SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2012) - As companies struggle to attract the talent they need for growth, a game-changing new company -- Entelo -- officially launches. Entelo offers a software solution that changes the playing field for sourcing and recruiting candidates. Founded by serial entrepreneurs Jon Bischke and John McGrath, previous veterans of venture-backed companies and successful exits, Entelo promises to revolutionize recruiting.
Company co-founder Jon Bischke commented, "The world's fastest growing companies are starved for talent. Job boards often don't produce the desired results and the process of searching for passive candidates can be tedious and time-consuming. Entelo changes all of that by combining the signal of an active job seeker with the breadth and depth of the passive candidate pool."
Entelo's platform consists of two products -- Entelo Sonar and Entelo Search -- that offer a new way to recruit for tough-to-fill roles.
Entelo Sonar identifies passive candidates who are likely to be open to new opportunities. Entelo's patent-pending algorithm analyzes more than 70 variables to predict when passive candidates are starting to think about career moves. Entelo customers receive email alerts with relevant candidates who show signs of coming to market.
Entelo Search is a searchable database of more than three hundred million profiles and offers recruiters and talent acquisition professionals a three-dimensional view of candidates. This information is aggregated from social and professional communities such as GitHub, Stack Overflow, Twitter, Quora, Dribbble, GrabCad and many other websites. Recruiters learn about candidates in a more efficient fashion, leading to opportunities for more customized and humanizing interactions.
Bischke continued, "We analyze dozens of variables, both at the company and individual level. Things like stock price fluctuations, high-profile departures, acquisitions and layoff announcements all are factors in the movement of talent. In addition, data such as social networking activity, length of time at current company, sentiment analysis and many other data points correlate with a person's likelihood of being open to a new career opportunity."
Entelo will officially unveil its solutions at next week's 15th Annual HR Technology® Conference, which is being held on October 8-10, 2012 in Chicago. Visit booth 764 to learn more about Entelo.
