Yello, the leader in early talent acquisition software, today announced strategic partnerships with leading talent acquisition technology partners to create the Yello Sourcing Marketplace, a diverse marketplace representing millions of early talent candidates. The services will seamlessly integrate with the Yello platform to help employers find and hire candidates virtually.
As universities and organizations cancel career fairs and other in-person recruiting events due to COVID-19, employers are turning to virtual recruiting methods to connect with early-career candidates. Yello has partnered with Symplicity, Tallo and Hiring America to create the industry’s first Sourcing Marketplace to better facilitate virtual connections between employers and candidates and to streamline employers’ hiring workflows.
With these partnerships, Yello meets long-term customer demand and empowers employers to expand their traditional early talent pools and reach candidates from targeted diverse or academic backgrounds. Employers can tailor their recruiting efforts with targeted candidate pools that will also include STEM students, high school students, veterans and more. Plus, companies are able to source and engage candidates within one platform.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with these companies to help our customers source early talent more effectively,” said Yello co-founder Dan Bartfield. “Nearly all of our customers plan to recruit virtually this year, so it’s critical that they have options to source early talent candidates beyond the on-campus career fairs and large recruiting conferences that they typically attend. These Yello Sourcing Marketplace partnerships will help them do that.”
Each partner offers a large pool of candidates and a unique focus area:
Symplicity, the leader in employability software with more than 2,000 university and college clients, hopes to bring more opportunities to its student users with the partnership, while also providing its employers with more tools such as easy interview scheduling, candidate evaluation and integration with multiple applicant tracking systems.
“We are delighted to partner with Yello to create a diverse early talent marketplace that transcends traditional on-campus recruiting and brings more quality opportunities for students, while giving employers a seamless experience,” said President & CEO of Symplicity Matthew Small.
Companies, colleges, and governmental entities work with Tallo to develop strategies to enhance their diversity and inclusion programs, micro-target and connect with talent, and build their future workforce pipeline. Tallo helps their partners understand Gen Z and Millennial talent, take a strategic approach to cultivate new and existing talent, and focus on quality matches with candidates who are the right fit.
“Removing the barriers standing between companies and their future workforce is critical. For years, we have been providing our innovative clients a virtual, holistic approach to proactively engage with talent,” said Casey Welch, Tallo CEO and Co-founder. “This partnership will enable our clients to make stronger connections with our diverse group of more than one million talent users in a way that compliments and streamlines their existing talent pipeline strategy.”
”U.S. military veterans are an excellent source of talented, trained and disciplined job candidates,” said Bill Deutch, executive producer and creator of Hiring America. “We’re dedicated to providing expert information and opportunities to support the needs and goals of transitioning veterans, their families, friends, ecosystems — and are pleased to be partnering with such a superb company as Yello to launch the first Sourcing Marketplace.”
The Yello Sourcing Marketplace announcement is the latest in a series of virtual recruiting product enhancements from Yello. The company continues to release new functionality to support customers as they transition from in-person recruiting events to virtual recruiting events — including enhanced video interviews, interactive video conferencing and Yello-hosted livestreaming events.
Moving forward, Yello will work to forge partnerships with additional sourcing providers and enhance the Marketplace for the benefit of employers.
