SkillSurvey, Inc. today announced a multi-suite deal with Sempra Energy who licensed both the SkillSurvey Pre-Hire 360® and its Passive Candidate Compiler™ for enterprise recruitment and sourcing solutions.
The energy corporation intends to use SkillSurvey to improve quality of hire, increase operational efficiency, and grow their talent network of passive candidates.
Located in San Diego CA., Sempra Energy is a Fortune 500 energy services company with revenues of more than $11 billion. Their California utilities, San Diego Gas & Electric Co. and Southern California Gas Co., serve more than 20 million consumers. They employ over 13,000 individuals and are one of the largest and most respected employers in the San Diego area.
"Sempra is very pleased with the SkillSurvey solution. The web-based reference checks are timely, accurate, and very helpful in making informed hiring decisions. It's great having one of the '2007 Top HR Product s of the Year' in our recruiting repertoire," said Bob Duffield, HR Business Partner, Sempra Energy.
Once implemented, SkillSurvey's online Pre-Hire 360® reference checking solution will enable Sempra recruiters to reduce the days to fill open positions while at the same time improve the quality of candidates who are presented to their hiring managers. Other benefits will include improved legal defensibility and compliance, due to a standardized, consistent and fair process that stores all feedback gathered from references.
