HRchitect featured SilkRoad in our May 2008 release of The Suite Life of Integrated Talent Management and also includes them in our list of top Talent Acquisition Systems vendors that businesses should consider. SilkRoad competed in the HRchitect Beauty Pageant in January 2009 on Onboarding Systems, where they were crowned the winner. Brian Platz, COO and EVP of SilkRoad appeared on the HRchitect WebMingle on March 20, 2009.
SilkRoad technology, inc., the leading provider of talent management solutions, announced today Concentra has implemented SilkRoad’s OpenHire recruiting management and applicant tracking system. With OpenHire, Concentra ensures they have the ability to power their Human Resources websites to inform both current and potential candidates about the benefits and advantages of working for Concentra. As a national health care company offering comprehensive services to injured/ill patients and their employers through their nationwide network of medical centers, Concentra believes you should expect more, regardless of whether you are a patient or an employee.
OpenHire is the second of three SilkRoad technology solutions being implemented by Concentra. During the latter part of 2008, Concentra implemented SilkRoad’s Eprise as a content management system to power four of their employee benefits and career sites. They are currently in the process of implementing RedCarpet for onboarding and have future plans to use RedCarpet “life events” as well.
“We’re very pleased with our decision to go with SilkRoad,” said Greg Miller, vice president of talent management at Concentra. “We were using another provider whose system was costing us more and providing us less in terms of functionality, ease of use, and customer service. We look forward to being more efficient, effective, and responsive with the SilkRoad solutions.”
OpenHire, part of SilkRoad technology’s Life Suite of Web-based talent management solutions, is a market-leading recruiting and candidate management solution that turns the challenging task of attracting and hiring top quality talent into a more efficient, manageable and trackable process. OpenHire offers the best candidate sourcing, qualification screening, process management, career site portal and resume tools in the industry. OpenHire includes advanced intelligent search functionality and reporting to support the latest Equal Employment Opportunity and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs reporting regulations.
OpenHire’s intelligent search feature reads and understands both resumes and job descriptions, automatically identifying individuals best suited to a specific position and returning a list ranked by probability of placement. The comprehensive OpenHire career site portal is directed specifically at providing information to candidates on careers and job openings, as well as a means to deliver an organization’s talent brand.
