While it’s been a bit quieter on the Entelo blog as of late, we’ve been working on something BIG behind the scenes and we’re excited to finally be able to share the news with you.
Announced just this morning, Entelo has acquired ConveyIQ, the leading candidate engagement platform for screening, interviewing, and hiring top talent. This is a giant leap forward for the Entelo recruiting automation suite, making way for the creation of the most powerful – and only – end-to-end sourcing to hire recruitment platform. To fuel such an ambitious undertaking, Entelo has also secured a new round of venture funding.
The list of vendors in the HR tech space is only growing. At our last count, there were 56 vendors within the Recruiting Automation space alone, specializing in everything from interview scheduling, to chat bots and automated sourcing. With so many options to choose from, the power is now in buyers' hands to build a personalized end-to-end tech stack.
If our 2019 Guide To Recruiting & HR Events is any indication, at Entelo we get really excited about any opportunity to step outside the normal 9-5 and learn from industry leaders and peers. As an avid reader of the Entelo blog, we’re sure that you do too. Well, get your notebook and your reading-glasses-you-don’t-really-need-but-make-you-look-smart ready, because May is lining up to be a great one for professional development.
The reality of today’s talent market requires recruiters to reference over 13 sites to source just one candidate. That means that any given time, the average recruiter has over 13 tabs open, hopping between them to cross-reference and gather candidate information. Talk about Tab Overload!
As the Director of Talent, Diversity & Inclusion at DonorsChoose.org, Margie Cadet spends a lot of her time examining and eliminating opportunities for human bias within her team’s recruiting process.
Given the sheer amount of time recruiters spend sending off emails to prospective candidates, it’s surprising how few track key engagement metrics. According to the 2019 Recruiting Automation Trends Report, only 53% of recruiters track their email open rates and only 50% track click-through rates.
