This concept has been in the planning stages for months
Livonia, Mich. (PRWEB) July 14, 2009
UnitedWeWork.org, a free recruitment service available to employers of all sizes and workers of all levels and skills, was launched today. As U.S. unemployment rates near an all-time high, unemployed workers need quick and efficient ways to match their skills with open job opportunities. UnitedWeWork.org will facilitate the connection between job seekers and employers. Large organizations, including 7-Eleven, ADP, Allstate, AT&T, Hewitt Associates, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Office Depot, Sears Holdings, and Starbucks have partnered with AllianceQ to kick-off this effort.
UnitedWeWork.org was developed by AllianceQ, a collaboration of industry-leading Fortune 500 companies that attract millions of job candidates each year. The objective of the Alliance is to help job candidates connect with other employers (especially pertinent in these tough times) and to drive down their future recruiting costs. Through AllianceQ, these companies share job candidates they cannot hire, giving each member access to more talent and giving job candidates access to many more precisely matched opportunities with other employers.
Through UnitedWeWork.org, U.S. employers will be able to access a candidate database of people ranging across all experience levels and skill sets. Companies will have free access to the database for the remainder of 2009. Businesses with fewer than 100 employees will have free access through July 2010.
Stephen A. Lowisz, CEO of Qualigence, the largest recruitment research firm in the U.S. that is headquartered in Livonia, MI, is the Chairman for AllianceQ. "This concept has been in the planning stages for months" comments Lowisz. "The economy needs to improve and one way to improve it is to get people back to work. We developed UnitedWeWork.org to be instrumental in accomplishing this."
Companies that join UnitedWeWork.org will have access to advanced matching technologies to generate a "shortlist" of qualified, skilled and interested job seekers that are matched based on skills, competencies and work preferences. Candidates are re-evaluated daily as new jobs are posted. "In this economy we are seeing far more job seekers and far fewer jobs--to the point where some job boards have actually taken to charging job seekers to help them find work" said Phil Haynes, Director of AllianceQ. "UnitedWeWork.org is the only significant offering to allow companies to save on job posting, search and recruitment fees, as well as give all job seekers an equal chance to be found and hired." The average cost to post an open position, identify the appropriate candidate and fill the position is approximately $10,000. UnitedWeWork.org will connect
employers with job seekers with no recruiting, job posting or advertising fees.
"As a founding member of AllianceQ, ADP is proud to support the United We Work initiative. This alliance creates access to a no cost, easy-to-use community that connects candidates and companies," said Benito Cachinero, Corporate Vice President of Human Resources for ADP, Inc. one of the world's leading providers of business outsourcing solutions to over 585,000 clients.
