About the Company

Esler Companies is the holding company for a fleet of the top Renewal by Andersen affiliates in Arizona, Colorado, Greater Philadelphia, and Southern New England. RbA is the full-service window replacement division of Andersen Corporation, owner of the most trusted family of window brands in America for 115 years.


Finding its outdated approach no match for the evolving talent landscape, the company decided it was time to overhaul its talent strategy. Looking to build a network
of talent acquisition partners and a Centralized Recruitment Team, Esler Companies set out to find a strong technology partner that could support its transformation.


“We put a strategic initiative in place where we wanted to develop a talent acquisition team and get really smart about hiring and move into a recruiter model,” says Christina Schmit, Director of Talent. That led the company to Lever — the perfect match.
