DES MOINES, Iowa – October 1, 2014 – BirdDog, a leader in recruitment and applicant tracking solutions (ATS) for the construction and skilled trades industries, and Wonderlic, a leading provider of comprehensive hiring assessment systems, have collaborated to complete an integration of the BirdDog ATS and Wonderlic assessments. The integration provides customers of both organizations with centralized recruiting and pre-hire candidate profiles.
Depending on the position, a bad hire can cost an organization anywhere from $25,000 to $300,000 according to researchers at the National Business Research Institute (NBRI). The BirdDog ATS helps organizations target and attract top candidates, manage the interview process and report on recruitment success. Wonderlic provides pre-employment assessments to screen prospective employees. The integration of the two solutions enables organizations to view candidates’ Wonderlic assessment results by clicking a link from within their BirdDog ATS. This seamless integration of the systems provides recruiting leaders with a centralized location to access completed candidate information, which speeds time to hire and streamlines the hiring process.
“Qualified, motivated employees are the backbone of every successful organization,” said Wonderlic Executive Vice President of Sales Ken Silber. “Providing businesses with innovative tools and technologies that enable more informed and efficient hiring decisions is the goal of our relationship with BirdDog. Our integration provides a powerful and unified solution for clients.”
“Organizations find it increasingly challenging to identify and hire top talent,” said Todd Skokan, president and CEO of BirdDog. “The new integration with Wonderlic’s tools provides customers with stronger capabilities to identify candidates that are the right fit for their organization.”
“Our company is growing quickly so identifying and hiring top talent is critical,” said Gresham Ard, Residential General Manager at Bardi Heating and Air. “The BirdDog and Wonderlic integration provides a centralized and comprehensive candidate profile. As a result we increase our speed to hire by focusing on candidates that are the best fit for our organization.”
