What is...

RemiPeople is a web – based software application or SaaS (Software as a Service), which streamlines and improves your internal recruitment process. Uniquely RemiPeople has been carefully designed to strip out unconscious bias from each stage of the recruiting process, meaning better quality hires, who are better matched to your business. Additionally we automate the many manual, repetitive tasks associated with hiring, meaning you find the best hires, faster but with less effort.

SaaS is a method of software delivery that allows data to be accessed from any device with an internet connection and web browser. This removes the cost and effort associated with hosting and maintaining the software. Meaning no additional IT work for your business, as we take care of all that. Additionally there’s no need be tied into a product license or support fees. You simply pay for the jobs you wish to recruit as you go.

Many of the tasks associated with the recruitment process are manual and repetitive. Take for example the scheduling of interviews, or internal candidate tracking and communication. RemiPeople automates these and other processes associated with recruitment so your business can better deploy these resources.

Unconscious bias (or implicit bias) is often defined as prejudice in favour of or against one thing, person, or group as compared to another, in a way that is usually considered unfair. Unconscious bias occurs automatically, a sort of mental shortcut to help the brain process masses of information it’s exposed to each second. Although we all have biases, many unconscious biases tend to be exhibited toward minority groups based on factors such as, gender, race, ethnicity, social status, sexual preference, age and other such traits.

Hiring bias is rampant throughout each stage of hiring process and negatively affects your business’s ability to hire the very people it needs for growth.

RemiPeople automates the best hiring process. Many systems will automate a hiring process, but without stripping out bias, you’re left with an inferior recruitment process. Automating an inefficient hiring system serves to only accentuate its flaws. Technology affords us the opportunity to de-bias the hiring processes with anonymised candidate screening and structured interviewing. Manual processes which are very difficult and time consuming to implement. Technology helps.

What does RemiPeople offer?

Online job boards such as SEEK offer a community of active job seekers. RemiPeople then filters these candidates through a debiased recruitment process to help you select the best hire. When using RemiPeople you would ordinarily continue to attract candidates using online job boards, social media, referral programs and any others ways you have found successful.

ATS is a software application that enables the electronic handling of recruitment needs, much like a customer relationship management (CRM) system. ATS allows data mining and collection and the ability to automate the recruitment process via a defined workflow.

Cost
ATS is a significant investment and pricing ranges from around $USD3,000 ( <10 employees) to around $USD 140,000 per year (5,000+ employees) (ref link)

Quality of Hire
In many cases ATS filter applications automatically based on given criteria such as keywords, skills, former employers, years of experience and schools attended. Unlike RemiPeople this exacerbates bias during the hiring process. In response this has encouraged candidates to adopt resume optimisation techniques similar to those used in search engine optimisation when creating and formatting their résumé.

Time
ATS’s have many advanced features that automate the manual tasks of hiring making the recruitment process more efficient.

Diversity Functionality
Unlike RemiPeople, ATS’s do not offer diversity functionality such as

  • Structured Interviewing
  • Interviewer independence to avoid Groupthink
  • Comparative scoring
  • Anonymised candidate screening

Human Resource Information System (HRIS) is a software or online solution for the data entry, data tracking, and data information needs of the Human Resources, payroll, management, and accounting functions within a business. It may also include applicant tracking, interview and selection, not dissimilar to an ATS (refer to ATS for comparison with RemiPeople).

RemiPeople is an internal recruitment business tool designed to support hiring managers and your internal human resources team should you have one. The major advantage of using an external recruiter, should you select the right provider, is the ability to source candidates for difficult to fill roles.

Cost
External Recruiters, are the most expensive recruitment option.

Quality of Hire
Engaging an external recruiter may improve the Quality of your Hires but the process is still subject to recruiter bias.

Time
Outsourcing hiring to an external recruiter may shave some time off the process, but it still requires heavy involvement from the business.

Diversity Functionality
This service is not offered.

RemiPeople provides peace of mind that your hiring managers and recruiters are not turning away the very candidates that your business needs for growth. This isn’t because they are trying to do the wrong thing, rather it’s because of their unconscious bias. This bias affects all humans, no one is spared. You do not require a Human Resources team to use RemiPeople.
