Enable Committees to Make Efficient, Fair Decisions

Give your search committees tools that let them spend their time on reviewing applicants, rather than on accessing materials or letters, confirming search status, and keeping track of notes. Free up professional services staff to spend time assisting academics in the ways that are most valuable.

Deliver on Academic Diversity and Inclusion Efforts

Inform every academic hire with data on real-time, self-reported, anonymous demographic survey responses from 100% of applicants. Establish custom, explicit criteria for evaluating applicants. Empower authorized administrators to intervene in insufficiently diverse searches.

Recruit New Colleagues Strategically and Effectively

Slice and compare a wide variety of data points about applications received—and positions offered—to understand patterns of attraction toward your institution (or lack thereof) among the academic job market. Understand where applicants are finding your job listings. Build a backlog of competitive candidates for future searches.

Make Academic Hiring Equitable, Responsible, Consistent

Establish a source of truth and enforce standards for how academic hiring should take place across your institution. Ensure recruitment activity runs through the proper pre-hire and post-hire approval workflows. Give senior academic officers visibility into the facts around hiring researchers and instructors.
