"At the beginning of the year, we kicked off the immigration season by sitting down with our hiring managers and saying: 'For those of you who don't know, this is our policy. This is why we practice it this way, what do you think? Do you think this is competitive, do you think that this is fair? Do you stand behind us, and if not, let's talk about it.' Because it is a partnership." Premiere Employee Experience Gulati feels Envoy helped Cvent embody the following famous quote from Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon. "Our employees trust us because Envoy has been able to empower us to really be efficient and good at our jobs," Perkins says. "Without it, I don't know that we'd be able to perform the amount of work and to make the headway that we've been able to accomplish in the past year plus that we've been with Envoy." "Previously, I worked with an attorney and now working with Envoy, the difference is like night and day." - Kaitlyn Perkins Setting Expectations Internally Envoy's technology is guided by a passion for alleviating the painful parts of managing the immigration process. And that passion can be contagious: Gulati and Perkins have taken what they've learned working with Envoy and developed a system for managing the internal workload of preparing a high volume of immigration cases. First, the HR department partners with the recruiting team to make sure everyone is on the same page, by transforming them into "mini immigration experts" to ensure an efficient case prep process. Gulati and Perkins also hold meetings with hiring managers who are bringing on a sponsored employee for the first time. They start with a general overview of the process then break it down into the steps involved with case prep. Next they complete the process with the employee. "It introduces Envoy as a resource to the employees," Gulati says. "We don't want to be the middleman. It's not effective for every question to be relayed through us. Employees need to feel comfortable going to Envoy directly." Standardizing Policies for the Better Cvent also has a standardized immigration policy that explains to all stakeholders what types of sponsorship programs they offer, when an employee is eligible for green card sponsorship and other important immigration details. "Your brand is what people say about you when you're not in the room" - Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO, Amazon
