In this month’s Business Spotlight, we spoke with Ginny Chase, Human Resources Director at Westminster Communities of Florida. Westminster’s mission is to serve older adults, by providing beautiful and quality environments to enhance lifestyles at every level of independence. They are a leader in senior living, serving more than 7,000 residents in 22 communities throughout Florida. That makes them the largest senior living company in the state and the 10th largest in the nation.
A company as large as Westminster can have its challenges when it comes to finding highly qualified candidates, so Chase leverages iHire’s Job Wrap to automate job posts. Job Wrap saves time by automatically posting multiple jobs across iHire’s platform using an XML feed or career site URL. This helps companies like Westminster reach top candidates quickly.
