New Pairin Solution Makes Hiring More Predictable and Less Costly

Quickly and accurately assesses unlimited applicants for just $199

DENVER, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pairin, Inc. today launched Job Pairin, a web-based solution for pre-employment selection that "flips" the hiring process by emphasizing behavioral DNA first, followed by experience and other considerations.

Job Pairin uniquely identifies optimal interview candidates by comparing them to the Gold Standard created through testing of existing employees in the same positions according to 137 peak performance drivers.

Founded by Dr. Ron Young (PhD in Psychology) and Michael L. Simpson, Denver-based Pairin enters the fast-growing, pre-employment selection market with a portfolio of easily integrated and affordable SaaS applications.

"Culminating 10 years of custom implementations with multiple customers, Job Pairin includes
18 months of rigorous prototype and beta testing across numerous trial sites," said Simpson, co-founder and CEO. "Early implementations have proven to both lower employee turnover and hiring time spent up to 80 percent."

Leveraging more than 50 years of proven science, Job Pairin provides a simple 10-minute online test that accurately selects applicants with the best potential for success. The solution includes a complete applicant tracking system and custom-branded website that can integrate with an existing eRecruitment solution, job boards and corporate job sites.

"Within one year of implementing an early prototype of Job Pairin in 2003, we saw our employee turnover in that position drop from 32 percent to 11 percent, saving us millions in training and hiring costs," said Derek Temper, Director of Human Resources at Dent Wizard. "In December 2012, we converted to the new cloud service and are very pleased with the updated features and reliability, especially the applicant-specific hiring insights and interview guide."

How It Works
The Gold Standard calculation within Job Pairin is based on data received from assessing at least three each of best and worst performers in the same position as the job listing. Only six tests are required to generate a Gold Standard, but additional tests will result in more accurate and detailed results.

  • Job Pairin takes this data and automatically compares it to all applicants from the job listing, generating a ranked list of top applicants as compared to the Gold Standard.
  • The entire process can be deployed in only 10 minutes and costs $199 per month to assess unlimited employees and unlimited applicants against one job listing.
  • Job Pairin automatically generates applicant-specific guides with insights and recommended questions to help hiring managers conduct effective interviews. 

"Identifying the Gold Standard enables hiring managers to streamline the hiring process by focusing attention on candidates demonstrating the behaviors and characteristics of their most-valued and dedicated employees," said Simpson.  "With 50 percent of new hires failing within 18 months and 60 percent of employees believing they are a poor fit for their jobs, Job Pairin is vital to helping organizations make the best hire for the right reasons."

Designed for small organizations and departments, Employee Pairin will be introduced in late-February and compares a top applicant to a single top employee. Employee Pairin costs $49 for a one-to-one test and 30 day job posting; additional applicants are just $29 each.

All Pairin pre-employment solutions are delivered via cloud computing and accessible through web-enabled platforms, desktop applications and mobile devices.

Pairin, Inc., a pioneer developer of web-based SaaS applications for the pre-employment selection market, helps organizations by focusing the hiring process on the person first, and then assessing historical data, like experience. Founded by Dr. Ron Young and Michael L. Simpson and based on more than 50 years of proven science, Pairin identifies optimal interview candidates through the modeling of existing top employees in the same positions according to 137 peak performance drivers. Instead of wasting valuable time and energy on endless resumes often containing false information, hiring managers and HR professionals can better focus attention on qualified applicants demonstrating the behaviors and characteristics of their most-valued and dedicated employees. Pairin streamlines and improves hiring by making it more predictable and removing guesswork.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
