Challenges

Hoyt Archery produces high-performance bows for Olympic archery competitors, bow hunters, and target archers. Located in Salt Lake City, Utah, and with customers in 40 countries, the company found its manual human capital management processes inefficient and time-consuming. Tedious paper-based HR tasks — from recruiting and hiring to benefits management and performance reviews — stifled employee engagement. Manual scheduling and tracking of time-off requests, and no real-time visibility into employee data, hindered managers in making timely workforce management decisions.

What Hoyt Archer needed was a solution that could:

  • Automate and simplify human capital management, from recruiting, hiring, and benefits administration to performance management and compensation reviews
  • Provide access to real-time labor data in a single location for extensive reporting and informed decision making
  • Deliver visibility into employee time for schedule adjustments to meet seasonal production needs while minimizing overtime costs
  • Automate the time-off request and approval process so employees can easily make a request and see its status, increasing transparency and satisfaction
“Workforce Ready does administrative tasks for me so I have more time and energy to focus on employee engagement, strategic planning, and in building this employee-employer brand that makes people want to work for Hoyt Archery.”
