Talent Acquisition: Sourcing, Recruiting, & Hiring Manager Collaboration 🔎

New: Explore the latest Smart Profile enhancements

Check out all the latest improvements to our new Smart Profile experience, which helps your sourcers and recruiters discover a new skills-based hiring workflow. Quickly assess talent (with skills-powered Profiles), evaluate candidates’ skills and potential quickly without opening a resume, and improve collaboration with Hiring Managers.

Coming soon: Easily add Tasks to Profiles 

Add Tasks directly to people’s profiles, and improve collaboration and communication between team members. 

📍 Coming to Sandbox on March 7, and Production on March 20.

Coming soon: Add richer Notes to Profiles 

Leverage the Rich Text Editor when adding notes or sending a direct message from the profile, and find text formatting options like bold, italics, lists, hyperlinking, and more.

📍 Coming to Sandbox on March 20, and Production on 3 April. 

Coming soon: Easily download PDF from the Smart Profile

Get all the essential candidate details in a user-friendly PDF, with the option to include a vacancy ID if required. (Further customization options are coming soon.)

There’s more! Sourcers and recruiters can further reduce bias while reviewing profiles, thanks to a new option to download a “masked PDF”, with curated data. 

Users can easily download a PDF where the candidate name is masked, the educational institution names are removed, and the start and end dates for experiences and education are replaced with total durations (e.g. 3 years 2 months). 

Why is this important?

Sourcers can still get an idea of how much experience a person has, while reducing the impact of unconscious bias in the following scenarios:

  • Candidates who have had career breaks to look after children or dependent adults (e.g. mothers taking maternity leave)
  • Candidates whose graduation dates might reveal information about their age that may put them at a disadvantage.

📍 Coming to Sandbox on March 7.

Talent Acquisition: Candidate Attraction & Nurture 🧲

New: Automatically avoid spam filtering in Campaigns

In February 2024, Gmail and Yahoo implemented stricter rules for categorizing emails as spam and filtering them out of recipient mailboxes. A significant change is the requirement for volume emails (such as Campaigns) to include an automated “unsubscribe” feature and to promptly handle any unsubscribe requests.

Beamery now enables unsubscribes directly within the system, respecting candidates’ preferences. The solution leverages “list-unsubscribe” headers, which align with Google and Yahoo’s guidelines for one-click unsubscribing.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • No Setup Required: When Campaign emails are sent, they automatically include the list-unsubscribe headers. These headers contain data specifying an unsubscribe email address.
  • A Simple Candidate Experience: Candidates receiving Campaign emails can simply click the “unsubscribe” button or link within their email client. An email requesting unsubscribing is automatically sent and processed by Beamery.
  • Compliance, With Ease The candidate’s Beamery profile reflects the unsubscribe status, ensuring they won’t receive further Campaigns.

This streamlined approach respects candidates’ choices while simplifying the process for hiring teams.

Workforce Intelligence 💡

In case you missed it: Add & remove skills in your Dynamic Job Architecture

Job Architecture users can now manage their skills data with greater ease. Add one or multiple skills to a role, remove any duplicates or amend them to reflect their evolution. 

Skills are carefully extracted from a variety of sources (e.g. job descriptions, profiles) – allowing you to move beyond a focus on job titles alone to a focus on skills, and give a clearer picture of the current level of internal demand.

Updated skills get ingested by our proprietary Beamery Knowledge Graph to contextualize the relationship between role titles and skills, and enhance skills inferences within Dynamic Job Architecture over time.
