Salary.com Releases Job Architect: A Powerful Job Description Management Tool For Business Accomplishments

Salary.com | June 04, 2020

  • Salary.com, a leading SaaS provider of cloud-based compensation data, software, and analytics, released Job Architect.

  • A powerful job description management tool to keep job descriptions accurate and up-to-date — adding velocity to hiring the right people at the right pay.

  • Job Architect simplifies the creation, sharing, and approval of job descriptions to help ensure the right individuals are in the right roles.


Job Architect can be used as a stand-alone product or as an integrated part of Salary.com's leading CompAnalyst® platform.

Job descriptions are often created and stored in silos throughout an organization, creating challenges to hiring velocity and the overall strategy of talent management that often leads to the inaccurate pricing of jobs. Worse yet, over time, poor job descriptions make it difficult to retain valuable talent because compensation structures and skills sets are misaligned with the organization's needs or expectations of employees.

We're seeing unprecedented upheaval in how companies are defining jobs and managing the work that people do. Job Architect helps companies manage their job content library to get job descriptions right and optimize the performance of their people.

- Kent Plunkett, founder and CEO of Salary.com


Salary.com's Job Architect helps HR and compensation professionals standardize a job architecture which is foundational to company performance, transparency, and employee engagement. Job Architect brings the power of a central command center for managing job descriptions and automating the process of market pricing jobs, This comprehensive solution streamlines workflows allowing for efficient review and approval cycles and enables collaboration among key company stakeholders from management, to hiring managers, talent acquisition and recruiters, all of whom have roles in achieving job architecture accuracy.

Because Job Architect is fully integrated with the CompAnalyst® platform organizations can make better pay decisions. Getting pay right with accurate job descriptions builds the foundation for career planning, pay transparency, and a high performing organization.

Cooleaf Launches New Survey Tool to Measure eNPS (Employee Net Promoter Score)

Cooleaf | July 14, 2022

Cooleaf, the leading employee experience platform for high-performing teams, has introduced a new feature to help customers measure and boost their employee engagement. With Cooleaf's pulse survey tool, customers will now be able to easily schedule and deploy eNPS surveys to measure employee loyalty and collect actionable insights. What is eNPS? NPS, or Net Promoter Score, is a key metric to measure brand experience. NPS measures the likelihood of employees, customers, or to recommend your business to others with a one-question survey. For the employee experience, Employee Net Promoter Score, or eNPS, is measured by asking, "How likely is it that you would recommend our company to a friend or colleague?" Survey respondents are sorted into Promoters, Detractors, or Passives based on their answer, and eNPS is calculated by subtracting the percentage of Detractors from the percentage of Promoters. The shortness and simplicity of the eNPS survey makes it ideal for setting goals around employee engagement. "Employee Net Promoter Score is the quick and standard way to track employee loyalty and satisfaction within an organization, Now that the eNPS survey is built into the Cooleaf platform, we can help our customers deploy the survey on a regular basis and benchmark results over time. Organization leaders and HR teams can filter that data by team or department, and use it to drive their engagement strategy. When you combine that data with the engagement initiatives and tactics that Cooleaf provides, eNPS becomes a very powerful tool for improving company culture." -Jess White, Senior Director of Customer Success How it works HR leaders can access the eNPS survey tool within Cooleaf's Manager Dashboard. It only takes a few seconds to set up the survey, review the questions, and select your survey timeframe. To improve your survey participation score, teams can also choose to award Cooleaf Reward Points for anonymous survey completion. Watch this video to learn more. Once the survey has been deployed, managers can see the results, download reports, and track trends over time.

Indeed launches ‘#HireBetter’ brand campaign to address SMB job challenges in India

Indeed | September 22, 2022

Indeed, the world’s #1 jobs site has unveiled a new campaign, ‘Don't just hire, HIRE BETTER’. Through a series of humorous videos, Indeed’s new campaign highlights the issues that companies face if one does not rely on proper recruitment tools to hire employees. The ad campaign goes live in 6 key cities - Delhi NCR, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Indore, Patna, Lucknow and multiple local languages. The series consists of three ads and showcases hilarious goof-ups when hiring through referrals in three different scenarios. The concept pulls from the insight that while there’s a shift in online recruitment for SMBs, oftentimes SMBs still rely on their 1st party sources to hire. In fact, data from Indeed’s survey showcased that 7 out of 10 SMBs in India prefer hiring employees through personal references. The videos and print ads show a humorous approach to workplace scenarios gone wrong when hiring outside of Indeed. Conceptualized and created by DDB Mudra the ad campaign is directed by Vivek Kakkad. The ad films and creatives will be spread across various digital and print platforms that employers and job seekers choose to watch such as YouTube and physical press across regional and national newspapers. The need to hire better Though the past couple of years have been challenging for SMBs, many of them have used the pandemic as an opportunity to lay the foundation for a strong digital future. Traditionally, SMBs have been competing continuously with not just other small businesses but also large enterprises for talent. They tend to have an attitude of choosing resources based on personal relationships such as ‘Chacha ka ladka bahut hoshiyaar hai’ which is showcased in this ad campaign. To compete successfully in the era of digitization, a skilled workforce is the need of the hour, making it all the more important for SMBs to hire the right talent to aid in their transformative growth journey. Indeed for SMBs bring hiring solutions within reach of Indian entrepreneurs. SMBs can access Indeed’s vast pool of job seekers and use Indeed’s unique products and features to find the right fit for their business. Indeed, the world’s #1 job site is set to transform the recruitment process for small and medium businesses in India. In its bid to connect emerging companies with the right talent, Indeed India offers its unique platform, attracting over 250 million job seekers, to budding entrepreneurs, in order to address their hiring needs. The Small and Medium Business sector forms an integral part of the economy, making a significant contribution toward integral economic indicators such as the nation’s GDP and employment, to name a few. The rapid growth of the sector has resulted in job creation across various sectors. “Our campaign is focused on reaching out to SMBs - the high-growth market in India. This campaign will address their concerns regarding hiring employees, through a series of relatable films which resonate with them. Indeed provides easy hiring solutions for SMBs and aims to constantly innovate to help these companies find the right talent through its platform,” said Nishita Lalvani, Director, Indeed India and SEA. “Hiring in small and medium businesses in India gets done through word of mouth over legitimate channels. And this may turn out to be a problem since the owners appoint employees with mediocre aptitude, causing potential losses for the businesses. The objective of this campaign was to target SMB owners specifically and encourage them to subscribe to the platform. Thus, changing their typical approach towards hiring and their standard practice of appointing someone they know instead of hiring someone who knows what to do,” said Sooraj R Pillai, Senior Creative Director, DDB Mudra According to Indeed’s survey data, SMBs are expected to create 2 million jobs in the next 5 years. The Indian hiring ecosystem also is undergoing positive growth with employers increasing hiring by 29% in April to June 2022 in the face of global inflation. The campaign aims to solidify the need for SMBs to hire right to continue the positive growth trajectory. The duration of the ad films are: 20 seconds and can be viewed below: What happens when you rely on hiring practices that do not evaluate the fitment between the candidate’s skills with the requirements of the job?
