Diversity-focused talent acquisition platform PowerToFly added a Candidate Search feature to its PowerPro product. Candidate Search will help customers identify and recruit candidates from underrepresented groups based on specific parameters like gender and ethnicity
The tool allows users to find, shortlist and engage potential candidates within a single search function. Its ability to identify candidates according to identity and skill markers provides search capabilities that aren’t available through traditional candidate-search tools, the company said.
PowerToFly uses proprietary self-reported data from 3.4 million diverse professionals to enhance candidate information. On average, traditional talent acquisition teams can spend up to four hours curating a list of 100 qualified, diverse profiles using tools like LinkedIn, the company said. PowerPro’s Candidate Search aims to significantly speed up the process.
“With the launch of Candidate Search, we are taking a crucial step forward in empowering companies to expand the pool of top talent they’re connecting with across all identity groups,” said PowertoFly CEO Milena Berry. “With this feature, companies can continue building teams that reflect the identity demographics of the communities they’re serving and do this faster than ever before.”
‘DEIB Across Functions’
PowerPro is a component of PowertoFly’s DEIB Business Suite, the company’s flagship product that was launched in April. The suite also offer PowerUp, a D&I learning suite offering on-demand training, insights and other resources.
At the time, Berry said the Business Suite would make “diversity recruiting easy and scalable for any company committed to doing better.” The company described the suite as a true SaaS platform developed around employers’ DEIB needs. “It will allow us to help our clients integrate DEIB across all business functions, in a way that is both cost effective and aligned with what the talent of today demands,” said President and Chief Revenue Officer Amy Kim.
PowertoFly’s customers include Northrup Grumman, Siemens, Morgan Stanley and Riot Games.
