This week’s new launches include: FAIRER Consulting, Hays, Indeed, UBIO, Vercida Consulting

• Global hiring platform Indeed is introducing new AI-powered products and features to make the hiring process faster, simpler and more efficient for both employers and jobseekers. Its Smart Sourcing AI-powered product enables employers to source an active talent pool of nearly 300 million workers globally, based on profiles and CVs shared on the platform. The AI-powered matching engine instantly recommends the best candidates for a job based on an individual’s skills, experiences and qualifications. Employers can then quickly review matched candidates, directly connect with them, and hire faster.

UBIO, a web automation platform that connects websites to enhance the user experience and improve the speed of online interactions, has launched its new platform for job boards. The platform has been designed to reduce “friction” for job applicants, provide a competitive advantage to job boards, while also offering hiring organisations with greater potential to reach quality candidates.

Vercida Consulting, the DE&I inclusion expert, has rebranded as FAIRER Consulting, which will be led by Dan Robertson to support its growth as a global inclusion company. Hays, the specialist in workforce solutions and recruitment, who purchased a majority stake in FAIRER in 2023 will be supporting the growth of the consultancy as it expands out of the UK and Europe into markets such as the US, Australia and New Zealand, and Germany.

The repositioning of FAIRER (Fairness, accessibility, inclusion, respect, equity and representation) will provide clarity as they support global businesses to diversify their talent pools and to create inclusive work cultures in three key areas: education, leadership and consulting.
