HRchitect Tech Vendor News: Saba Unveils Recruiting@Work to Enable Collaborative and Predictive Hiring

New Recruiting Solution Further Extends Saba Cloud – Saba’s Next-Generation Talent Management Suite

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – Dec. 12, 2013 – Saba (OTCPink: SABA), a global leader in next-generation cloud solutions for talent management, today announced its new recruiting offering, Recruiting@Work. A part of Saba Cloud, Recruiting@Work brings objectivity into hiring decisions, giving recruiters and hiring managers the ability to more effectively hire talent in the new world of work. Built upon Saba’s long-standing heritage in talent management, the innovative Recruiting@Work solution addresses three core requirements: predictive recruiting, collaborative hiring, and accelerated screening and onboarding. This focus enables organizations – from small-to-midsized companies to larger enterprises – to quickly discover, hire and onboard top talent.

Too often, hiring managers and recruiters seek new hires within the limited confines of inbound resumes, social media profiles and subjective interviews. To compete today, it is vital that organizations accurately understand the needs of their internal teams and have the tools to uncover the best candidate for the job – whether it is someone halfway across the globe or an employee just down the hall. But today’s challenges cannot be solved with yesterday’s solutions. In order to source the best potential candidates – both externally and internally – recruiters and hiring managers need a state-of-the-art recruiting solution, a smarter applicant tracking system (ATS). It must be simple-to-use, social, mobile, smart and collaborative.

“Recruiting the best, most talented workforce is more important than ever to an organization’s success. Current tools, unfortunately, aren’t delivering the best candidates or providing the required objectivity to make the best hires,” said Shawn Farshchi, president and CEO at Saba. “Saba has uniquely delivered a consumer-grade user experience with advanced capabilities such as machine learning, native video interviewing and comprehensive mobile recruiting support to help bring in top talent faster and increase the number of successful hires that can then contribute to long-term business success.”

The key features included in Saba’s Recruiting@Work offering are:

  • Predictive Recruiting: Saba lets recruiters and hiring managers more effectively identify both external and internal candidates using Web-sourcing and Saba’s patent-pending machine learning technology, The Intelligent Mentor (TIM). TIM insightfully reviews, sorts and prioritizes possible candidates based on skill-sets, offering guidance on which internal candidates managers might want to approach for new opportunities. TIM also can make recommendations to the employees on the skills or training needed to qualify for a new position and thus, open up new career paths. Additionally, Saba’s new offering provides a SmartHire AssistantTM decision dashboard which allows hiring teams to take subjectivity out of hiring and select the right candidate.
  • Collaborative Hiring and Video Interviewing: Recruiting@Work allows hiring to be a connected, collaborative process, offering companies a team-oriented interviewing approach. All employees can provide input on possible candidates, as well as feedback on each candidates experience and potential – online or directly from their mobile device. As part of Saba Cloud, Recruiting@Work is able to tap into Saba’s market-leading video conferencing capabilities to power video interviews, including recording interviews for later review across the hiring team.
  • Accelerated Screening and Onboarding: Recruiting@Work enables organizations to more effectively screen candidates, as well as quickly bring selected new hires up-to-speed on the company’s operations and his or her new role. By tapping into Saba’s native online assessment capabilities, each job posting can auto-screen new candidates based on simple-to-advanced assessments within the candidate application process. Once selected, companies can rapidly onboard candidates using Saba’s advanced onboarding capabilities allowing employees to become integrated into the company and delivering increased bottom line results faster.
