Recruitment and HR Solution Startups

The recruitment model that has been used for years is out of date.
In the era of 4G, one-click buying, and...uh...Uber, sending your CV to a recruitment agency and then sitting about for weeks on end waiting for a phone call or an invite to a training day is far too slow and inadequate. And once you’re in a job, or in the crosshairs for one, employers want to be sure that you’re a good fit. You both want something more hands-on, more streamlined, and more personal.

A new breed of recruitment and HR solutions has stepped up to fill this role. Here are some Recruitment and HR Solution Startups aiming to, or currently, disrupting the recruitment model...


HuntedHunted

Hunted is a Recruitment Industry platform dedicated to helping recruitment professionals find a job they love and for recruitment companies to find and hire talent. As well as
the usual stuff, Hunted allows the job seeker to take a look inside the business and get a good feel for it. They can see photos of the offices, the team, and learn about the people they would be working with. Additionally, they will stay anonymous when making enquiries with hiring managers - important parts of their profile will be visible to the manager so that they can give a better idea of whether they might be a good fit, but they choose when to reveal their identity.  

Saberr

Saberr isn’t a recruitment platform, but rather an HR tool to determine whether potential hires, as well as existing employees, will work well within a specific team. It surveys these people, concentrating not on simple interests but on things like behaviours, values and culture, and then applies an algorithm that will break down its findings into a compatibility score of 0-100 (plus details, of course) for each person, and for the team as a whole. In this way, the employer should be able to put together teams that will deliver higher performance.

Jobbio 

One of our previous Startups of the Week, Jobbio cuts out the middleman by giving recruiters and job seekers an easy-to-use platform to connect directly with each other. Jobbio is more interested in job seekers showing who they are via a bio on their profile page, including images, video, blogs, etc., rather than the usual boring CVs. This gives the job seeker an opportunity to paint a clearer picture of themselves than the constraints of a CV allow. Jobbio is free for job seekers and recruiters only pay a fee when they want to connect with a potential new hire, making it more accessible and attractive.

Proversity

Proversity is more employer-oriented than other solutions, as it provides, in the words of one of the co-founders, ‘try before you buy with candidates’. Candidates are given bespoke learning programmes, with the option of assessments, allowing the employer to determine the best talent.

Hired

Hired is perhaps for a more casual job seeker in that they do not actively search for jobs through the site. Rather, they build their profile and let businesses looking for new hires contact them. Although this might not be ideal for the go-getters who can’t sit still, the idea is to stop job seeking from being a full-time job. There are other benefits to using Hired as a freelancer, such as handing over responsibility for paperwork (tax, contracts, etc.) to them, letting them handle payroll, and receiving a $1000 hiring bonus for completing 500 hours at a new job.

Debut

The people who find it most difficult to find a job are those close to claiming their pension and those fresh out of school or higher education. Debut is aimed solely at the latter, with a mobile app (because it’s hip and down with the kids, like us) that connects students with graduate schemes, internships, and job opportunities, as well as providing plenty of tips, tricks, and other important information for the job hunt, interview process, etc. As with other solutions, the student will create a profile that can be searched by potential employers, and can search through job listings themselves. The most unique thing about Debut is that it includes employer-sponsored games through which the player can win prizes as well as the opportunity to get fast-tracked to internships and the interview stage.

Quantize

Quantize will, once it graduates from seed-funding and really gets going, apply machine learning to CVs in order to predict future success. It will identify soft and hard skills and match them to top performing employees already within a business. Quantize will apply its algorithm to a business’s performance data and applicant tracking system to score and prioritise applicants, making it simpler and quicker for an employer to find the best candidates for their open positions.

Quantize

Inploi

Inploi is currently focused on the London area and on the hospitality industry, with plans to expand into others. As with other solutions, Inploi allows engagement between job seekers and employers, and includes a built-in messaging system. For short- and part-time employees, Inploi even integrates a payment platform to keep things simple for both the employee and the employer.
