SkillSurvey, the leading provider of hiring solutions that address critical points in the talent lifecycle, and the premier provider of online automated reference checking, today announced that new bookings for the first half of 2015 (ending June 30th) increased 75% percent over the same period in 2014. This powerful, double-digit growth demonstrates how SkillSurvey continues to address essential customer needs by delivering solutions to enhance talent selection and support better business outcomes.
“More and more customers recognize the value that SkillSurvey delivers by helping their organizations to improve their talent profile and hiring processes,” said Ray Bixler, SkillSurvey’s President and CEO. “Our innovative cloud-based solutions not only help employers make better and more informed data-driven hiring decisions – they also streamline hiring workflows and communications between applicants, references, and all those involved in the hiring process.”
More than 10,000 talent acquisition professionals actively use Pre-Hire 360® to streamline their hiring process and make more informed decisions for 80,000 candidates each month. Today, Pre-Hire 360 is used by more than 1,400 organizations of every type and size across a wide range of industries. Additionally, the company continues to maintain a stellar customer retention rate with more than 90% of customers renewing their relationship with SkillSurvey in the first half of 2015.
SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360 allows hiring managers and talent acquisition teams to obtain information related to a candidate’s past performance based on answers to job-specific survey questions provided by prior managers, co-workers and direct reports. Reference feedback reports are typically available in less than two days, usually with more than four references providing responses. There are more than 350 job-specific surveys in the Pre-Hire 360 library.
There are two key industry segments fueling SkillSurvey’s growth:
Healthcare – SkillSurvey has always had a strong foothold in this market where reference checking is a standard practice for healthcare hiring professionals. SkillSurvey continued to gain new clients and saw many existing hospitals expand their use of Pre-Hire 360 across more departments. Pre-Hire 360 is now used by 11 of the top 15 “Best Hospitals” named on U.S. News and World Report’s Honor Roll and 7 of 10 of the publication’s top-rated children’s hospitals. In addition, existing customers are adopting Credential 360® to bring doctors on board faster by automating the collection of online peer references and hospital affiliations as part of the credentialing process.
Staffing and Recruiting Industry – With an unprecedented 87% increase in the number of staffing accounts served as compared to last year, SkillSurvey is helping staffing and recruiting agencies develop stronger client relationships by performing reference checks faster, building larger passive candidate pipelines, and providing quality candidate data.
SkillSurvey provides cloud-based solutions to help human capital management professionals manage critical points in the talent lifecycle using data and insight to more effectively recruit, hire and manage employees to drive business results. The company’s flagship solution, Pre-Hire 360®, is an award-winning, patented technology that utilizes a unique combination of behavioral science and talent analytics. SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360 reference solution is scientifically proven to provide data that can be used to drive more informed hiring decisions based upon feedback provided by references on a candidate’s past job performance. The company also offers an extension of Pre-Hire 360 in the form of a passive sourcing solution, and the recently launched Credential 360® , a new solution that helps hospitals and healthcare organizations improve patient care outcomes by expediting the professional credential verification process.
