Simpeo and GoodJob Partner for New Talent Offering

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (via PR Newswire):
March 16, 2021 

BIRMINGHAM, ALA

Today, Simpeo and GoodJob™ announced a partnership that will help companies find and retain top talent. The offering, called Simpeo On-Demand Talent, powered by GoodJob, provides the PEO’s clients with the best candidates as identified by GoodJob’s proprietary AI technology. Simpeo, one of the fastest growing PEOs in the country, will immediately begin offering the solution to its clients.

GoodJob launched its revolutionary hiring platform in June of 2020. The company’s proprietary PATH Assessment™ and innovative matching algorithms determine if people will be successful in job roles  by “cloning” the traits of top performers. The platform simplifies and speeds up the hiring process by enabling employers to identify candidates who have the best chance of success at the very beginning of the process.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) estimates that a bad hire costs five times their annual salary, including the cost to replace them, training time and expense, lost revenue and missed opportunities, harm to the brand and co-worker morale, and termination costs. Harvard Business Review estimates that 80% of turnover is due to bad hires, making these costs astronomical.

“Our clients are passionate about their employees and want to make hires who contribute to the culture of their organizations and have long, successful careers in their roles,” said Blake Patterson, founder and CEO of Simpeo. “The GoodJob platform gives our clients a competitive advantage by helping them find the best talent to create those long-term relationships.”

“Our partnership with Simpeo will enable the GoodJob platform to reach hundreds of companies and thousands of candidates in the near term,” said Stephen D. Johnston, CEO of GoodJob. “We’re excited to help Simpeo expand their service offering and help their clients immediately benefit from our technology.”

Professional employer organizations (PEOs) offer a range of services for small and medium-sized businesses, including payroll, benefits, HR, and compliance. This new partnership will allow Simpeo to expand into talent services with a value proposition unavailable to competitors — the ability to scientifically predict winning candidates.

GoodJob uses machine-learning AI and the PATH Assessment to easily find candidates who are the best match for an organization’s job roles, helping companies hire and retain top talent. Learn more at goodjob.io

GoodJob Secures $3M in Funding: Hiring AI company eyes nationwide expansion.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (via PR Newswire):
January 27, 2021 

BIRMINGHAM, ALA – GoodJob today announced that it has raised $3M to fuel marketing and sales efforts in major markets across the U.S. 

Finding the right candidates has become even more difficult in a remote-first environment where traditional job boards deliver resumes by the pound. GoodJob is transforming the recruiting industry by using psychology and data science to cut through the clutter to improve time-to-hire and retention rates by quickly identifying the right candidates. 

The company launched its web and mobile apps in June of 2020, primarily targeting the Birmingham, Ala. market. “Birmingham has been an ideal jumping-off point for us,” says CEO Stephen D. Johnston. “We’ve gotten great feedback from clients here that we’ve used to improve the product for a national audience.”

The two most popular tools for companies have been the vetting feature, which uses GoodJob’s machine-learning AI to quickly sort and filter candidates in a company’s pipeline and spot the best matches, and the PATH Assessment™, which allows companies to “clone” their top performers.

“GoodJob’s solution is ideal for today’s market. Prior to an interview and without introducing bias, employers can quickly assess a candidate’s fit on the front end of the hiring process.” said Johnston. “This approach allows companies to spend time only on candidates who have a high probability of success, which significantly impacts hiring efficiency, especially as companies move to no-touch hiring practices.”

GoodJob for Candidates is available now in the App Store and Google Play. GoodJob for Employers is available online at http://goodjob.io/.
