2020 has cast a glaring light on the racial and socioeconomic inequalities running rampant within our communities. The COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world and our nation, has disproportionately affected African Americans and People of Color, who – due to gross economic disparities – make up the largest percentage of essential workers. This has pulled back the curtain on the realities of systemic racism and the persecution of the Black community, with an intensified spotlight on police brutality, and the growing Black Lives Matter movement across the country and globe demanding meaningful change.
We’re very pleased to be officially announcing our partnership today with Beamery. As a leading vendor in talent engagement and candidate relationship management (CRM), Beamery’s functionality is a logical complement to Entelo’s strength in candidate sourcing and recruiting automation. The combined Entelo-Beamery solution will enable joint customers to source, engage and nurture candidates at every stage of the recruitment funnel.
As of today, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect. I, along with our privacy team, have been working diligently to ensure that Entelo meets and exceeds these requirements.
Up until now, determining candidate fit meant one thing, detective work. Recruiters are drowning in a sea of open tabs in attempts to unearth a comprehensive view of candidate information. A resume only provides preliminary information, which then sends recruiters down various rabbit holes as they research the validity of qualifications, determine titles and verify claims. Simply, recruiters need to know more and today, sourcing entails knowing everything about a candidate, and that includes company research on their current organization, how much they’re likely to make and the goings on at their current employer.
Having a diverse and an inclusive company is a critical component of what makes Entelo thrive, and we’re always thinking of new ways to encourage diverse perspectives and a company dynamic that represents us all. New innovations and shifts happen in the tech landscape all the time, and it’s time to embrace new and much needed approaches to hiring.
Here at Entelo, we put a premium on data privacy and data security. As organizations worldwide prepare for increased regulation around data privacy and protection, we are proud to announce that Entelo is now EU-U.S. Privacy Shield-Certified via self-certification and well on our way to GDPR compliance.
Now that Entelo is certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, we will continue our long-standing commitment to maintaining adequate safeguards and controls around personal data so that corporations large and small know that they are doing business with a trusted organization.
