Wayne, PA. (PRWEB) February 10, 2010
SkillSurvey, Inc., the leading provider of Web 2.0 reference assessment solutions, has signed yet another premier healthcare organization to its client roster; Scottsdale Healthcare. By subscribing to SkillSurvey’s recruitment solutions, the health system signals its ongoing commitment to excellence.
Scottsdale Healthcare is based in Scottsdale, Ariz., and serves the northeast Phoenix metropolitan area and beyond. The nonprofit health system is the city’s largest employer with some 6,500 staff at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center, Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Medical Center, Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital, Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center and additional outpatient facilities. It is recognized for its leadership in medical innovation and as a best place to work.
The health system will use SkillSurvey’s companion products - Pre-Hire 360® and the Passive Candidate Compiler™ - to make more informed hiring decisions and to adopt its own form of networking to broaden its talent pool. Pre-Hire 360® gathers candid feedback from a candidate’s supervisors, subordinates, and peers on the applicant’s performance, behaviors, and attitudes as observed over time. The Passive Candidate Compiler™ keeps track of people who’ve served as references, and are interested in hearing of suitable positions for themselves. Once references “opt in” to the database, companies can develop a relationship with them and thereby have an enormous head start when sourcing for open positions.
“I’m very excited about the ability to get more job related references in order to improve the cultural and competency fit of our candidates,” notes Judie Goe, Director of Talent Acquisition and Development at Scottsdale Healthcare.
Ray Bixler, CEO of SkillSurvey, emphasizes the advantage that both Pre-Hire 360® and the Passive Candidate Compiler™ bring, no matter what the current status of job market. “In ‘employer markets’ when qualified candidates are plentiful, our web-based solutions help organizations identify the best talent more quickly and effectively,” he contends. “And our products help companies lay the groundwork for thriving when ‘employee markets’ will come back and there won’t be enough qualified candidates to go around. Using our software, companies can develop relationships with thousands of people who are either themselves prospects or sources who can name other prospects.”
SkillSurvey serves hundreds of clients representing more than half a million candidates or reference providers in over 100 countries. In the last year alone, over 300,000 professionals experienced SkillSurvey Pre-Hire 360®. In addition, the SkillSurvey Passive Candidate Compiler™ has over 500,000 active names within the community for clients to use for proactive sourcing of candidates.
