Toronto ON; May 10, 2016Ideal.com, the leading online job marketplace exclusively for sales professionals announced today the launch of their proprietary blind hiring recruitment solution.

“We’re very excited to be able to offer anonymized candidate profiles on our platform,” said Somen Mondal, CEO of Ideal.com. “Our blind hiring solution gives forward-thinking employers the ability to remove identifiable data from job applications – information such as name, age, gender, and photos – allowing all candidates to be objectively evaluated based on skills and experience.”

Ideal.com enables employers to hire sales professionals that are statistically more likely to ramp up faster, hit quota and stay longer in the role by duplicating their top performers, all while streamlining the sourcing and prescreening of candidates. Using a job matching algorithm, Ideal.com identifies candidates who have the optimal personality and skills for a sales role, and ensures they will be comfortable and effective within the company’s established culture.

The launch of the organization’s new blind hiring feature – anonymizing identifiable data from candidate profiles – will further help to remove unconscious bias and “gut feeling” from the recruitment process, creating an even playing field for all candidates while allowing employers to make objective hiring decisions backed by data.

“Unconscious bias is a serious issue, and it’s our mission to help employers take the guesswork out of hiring and select new employees based on merit,” said Shaun Ricci, COO of Ideal.com. “Building a diverse sales team also just makes good business sense. It is well documented that diverse organizations outperform their counterparts by as much as 35%.”

Ideal.com is currently looking for a select number of employers to participate in the initial launch of the organization’s blind hiring solution. Companies interested in learning more can email VP of Product Management Jason Slaughter at contact@ideal.com.

At present, the Ideal.com database contains more than 50,000 highly skilled sales professionals, and the organization has provided recruiting services for over 800 leading companies including those found in the Fortune 1000. Ideal.com currently operates in the following metro areas: New York, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago and Toronto. An aggressive expansion is planned for the third quarter of 2016 – more metro areas will be added this summer.
