New Approach Results in 10X increase in Candidate Satisfaction, 32% reduction in time-to-hire
By Daneille Lerner
Toronto ON; March 28, 2016 – Until today, the process of finding your ideal career was often done based on gut instinct and what roles a job seeker found first. Candidates applied blindly to multiple open positions and never truly knew their strengths, weaknesses and whether they are a good fit for the role.
HR and Hiring managers face a similar challenge: recruiting and hiring the best candidate for an open position remained a long and inefficient process. Despite the best HR procedures, Hiring Managers are still forced to depend on gut instinct when offering a job to candidates, never truly knowing if the new hire will thrive within a company¹s culture until he or she undertakes the new position.
Enter Ideal.com, the online job marketplace that replaces gut instinct with predictive personality and cultural analytics. Using a proprietary assessment and matching engine, Ideal.com empowers candidates to learn about their unique strengths and ideal work environment, and pairs salespeople with roles that best match their individual skill sets, desired salary and location.

In addition to providing assessments, Ideal.com provides a wealth of additional resources for job seekers such as the ability to peruse detailed video profiles of companies who are hiring to get an authentic understanding of the culture of potential employers.

We realized that the recruiting and hiring process is one of the last corporate functions that has not been improved with technology,² said Shaun Ricci, Ideal.com Co-Founder and CEO. ³Resumes can be embellished and interviews can be marred by bias and often degenerate from honest consultation to an audition where candidates Œact the part.¹ The proven data analytics of Ideal.com help create an even playing field for all candidates and deliver greater efficiencies to the recruitment and hiring process.²
