Lever, a software company powering recruiting for more than 700 fast-growing companies, today announces it has signed an agreement with Eventbrite, the world’s largest self-service ticketing platform, to help the company efficiently source, interview and hire top talent. Lever’s applicant tracking software will streamline the Eventbrite hiring process by providing a one-stop platform for sourcing, nurturing and hiring talent.
The partnership brings together two innovators in the human resources (HR) space – Sarah Nahm, CEO of Lever, and Mike Bailen, director of recruiting at Eventbrite. Both Nahm and Bailen were part of the 2015 LinkedIn Next Wave, which named them among the top 10 executives 35 and under changing the way Recruiting and HR is done.
“The biggest recruiting challenge isn’t about getting the highest possible quantity of applicants, it’s about connecting with the right talent, understanding what motivates them and then building a relationship based on mutual trust,” said Bailen. “Lever’s technology enables us to approach recruiting with a ‘quality over quantity’ mindset while forging an ongoing dialogue between Eventbrite and the market’s top talent.”
Using Lever, Eventbrite will execute on its vision of a multi-touchpoint, relationship-based candidate journey, all while applying measurement and analytics to the process. Eventbrite will be able to view the company’s entire history with each candidate in a single record, keep its hiring managers and recruiters in sync, and send personalized, valuable follow ups at regular intervals.
“When it comes to hiring, more isn’t better – in fact, it’s generally the opposite,” said Nahm. “A wide breath of candidates usually means more time, but often less value. Our goal is to identify and nurture a smaller, more targeted pool of candidates, who will not only be top performers, but will stay with the company for a longer duration.”
Lever was recently recognized by RecruitingDaily as one of the top 10 HR Technology and Recruiting Tools of 2015.
