-finding the best candidates convenient for human resource professionals, business heads and entrepreneurs looking to hire people.
BrighterMonday’s CEO, Mili Rughani said recruiting talent is an arduous and expensive task for employers as it involves a lot of administrative filtering, combined with the uncertainty around getting the wrong candidate for the role.
She said as a result, many growing organizations struggle with identifying people who would take their business to the next level. “With more job seekers coming into the market, demand for jobs is higher than ever, therefore, employers receive hundreds of applications for a vacancy and have to sort through heaps of CVs and profiles to find candidates that best match what they require for the role,” Rughani said.
She explained that the Best Match product uses a mix of human resources experts and automated matching algorithm to sort and rank candidates that best match the criteria an employer is looking for.
“The mix is extremely critical as it ensures that science and experience are combined effectively to ensure that an employer gets the very best out of the candidates that have applied for the role,” she added.
Employers who use the Best Match product will get up to 10 best matches within the first seven days of their job posting going live which saves them much time and for those that are not too tech-savvy, ensure that they can get access to the best matching candidates without too much effort.
“In addition to this, employers get access to over one million candidates in the BrighterMonday Tanzania candidate database, 80 percent who are fully profiled and have undergone behavioural tests,” Rughani added.
The Future of Jobs 2018 Report courtesy of the World Economic Forum cited that many employers’ retraining and upskilling efforts remained focused on a narrow set of current highly-skilled, highly-valued employees.
However, in order to truly rise to the challenge of formulating a winning workforce strategy, businesses were challenged to recognize the human capital investment as an asset rather than a liability, which means hiring the best fit.
