(November 14, 2006) Some of our audience remembers our lengthy and productive relationship with Hire.com. The company pioneered the use of on-demand hiring through the corporate website. While other, similar companies focused on the data accumulation aspects of the corporate employment site, Hire.com perfected the candidate pool management and development side of things. An early demonstration of Software as Service, Hire.com was far ahead of its time. (Many of their ideas are central to the inner workings of the latest round of startups.)

Hire.com was purchased last year by Authoria, an up and coming Software as Service provider in the Route 128 corridor around Boston. (Things are exploding there, these days.) Authoria (whose offices are a stones throw away from Salary.com and RetirementJobs and close to Experience, Eons and H3) is an Integrated, Strategic Talent Management provider. Their offering is a robust, modular package designed to make the individual user a more effective contributor.

Their latest offering, launched this week, includes an interesting upgrade to the Recruiting (the old Hire.com) module. It's an innovative improvement that features an organization chart as the primary hiring manager interface. The real end user (hiring manager) is able to manipulate data and scenarios in advance of the release of the official employment requisition. This gives the hiring manager and the recruiters who support her the opportunity to envision and prepare in advance of the flag dropping. The idea is to improve agility while decreasing the reactiveness of the process.

It works.

The hardest thing for most firms serving the Recruiting Industry to imagine is the plight of the hiring manager. Always a recruiting novice, the hiring manager is a part of the equation because her pants are on fire from the pressure of not having enough staff. Learning to deal with the wants and needs of recruiters who are  supposed to be providing service is often the straw that breaks the camel's back. The hiring manager needs help because she has no time left. Recruiting always takes time.

By providing an interface that encourages advance planning and scenario development, the Authoria Adaptive Org Chart interface tries to broker a healthier relationship between Recruiting and Hiring. The Hiring Manager is able to envision reorganizations, role revisions and skillset applications by moving boxes around the org chart template. Making the same information available to the recruiter encourages effective communication between all of the players in the hiring process.

The magnificent insight from Authoria is that Recruiters need the same information that the hiring manager will use to flesh out the new org chart. This is the very same stuff that Authoria uses to move its Talent Management material around the rest of the organization.

Authoria makes a very interesting case with this release. Unless the entire organization is engaged in the hiring process, you are stuck with a silo of activity that will remain less than completely productive. While it may seem like a small move forward, the Adaptive Org Chart in Authoria 2007 is a breakthrough in effective recruiting.
