Building your talent pipeline.

Companies around the world have benefitted from hiring our Revols—it’s the premium solution to finding high quality cloud talent, at speed.

American Express

For American Express, finding and retaining outstanding Salesforce talent is an ongoing challenge, and its permanent team is heavily supplemented by contractors and consultants.
With every single unit of the business powered by Salesforce, AMEX were looking to build a sustainable and flexible talent pipeline, one that would allow them to create their own internal centre of excellence and move away from an over reliance on contractors. After investing a lot of time and money in graduate programs, they found that 70% of the graduates just didn’t stick around and didn’t have the passion for building a career in Salesforce. Keen to develop a more diverse and sustainable pipeline of talent, AMEX partnered with Revolent to build a team of onshore developers. The Revolent model provides AMEX with complete flexibility to scale resources up and down, throughout their global locations, and to create a Salesforce centre of excellence with certified professionals who are passionate about Salesforce.

Publicis Sapient

Revolent helped Salesforce platinum partner Publicis Sapient to quickly grow its technical Salesforce ability following several project wins.

After taking on a major new project, Publicis Sapient needed to quickly build their team with certified Salesforce consultants, ready to be deployed within 12 weeks. Traditional hiring methods were going to take too long as would graduate programs, which also wouldn’t deliver them the level of technical skills they required.

Publicis Sapient approached Revolent who identified suitable Revols who could be deployed quickly. Revolent developed a customized 9 week training program, which included a mixture of hands-on technical learning and custom training that was tailored to Publicis Sapient’s processes and working culture.

Through this partnership, Publicis Sapient were able to expand their team, without any of the hassle of recruiting and training talent, in a cost effective and timely way.

 

“We were extremely timebound—we knew this wasn’t resource that could be delivered through ‘traditional’ hiring routes. As a result of their work at the start of the process, Revolent knew exactly what we were looking for—we hired 90% of the candidates we interviewed. We’re thrilled with the outcome of our partnership with Revolent.”
