UnifyWork announced the launch of its “workforce intelligence” (aka skills matching) platform targeting the Cleveland job market. We are seeing a numbing of matching platforms try to take hold in online recruiting. Few however have made any traction in terms of scale.
A matching tool doesn’t rely on resumes but rather assessments or entering skills. Sounds great on paper but you generally need economies of scale for it to become a worthwhile tool employers will want to buy.
Its patented skills-based technology powers local talent networks by coupling the market demand for skills development with equitable hiring to remove the barriers associated with the traditional labor market.
UnifyWork’s platform replaces the time-consuming resume and application process with a brief assessment that identifies job seeker skills and interests. The platform’s skills-based matching algorithm then presents select in-demand jobs – including detailed job descriptions and pay ranges – that align with the candidate’s unique abilities and preferences.
By leveraging UnifyWork to fill job openings, employers gain access to an untapped talent pool of prequalified candidates that will not find them on traditional job boards. The platform also masks candidate identities until a match between the employer and job seeker is made – minimizing bias in the hiring process.
UnifyWork is the fourth breakthrough technology company founded in Cleveland by local tech entrepreneur, Stephen McHale. With his deep experience in big data, machine learning, and leveraging supply chain workflow models, he and his team are determined to transform hiring for good.UnifyWork PR
