SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2014
Gild, which powers the way companies find, engage and evaluate tech talent with data and intelligence, today launched The Gild Platform, the first end-to-end intelligent hiring platform designed to help companies across all functions and industries hire faster than their competitors. The new Gild Platform uniquely brings together intelligence, automation and collaboration so that companies can make better hiring decisions, more efficiently.
“We founded Gild because we knew hiring was broken and we wanted to fix it. We knew there had to be a better way,” said Gild CEO Sheeroy Desai. “The Gild Platform extends our proven and patented science and technology to seamlessly connect hiring teams with recruiters and ultimately, qualified candidates. We are helping companies hire the right people, faster, and making the hiring process more streamlined and effective no matter the industry or function.”
The Gild Platform is extensive in scope covering sourcing, passive candidate management via a CRM, applicant tracking, job postings and distribution, career site hosting, automated interview scheduling with integrated video interviewing, along with integrated, smart recommendation systems to help companies make faster and better decisions on candidates - all on one comprehensive platform. This eliminates the need for separate systems and seamlessly integrates data between these applications. No other recruiting solution provides the breadth of services offered by The Gild Platform.
The Gild Platform is also the first solution in the industry to be launched with a publicly published and open API. This enables developers and other software companies to develop and release third-party applications, which will seamlessly integrate with all other applications on the platform.
“Winning today requires superior talent and to recruit top talent, companies need an edge. Gild provides this edge and offers insights into talent and fit by applying proprietary technology and science to the entire hiring process,” said Steve Cadigan, former VP of Talent at LinkedIn and Founder of Cadigan Talent Ventures. “I am proud to be on the Gild team because what they are doing is truly revolutionary. No one else has been able to create a single, seamless hiring platform that not only connects everyone involved in the hiring process but provides intelligent automation to eliminate the guesswork.”
"In my role as an advisor I see and evaluate hundreds of new hiring solutions each year and I can sincerely say, I have never seen anything as comprehensive or market-changing as the new Gild Platform,” said Austin Cooke, Gild Advisor and former Vice President, Human Resources & Talent Acquisition, Vistaprint. “The faster and bigger a company grows, the greater the need to innovate and, not surprisingly, the greater the pressure to find the right talent. With The Gild Platform traditional recruiting pain points are eliminated allowing companies to find the right talent faster. ”
The New Gild Platform
The new Gild Platform is a customizable, complete intelligent hiring solution that provides the broadest range of integrated applications on the market.
Intelligence: Using Gild’s patented algorithms, the platform makes smart recommendations for recruiters, helping them identify and connect with the right professionals at the right time. The Gild Platform seamlessly integrates data and workflow. So, for example, information on a candidate in the CRM is automatically updated and Gild’s Spotlight feature informs recruiters when a passive candidate in their pipeline is likely to be looking for a new job.
Automation: The Gild Platform automates the many manual tasks recruiters and hiring coordinators perform today - from manual data entry, to interview scheduling, to candidate and task tracking and more. For example, Gild’s Jobs application helps recruiters quickly post targeted job descriptions directed to specific candidate profiles – maximizing views – similar to how Google helps marketers write better ads.
Collaboration: The Gild Platform truly enables collaboration between recruiters and hiring managers through an easy to use, mobile enabled user interface and with a unique collaboration and communication system that eliminates the need for email.
“TripAdvisor continues to grow quickly, which is great, but it also means we are on the constant hunt for top talent,” said Lori Russo, Head of Global Talent Acquisition, TripAdvisor. "Gild Source has been a wonderful tool to help us identify and evaluate talent from around the world. Gild's new intelligent hiring platform will now help us hire the right people from all functions, faster."
The new Gild Platform will be available in early 2015. The platform is customizable to meet complete and specific hiring needs of companies across all industries. Please consult Gild direct at http://www.gild.com for more information and a demo.
