With nearly three million people, the city of Chicago is the third most populous city in the United States. It is a center of finance, industry, and culture in the Midwest region with multiple sports teams, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, and among other businesses a blossoming theatre district. The City of Chicago is one of the largest employers in the metropolitan area. With more than 34,500 employees, including 18,000 police and fire employees, its mission is to facilitate effective city service delivery by hiring the best possible candidates and maintaining professional human resources practices and programs.
The City of Chicago originally invested in Oracle’s HCM solutions in 2007 with the candidate experience career site, then again in 2008 with the candidate management and workflow deploying the Staffing WebTop functionality of Oracle HCM Cloud. The city regularly completes migration to new versions, on time and under budget.
With Oracle HCM Cloud, we have created an automated, transparent recruiting process that enables us to better screen our applicants and fill positions faster.
