PeopleAdmin, the industry-leading provider of talent management solutions for higher education, and SkillSurvey, the provider of faster, more reliable online reference checking, have entered into a strategic partnership to integrate solutions and help recruiters in higher education to more easily find and hire great candidates.
According to SkillSurvey, studies indicate half of senior administrators in higher education will exit their current positions in the next five to 10 years.
Given this trend, the importance of more intelligent hiring and streamlined talent management has never been greater. Both companies offer solutions to help colleges and universities build healthy pools of qualified candidates.
SkillSurvey’s pre-hire reference check solution helps organizations easily reach references to collect detailed, predictive feedback using job-specific surveys for hundreds of roles, including administrators, deans, advisors and faculty. PeopleAdmin’s talent management suite delivers recruitment, applicant tracking, onboarding, position, and performance management. Schools such as Dartmouth College use the combined offerings to drive efficiency and improve hiring efforts.
“We have anywhere from 100 to 150 open positions at any time. Managing the hiring and reference-checking process for these positions can be incredibly difficult to do manually in a decentralized organizational structure,” said Ahmed Mohammed, director of talent acquisition at Dartmouth College. “SkillSurvey has improved the speed, consistency and quality of our reference checks, while PeopleAdmin’s automated applicant tracking system ensures that our hiring managers are organized and compliant.”
This partnership plans to extend to include integration capabilities in Q2 this year.
“Legacy systems can’t keep up with the pace, level of detail and efficiency today’s higher education institutions need,” said Jack Blaha, CEO of PeopleAdmin. “Working with SkillSurvey aligns with our mission to provide colleges and universities high-quality talent management technology and ongoing support to make better hiring decisions.”
Ray Bixler, CEO of SkillSurvey, added that the partnership has opened the door to a more dynamic and effective way to hire candidates for positions in higher education.
“We’re looking forward to furthering our relationship in the year ahead and watching our mutual customers achieve efficiencies around their hiring and retention processes, while tapping into better insights that aid hiring managers and selection committees in making decisions.”
