PeopleScout, the world largest recruitment process outsourcing provider has launched the award-winning Affinix platform in Europe.
Affinix was showcased at an event last week at London’s Science Museum where PeopleScout demonstrated its capabilities in an evening focused on artificial intelligence and machine learning.
“We are excited to enable organisations in Europe to enhance their existing talent technology and propel their talent acquisition capabilities into the future with Affinix,” said PeopleScout president Taryn Owen. “Affinix creates a superior candidate experience that mimics the simplicity and usability of the best consumer websites and allows our clients to make faster connections with the best talent.”
The technology employs AI and machine learning to streamline the sourcing, screening and candidate engagement process to identify the top talent more efficiently.
PeopleScout said that Affinix has improved performance for clients in the Americas and Asia Pacific by identifying on average 43 more candidates per vacancy and increasing the proportion of candidates applying on mobile increases nearly three-fold.
Ease of application means 80% of candidates finish their application on average, up from 30%, while virtual assessment and scheduling reduces time-to-fill by as much as 35%.
“At PeopleScout, we are proudly different in how we deliver our solutions and in our next generation RPO thinking,” said PeopleScout executive leader and group managing director for Europe and Asia Pacific Andrew Wilkinson.
“Introducing Affinix in Europe is an important milestone in our commitment to changing the rules of RPO to provide the tailored, tech-enabled solutions required in today’s ever-changing talent environment.”
Affinix has been recognised in the US for the Best Advance in RPO Technology at the Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Awards and the HRO Today TekTonic Award in the Candidate Experience category. Last week it was named Most Innovative Enterprise Solution at the Recruiting Service Innovation Awards at the TAtech congress in Austen, Texas.
