Pymetrics partnered with HiredScore on a solution for talent acquisition teams who need to manage candidates and evaluate their potential based on a combination of hard and soft skills.
Among other things, the companies said their solution will “proactively” ensure that their algorithms avoid any kind of demographic bias.
Together, HiredScore’s HR intelligence and Pymetrics’ recently launched API will allow recruiters and hiring managers to identify relevant talent by examining hard and soft skills in a single view. Mutual customers will be able to use talent evaluation, integration, data synchronization and process automation between the two platforms, the companies said.
‘Currency for Talent’
In early June, Pymetrics made available API features that allow customers to access its predictive hiring data. With the API, customers maintain their existing systems of record and workflows while gaining the insights provided by Pymetrics’ Talent Matching Platform. The technology integrates directly into applicant tracking systems, HCMs, LMS systems and other platforms.
“Skills are quickly becoming the new currency for talent,” observed Helen Poiteven, VP Analyst at Gartner, in a statement provided by the companies. Employers, she said, need “insights and data that help track the combination of skills, knowledge, experience, behavior, interests, motivation and preferences of each employee over time.”
The HiredScore-Pymetrics partnership helps do that in a way that’s both comprehensive and efficient, the companies said. For example, joint customers will be able to access Pymetrics’ reports directly through the HiredScore platform.
Pymetrics’ technology measures soft skills to help companies find appropriate candidates for each role and predict successful hires. HiredScore provides customized algorithms that help prioritize candidates and automate sourcing.
