PredictiveHire | January 06, 2022
PredictiveHire, creator of the world's first Smart Interviewer, today announced Nick Bosch is joining the company as its Head of Growth, North America. In this new role Bosch will lead sales, partnerships and customer success within North America.
The appointment of Bosch is off the back of a huge year for PredictiveHire, with the Australian-headquartered company growing by 300% in the last 12 months, with 25% of that growth coming from the US and EMEA. They have helped over 1.2million candidates apply for jobs across 47 countries.
"There is simply no other interview-product like ours in the US and given the current intense need for talent at all levels there we're truly excited to show what our Smart Interviewer, Phai, is capable of, Bosch was the perfect person to help lead the charge into the US market with his background in HR Tech, as both a co-founder of Reschedge, overseeing its rapid growth leading to the acquisition by HireVue, and having been a key sales leader at Beamery. "
-PredictiveHire CEO Barb Hyman
Bosch said he signed on to the role as soon as he saw the product and spoke to customers about the impact it was having in their organizations.
"This is the simplest yet most sophisticated way to deliver quality candidates to companies - while saving time and money. Companies short of talent don't need to sacrifice quality if they use Phai. I'm looking forward to being part of PredictiveHire transforming how talent decisions are made in the US and Canada."
Hyman said PredictiveHire addressed three big challenges facing many US companies right now - it creates a fair hiring experience helping companies deliver on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion ; it lives up to the market expectations of a candidate-centric approach; and it solves for the need-for-speed in hiring.
PredictiveHire's mission is to help companies unlock and engage talent at scale. Aiming to deliver the world's Smartest Interviewer, Phai, powered by the world's largest source of 1st party proprietary text data and advanced Natural Language Processing, we turn simple text conversations into unprecedented talent intelligence enabling organisations. We interrupt hiring bias at scale, get to the right talent fast and give every candidate an experience they love.
Talent Systems | June 20, 2022
Talent Systems®, the software provider for casting and auditioning that connects talent and their representatives with casting directors, has acquired the eTribez Casting Platform, becoming the leading source worldwide for reality television talent casting. It has also acquired Staff Me Up, the leading production crew professional network with a heavy focus on unscripted productions. With these additions, Talent Systems can provide unscripted shows with all of the tools they need to fully cast and crew their productions.
The eTribez Casting Platform, previously led by eTribez CEO Eli Abayan, has been used to cast some of the most recognizable reality shows around the globe, including "Survivor," "Big Brother," "Idol," "Love Island," and "MasterChef." Staff Me Up, led by CEO Jared Tobman, is the top professional network for hiring qualified crew members and creatives and also developed Coded for Inclusion, which works with diversity advocacy organizations and studios, including A+E Networks, Warner Bros. Discovery, Banijay Americas and Amazon Studios, to improve inclusive hiring for historically underrepresented groups.
"These acquisitions extend the Talent Systems offerings into the reality TV vertical through both talent casting and crew staffing, We are also excited to continue to grow and support Coded for Inclusion in collaboration with the Staff Me Up team."
-Talent Systems Co-CEOs Alex Amin and Rafi Gordon.
More than 8 million people have registered with the eTribez Casting Platform. This end-to-end software offers talent a secure front-end registration system, and helps casting directors, production companies, and networks manage the tens of thousands of applications one reality show may receive. Staff Me Up connects 350,000 crew freelancers to exclusive production jobs at more than 3,000 networks, studios and production companies, and its staff of nine will join the Talent Systems team.
Later this year, the eTribez Casting Platform will be rebranded under the Talent Systems portfolio while eTribez will continue to independently run its separate Production Management Platform. In the coming months, Staff Me Up will expand its hiring and networking platform, which currently focuses on unscripted crew, into scripted TV and film production.
Talent Systems is the parent company of Cast It Systems, Casting Networks®, Spotlight, Casting Frontier, and Modasphere. These platforms, along with the eTribez Casting Platform and Staff Me Up, will continue to operate independently while leveraging each other's technology.
iCIMS | April 29, 2022
iCIMS, the talent cloud company, has been named a Strategic Leader in the 2022 Fosway 9-Grid for Talent Acquisition. Fosway recognized iCIMS for providing a rich suite of capabilities across a broad scope of features and having the sophistication to meet the needs of complex, enterprise-scale customers such as Air France and Deutsche Bank.
At the close of 2021, there was a 97-point gap between job openings and job applications, the widest seen in the previous two years. iCIMS data shows that job openings are up 86%, hires are up 45% and job applications are down 11% from pre-pandemic levels (Q4 2021 v. Q1 2020). Business leaders and HR professionals have been forced to rethink how they attract, engage, hire and advance talent and they are looking for the right technology partners to help them reach their goals.
iCIMS' leading positioning in the analysis recognizes the company as a premier global talent platform.
The Fosway 9-Grid™, EMEA's only market analysis model for talent, is driven by this demand for analysis and is designed for global companies.

iCIMS' leading positioning in the analysis recognizes the company as a premier global talent platform, citing iCIMS' strong market performance and customer advocacy in Europe. iCIMS continues to innovate to support the complex hiring needs of enterprise companies, most recently through:
Acquisition of Candidate.ID to bring marketing automation to talent acquisition: iCIMS recently acquired the Scotland-based company to empower recruiting teams to hyper-target best fit, most engaged candidates with unique lead scoring and automated marketing campaigns. Candidate.ID was also recognized by Fosway Group for its strong suite of solutions and customer advocacy.
Launch of the Opportunity Marketplace: Earlier this year iCIMS announced general availability of its internal mobility solution to help talent teams reengage, retain and advance employees.
Applied intelligence: iCIMS is leading the market with state-of-the-art technologies, including its patented Ensemble AI, to make it easier for candidates to find relevant roles, get hired and develop their career path. Its AI-powered job matching and conversational AI capabilities intelligently connect people with the right jobs, using the ensemble stacking method to improve accuracy and reduce bias.
Focus on innovative, hyper-personalized experience: Talent teams can now convert more talent with dynamic video content that can be shared across various channels throughout the talent journey to tell the right stories at the right time.
"Hiring difficulties are a global phenomenon and we are faced with new disruptions every day. The labor and skills shortages aren't going away anytime soon, Having the right people is critical to success and businesses need access to innovative technology to keep up with these changes. We're proud to see iCIMS named as a Strategic Leader in the 2022 Fosway 9-Grid for Talent Acquisition.
