Your job specs are a list of demands to the winning side in the 'War for Talent.'
While there is technology that can help you write more compelling job descriptions and adverts, you are still talking to groups rather than listening to people. Whole Village Hiring™ uses adaptive intelligence to give every talent the optimised experience most likely to encourage them to take part.
“The ability to review and learn about a new company in a place and at a pace that suited me enabled me to investigate how much of a match there was, without having to apply to find out. By being able to see the environment, new colleagues, the people behind the hire and how much the business supported women in technology, it took away much of the risk of looking at a new role”
Whole Village Hiring™ is optimised for mobile & video, always for talent to see & hear not read.
What we have learned works best from trials in England, Scotland, Poland, Ireland, India & USA, is to focus on the fact that all people have 'their life.' Engaging talent about a new job without addressing how it fits into their life is no longer going to work. Understanding each talent's context matters.
"A platform that showed me a career opportunity in a country I had never thought about living in, is something I have never experienced before. A particularly useful aspect, were insights not only useful to me but also my family. The ability to share the engagement with all around my dinner table before even joining the process enabled us to collectively sign up to major life change and family adventure."
So you are starting to use data to inform your key hiring messages? Is your data set flawed?
If you are looking at the bias on the assessment of talent that has applied, you have already missed the need to understand who may have looked in the window and moved on. When it comes to greater DEI in hiring, if your starting point is low, it never gets higher as you progress.
"There are lots of false promises in hiring technology. The truth is, if you do not address the bias in your engagement, assessment is too late. If you are encouraging a wider range of talent to apply, applying to them is more proactive. 'Bias free' in any tech ignores the truth that all algorithms are opinions manifest in code. Whole Village Hiring™ deploys a client’s culture and learns from talent mitigating bias, you cannot remove it. "
- Our Value
Our Whole Village Hiring™ platform uses unique global insights to create real results that cannot be delivered elsewhere.
Our platform has learned from real and truly diverse talent what works. Across the globe we have deployed insights on client companies that reflected their culture to talent. We have then consistently learned from their response. Engagement that is always learning, widens the gate to understand how to hire in a way that improves your DEI post pandemic. The answer lies in listening to talent. The most recent insights learned are in relation to female IT talent in financial services from a trial with a Fortune 250 in Ireland's South East. Comparing similar male to female talents, female talent was found to be:
● 1000% more likely to share an approach with friends & family ● 500% longer reviewing before initiating an interest to progress● 60% + extra time spent reviewing work life integration ● 40% more impacted by peers & reports than a C level leader
For outbound hiring.
Our platform supports better proactive outbound hiring to compliment inbound talent.
