How Talent Funnel enables Lantana to hire with ease in the flow of work


Lantana brings Australia’s café culture to London with cafes in five locations including Fitzrovia, London Bridge, and Shoreditch. We spoke with Steph Gray, Head of People at Lantana, to discover how Talent Funnel streamlines Lantana’s hiring process, saving valuable time for managers.

Lantana's Challenge

For a fast-paced business, it’s essential to minimise hiring admin, particularly when hiring across three sites. Lantana’s people team wanted improved visibility into the hiring pipeline and to reduce the amount of admin hiring managers had to perform.

Lantana's Goals

  • Enhance hiring efficiency across three sites – specifically; automation of hiring process, communication and reporting.
  • Tailor and customise the hiring process, from targeted job board advertising to personalised communication.
  • Cut onboarding time and boost data accuracy by integrating with their workforce management platform.

The Solution

To meet Lantana’s hiring needs, we recommended a mobile-first approach, enabling easy hiring around daily tasks. We activated “one-click apply” with top job boards and integrated Talent Funnel with their workforce management platform.
