San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Ascendify, a new talent community for the social enterprise, today announced that Human Resource Executive® magazine has named its Talent Acquisition Platform one of the 2012 Top HR Products of the Year. The highly coveted award will be presented to Ascendify on October 8th, during the 15th Annual HR Technology® Conference in Chicago, IL.
“We’re honored to be recognized by such a well-respected industry publication,” says Matt Hendrickson, Ascendify’s Founder & CEO. “This award reflects our team’s passion and dedication to delivering innovative solutions that forever improve the way today’s top employers connect with top talent.”
The war for talent is on, and employers need better ways to attract the best talent. Studies show that most organizations are missing out on 90% of the candidates that visit their own career website. Only one out of ten job seekers applies for a job. Most are turned away by the complicated application process and impersonal approach. Ascendify’s Talent Acquisition Platform helps corporations build relationships with the other nine, including passive candidates and others that are connected through current employees’ social networks.
Ascendify launched its Talent Acquisition Platform in June of this year, at the SHRM Annual Conference in Atlanta.
“Human Resource Executive® has been evaluating HR products and conducting this competition for 24 years," explained David Shadovitz, editor of Human Resource Executive. "Our goal has always been to identify products and services that clearly offer value to the HR community while demonstrating innovation."
“We’re thrilled to see such positive support from the industry so far – and this is only the beginning for Ascendify. We’re especially proud of our patent-pending feature, Glance Screening™ which takes the cumbersome resume reviewing task, and culls it down to a 1-second glance of a candidates’ key credentials, paired with a unique score for each candidate,” explained Hendrickson.
Ascendify improves the way the social enterprise connects with top talent. Ascendify transforms a corporate career site into an active, engaging talent community that leverages social networks to connect employers with candidates. Unlike any other HR solution, Ascendify builds enterprise talent communities so employers and recruiters establish personal relationships directly with candidates – effectively building a private social network at their corporate website.
