Covia Announces New Career Site
Covia is proud to announce a brand-new Career Site for job seekers interested in learning more about Covia and joining our team. The site enables individuals to easily search for open positions within Covia while also obtaining a sneak peek into what makes Covia a Great Place to Work!
Over the past five months, Covia’s Human Resources team has partnered with Jobvite to create a new career website that more accurately reflects Covia’s mission, guiding principles, brand and culture. The redesigned site features testimonials from Covia team members and details of company benefits as well as graphic representations of its guiding principles.
“Our goal for this new web experience was to represent, in its truest form, what it’s like to work here at Covia” says Wendy Dugan, Human Resources Business Partner for Talent Acquisition. “We felt it was important to feature content accurately reflecting the day-to-day ‘feel’ of our organization through pictures and testimonials from our Covia team members at our communities. More than anything else, navigating the site had to be straight-forward and mobile optimized with a clean and user-friendly application process.”
The partnership with Jobvite also advances Covia’s commitment to integrating environmentally friendly practices in the workplace. Prab Brinton, Vice President of Human Resources, notes “Covia’s commitment to being Green is much more than a catchy slogan, it’s a belief woven into the fabric of our culture. ‘Being Green’ begins with our recruiting process.”
“Two years ago, our recruitment was paper-intensive, laborious and very slow. We were actually losing candidates because the process was so slow,” she adds. “With our commitment to ‘People not Paper’ and through our tremendous partnership with Jobvite, we’ve advanced our hiring process so that we’re able to actively connect with candidates in the way (and speed) they want – namely: email, text, and chat.”
In addition to the new Career Site, Covia was presented with the Constellation Award at September’s Recruiter Nation Live conference. The Constellation Award celebrates “outstanding achievement in hiring efficiency through collaboration, organization, and data analysis.” The honor was awarded to Covia’s Human Resources team to honor how Covia made use of the Jobvite tools to streamline the end-to-end hiring process.
“Finding talented people who are a solid fit for the organization is difficult enough in today’s market. We realized the advertisement and application process had to be clean and straightforward,” notes Dugan. “Now we have a tool enabling candidates, Covia hiring managers, and Human Resources to all communicate effectively while at the same time ensuring the hiring process remains on track.”
Please visit the new Career Site to learn more about Covia and our culture. We invite you to submit an application for a job that matches your interests and hope you will join the team.
