SAN FRANCISCO, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Talent Sonar is the new name for the only comprehensive hiring platform that empowers companies to make great, data-driven decisions throughout the hiring process, uniting the best technology of what was Unitive into a first of its kind "values-based" hiring platform.
Talent Sonar uses a values-based hiring approach, helping companies identify the key capacities candidates need to thrive in their unique corporate environment. By operationalizing 21st century talent acquisition best practices, Talent Sonar structures the entire hiring process from specifying the skills and values required for a job to conducting the final interview, ensuring that companies emphasize values at each step of the process.
"Many companies are trying to hire based on 'fit,'" said Talent Sonar CEO and Founder Laura Mather. "Unfortunately, this too often means companies hire based on superficial factors, instead of on the core values that really predict success. This change underscores our commitment to helping every company in every sector find the right talent, and the right fit, every time they hire."
For companies looking to be competitive in today's crowded global market, eliminating bad hires and building strong teams is more essential than ever before. Studies show that homogeneous teams are less efficient, creative, and successful than their more diverse counterparts. Talent Sonar's values-based approach allows companies to build diverse, effective teams while still aligning their entire organization around the core values that matter most.
Do you want to learn about hiring for your values? One way is to join us at our next webinar, "AI for Better Hiring" on Thursday May 18th at 12pm PDT.
