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.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
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.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
