How Advorto helped the organisers of the UK legs of the 2014 Tour de France recruit a team of thousands
Advorto technology is flexible, robust and feature-rich. The short timescales involved and the unpredictable nature of the level of interest in volunteering meant the technology had to be adaptable at very short notice.
Prospective Tour Makers had registered their interest via a non-Advorto system over the preceding weeks. Work Resourcing were able to import thousands of registrants within a few clicks. Then recruiters simply invited everyone to log in and complete the full application form. Over the five months of the campaign, over 12,000 SMS messages and 140,000 emails were sent from the system without a hitch!
From automated rejection of applicants unable to meet basic requirements, candidates underwent video interviewing using integrated third-party technology. After successful background security checks, candidates were offered the chance to Volunteer – over 7,000 Tour Makers were successfully appointed.
