01 Intelligent HR Recruiter – Intelligent HR Recruiter

What?

Sydney company Intelligent HR Recruiter has just launched its flagship software product, Intelligent HR Recruiter (the same as the company name), a cutting edge situational employee mapping solution that provides both present and potential employee background information.

Whether we are talking about false resumes and references, non-existent qualifications, connection to past employees, hidden criminal records, substance or gambling abuse problems, false ID’s, terrorist affiliations or even links to rival companies, Intelligent HR Recruiter will provide all the information any serious business needs to survive in today’s modern and complex business landscape.

Why?

The biggest threat to any organisation comes not from technology, but from people. That is, people from within any organisation provide the biggest potential to have a negative impact on security and profitability than people outside of its doors.

Unique selling point?

Intelligent HR Recruiter gives any organisation - big, small or in-between, government or private, local or multinational the power to control its risk and in turn, its future by ensuring that there are no ‘anomalies’ between who they have actually recruited and who these employees claim they are.

02 Employer Brand Works – Stand Out

What?

Based in the US but now engaging in the Australian market, Employer Brand Works is dedicated to working with organisations to improve employer brand, to attract, engage and retain the kind of talent that organisations need in order to achieve their business goals.

Why?

With 60 per cent of employees planning to leave their firms as the economy improves, creating a stand out Best Place to Work makes even more business sense.

The ADVantage method (Authentic, Differentiated, Valued) is designed to help employers achieve a brand that embraces and is embraced. A brand that can achieve the extraordinary, and most importantly, a brand that delivers on its promises.

Unique selling point?

Failing to attract, engage and retain first-rate talent affects your bottom line. By engaging a Best Places to Work expert, employers can identify and brand the uniqueness of their company, consistently attract the most talented people in the industry and retain employees to secure an competitive edge.
