Constance Hotels, Resorts & Golf cuts recruitment costs significantly with Oracle

Constance Hotels, Resorts & Golf cuts time-to-hire from 62 to 35 days and reduces costs significantly by consolidating recruitment on Oracle Cloud.

Constance Hotels, Resorts & Golf (Constance Hospitality Management Ltd) owns and operates several luxury hotels and resorts around the Indian Ocean. Each property traditionally managed its own staffing requisitions and candidates with limited tools. This made it difficult to quantify the effectiveness of staffing processes, manage recruitment advertising and agency spend, and share candidates across the group. Constance Hotels was looking to centralize all recruitment activities in order to standardize processes, optimize the candidate pool, and reduce staffing costs.


With Oracle TBE Recruiting Manager Cloud Service, we reduced time-to-hire from 62 to 35 days, reduced cost significantly, and enabled total visibility on the recruitment activities for each of our hotels and resorts. In addition, we significantly improved the candidate experience, strengthening our reputation as an employer of choice.

For the deployment of its Oracle TBE Recruiting Manager Cloud Service, Constance Hotels, Resorts & Golf selected Oracle Partner FoxTaskForce due to its extensive functional and technical experience. “Because the project was managed by our HR department and not IT, we wanted a partner that understood the staffing challenges we face in the hotel industry. FoxTaskForce consultants performed splendidly, and we continue to work with them regularly for further technical and process optimizations,” Sonia Gordon Gentil said.
