San Francisco, CA, September 10, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Ascendify, a new talent acquisition platform for the social enterprise, has announced participation in TechCrunch Disrupt SF Startup Alley on Monday, September 10, 2012. Ascendify will preview new features of its Talent Acquisition platform, centered on sourcing higher quality talent and screening candidates more efficiently.
Ascendify’s Talent Acquisition platform transforms a corporate career portal into an active, engaging talent community that helps enterprise HR departments dramatically increase the quality of new hires, and reduce recruiting costs.
“The war for talent is on, and employers need a better way to attract top talent,” says Matt Hendrickson, Founder & CEO. “What’s astounding is that most organizations are missing out on 90% of the candidates that visit their career website today. Job seekers are repelled by the complicated application process and impersonal approach. At Ascendify, we’ve built some really innovative tools to help corporations better engage with candidates, and we’re excited to show them to the TechCrunch community at Disrupt.”
One of the new screening features includes: a patent-pending Glance Screening™ view of candidates in a baseball trading card lineup, which allows employers to quickly review key credentials and make decisions based on a unique score.
Ascendify makes it faster and more efficient for enterprise companies to connect with future talent. Ascendify transforms a corporate career site into an engaging talent community that leverages social networks to connect employers with candidates. Unlike any other HR solution, Ascendify builds enterprise communities so employers and recruiters establish personal relationships directly with candidates – effectively building a talent pool at their own site.
