Jobalign and Talentwise partner to offer Smart-Recruiting and Onboarding of Hourly Workers

Partnership for Cloud Based Pre and Post Hire Hourly Jobs Recruiting Solution Technology

Seattle, WA—Jan 5th, 2016—Jobalign, the leading Mobile and Bilingual Cloud based Recruiting Solution and Marketplace for hourly jobs, announced its partnership with TalentWise, a leading Cloud solutions provider for the Human Capital Management (HCM) industry. The alliance between the two Seattle-based technology companies offers large employers a streamlined integration between the Jobalign solution, which reduces by 60 percent the overall costs of sourcing, screening and recruiting high volumes of hourly workers while reducing the total time to hire by more than 50 percent, and the TalentWise solution, which automates background screening and onboarding to further streamline their operations and contribute to a best-in-class candidate experience.

Through this integration, users can initiate TalentWise background and drug screenings for candidates directly from the Jobalign Cloud based recruiting system. The partnership also provides clear visibility into each candidate’s progress throughout the job application, matching, screening and onboarding process which, integrated with Jobalign’s enterprise analytics, provides a unique view into the complete pre-hire and post-hire operation in high-volume hiring environments, enabling customers and hiring managers to optimize their processes while also providing a best-in-class experience for the candidates to these hourly wage positions.

There are 44 million service employees earning $14.30 an hour and costing $2,000 each to recruit, screen, select, onboard, and train, according to the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment at U.C. Berkeley. “ Simply maintaining 27 million retail, hospitality, and general labor (janitorial, security, distribution centers) positions costs $20 billion,” said Luis Salazar, co-founder and CEO of Jobalign Inc. “Our integration with TalentWise combines the best Cloud based pre-hiring technology from Jobalign: sourcing, mobile, bilingual and automated screening, applicant tracking system, enterprise recruiting analytics and compliance with the best in class background screening and onboarding technology provided by TalentWise.”

Todd Owens, CEO of TalentWise, commented, “To make ends meet, hourly workers often bear the unique burden of managing job applications for different shifts at different companies. It can be frustrating for these workers in the absence of a fully transparent hiring process, and they frequently lose confidence in the company altogether. The integration between Jobalign and TalentWise creates seamless hiring process — from sourcing to screening and onboarding — greatly simplifying the process for recruiting and hiring managers, while creating a positive and engaging brand experience for their candidates.”

Since 2014, Jobalign has processed close to two million mobile and EEOC compliant job applications, serving the needs of large Retailers, Staffing Agencies, Managed Services Companies and Hospitality groups that each hire over 5,000 hourly workers per year and that seek to hire faster and more efficiently. Jobalign works directly with companies as well as through leading Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) companies in the U.S. “Large corporations deal with inefficiencies in job advertising, candidate sourcing and screening, recruiting and onboarding that are augmented by the high volume of hires they conduct,” concluded Salazar. “By working closely with TalentWise, we are enabling these large employers to put people back to work faster and more efficiently.”
