Our new job-matching platform finally has a name: RealTime Talent Exchange.
This cutting edge, web-based tool is designed to blind-matching the needs of Minnesota’s employers with quality candidates at all phases of the talent pipeline. Under the leadership of Senator Terri Bonoff and building upon the successful Minnesota PIPELINE Project, the RealTime Talent Exchange seeks to further its momentum with this regional, tech-based partnership.
Powered by WorkFountain technology, the goal of the RealTime Talent Exchange is to engage key regional and state business associations, trade groups, governmental programs, workforce development and placement efforts, educational institutions and training programs in a centralized, “no wrong door” approach to connecting with compatible experiential-learning talent. This powerful network of data-driven web platforms allows employers, non-profits, and government agencies to band together to build talent pipelines that serve them individually, while simultaneously strengthening the region as a whole.
With the support of the Minnesota Office of Higher Education in launching this pilot, RealTime Talent will leverage the technology platform to:
- Create efficiencies in regional recruiting practices
- Reduce hiring bias, which increases workplace diversity
- Provide real-time data on candidate pools, industry activity, and skills alignments
- Increase time- and cost-savings in recruitment efforts for employers of all sizes
With a variety of ways to participate, RealTime Talent is seeking regional partners in education and industry to promote and benefit from this new platform. We are aiming to launch the site in November, with full functionality coming in January 2017.
