About Talent Sonar
Talent Sonar is a state-of-the-art talent acquisition tool that makes it easy to implement the 5 Best Hiring Practices. Companies that want to efficiently find the person who best fits each job from a broader, more qualified candidate pool choose Talent Sonar.
To tackle the challenge of hiring for right fit, Talent Sonar studied decades of hiring research before clarifying Talent Sonar’s core philosophy: Don’t try to change people with complex training on how to hire right. Just give them an easy-to-use tool that changes the hiring process to naturally optimize results.
Talent Sonar is the first and only tool that streamlines the 5 Best Hiring Practices in one simple web-based tool that is powered by artificial intelligence and works as a standalone solution or within a company’s ATS.
WITH TALENT SONAR, CLIENTS:
1 Prioritize job skills before recruiting.
2 Write inclusive job descriptions that attract the broadest representation of qualified candidates.
3 Sort resumes through blind resume review.
4 Perform structured interviews with the best candidates.
5 Rely on data-driven hiring decisions from a scoring engine.
Why is Talent Sonar so needed?
Research shows that corporations’ current method of hiring is significantly broken. Nearly half of all hires fail in the first 18 month. Further, this costs businesses an average of $26,830 per failed employee (due to recruiting costs, interviewing time, and training hours that sap company productivity).
To remain competitive, companies must also become great at identifying the best fits for their company from a broader talent pool. Today, women comprise 47% of the workforce and by 2020, minorities will compromise 40% of the workforce. Talent Sonar allows the best person to win, by focusing recruiters, hiring managers, and interviewers on the qualities that are most predictive of job success.
Talent Sonar: Quick History
Talent Sonar (originally named Unitive) was founded in 2014 by technologist Laura Mather, Ph.D. after she sold her cyber security company Silver Tail Systems to RSA for hundreds of millions of dollars and was named one of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs.
The talent acquisition software company received $8 million in Series A funding led by Ignition Partners, with additional investments from Kapor Capital, Webb Investment Network, Floodgate and Correlation Ventures.
In January 2017, Unitive acquired Talent Sonar, a vendor of blind resume review software that strengthened Unitive’s end-to-end hiring technology. In May 2017, Unitive changed its name to Talent Sonar to better convey the company’s mission to find the right fit in hiring.
