Halifax-based company combines scientific research and machine learning to help companies recruit and hire more effectively
Halifax, NS – February 21, 2018 – HRTech Outlook has recognized Fit First Technologies Inc. as a leader in human resources technology. The Halifax-based high-tech firm not only made the magazine’s 2018 list of the top recruitment software solution providers, it is the only Canadian company included in the prestigious annual rankings.
Fit First’s flagship TalentSorter platform combines psychological research, predictive analytics, machine learning and a proprietary algorithm to identify the key traits that contribute to success in a specific position. The software not only effectively pre-screens applicants for their likely fit in the role they are applying to, but develops a customized ideal candidate profile and prepares an interview guide to ensure recruiters and hiring managers ask the right questions. The end result is a shorter, more effective, and cost-efficient recruiting process along with lower employee turnover and higher employee satisfaction rates.
In the past, access to high-powered data analytics and screening tools were limited to Fortune 500 companies with big budgets. Fit First co-founders Jan van der Hoop and Tim Brennan aim to level the playing field by designing platforms that are scalable to companies of any size, in any industry.
“We are honoured to be recognized by HRTech Outlook as a leader in the human resources technology industry,” says van der Hoop. “For more than 10 years we’ve been proud to help companies save time and money by streamlining their recruiting processes and finding the right candidates by hiring for “fit first,” rather than wasting valuable time sorting through resumes and work histories that don’t actually provide much insight into predicting how successful an applicant will be. Being named one of the top 10 recruitment software solution providers by our fellow industry experts is confirmation that we are leading a much-needed shift in thinking around how talent and opportunity are matched up.”
Fit First’s newest platform, MyHiring.Guru, is aimed at small and medium-sized businesses. The program offers one-stop recruiting service to SMBs, from placing job ads online and collecting applications, screening candidates for “fit” and ranking them in order, to preparing customized interview guides.
“Hiring the right candidates is just as important to the small business owner as it is to large multinationals with in-house recruiting teams and HR experts,” says van der Hoop. “With TalentSorter and now MyHiring.Guru, we aim to broaden the reach of this technology so that every company, regardless of size or industry, can access its benefits.”
