New York, NY, July 8, 2020 — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Volt Information Sciences, Inc. (“Volt” or the “Company”) (NYSE-AMERICAN: VOLT), a global provider of staffing services, today announced new partnerships with Able (Formerly EmployStream) and Sense, a pair of industry-leading technology platforms which streamline the recruiting and onboarding process and ensure a premium candidate experience.
Volt’s partnership with EmployStream demonstrates its ongoing investment of resources in technology tools to drive next-generation workforce solutions. The onboarding automation platform will accelerate the Company’s hiring and onboarding of contingent workers, while maintaining compliance and managing workflows in Volt’s existing applicant tracking system (“ATS”). The cloud-based, mobile-first solution streamlines onboarding for both candidates and recruiters, who can use it from any device.
Volt’s commitment to technology is also evident through its partnership with Sense, whose platform automates outreach and engagement between the Company and its contingent workforce, driving improved communications from the recruiting stage to redeployment. This technology likewise works seamlessly with Volt’s ATS, allowing the Company to more easily maintain and enrich relationships with all active candidates in its database.
Linda Perneau, Volt’s President and Chief Executive Officer commented, “These new partnerships will bring efficiencies and an improved user experience to our Volt colleagues and field employees, who will have access to these platforms every day, from anywhere, and on any device. These technologies are especially helpful to our workforce during this time and will benefit Volt well into the future as an ever-increasing share of communications and processes occur electronically.”
“It’s exciting to see cutting-edge staffing firms like Volt so committed to improving the onboarding experience for their candidates,” said Gerald Hetrick, Chief Executive Officer of EmployStream. “Our solution provides Volt with more time to focus on recruiting and engaging candidates, rather than processing applications and paperwork.”
Anil Dharni, Co-Founder and CEO of Sense added: “I’m thrilled that Volt has partnered with Sense to elevate communication and engagement throughout the entire staffing life cycle. We’re committed to working together to transform the talent experience, drive recruiter productivity and uncover new candidates from their database.”
