Kenexa, a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today announced that it has partnered with Amnesty International to help the human rights group manage its international recruitment and to help hire the very best people.
Amnesty International’s potential applicants, for full time, part time and volunteer roles, will be able to search for available jobs on its website, register and receive emails when jobs are posted, and apply for jobs online. Hiring managers at Amnesty International will also be able to use the system to review and approve applications online.
“We chose Kenexa Recruiter BrassRing because it is an easy-to-use system that we can configure to suit our specific recruitment processes,” said Helen Bloomfield, Human Resources Programme Director at Amnesty International. “We get up to 400 applications for some jobs and, previously, we were managing the process manually, which was very time-consuming. We hope that the new system will free up managers’ time to enable them to do more of their core work.
Kenexa Recruiter BrassRing allows HR staff to produce comprehensive reports, showing how long it takes and how much it costs to hire staff, as well as providing equal opportunities information. HR staff can also build their own specific reports, to look at issues such as why people leave certain roles.
Rudy Karsan, chief executive officer, Kenexa, commented, “Amnesty International needs to find the best candidates from the high volume of applications it receives. Our cutting-edge technology and our expertise in data mining, analysis and reporting will transform their processes. They’ll be able to handle significant volume, transmit their ethos and goals more consistently and provide an enhanced experience for their applicants.”
Kenexa Recruiter BrassRing will be integrated with Amnesty’s HR information system, allowing candidate details to be seamlessly transferred between the two systems automatically.
