Case-Mate is a strong global consumer brand with significant social presence.
The company experienced explosive growth, with new employee projections of 200+ in the U.S., China, Ireland, Brazil and India. The casual, yet energetic spirit of the workplace environment makes it a favorite among existing team members; however, the company needed help to tell its story to prospective employees.
SPLICE partnered with Case-Mate to develop a strategy for a talent acquisition and define an authentic employer brand.

Over the first 3 months, SPLICE worked with the Case-Mate human resources team to develop a talent acquisition department, establishing TA strategies and a mindset that “recruiting is marketing.” The candidate experience became a cornerstone for all recruitment strategies. We created a library of videos – focused on Case-Mate’s unique corporate culture and benefits – to share via career-specific social media channels and employees’ personal networks. Videos served a replacement for job description. A responsive landing page was developed to highlight culture versus standard “job specs,” powered by videos featuring key departments.
During the second half of the year, we took a deeper dive into TA strategies and the creation of an impactful candidate experience, successfully utilizing blogs, videos, personal connection with recruiters, engagement with managers, and other non-traditional tools. Jobvite became the applicant tracking system of choice due to the social sharing ability and tracking of referrals.
