Talent assessment provider Plum announced new offerings that deliver unprecedented functionality and insight into job matching, career discovery and development, culture gap analysis and workforce analytics.  

Building on Plum’s award-winning enterprise solution is the launch of PlumThrive™, a first-of-its-kind Talent-Drive Platform that enables organizations to uncover role fit, skills, and the cultural dynamics that help teams succeed. Providing a 360-degree panoramic view into talent pools to inform data-driven decisions, PlumThrive combines psychometric science and advanced data analysis to identify and surface the unique strengths of candidates and employees that support growth strategies and foster productive cultures, including hard and soft skills.  

Plum CEO Caitlin MacGregor commented, “Today’s business environment relies on creating competitive advantages, quickly; yet we see organizations trying to achieve big outcomes with broken workflows, bad data and outdated technology. No business can afford to sit back and hope to get its people strategies right. The core of the issue lies in the reliance on metrics that aren’t capable of accurately forecasting performance or potential, which leads to critical missteps: making new hires using misleading indicators, overlooking real contributors for promotions, and creating a fantasy narrative between the culture envisioned by leadership and the reality being lived by the workforce.” 

Complementing the launch of PlumThrive is another new solution named PlumFlourish™. Recognizing the need for a user-centric solution designed specifically for use by job seekers, candidates and employees, PlumFlourish provides personalized career suggestions, development plans, and job recommendations based on user profiles. PlumFlourish enables users to take control of their careers through informative profiles that accurately represent their skills and personality. 

Avature, the leading provider of innovative Human Capital Management (HCM) software for recruiting and talent management, today announces the launch of the Avature Chatbot, a platform-native feature set that enhances user experiences throughout the talent lifecycle.

Powered by state-of-the-art, AI-enabled semantic technology developed in-house, the Avature Chatbot transcends the limitations of traditional chatbots that rely on conventional, workflow-based approaches, engaging users in natural, non-predefined conversations beyond keyword matching. Built on a conversational model, the Chatbot understands and responds to users in a human-like manner.

Focusing on customer feedback regarding the continued need to improve candidate experience, the first iteration of the Chatbot enhances the job search experience for career site visitors by providing immediate answers to their frequently asked questions, as well as driving conversion through smart job recommendations in multiple languages.

In a market still dominated by third-party “bolt-on” chatbots that cannot leverage all the data customers have collected in their recruiting systems, Avature is introducing a platform-native chatbot that can be easily enabled with the flick of a switch, sidestepping the need for challenging integrations.

“Conversational AI technology is developing at a breathtaking pace, and Avature is staying at the forefront of this evolution. To provide the best experience for the user, the Chatbot has to be deeply integrated into the rest of the platform, which is why we have built it ourselves,” said Rabih Zbib, Machine Learning Director at Avature.
