Hired, the leading AI-driven hiring marketplace matching tech and sales talent with top companies, has released a new report: “Hired’s 2021 List of Top Employers Winning Tech Talent.” This new annual report lists the top 10 small, medium, and large companies winning tech talent in the U.S. and UK respectively.
Hired’s former Brand Health Report was released in Q4 between 2017 and 2020 and focused on candidates’ perceptions about employers. This new report evaluates companies on value-driven metrics based on data from thousands of daily interactions between recruiters and candidates on Hired’s marketplace.
Hired evaluated employers on its platform against three core pillars essential to a successful employer brand in today’s candidate-driven and competitive hiring market:
For each pillar Hired collected and analyzed specific criteria and metrics based on its proprietary marketplace data between October 1, 2020 and October 31, 2021.
Hired found that the success the top companies realized in attracting and retaining talent correlated to how well they approached these three core pillars.
Hired analyzed data on how many underrepresented candidates companies interviewed and hired. The top performing companies are significantly above average metrics and prioritize diversity and equity (DEI) throughout their hiring process.
Hired analyzed data based on how efficient companies are in interviewing and navigating candidates throughout the hiring processes. It revealed the top companies receive more responses from candidates (due to tailored outreach, and have higher interview and final offer acceptance rates compared to overall averages. This helps them hire faster and reduce time to fill open roles.
Hired analyzed data on how transparent companies are in indicating equitable salaries or salary bands during the hiring process. The top ranking companies demonstrated the least variation in the salary amounts shared with candidates for a given position.
“After a turbulent year of high employee turnover and fierce competition for top talent, we want to recognize companies that have exceptionally navigated this demanding and quickly evolving hiring market," said Josh Brenner, CEO of Hired.
"In this first-of-its-kind report, we spotlight employers who have attracted top tech talent by prioritizing three critical core values – equity, efficiency, and transparency.
We hope to inspire other employers and HR professionals to focus on these key areas as well to successfully engage and bring in the best candidates, while driving accountability in hiring processes.
Finally, this report also illuminates which employers are nailing the recruitment process from start to finish for tech talent."
