Integration Extends Reach of Unique, Gamified Pre-Employment Testing Simulations to More HR Professionals and Recruiters Worldwide
CLEVELAND, OH–(Marketwired – May 5, 2014) – Shaker Consulting Group, a Gold level member of Oracle® Partner Network (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of its Virtual Job Tryout® solution with the Oracle Taleo Business Edition Cloud Service, a component of Oracle Talent Management Cloud. This Oracle Validated Integration will combine Oracle’s cloud platform for human capital management for midsize companies and organizations with the unique candidate application process to help improve employee selection and help companies make better hiring decisions.
To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers.
A highly customizable simulation for pre-employment testing with gamelike components, Virtual Job Tryout offers a distinct competitive advantage for companies by engaging candidates with a realistic and memorable job preview. According to Shaker Consulting Group’s research, the majority of candidates surveyed would refer others based on the unique nature of their Virtual Job Tryout application experience. Virtual Job Tryout helps improve companies’ staffing processes through four specific metrics — predictive candidate data, increased staffing efficiency, reduced staffing waste and improved new hire performance.
“With realistic simulations that present an engaging test drive of a variety of job demands, our clients are using the analytic power of Virtual Job Tryouts to improve the accuracy and quality of their hires while enhancing their candidates’ experience,” said Shaker co-founder Brian Stern. “From financial institutions to specialty retailers and every type of business in between, companies are using our solution to measure critical success-related characteristics of a candidate and enable HR professionals and recruiters to better identify qualified candidates and make more reliable staffing decisions.”
“Achieving Oracle Validated Integration gives our customers confidence that the integration between Shaker Consulting Group’s Virtual Job Tryout and Oracle Taleo Business Edition Cloud Service is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said Kevin O’Brien, senior director, ISV and SaaS Strategy, Oracle. “For solutions deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner’s integrated offering.”
