Recently Launched Ideal.com Dramatically Increases Candidate Satisfaction, Reduces Time-to-Hire by 32%
Toronto ON; March 31st, 2016 – Until today, the process of finding your ideal sales career was often based on limited information and whichever roles a job seeker discovers first. Candidates applied blindly to multiple positions and never truly knew their strengths and whether they were a good fit for the role.
HR and hiring managers faced a similar challenge: recruiting and hiring the best candidates remained a long and inefficient process. Despite the best HR practices, hiring managers were still forced to depend on gut instinct when offering a job to candidates, never truly knowing if the new hire would thrive within a company’s culture until she undertakes the new position.
Enter Ideal.com, the online job marketplace exclusively for sales professionals that replaces gut instinct with predictive personality and cultural analytics. Using proprietary compatibility matching technology, Ideal.com empowers job seekers to learn about their unique strengths and ideal work environment, and pairs salespeople with roles that best match their individual skill sets, desired salary and location.
“Ideal.com is a fantastic solution for job seekers,” said Dan Mearns, a Sales Executive who found recent employment through the website. “Ideal.com is the exact opposite of a job board – instead of applying endlessly to companies, jobs look for you. The solution matched me to roles based on my specific strengths where I would be successful. Within a week of signing up I had a job offer from a high growth software startup that I accepted. My career is progressing and I’m making more money than I could have ever imagined.”
Additionally, Ideal.com provides a wealth of resources for job seekers such as the ability to view detailed video profiles of companies to get an understanding of the office environment and culture of potential employers.
“The missing link in the recruitment and hiring process is relevant and actionable data,” said Somen Mondal, CEO of Ideal.com. “We take a candidate-first approach, helping job seekers identify their strengths and interview at organizations where they will thrive. Ideal.com is dramatically reducing hiring errors for employers as we assist candidates find their dream jobs – this ends up being a win-win situation for everyone involved.”
Ideal.com’s predictive algorithms help employers ensure that new hires will be both comfortable and effective within a company’s established culture. The solution enables employers to duplicate their top performing salespeople while streamlining the sourcing and prescreening of candidates. Companies that deploy Ideal.com enjoy an average 32% reduction in time-to-hire, while also lowering recruiting costs.
“We realized that the recruiting and hiring process is one of the last corporate functions that has not been improved with technology,” said Shaun Ricci, Ideal.com Co-Founder and COO.
“Resumes can be embellished and interviews can be marred by bias and often degenerate from honest consultation to an audition where candidates ‘act the part.’ The proven data analytics of Ideal.com help create an even playing field for all candidates and deliver greater efficiencies to the recruitment and hiring process.”
At present, the Ideal.com database contains more than 50,000 candidates and serves a variety of companies including those found in the Fortune 1000. The service is available for candidates seeking employment in the following metro areas: San Francisco, Boston, Toronto and Chicago. An aggressive expansion is planned for 2016 – more metro areas will be added this summer.
