Randstad RiseSmart Accelerates Talent Mobility Through New Solutions

Global outplacement and talent mobility provider Randstad RiseSmart announced two new solutions that quickly connect hiring managers and recruiters with qualified talent within and outside their organisations: RiseSmart FirstLook, Recruiter and Enterprise Editions.


Targeting recruiters and talent acquisition teams globally, FirstLook Recruiter Edition offers free access to search and source talent across RiseSmart’s global network of active job seekers. In addition, FirstLook Recruiter Edition also aggregates talent across RiseSmart’s customer-branded talent directories to provide real-time access to job seekers the minute they become available to the market. Announced in September, RiseSmart talent directories are public-facing sites that customers can deploy at no extra cost, helping to accelerate impacted job seekers’ chances of landing their next role.


FirstLook Enterprise Edition is available to RiseSmart customers and delivers additional value by enabling talent teams within organizations to match people to jobs and jobs to people. This helps organisations improve internal and inter-company mobility and minimize the number of workers affected by layoffs.


Employees can be matched to a wide array of roles, including:

-Internal jobs, gigs and projects

-Jobs at other divisions and partner companies

-Opportunities within RiseSmart’s jobs network


Kevin Gounden, senior vice president of products and global expansion at Randstad RiseSmart said, “It is not uncommon for organisations to be forced to lay off employees from one line of business while simultaneously recruiting for open opportunities in other divisions or partner companies around the globe. Some of our customers tell us that up to 70 per cent of their laid-off workers become boomerang employees. This inefficient cycling of talent is not only a costly knowledge drain for organisations, but also devastating for employees, especially in the current economic climate. As a partner to many global companies, we see the opportunity to bridge the gap in which some of our customers need to let go of employees while others are actively hiring. FirstLook Enterprise Edition lets companies maximize talent mobility by automating the matching between their at-risk talent and open opportunities across our global network. We are delighted to bring an entirely new level of transparency, fluidity and innovation to internal and inter-company mobility solutions for our customers.”


With FirstLook Enterprise Edition, internal hiring managers and recruiters can more easily find the right talent to fill job openings, whether from inside or outside the company, by receiving a prioritised list of job matches from among multiple internal and external talent pools. The solution also empowers employees to have more control over their career options by enabling them to be matched to relevant open roles based on their skills.
