Companies are recruiting for a new breed of ethical software company, report says
- by admin
Companies are increasingly seeking to use software to automate their hiring and firing processes.
That’s the case with lawn company Software, which offers software that automatically identifies candidates based on their online profiles and automatically assigns them to jobs that pay more than $50,000 per year.
The company has already signed up about 40,000 new employees.
The hiring boom, which has spurred an industry boom, comes as the tech industry continues to grow at a rapid pace.
But with the hiring of more people as the number of jobs available continues to climb, it’s possible that the companies that have already jumped in on the market will see an even bigger bump in hiring, according to a new report from research firm Gartner.
“There’s an explosion in new opportunities in the tech space, so it’s going to be an even more intense period of hiring for those new entrants,” said Michael W. Ruhl, a partner at Gartners.
The report also noted that hiring is expected to accelerate.
“We expect the number to continue to grow, with the number for companies hiring and the number who have already applied for a job to grow substantially,” Ruht said.
Companies that have been testing the waters for a software hiring program say that while they may not see a surge in hiring from existing candidates, they may see an uptick in hiring if the software company starts offering the software to existing employees.
Software is an example of a software company that has become an ethical leader in hiring.
The software company has hired more than 10,000 people to help with its hiring process.
It’s a big change from traditional recruiting companies, which tend to hire a large pool of candidates.
Software has been able to attract new employees because of the company’s software-based hiring platform.
It automatically assigns candidates to jobs based on job description and salary information from the company website.
“The software company hiring program is one of the first software-enabled recruitment services we’ve ever seen, and it is also the most scalable software-driven recruiting solution we’ve seen,” said Richard L. Tamburro, a senior analyst at Gertner.
The program is open to employees of software companies in the U.S., Canada, the U-K., Australia and New Zealand.
Rushing into hiring for a role is the same as rushing into hiring into a job, said Scott C. Jones, founder of the online recruiting platform Upwork.
“When you rush into a position, you might be tempted to give up your day job or give up something that you like doing,” Jones said.
“That’s fine, but you should be aware that you’re not going to get the benefits of being a part of a team.”
Software also has been doing some pilot testing with its new hiring program.
“It’s something we’re going to take a look at with the full-stack hiring model in the near future,” said Rob O’Brien, founder and CEO of software recruitment company Upwork, which provides online platforms for companies to connect candidates and job candidates.
Upwork is also testing a hiring system that matches candidates based upon a series of criteria such as age, education, experience and a number of other attributes.
The Upwork pilot testing project, called The Best of Both Worlds, was recently funded by the Microsoft Ventures Fund.
Software said that its pilot testing of its hiring system is part of an ongoing program called “B2B Recruit.”
The program will be rolled out to other companies, the company said.
A lot of companies are going to see a boost in hiring with a software-powered hiring process, said David A. Balsillie, an analyst at research firm Technalysis.
“If a company is trying to find an additional hiring pool for new hires, the software hiring model is going to work,” Balsillo said.
