Market leading job board totaljobs, has announced an exciting new integration with candidate personality and company culture matching platform Good&Co. The two StepStone owned companies are now fully integrated, meaning employers advertising on totaljobs are able to ask applicants to complete a psychometric test prior to interviewing them.
Good&Co, a San Francisco based tech firm, was acquired by StepStone in 2016 and has access to the world’s largest psychometric database, with over 2.7 million profiles. Good&Co leverages over 30 years of research in career psychometrics and psychological analysis to provide quantified, science-backed insights into an organisation’s culture.
Through its integration with the ‘disruptive technology’ of Good&Co, totaljobs hopes to revolutionise the recruitment industry with the aim of speeding up the hiring process, and enabling recruiters to focus their efforts on the most suitable candidates.
Accessible from the totaljobs hiring platform, recruiters can invite applicants to complete a short psychometric test at no extra cost. The resulting report provides insight into a candidate’s personality, preferred working style and suggested interview questions, all of which serves to optimise the recruitment process.
The new offering allows recruiters a simple way to better assess a candidate’s cultural fit, early in the recruitment process.
Bonnie Andrews, Head of Product at totaljobs comments:
“Today’s announcement marks another exciting step in our mission to help candidates find a job they love, and to help recruiters find the right candidate for a successful hire. Now, not only do we offer employers access to over half of the UK’s working population, but we can offer real insight into these candidates, and enable recruiters to remove any guesswork from hiring.
The tool is designed to tackle pain-points of employers, helping to boost the relevancy of applications against the mounting cost of an unsuccessful hire. Perhaps just as importantly, it allows recruiters to save time, by allowing them to pre-screen a candidate’s suitability before inviting them to an interview.”
Samar Birwadker, CEO and Founder at Good&Co comments:
“Good&Co’s partnership with totaljobs merges the innovation of Silicon Valley technology with the best-in-class expertise of the UK’s largest job board. The totaljobs platform allows Good&Co to bring its technology to millions of UK jobseekers and employers giving them access to powerful tools to leverage culture-fit in a quantifiable way for the very first time.
With over 65 million questions answered by millions of jobseekers at over 10,000 companies, Good&Co leverages big data, A.I. and machine learning to deliver a quantifiable, competitive advantage to companies and managers to make better-informed decisions. This integration marks the first time psychometrics and soft-skill assessments have been implemented at such a massive scale.”
In May 2018, totaljobs announced a new partnership with Jobsite to offer recruiters access to the largest hiring platform in the UK, recording over 21 million website visits and 4 million applications every month.
