-Online reference-checking solution further streamlines onboarding processes within the Talent Platform-
MATAWAN, N.J. (December 17, 2012) – iCIMS, a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, today announced a new partnership with SkillSurvey®, Inc., a leading provider of behavioral, web-based reference-checking software. The partnership will allow mutual customers of iCIMS and SkillSurvey to leverage the solutions through a seamless web services connection.
“We are very excited to team up with an organization that displays the same passion and drive as we do within the HR market space,” said Ray Bixler, President and CEO of SkillSurvey. “Both SkillSurvey and iCIMS are committed to helping clients of various industries, particularly healthcare, improve their quality-of-hire, which makes for a perfect pairing between our organizations.”
SkillSurvey’s core product, Pre-Hire 360®, gathers input from a job applicant’s references by using behaviorally-based surveys delivered over an electronic platform. SkillSurvey’s 270+ job-specific surveys, available in five languages, help identify a candidate’s strengths and developmental needs based on candid reference feedback. Confidential information from managers, peers, subordinates, and business partners provides a multi-dimensional view of the candidate’s past performance. The system overcomes the usual reticence of former employers to participate, because they are released from legal liability and their feedback is confidential.
The new partnership gives mutual customers the ability to further automate the full pre-hire lifecycle. The iCIMS Talent Platform, when paired with SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360, allows HR professionals to manage sourcing, recruiting, assessments, reference-checking, and onboarding all within a tightly integrated web-based application. The end result is time and money saved, on top of enlisting the help of two organizations known for their commitment to customer service.
“SkillSurvey offers a progressive employee reference-checking solution that we are looking forward to delivering to our clients,” said Susan Vitale, Chief Marketing Officer, iCIMS. “We’ve always had a great experience working alongside SkillSurvey and are enthusiastic about formalizing the relationship and delivering an integrated solution of two best-of-breed technologies to our clients. SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360 will give our clients a powerful addition to their onboarding capabilities that will assist them in choosing the ideal candidate for any given position,” Vitale concluded.
