AUSTIN, Texas, January 26, 2021: Today, WillHire announced that it is the first in the market to provide a fully integrated solution with Glider AI that will transform how talent is curated for new roles. WillHire’s class-leading, direct sourcing and talent pool solution, and Glider AI’s best-of-breed assessment and screening platform are now optimized to work seamlessly together.
The two companies have collaborated closely together to link their solutions, enabling enterprise contingent hiring teams to quickly fill critical job vacancies with quality candidates. This integration assures a streamlined experience for hiring managers so they can instantly evaluate a candidate’s skill set against a role.
Our solution will provide the much-needed curation the market has been missing. This will improve time-to-hire by concentrating efforts on assessing and validating candidate quality. As a result, there will be less ramp-up time and the burden will be taken off the hiring manager to vet and qualify candidates. This means companies and candidates find the right fit, right away.
“Contingent workers fill a critical need for organizations of all sizes and across all industries, now more than ever before,” WillHire CEO and Founder Praneeth Patlola said of the announcement. “It’s imperative that companies transform candidate curation processes so they quickly fill vital roles with the highest-skilled candidates while reducing burdens on hiring teams. A robust talent curation process is essential to build and grow a vetted private talent pool, which is key for any direct sourcing program.”
In today’s market, speed-to-hire is more important than it’s ever been. Not only does it directly impact a company’s bottom line through costly project delays, but you’ll also miss out on high-quality, in-demand candidates if you don’t act fast. According to SHRM, the average time-to-fill is 41 days. This challenge is even greater for contingent roles with the need to fill roles faster. While this varies among industries, any requisite change to improve this is critical.
“WillHire and Glider AI significantly improves time-to-fill by providing immediate, proven skills assessments and credential validation directly to hiring managers, so they know that a given candidate has the requisite skills to perform the job. It’s fast, effective, and will elevate the hiring process immediately” says Satish Kumar, CEO and Co-Founder of Glider AI.
As part of the talent curation process, WillHire platform users access and assign tests from Gilder’s robust assessment library or even build a new customized assessment for any candidate. Upon completion of the test, the results are automatically published and accessible within WillHire, which then are also made available in VMS for the hiring manager to view.
WillHire and Glider will be presenting on the importance of transforming talent curation at the World Staffing Summit on January 28th, 2021.
WillHire is a direct sourcing and talent pool solution enabling enterprises to attract, curate, and engage contingent talent by leveraging their employer brand.
