Comcast to Share How Partnership with Jibe Has Transformed the Company’s Hiring via Mobile Recruiting; Jibe Customers Microsoft and Informatica Also Set to Speak
NEW YORK – September 30, 2014 – Jibe, Inc., a leading recruitment technology company, today announced its plans for the 2014 HR Technology Conference, the industry’s largest event focused solely on the latest technology innovations in HR and talent acquisition. Comcast Cable’s Vice President of talent acquisition, Raúl J. Valentín, will join Jibe CEO and Founder Joe Essenfeld on stage in a breakout session to share how the companies have worked together to revolutionize the global media and technology giant’s hiring practice through mobile apply and recruiting analytics. Jibe customers Microsoft and Informatica will also share their stories from the Jibe booth (#2234).
Jibe’s recently-released 2014 Talent Acquisition Survey revealed that 70 percent of today’s job seekers want and expect to use their mobile devices to not only search for open positions, but to apply to them as well. Yet the same survey revealed that adoption of mobile recruiting within the corporate world is still lagging. That is not the case for Comcast, a clear early adopter and first mover in the mobile recruiting revolution. Valentín and Essenfeld will share the story of their journey in a breakout session on Wednesday, October 8th at 11:00 a.m. PST.
“Delivering an optimal candidate experience is the end goal for any recruiting organization, and that means ensuring that you meet and exceed the expectations of today’s job seekers, making it easy to engage and apply regardless of the technology being used,” commented Valentín. “Your recruiting practices and how you attract and engage candidates is an overall extension of your company’s brand, so it’s crucial to get it right. We found Jibe to be the perfect partner to help us achieve that goal, and are excited to share our story at this year’s HR Technology Conference.”
In addition to its joint presentation with Comcast, Jibe will be displaying its full suite of cloud-enabled, mobile-first recruiting software solutions.
Jibe Apply – Recognized as the industry benchmark in mobile recruiting, Jibe Apply allows job seekers to submit completed applications from any device — smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop – ensuring employers offer a consistent and optimal candidate experience.
Jibe Recruiting Analytics – Recognized at last year’s conference as one of a select few “Awesome New Technologies for HR,” Recruiting Analytics gives recruitment professionals the insight they need to make better hiring decisions.
Jibe Candidate Connect – Jibe’s talent network allows job seekers of any kind – passive or active – to quickly and easily connect with employers while giving talent acquisition professionals the tools they need to seamlessly conduct effective, targeted outreach programs.
Jibe Post – Jibe Post enables quick and easy distribution to any job board, backed by powerful analytics to better understand which channels are working to maximize ROI of a company’s recruitment marketing spend.
Lastly, Jibe will roll out its latest game-changing solution, Jibe Insights, at this year’s HR Technology Conference. Details will be made public at the Conference. Attendees can visit Booth 2234 to learn more.
“The HR Technology® Conference continues as the world’s largest gathering of people that care about HR technology and as a showcase for how leading organizations around the world are solving business problems and driving improved performance with technology,” said Co-Chair Steve Boese. “The Conference provides HR professionals with the opportunity to hear, meet, and learn from dozens of HR and organizational leaders first-hand as well as connect with all the leading HR technology solution providers in one place. HR Tech has simply become a “must-attend” event for HR leaders.”
“If we’re about one thing at Jibe, it’s delivering the ultimate in candidate experience,” said Essenfeld. “To work with companies like Comcast, who understand the importance of delivering that experience to candidates, and to have the opportunity to share our story together with them at a venue as esteemed as the HR Technology Conference is a distinct pleasure and honor. We’re looking forward to the show more than ever this year.”
