London, 29th November 2022: Beamery, provider of the leading Talent Lifecycle Management platform, today announced innovations across its product suite that will revolutionize the way companies personalize the talent experience.
Core to these enhancements is the release of Candidate Portals – the first candidate hub that enables ‘skills-based role discovery’, enabling job seekers and alumni to discover and be matched with roles within an organization that are a good fit for their current capabilities, and to see what their future career path at that organization could look like if they joined. The Candidate Portal also provides candidates options to be shortlisted for the future, so that when new roles open up they will receive alerts for jobs that are a fit for their skills.
This innovation enables companies to create a more inclusive experience than traditional job applications by guiding would-be applicants to roles and career paths that they might not have considered or had the confidence to apply for, and by enabling employers to review and pipeline potential candidates based on their skills and potential rather than more traditional parameters such as someone’s education and years of experience. With increasing demand for career growth opportunities – 38% of workers see career development as one of the most important factors in choosing a new role – these updates enable organizations to showcase their commitment to learning and development, and attract and retain high quality talent.
Companies can extend this deep personalization across the talent lifecycle, with Beamery’s latest updates to its AI-driven capabilities for employees and alumni. Mentorship Matching in Beamery Grow enables employees to be connected with internal mentors who can provide guidance, advice and skill development. This tailored approach to the career aspirations and interest of every worker is crucial for companies looking to retain and empower employees. Also, for the first time, employee and alumni data is now searchable in the CRM, enabling Beamery’s explainable AI to provide skills-based recommendations to help acquisition teams build pipelines from a single unified pool of all talent.
Beamery’s latest product innovations also include:
- Preference Center: Candidates can manage their communication preferences and, for the first time, control the way that companies use their data in AI models. This advancement in AI compliance ensures organizations are prepared for upcoming legislation and regulation around fair use of AI and the provision of AI accommodations in hiring and employment.
- Enhanced Campaign Editor: Cutting the time it takes to create on-brand email campaigns to keep candidates engaged. Organizations that have piloted this feature as part of the Beamery Labs program have described it as a “game changer” that has resulted in over 10% increase in open rates and over 40% reduction in average time to open messages.
- Updated AI-Powered Browser Extension: Showing recruiters how likely it is that a candidate would be open to move, and engaging with them.
“As we grapple with an increasingly uncertain global economic environment, organizations need to adapt their talent strategies to become more agile. This requires taking a more skills-centric approach to the roles they are hiring for, and considering how they can create skill-based pipelines to allow them to move faster when roles re-open in the future,” said Sultan Saidov, Co-Founder and President of Beamery.
“With these latest product innovations, we help our customers to not only create more agility and speed in identifying the right talent, but also to set a new standard in personalized and inclusive experiences for candidates and employees at a time when keeping top performers engaged is more important than ever.”
Stacey Molinar, Senior Program Manager, TA Strategy, VMware, said: “Since partnering with Beamery and rolling out Beamery Marketing, CRM and Automation, VMware has found more efficient ways to personalize the talent experience across the candidate journey.”
