CIO VendorRobin Richards, CEO
Finding the “right talent for the right job” assures business growth and productivity. Over the last few years of technological innovation and the rise of social media, companies have been exposed to a myriad of tools and solutions to manage their HR related tasks. “Yet, things were stagnant, especially in the recruitment arena, where jobseekers continued the norm of approaching the destination site,” opines Robin Richards, CEO, CareerArc. Launched in the rubble of the recession, where layoffs were a quotidian affair and the impact of social media in the human capital space had just begun to turn its first tide, CareerArc pioneered the approach of “taking jobs to potential jobseekers. “The Burbank, CA-based firm is a software solutions provider that aims to address the most perplexing quandaries around recruitment and outplacement against the backdrop of global talent shortage.

CareerArc’s Employer Branding software is a disruptive solution that combines social recruiting and universal outplacement to enable employers to have more control of their hiring process as well as protect their brand image. “Our software is designed with the knowledge that employees past and present, are voicing their opinion on their existing and former employers and influencing their reputation in real time,” affirms Richards. CareerArc’s software allows the employer to amplify their brand value and simultaneously leverage social and digital media to attract, hire and transition their workforce. “This way, our software is revolutionizing both social recruiting and outplacement design and delivery, helping thousands of companies take charge of their employer brand,” extols Richards.
