Indeed to support up to 2 skills assessments in job ads

Indeed | January 16, 2020

Indeed is expanding its Indeed Assessments tool, allowing employers to add two skills tests to their job postings, the company announced Jan. 16. The feature is rolling out to U.S. employers and is currently free to use. Both recruiters and job seekers believe skills are a better indication of a candidate's ability than credentials, according to an Indeed survey released with the announcement. In the poll of more than 500 employers and 500 job seekers, Indeed found that 41% of job-seekers said their education isn't directly tied to the field in which they work or are conducting their job search. Survey results also showed that 55% of respondents with recruiting responsibilities think resumes fall short of allowing candidates to be effectively evaluated, and even more (58%) are more likely to advance candidates when they can show they have the desired skills. Among job seekers, nearly three-quarters want to prove they have the skills required for a job, and more than half would be more confident about applying for a job if they could prove they have the skills to do it.

Leapsome, the people enablement platform that drives employee engagement, performance, and learning, today announces its expansion into the US market with the launch of its NYC office. The need for an on-the-ground US presence speaks to the rapid growth of the HR technology market globally, which is projected to grow from US$24.04 billion in 2021 to 35.66 billion in 20381. Today’s business leaders are more in tune with the value of people enablement and recognize that they cannot sustainably scale their organizations without developing their people. “The US software market is the largest in the world, and companies here are already focusing more on the potential of the people enablement category than in the European market. We currently generate 20% of our revenue from the US. Now, with our team on the ground in NYC, we hope to significantly increase our market share and continue to scale Leapsome into a global brand. It is our goal to shape the future of the HR tech market.

Jenny Podewils, Leapsome’s Co-CEO, will relocate from Berlin to NYC to scale the company’s US operations.

I’m excited about this new chapter in Leapsome’s and my founder journey. Our successful Co-CEO model provides us the unique opportunity to commit, at leadership level, to both markets. With Kajetan in Berlin and me scaling the US business in New York, we underline our ambition to build a global company and global category. The NYC office will enable Leapsome to provide local support for its growing US customer base, allowing the company to further its mission to make work more fulfilling for everyone — everywhere.
