A powerful idea: Re-engineer recruitment for today’s markets

Our journey began when we noticed a critical gap in the way companies recruited candidates. Recruitment in Asia — we felt— was still stuck processes relevant decades ago – when it was an employers’ and not employees’ market.

Today, when top global brands are competing for the cream of talent in domestic markets, you can no longer afford to treat candidates as just numbers or have your recruiters and hiring manager waste precious time in tedious manual processes.

The right technology can empower you to not just minimize the time spent in searching, sourcing, and shortlisting candidates but also reduce chances of manual lapses. Simultaneously, it can help you design and deliver an impactful candidate experience.

It was with this simple yet powerful thought that hireXP was born.

We dreamt of creating a highly usable, intuitive solution that would take away your day-to-day recruitment worries, streamline standard hiring processes, and provide you with insightful analytics on your systems. But most importantly, free up your recruiters’ time and creativity to engage candidates in more impactful ways.
