Shop! has introduced a new benefit for members, the Retail Recruiter Platform powered by Capango. Created for the retail industry, the tool can help member companies identify talent to quickly fill job gaps. Specifically designed to attract the next generation of job seekers, the mobile-first retail job matching service connects candidates to opportunities without using resumes.
The Retail Recruiter Platform powered by Capango will help Shop! members find, recruit, and match job seekers to the specific needs of their jobs, based on the skill sets and product knowledge required. The mobile tool captures a job seeker’s unique interests, talents, and abilities, and uses data points to automatically match candidates with employers.
To kick off the launch, Shop! is offering a 60-day free trial. After the trial, Shop! members will receive a 15% discount on each match secured.
“We see potential for this tool to become a top source for retail industry candidates,” says Todd Dittman, executive director of Shop!. “Job matching is always a challenging and critical function for any business. We are excited to deliver something that can help our members better navigate the temporary and full-time recruitment challenges they face.”
Stefan Midford, president and CEO of Capango, has been in the retail industry for more than 30 years. “One of the biggest challenges we’ve seen retailers struggle with is the ability to find and retain qualified retail talent,” he says. “Everyone is still playing by the same playbook and using traditional resumes to vet candidates. We felt that this is a badly outdated model and have spent the past two years developing Capango to not only meet the needs of today’s mobile workforce, but to also connect them with jobs that they love.”
The Retail Recruiter Platform powered by Capango offers potential employers a new and easier way of hiring:
- Capango’s proprietary matching algorithm gives employers immediate access to a funnel of qualified job seekers, with the best candidates located on top.
- Job seekers who don’t meet the requirements never receive the option to apply, eliminating the need to sift through hundreds of unqualified applications.
- With easy-to-skim profiles, personalized video introductions, and an in-app chat, the platform helps fill open jobs more quickly.
