“The needs of this industry vary greatly and can be much different from those of typical in-house corporate recruiters,” said Rob Bennett, Vice President of Channel Alliances at SkillSurvey. “SkillSurvey has been adding features and enhancements that help staffing firms substantially reduce time-to-hire, build a database of potential candidates who served as references, and deliver data-driven insight to their clients – all while growing their businesses. SkillSurvey’s staffing customers benefit from a nimble technology team who are adapting and developing new solutions to help staffing firms maximize their use of references in the hiring process.”
More staffing firms and recruiters are realizing the tremendous insight and competitive advantage they can gain from SkillSurvey’s patented online reference solution, which quickly connects them to references while delivering professional reports that can be passed on to clients to help them make better hiring decisions and predict on-boarding and training needs. SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360® provides access to over hundreds of job-specific surveys, ensuring that the information gathered through the solution is targeted and useful. SkillSurvey also helps recruiters cultivate a powerful database of passive candidates who served as references – a highly targeted pipeline of potential candidates within the same industry verticals. Staffing and recruiting firms are not only benefiting from the time savings generated by automating the process, but the Pre-Hire 360 solution is helping them be more strategic, while boosting their consumer and employment brand.
New SkillSurvey offerings for staffing and recruiting firms include:
Candidate Snapshot Report – a one-page overview which can easily be shared with clients to provide a snapshot of the candidate, including overall scores broken out by managers and all references, verbatim comments, and reference information.
Integration opportunities – providing ways for staffing and recruiting firms to package SkillSurvey’s solutions with their own services.
Passive Candidate Sourcing® – a new way to leverage and build relationships with a candidate’s references, helping firms quickly build a pool of highly-qualified and warm potential passive candidates for future job openings.
Marketing solutions to help firms promote their offerings – brochures, thought leadership collateral and other online assets.
“Our partnership with SkillSurvey allows us to offer our clients detailed, position-specific data on candidates’ skills when we present them with options for their hiring needs,” said Paula Rutledge, President of Legacy MedSearch, a medical device recruiting firm founded in 2005. “The reports we can share are crucial, allowing our clients to quickly assess which candidates can best meet their needs, ultimately saving them time and money and boosting productivity.”
