NEW YORK, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS) is announcing the development of WOS Digital, a new platform to help companies better attract diverse, early career talent. This one-of-a-kind online talent network is designed to help hiring teams transform their businesses with quality career candidates, making it easier and faster than ever to connect companies to potential employees.
Through WOS Digital, hiring managers will be able to browse Zenith, a custom database of thousands of ready-to-work professionals who reflect diverse communities and customers. Clients can also read through sample resumes including those of individuals suited for high-demand roles in information technology, business and finance. WOS will utilize Zenith to design and develop custom programs for companies' specific workforce goals.
As experts in building talent pipelines, WOS works with companies throughout the hiring process, from discovering potential talent to providing hands-on support services after new staff has been hired. Today, companies looking to hire quality, diverse employees can visit the WOS Digital portal and inform WOS staff of their hiring needs.
WOS Digital will advance Workforce Opportunity Services' unique process of screening, supporting, training and mentoring ready-to-work veterans and underserved jobseekers. After matching businesses with job candidates from these backgrounds, the organization assumes the upfront costs of recruitment, placement and benefits, and keeps employees on their payroll until (and if) companies choose to bring them on to their permanent workforce.
Over the years, WOS has helped companies like Johnson & Johnson, Prudential and General Electric transform their staff to reflect the diverse communities and customers they serve. They've changed the lives of thousands of early career professionals by helping them cultivate their talents.
"We are excited to expand our services to meet the growing needs for diverse and talented workforces. WOS Digital is positioned to provide alternative talent sourcing required by an evolving global digital economy," says Dr. Art Langer, Founder and Chairman of WOS.
