On March 30th, premier people analytics platform, ChartHop announced the acquisition of people operations workflow builder, Gather, that enables teams to manage their employee experience. The acquisition allows ChartHop to expand its capabilities in the area of automated workflow throughout the employee journey. The automation will help reduce the amount of manual work for HR and people operations executives who are tasked with retaining employees and developing organizational culture.

"We've seen a big shift in employee expectations and the way people teams create a meaningful work culture. More than ever, companies need to understand and support employees at every stage of the employee lifecycle. They need to create new avenues for human connection across an otherwise disconnected employee base. ChartHop has been the first people analytics solution to provide a great experience for the whole company, not just the HR team. The acquisition of Gather rounds out our existing capabilities of supporting a positive employee journey, providing greater insight into the employee experience and making people teams more efficient."

- Ian White, founder and CEO of ChartHop

"At Gather, we changed the way that HR and People teams operated. Joining ChartHop, we're incredibly excited by the opportunity to empower every person at a company to turn their team's data into action. Pairing Gather's workflow capabilities with ChartHop's people analytics unlocks limitless possibilities for people leaders building out the future of the workplace."

- John Wetzel, CEO at Gather

Gather is the first company acquired by ChartHop since it was founded in 2019. The announcement comes on the heels of ChartHop securing Series B funding worth $35 million from investor Andreessen Horowitz in the second quarter of 2021. The company also partnered with Jobvite recently. It onboarded Matt Wolf as Chief Financial Officer, and Ivory Johnson as Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging.

McHire, Powered by Paradox, Adds AI-Powered Assessment Integration to Improve Employee Retention

Sprockets | September 02, 2021

McHire, powered by Paradox, the platform that McDonald's franchise operators trust to source, hire, and onboard new employees with fast, mobile-first experiences, now offers an integration with Sprockets to reveal who will perform like their best crew members and reduce bias in the workplace. This integration combines the speed of Paradox's McHire platform with the precision of Sprockets, an AI-powered solution that is proven to improve 90-day retention by 43%. It instantly predicts an applicant's likelihood to succeed and stay long-term using artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and over 80 years of psychological research. AJ Richichi, CEO of Sprockets, explained how the integration solves the challenges that franchisees currently face: "The QSR industry struggles with nearly 150% annual turnover, and COVID-19 has created new challenges that require equally different solutions. Sprockets helps managers navigate the changing labor dynamics and make sound hiring decisions. Our solution results in drastically reduced turnover, less time spent in the hiring process, and a better customer experience." Sprockets' software integrates directly with McHire to further streamline the hiring process, allowing GMs to focus more on daily operations. Richichi stated, "While McHire will remain as a tremendous way to source candidates, schedule interviews, extend offers, and more, the addition of Sprockets will help franchisees prescreen and hire the right people." Many McDonald's franchise operators have already improved retention with Sprockets, and now it's even easier for others to achieve the same results without having to log in to two different tools. This McHire integration is a big step for Sprockets as they improve the hiring experience for applicants and employers alike. Richichi states, "Aligning ourselves with influential technologies like McHire is validation that we're making progress in creating a more efficient and equitable hiring process in the hourly workforce. As we continue to scale, we are constantly looking for innovative partners with a shared mission to create positive change in the hourly workforce." About Paradox: Launched in 2016, Paradox is building the world's leading conversational recruiting software to drive automation with a human touch. Serving global clients with hiring needs across high-volume hourly and high-skilled professional roles, Paradox's conversational assistant Olivia does the work talent teams don't have time for streamlining tasks like screening, interview scheduling, and more through fast, easy, mobile-first interactions. In 2021, Paradox also acquired Traitify to include simple, visual personality assessments as part of its product offering.

Paradox Acquires Traitify to Further Streamline Hourly Hiring with Fast, Simple, Next-Generation Assessments

Paradox | August 24, 2021

Paradox, the conversational recruiting software helping global brands like Unilever and McDonald's simplify hiring through automation with a human touch, announced today the acquisition of Traitify — the world's fastest, mobile-first assessment platform. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition marks the latest milestone for Paradox, which was founded in 2016 and has experienced rapid growth since recently being ranked in the top 5% of the prestigious Inc. 5000 list of America's fastest-growing private companies. "Our goal has always been to build a software company that solves real problems for our clients," said Paradox founder and CEO, Aaron Matos. "I'm so proud of the work we've done to get to this point and thrilled to add Traitify to the team. They share our passion for recruiting and our philosophy that software should make things simpler, faster, and easier not add more work." Unlike traditional assessment technology, Traitify was built to be fast, visual, and mobile-first — increasing assessment completion rates to more than 96%. On average, candidates can finish Traitify's visual-based assessment in less than two minutes, generating insight on their own personality and helping employers better predict the candidate's suitability for the role. Traitify is already integrated with Paradox, serving joint clients like ResultsCX and McDonald's to work alongside core HCM platforms like Workday, iCims, and more. The company's growth took off in 2017 when Traitify launched the industry's first mobile-first assessment based on the Big Five framework — a model of personality backed by over 50 years of scientific research by I/O psychologists. "We're incredibly excited to join the Paradox team who share our passion for putting people front and center in the recruiting process. We've already seen tremendous success together, and this acquisition positions us to build the best experiences for candidates and talent acquisition teams across the globe," said Dan Sines, CEO & Co-Founder of Traitify. Paradox Chief Product Officer Adam Godson said the acquisition will serve an essential and powerful purpose: Removing hurdles for hourly candidates trying to find a job fast, and further simplifying hiring for managers and high-volume recruiting teams, who often operate under serious time constraints. "I've always subscribed to the idea that there's never a good time to make a bad hire," said Godson. "Traitify is playing a key role in helping its clients hire the best candidates for the job, faster and that's never been more important than right now in the high-volume hourly segment. I can't wait to see what our teams will do together."
