Hiretual, the sourcing platform announced amplified functionalities of its Market Insights feature to provide hiring teams with flexible talent intelligence capabilities during a year of shifting employee and job-seeker behavior. The updates also improve the quality of candidate searches for underrepresented talent by giving companies comprehensive talent reports to put effective diversity hiring plans in action.
The platform’s Diversity Intelligence capabilities provide companies with robust reporting to drive impactful diversity hiring strategies in the right places and to the right people. These reports aggregate data on how diverse talent pools are responding to the market, including the top locations, companies and schools they come from. Hiretual analyzes these data points to predict benchmarking factors, such as average tenure and average market value, to help teams prepare for better attraction and retention rates of minority talent.
“As organizations combat hiring challenges like the Great Resignation as well as prioritize embracing a culture of diversity and inclusion, talent intelligence has become critical for hiring teams,” said Steven Jiang, CEO and co-founder of Hiretual. “Hiretual’s Market Insights gives companies the ability to allocate hiring resources tailored toward a particular group of talent, segmented by factors including location, average market value and seniority, for hiring teams across the country.”

Stoke, a pioneer in the freelance management system space, announces today it is extending its support to providing global payroll and compliance to international employees as an Employee of Record (EoR). Expanding its platform to support international employees as well as non-payroll workers — which includes freelancers, independent contractors, consultants, and agencies — Stoke is filling a newly developed market need by enabling companies to work more effectively with a global workforce that includes both freelancers and full-time employees.
As small and mid-size tech companies are adapting to global workforces with freelance talent and full-time employees, they need solutions that can help them manage both types of workers while also allowing them to effectively capitalize on the global talent market. Recruiting globally opens the door to a far larger talent pool, but also comes with new challenges and rules that companies must learn to navigate.
