Partnership Enhances Customer’s Ability to Make Better Informed Hiring Decisions
St. Augustine Beach, FL. (January 24, 2014) – BrightMove, a leading provider of on-demand recruiting software for staffing firms, outsourcing providers and corporate HR departments, today announced a partnership with CrewRevu, a provider of consolidated user-friendly social profiles.
Social media has permeated nearly every aspect of our daily lives and social media recruiting is here to stay. In fact, research shows that 94% of companies use or plan to use social media in their recruiting efforts in 2014. More and more companies are turning to social media sites to promote available positions, research potential applicants and make a decision on whether potential hires are a good fit for their organization.
The creators of CrewRevu have capitalized on this movement and created a product that provides a 360 degree view of how a person conducts themselves online in their social networks. Once a candidate opts in and creates a profile in CrewRevu, the recruiter is provided with a social snapshot of their online activity. This social assessment aggregates, filters and delivers a variety of information, such as what “type” of social media user a candidate is, how often they post, their primary use (business vs. personal) and a general description of their activity level. Additional information, such as work experience, recommendations, skills and educational background, is also provided.
The CrewRevu integration will allow BrightMove customers to seamlessly embed this review process into their business workflow. In turn, candidates have the ability to control their digital presence. Designed to be compliant, CrewRevu will enable BrightMove customers to make the best hire possible and ensure good fit and suitability. Customers will also be able to determine if a candidate’s digital presence exposes them to potential risks.
“We are pleased to be able to offer our customers this deeper level of candidate information,” said Michael Brandt, Chief Operating Officer of BrightMove. “Avoiding negligent hires through adequate screening is essential in our technology-centric world. Being able to understand how a candidate’s use of social network could potentially impact an organization is priceless.”
“Having the ability to present your online activities and persona dramatically helps job seekers,” said Kevin Potter, President of CrewRevu. “CrewRevu empowers people and allows jobseekers to combine their social network content into a social snapshot for their distribution and benefit. The essence of CrewRevu is to be socially seen and recognized, showing people as an integrated whole, understanding that businesses hire ‘people’ and standing apart from other candidates on a list.”
