2020 has cast a glaring light on the disparities running rampant within our communities. While these systemic inequalities are no revelation to the communities victimized by them, for others in our society the last few months have been eye opening – leaving many asking how the year can be 2020 with seemingly little progress towards true equity.
It’s been an exciting past few months for Entelo, as we welcomed in a new CEO and completed an expansion of one of our most powerful integrations. Today, we add one more reason for celebration to the list – the appointment of our new VP of Customer Success, Andre Boulais.
At Entelo, we want to help our customers make the best decisions for their employees, candidates, families, and businesses. Our goal is to provide exceptional experiences for talent acquisition and we are here to help your hiring team remove obstacles they face during these uncertain times. Given the shift to teams working remotely and the challenge that poses to the interview process, we’ve decided to offer all existing and new Entelo customers without access to digital interviewing, free access to our digital interviewing solutions until June, 30th 2020.
Entelo is excited to sponsor the next Talent Board Candidate Experience Half-Day Workshop in San Francisco this Thursday, February 27th from 1-4pm.
As businesses work to plant themselves firmly in their given industry, strategic choices must be made to grow roots in a particular market. A company may have the best product in the industry, but without a strong workforce, it’s likely that company won’t succeed. With the right strategic planning, companies can maximize their workforce and deliver consistent results.
One of the most important things to consider when optimizing your workforce is the people that make up your team. By finding strong team members right out of the gate, the ability to hone that talent for your particular business will be easier, faster, and more effective. Once you have a great team, provide them with the tools they need for success, like software that is easy to use, but highly effective. Allow your employees flexibility in their work environment by using communication tools that are natural to them—encouraging a culture of open discussion in the workplace. These tools, in line with a positive working environment, will reduce workplace stress and maintain a healthy and productive workplace for your employees and company to thrive.
As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, there’s no better way to spend a winter evening than curled up by the fireplace with a good book. Why not take the opportunity to sharpen up your recruiting chops while you’re at it? Get your hot cocoa (or egg nog) ready, because we’ve put together the essential winter reading list for recruiters in 2019.
Cheers to recruiters! It’s your work day in and day out that brings the best talent to your organization – and the fresh ideas, perspectives, and backgrounds that reinvigorate the business. Yet, there will inevitably come a time, no matter how dedicated a professional you are, when communication barriers with a hiring manager keep you up at night thinking through the long list of job requirements, failed interviews, and hard-to-fill roles on their team.
It’s been a busy year for us here at Entelo, from hosting the inaugural Recruiting Automation Summit to bringing on 5 of the top 8 Fortune 500 companies as customers, and yet it’s hard to believe another yearend is quickly approaching. 2018 has been one of innovation and evolution for Entelo, with almost every month bringing new features and updates to the platform. To recap this year's progress and set the tone for what to expect in 2019, take a look at our year in review:
When we launched Entelo Envoy at the HR Technology Conference last year, our aim was to make sourcing job candidates as simple as possible. Since then, we’ve helped numerous companies put their sourcing on autopilot, and watched them use that saved time to bolster candidate experience programs, form stronger talent relationships and ultimately build amazing teams.
We’ve seen what works and what can be made even easier, so now we’re happy to introduce a new Envoy Input Form that is even simpler to use and makes sourcing candidates as effortless as posting a status update.
Traditional recruiting isn’t going to cut it anymore. Entelo customers and other recruiting automation experts know that in order to get ahead, employers must think outside the box when it comes to engaging top talent. Today we’re happy to share our latest resource to help recruiters get ahead of the competition and hire more efficiently.
The human brain is built for bias. To efficiently process a large amount of information quickly, the brain creates categories and ties personal associations and perceptions to those categories. This process happens subconsciously and usually without malintent.
Left unchecked, unconscious bias can have negative implications when it comes to the way companies hire. Even with the best intentions and the most experienced recruiters, unconscious bias can creep into the sourcing process, resulting in certain candidates gaining an advantage in the hiring process for the wrong reasons and thwarting opportunities for other candidates that may be the right fit for the job.
When initiating a sourcing project, what is the first thing recruiters do? Often the search begins with a long boolean string, jam packed with keywords. Recruiters start this way because it helps to identify potential prospects, however this approach is fundamentally flawed. Keyword searches only identify candidates that have added those keywords to their resumes and professional profiles themselves. Therefore, this system gives preferential treatment to individuals who feel comfortable listing additional keywords and thwarts opportunities for those that are more humble. In fact, men tend to have 16% more keywords on their resume compared to women for the same role and the same experience, according to Entelo data.
