Read Time2 Minute, 40 Second

WORQDRIVE, the people-first internal talent mobility engine designed to make it easy for employees to stay, today announced the launch of a new module that re-imagines the succession planning process. The additional functionality reinforces the flexibility of the WORQDRIVE solution while allowing leaders – and employees – to envision possible talent development plans, which are a critical retention strategy as the Great Resignation continues to impact organizations across industries.

Seeking to address the pitfalls and help people teams retain talent amid ongoing shortages, WORQDRIVE aims to democratize succession planning across the workforce. WORQDRIVE makes it possible to create succession plans for employees at all levels in line with current organizational needs, such as short-term support gigs or an impending retirement as well as long-term talent development.

With WORQDRIVE, after creating a plan, team members use the module dashboard to collaborate and search for talent within the organization – anonymously. 

Andela, the global marketplace for remote technical talent, today announced the launch of its new platform, designed to create a more direct, personalized, and successful hiring experience for both talent and recruiters. The company, already known for its focus on high-quality global engineering talent from over 100 countries, has now expanded its offering to include designers, product managers, and data talent. To reflect this growth, Andela is also unveiling its new brand identity.

To get started on the new platform, hiring managers simply create a company profile, post a job, and can see their curated candidates instantly. Andela’s matching accounts for depth and breadth of skill requirements, timezone and working hour overlaps, industry expertise, and team fit.

Talent can see how well their skills match up to roles via a clean and easy-to-digest graph, helping users — both talent and recruiters — visualize compatibility, including overlap in skills and preferences.

hireEZ, the leading AI-powered outbound recruiting platform, today announced the launch of EZ Rediscovery and EZ Insights as part of the company’s mission to advance outbound recruiting and give organizations the data-driven solutions they need to succeed in today’s unprecedented and competitive talent marketplace.

EZ Rediscovery helps organizations unlock the potential of candidate profiles in their ATS by transforming and updating critical information including work history, skills, email addresses, phone numbers and more.

“We developed EZ Rediscovery to address a critical unmet need that so many organizations face today. Many recruiters rely on their ATS to search for potential candidates but if that information doesn’t reflect a candidate’s recent work experience or includes incorrect contact information, that puts the recruiter at a severe disadvantage,” said Xinwen Zhang, CTO and co-founder of hireEZ. “With EZ Rediscovery, recruiters can maximize the value of their ATS investment and easily sync candidate data across hireEZ and their ATS.”

In addition to hiring individual positions, many companies are also challenged with the complexities of developing long-term plans for their workforce. With EZ Insights, talent acquisition leaders can develop strategic and data-driven workforce plans with access industry-wide and competitor-specific benchmarking data that includes key metrics such as the total number of employees in functional areas, the average tenure of employees by title and company and diversity information.
