Lever’s summer release includes a new module, Visual Insights, which it positions as its next generation of talent analytics in an attempt to help talent acquisition teams make more informed decisions while remaining agile.

Visual Insights was built to offer talent teams a more data-driven approach to recruiting, the company said. The idea is to help talent leaders build and optimize their recruitment strategy, and also help recruiters, sourcers and hiring managers find and hire ideal candidates by using data.

The product’s meant to help employers move quickly, make better hires and make data available to everyone, Lever said. Built directly into Lever, Visual Insights allows users to track KPIs in one place. Role-based dashboards make data consumable and actionable, and help customers understand where their insights are coming from based on up-to-date metrics.

Visual Insights has “robust filtering capabilities, flexible functionality and accurate data refreshes through a series of curated dashboards within Lever,” said Head of Product Lori Ellsworth.

Dashboards and More Tools

The summer release also includes:

  • Hiring Manager Dashboards: Three of them, to provide managers with a holistic view of requisitions, job postings and pipelines to facilitate collaboration with the TA team.
  • Automation Hub automates email-related chores for recruiters. It also includes the ability to create email workflows as candidates reach specific stages.
  • Indeed Integrations: The Indeed Job Feed and Indeed Apply allow users to create jobs in Lever and send them directly to Indeed. This allows companies to keep job listings up-to-date.
  • Administrative Tools: Customers can set data retention rules by country and better manage candidate information.

In early August, Lever was acquired by Employ Inc., a company formed as a corporate home for Jobvite, JazzHR and NXTThing RPO, and which claims to be the industry’s largest provider of talent acquisition solutions.

In June, the company launched its Talent Maturity Model to help customers understand their hiring practices and identify areas for improvement. The aim, Lever said at the time, was to help customers keep pace “with a shifting environment and people’s needs.”
