About the Customer

Robert Bosch GmbH, or Bosch, is a world-leading multinational engineering and electronics company headquartered in Gerlingen, near Stuttgart, Germany. The company was founded by Robert Bosch in Stuttgart in 1886. Bosch is 92% owned by Robert Bosch Stiftung.

Scope and Challenges

The business needed a solution that went beyond the typical applicant tracking capabilities and required a more agile, open and innovative solution, with great service levels globally and in compliance with the privacy and security requirements in around 60 countries.

A big problem for truck drivers is finding a suitable parking space to comply with legal rest times. It's always a big headache for track drivers no available parking areas, parking lots are always overcrowded. Organized crime is gaining traction this puts drivers and their cargo increasingly at risk.

Outcome and Implications

Bosch went live with the SmartRecruiters Talent Acquisition Suite in 2018 across more than 260,000 associates – making this the largest global deployment of a next-gen TA Suite to date. 

With this new system, Bosch takes recruiting to the next level. All recruiting processes and system features are designed “candidate first”, meaning that increasing the candidate’s experience is at the center of attention.

Bosch is convinced that implementing innovative recruiting technology that engages talents with the best experience is crucial for enhancing their employer branding on the recruiting front.

Bosch has developed a safe and reliable solution in cooperation with SAP, Bosch secure truck parking. Lot operators can go online and inform their customers about available parking a, also can offer spaces for reservations in some regions. This solution will even be applied to corporate parking spaces.

It's important that we combine our respective strengths and develop cross-industry scenarios together" said Tanja Rueckert CEO/President Bosch Building Technologies.
