Workforce Planning Platform Enables HR Teams and Recruiters to Identify Ethnically and Racially Diverse Markets for Hiring
BeyondHQ, the leader in digitized workforce and workplace planning, today announced that it now offers a broad set of diversity data for market analysis as part of its decision-making platform. The insights provided by the BeyondHQ platform can be leveraged by companies looking to expand their diverse workforce.
By enabling recruiting and HR teams to conduct talent searches in markets across the U.S. with the most diverse populations, BeyondHQ helps companies make more informed decisions and fulfill their promises to build company-wide teams with more minorities and people of color.
BeyondHQ is the first real-time, user-driven, collaborative SaaS technology designed to help companies integrate their hiring and location planning processes in one centralized platform. Through unlimited talent and real estate analyses, the distributed workforce and workplace planning tools bring transparency, collaboration, and speed to corporate decision-makers tasked with the challenge of building and scaling geographically distributed teams and offices.
With its broad set of diversity metrics, the BeyondHQ platform allows HR professionals to pinpoint geographic regions so they can focus on finding and hiring individuals from diverse races, ethnicities, and backgrounds. They can then apply filters to searches such as level of education and current skill set, among other factors, to look for ideal candidates for different positions. In the near future, the platform will also include the ability to search for candidates based on prior work experience for specific types of jobs.
“As racial injustice and socioeconomic inequity have become a growing concern for people across the country, companies in many industries have pledged to expand opportunities for minorities and fill more jobs with people of color. Unfortunately, many companies are not living up to their promises,” said Allie Meng, Co-Founder of BeyondHQ. “Finding minority talent can be challenging without the right tools available. Our goal is to put needed information in the hands of people who are making hiring decisions so they can easily find and hire ethnically diverse candidates. Through our diversity metrics, companies can do their part to establish equality in the workplace.”
BeyondHQ: Data-driven Insights to Inform Smarter Hiring Decisions
Companies today face growing challenges with hybrid work models, geographically distributed work spaces, and building more diversity in the workforce. BeyondHQ enables HR, Real Estate, and Finance teams to evaluate where, why, and how to source talent, establish a physical presence, and support a hybrid work model. Using a single interface to access trusted market data, the proprietary technology allows for unlimited scenario planning with customized recommendations based on the organization’s specific needs, priorities, and culture.
The platform pulls more than 50,000 market data points from over 50 private and public sources to provide market data such as:
- Diversity break-down across markets
- Population size
- Top companies
- Talent availability on occupation and skill levels
- Average salary
“As we empower more companies with the diversity metrics they need to bring more opportunities to minority workers, we’ll continue to expand the type of data and filters they’re able to use to pinpoint the right people in the right locations,” said Meng. “This is especially important as the job market bounces back to pre-pandemic levels and companies continue to work to fulfill their commitments to giving back to local communities.”
