted targeted active sourcing to proactively identify and approach qualified candidates. In addition, TalentSpring supported the initial interviews to accelerate the selection process and select qualified candidates more efficiently.
  • Location-specific targeting and overcoming recruitment barriers: Steris and TalentSpring worked to improve the perception of the locations and attract potential candidates through targeted communication about the benefits and potential of each location. This helped to minimize the negative impact of location factors.
  • Optimizing the recruiting budget and reducing dependency on recruitment agencies: Together, Steris and TalentSpring identified cost-efficient recruiting methods and processes. This enabled effective recruitment within budget and reduced the need for costly recruitment agencies.

"We have introduced innovative approaches such as targeted active sourcing to proactively approach qualified applicants. Through location-specific targeting and efficient budget utilization, we have improved applicant acquisition, accelerated the recruitment process and helped to attract and retain highly qualified talent for Steris."
