WorkableHR – Make Smarter Hiring Decisions


Having trouble deciding which job applicant to hire? WorkableHR is a tool that companies can use to manage the hiring process and ultimately find the right person for whatever position they are trying to fill.

Sign up for a free beta account to try out WorkableHR before its full release. Type up a basic description of your company and the specific position you’re trying to fill, and enter it into the WorkableHR platform. You can easily post open positions on social networks like Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. Candidates who come across your posting will be able to quickly check off their qualifications from a list of necessary skills, and type in their answers to a few more detailed queries that are relevant to the job you have available. Rather than emailing you their resumes as attachments, candidates can apply directly using their LinkedIn accounts.

Once the applications start rolling in, you and your team can use WorkableHR to compare candidates in a side-by-side format. Keep applications organized, and create a short list of people you’d like to bring in for in-person interviews. WorkableHR lets you work in teams, to take the pressure off a single HR manager, and lets committee members comment on applicants or assign tasks to fellow colleagues right from inside the WorkableHR system.

Practical Uses:

  • Compare two job candidates with very similar backgrounds
  • Let your colleagues know what you think of a particular job applicant
  • Post a job opening on Facebook
  • Put the best applicants on a shortlist for a potential interview

Insider Tips:

  • Companies can post job openings on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or Google+
  • Use the analytics tools to see how many applications still need to be reviewed
  • WorkableHR’s candidate database is searchable by keyword
  • Create separate hiring teams for each available position

What we liked:

  • Communication with applicants is done through the platform, not through your own personal email
  • Colleagues can comment on things they like about a candidate’s application
  • Job applicants can utilize their LinkedIn accounts when applying for jobs
  • Employers can ask candidates to check the boxes next to any skills they possess

What we didn’t like:

  • WorkableHR is only available in beta, and a full release date has not been announced
