Too much time was necessary for HR personnel at the Department of Public Safety to process a "Request to Fill" for civilian positions. In addition, information from HR was not readily available or communicated to hiring managers. The situation was causing frustration and delays.

Biggest Change:
Better communications and changes to the process produced a streamlined process. Automation began in mid-summer of 2015.

Other Changes:
Roles were combined for greater efficiency. Twelve offices/people are involved in the new process, compared to 19 previously.

Steps - Baseline: 189
Steps - Projection: 148

Handoffs - Baseline: 91
Handoffs - Projection: 47

Time from "Request to Fill" to job posted at NEOGOV  - Baseline: 9-111 days
Time - Actual: 5-40 days (63% reduction)
