Well, the product team are looking a bit dazed but it’s all in the name of success! We’ve launched the first in a series of recruitment tool integrations: Number one on our list? SmartRecruiters.Making sure the different HR technologies you use play nicely with each other is vital. For Weirdly, that means making sure you can use us within (and alongside) your current ATS or candidate management system.A SmartRecruiters integration was a natural choice for our first biggie. They’re on a mission to make hiring easy. We liked the sound of that. The fact that they’re one of the world's fastest growing Talent Acquisition Platforms doesn’t hurt either. They grew over 500% between 2014 and 2015, and this year looks like it’s shaping up well too.We’re super chuffed to be connected with these cool guys and featured in their assessment marketplace.This particular integration has also allowed us to add a new offering to the Weirdly stable.
Our team (led by our new psychology head-honcho, Jeff Godbout) has used years of collected data to pull together a few off-the-shelf screening assessments. While these aren’t matched to an individual company culture, they can screen candidates for the common attributes needed to be awesome in certain types of company or team. These new off-the-shelf screening assessments are:
StartupCulture: There are common attributes needed to really succeed in the high-pressure world of startup. This screening assessment will help check whether your candidates have what it takes.
Innovation Culture: Creating a culture of innovation is still ranking high on most larger company priority lists. Creating a team that captures a bit of the startup innovation culture, while still being able to operate in a larger corporate environment requires a special kind of screening survey.
(Coming Soon) Graduate Culture: Screening graduates on their resume is, well, often sort of redundant. This survey will help you understand if your candidates have the qualities you look for in grads, even if they don't have a lot of experience in a particular role.
As part of our new integration, these screening surveys are available in the SmartRecruiters marketplace.SmartRecruiters users can then send them out to candidates without ever leaving their dashboard. Once the candidate completes the screening survey, their score is displayed on their candidate profile, and a pdf copy of their answers is automatically attached.There’s a handy link on each candidate report incase you want to know more about what the screening assessment is measuring. We’ve even kept it really clear and concise – no-one’s got time to wade through loads of confusing babble!Finally, for people who are keen for something more customized to their specific company culture, Weirdly’s full custom option is just a click away.We can help you design your dream screening assessment. Customised so it looks and feels like your brand, with an awesome candidate experience, video integration and a tailored question bank written by our in-house data/psych team. Once you’re happy, we can load it up into your SmartRecruiters account so it’s only accessible to you and your team.You can check out more about how this SmartRecruiters integration works and put your hand up for first access when we go live later this week.
This is just the first of many integrations we’ve got planned over the coming weeks and months.Those of you who use Lever, Greenhouse as your ATS, and who use video or Slack somewhere in your process – keep your eyes peeled here.And if you’re using another HR technology or software in your recruiting and want us to add it to our integration hit-list, flick us a tweet or join our People-people slack channel .
