HireAbility Partners with SkillSurvey to Enhance Placement Performance

Share Article

Recruiter Network members raise their productivity while mitigating placement risk.

Successful recruiters know that their long term success means focusing on 'quality of hire' for their clients

HireAbility, a leader in integrated recruiting software and services, announces its partnership with SkillSurvey, the leading provider of intelligent web-based reference checking solutions. The two firms will market their solutions jointly to third-party recruiters and corporate recruiters, to help them make more placements and ensure their candidates have the skills required to succeed.

SkillSurvey saves time for recruiters and for candidates' references, by streamlining the process with online web forms for entering reference contacts, sending emails with links to specific questions to those contacts, and tracking and evaluating responses. Recruiters or the candidates themselves enter the reference information, and SkillSurvey takes care of the rest of the task. Building this relationship with HireAbility's web-based Recruiter Network by offering its members a special introductory offer as well as preferred pricing will benefit both companies.

HireAbility leverages the power of the Internet by bringing recruiters together in its Recruiter Network and providing them with valuable tools and services all to drive successful new hires. Network members share access to job requisitions and candidates in an effort to increase their earned recruiting fees and serve their clients more efficiently. HireAbility helps its members increase their effectiveness - its recent partnership with SkillSurvey is one example. Like SkillSurvey, many of these tools are available to members at special prices for bundled packages, in addition to the Recruiter Network and web-based applicant tracking tools that are included in the basic membership.    

The SkillSurvey solution is more efficient, effective, and economical than phone-based reference checks. Instead of spending time phoning references, only to receive little or no valuable information, recruiters can send a link to an online form for the reference to complete. This enables recruiters to focus more time on tasks like sourcing candidates and closing business. Using SkillSurvey saves recruiters 30 to 60 minutes per candidate on reference checking. This productivity increase can be substantial, while increasing the quality of information gathered from references. The service also enables recruiters to reach more references per candidate, thereby building a valuable data asset for future recruiting purposes where appropriate. Recruiters can remain confident that a thorough reference check is being conducted, via a proven process. By harnessing the reach and ubiquity of the Internet, SkillSurvey

delivers complete and consistent reference checks, quickly and accurately.

Craig Silverman, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for HireAbility, commented, "We continue to foster relationships with companies that provide our members with the tools they need for successful recruiting. SkillSurvey's services and technology can expedite the success of our members, so partnering with them is a natural fit."

"Successful recruiters know that their long term success means focusing on 'quality of hire' for their clients," said Jim Ray, Vice President of Business Development at SkillSurvey. "Recruiters in the HireAbility Network now have access to a quick, reliable, and accurate solution to help ensure that their candidates can deliver value on the job, and that their clients keep them on the preferred provider list."
