Before the advent of social media and the internet, a company looking to expand their team had to hope that a qualified candidate saw their job posting in the local newspaper or a trade magazine. As a result, hiring managers often found themselves talking to the same candidates or worse, ended up choosing less qualified individuals for open roles, simply because they did not have other options. Today, as the predominant workforce population transitions from baby boomers to millennials, businesses are enhancing their recruitment processes to connect with the new generation of candidates. And in light of the new and emerging touchpoints, candidate engagement has become a critical facet in a firm’s hiring process. However, without a strategy that allows the efficient orchestration of candidate interactions across the entire recruiting process, organizations are struggling to deliver the desired candidate experience, and in turn, failing to access, attract, or retain the best talent. Addressing this need for personalized and impactful recruitment processes with its unique continuous candidate engagement recruiting (CCE) model is California-based Jobvite.
According to Aman Brar, CEO of Jobvite, “Because of the internet, job seeking has now become similar to dating; people are being introduced to each other to see if they want to spend time together.” Based on this observation, Jobvite has developed the CCE, which is a candidate-centric recruiting model that encompasses both technology solutions and strategies to effectively engage with individuals at every step of the overall candidate journey.
Jobvite provides various tools that imbue efficiency into the critical facets of a firm’s recruitment process. Firstly, Jobvite Hire is the industry’s first candidate-centric applicant tracking system (ATS) that leverages its automated intelligence to help organizations screen and rank candidates quickly, forecast time-to-fill, and allows recruiters make better decisions, thereby saving time and costs.
Furthermore, the ATS’ powerful referral capabilities coupled with candidate matching enables firms to emphasize qualified candidates and filter out the less eligible individual. Jobvite Engage, on the other hand, assists recruiters in bolstering their recruitment marketing to make a great first impression for potential employees and keep them continuously engaged in their brand. Engage also offers unified sourcing tools to allow talent sourcing from a multitude of channels from one location. Subsequently, when a business plans to hire an individual, Jobvite Onboard bolsters the process by centralizing all onboarding activities and digitalizing the cumbersome HR and employee verification paperwork to maximize accountability and eliminate redundant paper entry.
Apart from its core offerings, the company also offers supplementary recruiting tools to further enhance the hiring processes of its clients. For instance, Jobvite Video, which is an on-demand video screening solution, accelerates and builds consistency in the applicant screening process. Jobvite has also designed a mobile hiring team application to save time by allowing seamless communication between members of the hiring team to review candidate profiles, send Jobvites, and gather feedback.
With a behemoth of such capabilities, Jobvite has grabbed the attention of businesses across a plethora of market segments and is igniting numerous success stories with its clients. In one instance, Jobvite helped Trustwave—a security tech company—hire talented employees. Initially, the limitations of utilizing conventional manual spreadsheet-filled recruiting operations were stymieing Trustware’s ability to hire the desired candidates. With Jobvite’s ATS, referral capabilities, and candidate-centric strategy, Trustware was able to quickly and cost-effectively hire high-quality employees, and enhance their organizational growth.
Owing to its impact on the overall recruitment space, K1, a leading investment firm that focuses on high-growth enterprise software companies, invested over 200 million dollars in Jobvite to create a market-leading talent acquisition platform in early 2019. And with this significant funding, Jobvite aims to further strengthen its industry-leading wave of recruitment innovation with CCE to increase the speed, quality, and cost-effectiveness of talent acquisition. “Our focus is to help leading companies win top talent and build the best teams with an award-winning candidate experience,” concludes Brar.
