VIDEO Interview: Expr3ss! algorithms ensures staff selection all goes right

By

If you’re seeking new staff for your company, you can do things the old fashioned way and hope for the best, or you can use technology to find the best match.

Expr3ss! is a successful and fast growing Australian software company, started by Dr Glyn Brokensha, a doctor and psychologist, and Carolyne Burns, a recruitment industry specialist.

Dr Brokensha and Burns joined forces to blend the best of psychology with the best of technology and the best of recruitment philosophy, resulting in algorithms powering smart software so employers can screen potential applicants not just for aptitude, but attitude and cultural fit.

The resulting success of Expr3ss! has proven the business model of blending psychology with algorithm successful, making understanding the difference between a person ‘on paper’ and the same person ‘in person’ something possible before wasting a lot of time employing a person only to discover they just weren’t right in reality.

This has ensured businesses are much better placed ‘to hire staff they are more likely to retain and who are more likely to succeed,’ and has entailed in Expr3ss! engaging in the disruption of the traditional recruitment industry through algorithms, software and technology.

The article continues below this ad, and the video interview is embedded below, please read on!

Some of the companies reporting amazing results using Expr3ss! include Krispy Kreme, Beaumont Tiles and Kennards Hire, to name a few. Beaumont Tiles in particular moved from a 20% turnover to a 2.5% turnover of staff in the last five years, and saved over $400,000 on hiring at the executive level alone.

We decided to interview Dr Brokensha, who was a great spokesperson to talk on how technology is evolving the recruitment industry, and around the trend of employers moving away from the CV and focusing more on a cultural fit in order to retain staff.

The good doctor explained how he and Burns came up with the idea behind the Expr3ss! algorithms and the challenges faced in making it all work. He shared how long the business has been running and whether the concept is one that is easily copyable by traditional jobs boards.

He shared more on companies achieving success with Expr3ss!, how Expr3ss! has used its own technologies to hire its own staff, the challenges facing the recruitment industry, what it might look like in a decade and plenty more.

Here is iTWire’s video interview with Dr Glyn Brokensha - it is definitely worth your time to watch!
