HR Policy Recruiting Software Initiative Review Board Identifies Innovators in the Field of Human Resources Automation and Software Solutions

Washington, D.C. – The HR Policy Association, the leading organization representing over 380 Chief Human Resources Officers at the largest corporations in the United States, is pleased to announce that its Recruiting Software Initiative (RSI) has awarded Ideal with a Badge of Excellence for Justification. Talent acquisition leaders from nearly 20 HR Policy member companies assembled at the beginning of 2018 to create the RSI Review Board to identify innovators whose products and services deserve consideration by Chief Human Resource Officers of large corporations. The Review Board is currently evaluating companies offering solutions to enhance a company’s ability to attract, assess, hire and retain top talent. The Review Board does not promote any one software solution over another. Instead, they assess each solution through distinct lenses related to the application’s ability to adapt, mitigate unconscious bias, comply with labor regulations, exhibit successful integrations, justify outcomes, and demonstrate returns directly correlated to the vendor’s platform. Badges of Excellence are awarded to recruiting solutions assessed by the RSI Review Board and are awarded to those that demonstrated innovative approaches to improving the ability of employers to identify, attract, evaluate and retain critically important talent. By receiving a Badge of Excellence for Justification, the RSI Review Board felt Ideal exhibited a diligent approach to how they validated outcomes and performed quality assurance checks.
