Wayne, PA (PRWEB) July 25, 2010
SkillSurvey, Inc. has announced that Freedom from Hunger is a new subscriber to the company’s suite of recruitment solutions: Pre-Hire 360® and the Passive Candidate Compiler™. They join a growing number of other non-profit organizations in SkillSurvey’s family of clients.
Established in 1946 as a non-profit organization, Freedom from Hunger works with partners in 17 countries to fight hunger through innovative, self-help programs. Their value-added microfinance programs serve over two million families in some of the poorest countries on earth.
“Each hire that we make has a far-reaching impact on the success of our programs and on our ability to accomplish our mission,” explains Holly Bower, manager of Human Resources at Freedom from Hunger. “In other words, every hire has to be right. We’ve already seen how the candid feedback from Pre-Hire 360® influences our selection in positive ways. With the Candidate Comparison Report, a feature of Pre-Hire 360®, we’ve been able to look across our top candidates and narrow our choices meaningfully.”
“No organization can absorb poor hiring decisions without it affecting productivity,” comments Ray Bixler, CEO of SkillSurvey. “But, the need to avoid hiring candidates with hidden developmental needs is particularly critical in non-profit organizations where resources are ultra constrained. The large contingent of non-profits that use our service is indicative of the dollar-and-cents value it delivers.”
SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360® software is an automated mechanism for references to rate candidates on the very behaviors and skills that are associated with success in a given job. The behaviorally-based assessments reveal insights into strengths and developmental needs that may not surface in traditional reference checks, or even during candidate interviews. Results can be compared across candidates to help with the interview process and selection decision.
The Passive Candidate Compiler™ is a database of references who would like to be kept informed of future openings. It grows exponentially as references opt in, and is an easy and productive way for employers to build a network of “warm” leads—prospects who will welcome further contact.
SkillSurvey is the inventor and leading provider of Web 2.0 reference assessment solutions that increase quality of hire and improve recruiting efficiency. Using SkillSurvey, organizations improve the quantity and quality of information they collect regarding a candidate’s past work performance, providing better information to recruiters and hiring managers as they make decisions on new hires. SkillSurvey also significantly reduces time and money spent on reference checking. This breakthrough, patent-pending approach to reference assessments is based on over 25 years of research in job competency modeling. More information is available at http://www.skillsurvey.com.
