Gild reveals business intelligence tool for hiring

3/06/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


Gild, which powers the way companies find, engage and evaluate tech talent with data and intelligence has developed a new tool to apply business intelligence (BI) to such processes. Gild will make its Business Intelligence for Hiring solution available through The Gild Platform, replacing the need for firms to utilise expensive and external platforms. Companies will also be able to benefit from predictive analytics, as well as insights throughout the hiring process.

Analytical tools for the hiring process traditionally require additional BI modules, not to mention manual maintenance and data input, and the resulting reports are based on limited information and offer only a brief insight into hiring; however, Business Intelligence for Hiring gathers its data automatically, presenting information into graphical reports that can be easily customised. This means executives can view data by job role and make use of regularly-updated data; in addition, there are number of easy report wizards, allowing even the most unskilled worker to become a BI expert and gain deep insights into a business’s hiring landscape.

Another huge benefit is that users can compare results against other firms, allowing a benchmark performance to be found. This allows hirers to customise their dashboard and make decisions with even more strategic information.

Gild’s chief executive, Sheeroy Desai, said: “There's a sea change coming to talent acquisition that's similar to the transformation marketing automation tools created in how companies go to market. By arming each person involved in the hiring process with the real-time information to become more effective, Business Intelligence for Hiring eliminates the need for a dedicated business analyst or costly, separate BI application.” Mr Desai adds that the BI tool allows everyone to see the most important data and gives insights into information that is never normally seen.

Speaking about the solution’s ease-of-use, chief technology officer Luca Bonmassar said that Gild had designed the tool to be automated, simple and relevant for multiple roles, thereby widening its use. “We started with a library of drag-and-drop custom reports, but savvy users like developers can also write their own queries and use our IDE for easy integration with things like a third-party onboarding application. By making the solution both personalised and agile, it's easy to tailor it to each customer's specific needs,” he explained.

With the recruitment process being so costly, it is vital to ensure the right candidates are chosen. With the latest tool, executives have even more data to ensure that they make the right decision.

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
