Whether you’re hiring your first employee or hundredth, the recruiting process can be a pricey and timely process. Thankfully, technology has made the recruiting employees easier and faster.
Take for example the San Francisco-based hiQ Labs. By using big data, hiQ is able to apply “advanced algorithms and statistical methods to employee selection, development and retention by modeling historical data.” This valuable data from hiQ’s software and technology can be used to not only find the best employees for your company, but also helps you predict which individuals will stay with you. This method is definitely more effective than simply trusting your gut or using outdated recruiting systems.
While hiQ is a truly revolutionary company, it’s not the only startup that is improving the recruitment industry. Here are five other startups who are also changing the recruitment industry forever.
