IQNavigator and Elevate form strategic alliance to streamline corporate recruiting
Building upon IQNavigator’s significant growth in the EMEA region, the partnership is focused on providing corporate hiring managers with an innovative, secure and cost-effective platform for sourcing, engaging and managing non-employee labour.
According to a recent report from the UK Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), 60 percent of organisations that had vacancies experienced recruitment difficulties in the last year and two-thirds reported they had noticed an increase in the number of unsuitable applicants. These issues are forcing recruiters to turn to technology to help reshape their recruitment efforts by adopting improved candidate and job matching abilities. This growing reliance on smart technology comes at a time when talent acquisition leaders are being asked to do more with less. In addition to addressing the widening gap between hiring volumes and budgets, they must also ensure compliance with the latest labour regulations recently introduced in the EU.
“Nurturing and maintaining a market-ready contractor workforce is a critical concern for corporate recruiters,” said Joe Juliano, president and CEO of IQNavigator. “With growing demand for new skills and more competition than ever for talent, reliance on non-employee labour is expected to climb significantly from current estimates of 25 to 30 percent of the workforce. Our alliance with Elevate lets our customers leverage the latest smart candidate matching technology to identify and directly secure contractor talent at lower cost and with faster results than current approaches.”
“While most corporate recruiters have a proven process and strategy for engaging permanent labour,” Dan Collier, Elevate CEO, explained, “they often rely on a variety of methods to contract non-employee labour – job boards, social media sites, career portals, warehoused talent and external agencies. This approach is time consuming, expensive and results in a lot of guesswork. By partnering with IQNavigator, we are streamlining and enhancing the process, providing recruiters with direct access to uniquely qualified talent, eliminating the guesswork, mitigating co-employment risk and filling vacancies faster.”
Through the alliance, joint customers can leverage the strengths of IQNavigator’s leading vendor management system, which enables more than 5.2 million users to manage more than $19.9 billion USD in annual spend for non-employees, along with Elevate’s industry-leading smart candidate management technology.
