(PRWEB) September 24, 2004
Vancouver, B.C. - September 23, 2004 - HireDesk, a hiring solutions provider for corporate HR departments and recruiting firms, today announced the rollout of the HireDesk Quality of Hire solution Â specifically designed to help organizations identify, hire and retain the best possible staff, management and executives by tracking, measuring and continuously improving their Âquality of hireÂ processes. It is the first solution of its kind and the first to provide post-hire performance metrics to help companies continually improve their hiring process and the quality of people they bring onboard. This announcement comes one week after announcing doubled sales growth in the companyÂs first fiscal quarter.
The new solution seamlessly integrates HireDeskÂs HireQualityÂ - competency-based assessment and hiring tools, including: competency profiling, skill and ability testing, job fit assessments, competency-focused interview guides, background checks, online interviews, post-hire performance metrics and EEO reporting capabilities - with HireDeskÂs Corporate Recruiter - a full feature applicant tracking application. The result is the industryÂs most comprehensive hiring solution that empowers key hiring stakeholders with more and better data to choose the right candidate for the right job, and to measure the results for continual performance improvement.
According to David Jones, Ph.D., President, Growth Ventures Inc., former global head of Aon Human Resources Consulting, and HireDesk Director, ÂI believe HireDesk has created something unique Â a fusion of best practices in candidate recruiting and assessment with technology-driven, automated tools. The result is a powerful solution, with tools proven to improve quality of hire metrics such as turnover, new hire time-to-productivity, and the potential for new hires to move to higher level jobs.Â
ÂHireDesk is now delivering the first of a new breed of hiring applications that raise the bar on what HR can do for the organization,Â commented George LaRocque, HireDesk General Manager. ÂCompanies can now have all the tools to truly differentiate between good candidates and great employees, and to quickly and consistently hire and retain top quality employees, all within one product platform.Â
Since hiring a new employee is typically a major investment, HireDesk works with their customers to evaluate the return on the investment (ROI) in their hiring practices. ÂWith our solution, users can track and measure ROI beyond that which any traditional applicant tracking system can provide. In addition to measuring time-to-hire and cost-of-hire, HireQuality enables our customers to measure post-hire performance, retention, time-to-productivity and additional quality of hire metrics that provide a much more strategic impact to the organizationÂs success and bottom line,Â said LaRocque.
With Corporate Recruiter, users can easily access applicant information, track interactions with candidates, and perform intelligent searches on any attribute within the companyÂs talent pool. With HireQuality, customers use professionally-designed assessment tools to gather information that guides sound hiring choices, and reporting tools that help drive EEO compliance. HireDesk customers are provided with the tools and information they need to monitor hiring results, prepare required documentation, and alleviate areas of employment risk.
Dr. Jones concluded, ÂBy providing strong feedback on the quality of a companyÂs hiring results, we are helping HR departments to finally do something which has been very difficult to demonstrate in the past Â show their contribution to the company with hard, objective numbers.Â
HireDesk provides the industryÂs most comprehensive hiring solutions aimed at helping companies build a high-quality workforce, resulting in higher organizational performance, productivity and return on HR investments. HireDesk is the first company to seamlessly integrate proven competency-based assessments and hiring tools with a full feature applicant tracking system, resulting in customersÂ ability to improve their quality of hire each and every time.
