Mogul Launches Groundbreaking New Talent Acquisition Feature That Filters Candidates by Veteran and Disability Status

Mogul | November 15, 2021

Mogul News
Mogul, a disruptor in the HR Tech and executive recruiting industry specializing in diversity, announced that it has launched a groundbreaking, patent-pending new feature on its talent acquisition software that will support recruiters in building diverse pipelines by sorting 430 Million candidates by veteran and disability status.

“Our new filters are a game-changer in this industry. Recruiters can now access millions of candidates in 195 countries, with never-before-seen specificity in search results. In literally a few seconds, recruiters can access the profiles of millions of top candidates who are veterans or identify as disabled.”

- Tiffany Pham, CEO, and Founder, Mogul

A Case for Hiring Veterans

According to a study cited by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), veterans on average, perform at higher levels within an organization and are less prone to turnover. Analysis showed a resulting cost savings of approximately $325,000 per year for businesses that hired veterans as 25% of its workforce. Companies hiring veterans may also be eligible for a federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit.

A Case for Hiring Disabled Workers

According to a report published by Accenture in 2018, companies that prioritized disability inclusion policies and practices had 28 percent higher revenue, double the net income, and 30 percent higher economic profit margins over a four-year period of time in which they were studied. Disabled workers represent an untapped talent pool of 10.7 million people.

Before launching its new disability and veteran filters, the Mogul platform allowed recruiters to easily sort candidates by gender and ethnicity. Additionally, Mogul’s talent acquisition platform does not limit the number of candidates in a search. According to Pham, no other talent acquisition software offers anything even remotely similar.

Mogul’s entry into talent acquisition software in 2020 has given recruiters an alternative way to search for talent; many mainstream talent acquisition systems have algorithms that favor white male candidates in search results or limit the number of candidates who can be sought for a role. Additionally, Mogul offers patent-pending diversity filters that allow recruiters to search for candidates by gender, ethnicity, and other diverse characteristics.

Venterra Realty's 2021 Technology Innovations Mobilize Workforce, Empower Employees

Venterra Realty | December 28, 2021

Venterra Realty continues to invest in mobile technologies for enhanced employee processes and productivity, which has successfully resulted in improved employee flexibility, efficiencies, and job satisfaction. Since its inception, Venterra has maintained a focus on enabling its workforce to create opportunities for internal job growth and is on the front lines of building an environment where skilled people seek to be employed. One of the ways that Venterra has set itself apart in its ability to maintain a highly-skilled workforce is an emphasis on making work-life easier by leveraging solutions to support a mobile workforce, reducing tedious tasks, and allowing for time to be spent completing meaningful responsibilities. "It is no secret that Venterra's culture is appealing to potential and current colleagues. A large part of our culture is about implementing innovative solutions to enable our people to be successful in their role, and for our people in onsite roles. Specifically, this means freeing them from the desk and office and enabling them with tools, technology, and real-time data to make decisions while they are out on the property, meeting with residents, doing inspections, completing service requests, etc. Behind our technology-first approach is the fact that we care deeply about the daily lives of our colleagues and are always considering how we can leverage mobile and digital tools to improve their satisfaction. At the end of the day, people want to feel like they made an impact. Providing efficiencies enables them to get to impact faster and more often. " -Stephanie Gonzalez, Vice President of Innovations. To double-down on mobilizing Venterra's frontlines and Property Operations, Venterra has added dual function, mobile computing platforms to enable on-site staff to manage their properties while away from their desks and offices, a proprietary mobile app for property management teams is also available for those that prefer a smaller device, are on the go, or want to stay productive from their phones, eliminating the need for return trips to the office; and smart home automation products, to support key-less digital apartment access for community managers and maintenance people, eliminating trips to the office for keys. These not only impact colleague satisfaction, but they also have a significant impact on resident satisfaction. "Response and resolution times have never mattered more to consumers, so when you have access to everything you need and can reach resolution in real time, while out on property, without having to return to the office, that translates to real value for our residents which translates to more satisfied residents. Bottom line, make things easier and solve problems faster for your customers and they will love you for it," Gonzalez adds. "A key benefit of our technology stack is that we built it ourselves. Our PMS, mobile property operations app, resident app, and our CRM are therefore fully integrated, so we can adapt much more quickly to accommodate new ways of working," - Andrew Basso, Vice President of Technology. In addition to specific support for property-oriented operations, Venterra has also invested in tools that support the broader workforce. This includes class-leading software platforms for collaboration, planning, and cloud-based analytics, along with an events platform that allows leaders to connect to engage in company-wide learning. Venterra is thereby able to constant meaningful content that team members can engage with on their schedule from the comfort of their homes. About Venterra Realty: Founded in 2001, Venterra Realty owns and manages approximately 70 communities and more than 20,000 apartment units across 13 major US cities that provide housing to over 40,000 people and 12,000 pets. The organization has completed $7.2 billion in real estate transactions and currently manages a portfolio of multi-family real estate assets valued at approximately $4.0 billion. Venterra is committed to improving the lives of its residents by delivering industry-leading customer experience.
