a2107The New England Center for Childrena2107? is a private, nonprofit autism research and education center dedicated to transforming the lives of children with autism worldwide through education, research, and technology. They’ve educated over 13,500 children with autism since their founding in 1975 and employ a staff of over 1,100 who serve students and families around the world.
NECC trains and educates the next generation of autism educators so that more children with autism receive the services they need to reach their potential. To find these future life-changing educators, talent acquisition plays a vital part in NECC’s overall business strategy. Prior to partnering with WayUp, NECC’s need for top talent was continually on the rise, but the pool of qualified candidates failed to meet those demands. Since they target a specific group of professionals, it was critical they not only attract more top talent but also respond to qualified candidates quickly and before the competition.a2107?a2107
Prior to WayUp, NECC would source candidates through different universities and job boards while also posting open roles on their website and social media channels. These open roles were all being funneled in various, disparate ways. Some roles would flow straight through NECC’s applicant tracking system (ATS), while other roles had a call to action for candidates to submit an application to a general email address. For the emailed applications, the team would manually upload talent into their ATS system—time that could have been spent nurturing those qualified candidates.a2107?a2107
A paper-heavy recruiting process was also hindering the team from implementing an efficient hiring strategy that would drive the quick results they were looking for. With a small HR team that wore many different hats, they knew it was critical to optimize and speed up their early-career recruiting to provide classrooms with the vital resources they needed year-round. To do so effectively, they needed to streamline their candidate sourcing and screening processes—fast.

During onboarding, WayUp provided NECC with custom templates and scheduled all upcoming checkpoints. WayUp’s templated approach and timely communication made the new partnership a stress-free and turnkey experience.
“When you’re super busy, taking on a new project isn’t something you want to do. With WayUp, I found it really reassuring even before we got started. a2107It was easy, which was refreshinga2107,” said Schnaible.
