Wayne, PA – November 2, 2015 – SkillSurvey, the leading provider of hiring solutions to effectively recruit, hire and manage employees to drive business results announced that its strong pace for 2015 continued in the third quarter with an increase of 110% in new bookings over the same quarter last year.
“With research showing that the fastest-growing jobs in today’s workforce are those that require social skills, understanding the soft skills of candidates you are hiring is more important than ever. The demand SkillSurvey is experiencing shows that employers value the candid and deep insight that references can provide,” said Ray Bixler, SkillSurvey’s President and CEO. “Our ability to provide reliable information in a fast, easy and convenient way for recruiters, job candidates and their references is a game-changer.”
A new study “The Growing Importance of Social Skills in the Labor Market” highlighted in a recent New York Times article found that the fastest growing jobs in today’s workplace involve both a high degree of thinking (such as math) and social skills. SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360® allows hiring managers and talent acquisition teams to obtain information related to a candidate’s past performance based on answers provided by prior managers, coworkers, and direct reports to job-specific questions. The questions specifically relate to behavioral competencies that research shows are correlated with success for that job.
In addition to the growth in interest for its Pre-Hire 360® solution, SkillSurvey is also seeing increased demand for its Credential 360® solution which provides an automated way to collect peer reference and verification of hospital affiliations for healthcare practitioners. Credential 360 dramatically reduces the time it takes to credential physicians and other practitioners, allowing customers to onboard them faster in order to better serve patients and drive revenue.
