Alexander Mann to Launch Hiring Platform for Hourly Workers

Kitchen Staff

Alexander Mann Solutions announced Hourly, a platform that helps employers identify and hire hourly workers. The product, the first which the company has built for itself, offers a mobile-based, conversational-style interface.

The company said the product’s genesis began with its acquisition of Karen HR in 2019. Karen HR developed a “cognitive recruiting assistant” that integrates with existing ATS systems to rank resumes against job openings and engage with jobseekers via chat or SMS. At the time, AMS said the acquisition would extend its engineering capabilities and support growth. It also was the catalyst for creating AMS’s product division.

Hourly was designed and built specifically to facilitate hiring of hourly workers, AMS said. That means, for one thing, that it can handle high volumes of candidates. Users access the product by participating in a conversation that allows them to research roles, participate in Zoom interviews, and make and receive offers.

The product also includes a brief, embedded visual assessment from Traitify, which personalizes its use for both hiring managers and candidates.

AMS said it worked with an advisory group of global brands to design the product. Hourly will be available in May 2020.

“Today, we recognize organizations are operating with a high level of uncertainty about the future of business and their people,” said AMS CEO David Leigh. “We designed Hourly with an eye towards radically improving the candidate experience for hourly job seekers, and now we’re seeing just how essential this part of the paid workforce is to the economy.” He called Hourly “an enabling technology” for companies that are transforming processes and preparing to rebuild their workforce as the economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to its technology platform, Hourly offers a programmatic media package, implementation services and live support.
