Share Article

SkillSurvey®, Inc. announced today that with strong renewal rates and a significant growth in new customers, the company increased its 2013 second-quarter bookings by 50 percent over its second-quarter bookings in 2012.

Our Pre-Hire 360® solution has been shown to statistically predict involuntary turnover and future job performance of those hired.

Along with the bookings increase, the number of customers using its social talent platform grew to over 700 hospitals and long-term care organizations, and over 600 companies in many other industries, including retail, energy, education, finance, consumer goods and information technology.

SkillSurvey’s core product, Pre-Hire 360®, gathers input from a job applicant’s references by using behaviorally-based surveys delivered through enterprise software. The surveys aggregate input from managers, peers, subordinates and business partners to provide a multi-dimensional view of the candidate’s past performance that reveals their strengths and areas of development. Studies published recently in the International Journal of Selection and Assessment provide conclusive evidence that using SkillSurvey allows recruiters and hiring managers to make better hiring decisions.

“The continued year-over-year bookings increase is a testament to the value our social talent platform brings to the hiring process,” said Ray Bixler, president and chief executive officer of SkillSurvey. “Our Pre-Hire 360® solution has been shown to statistically predict involuntary turnover and future job performance of those hired. Organizations can feel confident that they are hiring only the best candidates.”

Customers of SkillSurvey also benefit from building a community of passive candidates with The Q®, a new talent portal and social network that allows organizations to source talent by turning references into candidates. When they join, references' profile information is automatically captured in The Q®, giving recruiters a way to stay in touch with references and approach them for positions in the future.
