Press release: Austrian software against discrimination in the recruitment process

Labor market: the best should always have their turn

Often the careers of people are determined by criteria that are neither objective nor have they affixed equal opportunities and equal treatment to their banner. Applications are being skimmed by recruiters – partly unconsciously, partly for reasons of time - for criteria that do not say anything about the question how good the applicant meets the requirements of the job ad.

This includes sex, ethnic affiliation, religion, optics, age, and the form of application documents. Often it is enough when only one of these criteria does not meet the expectations, then the application already failed in the preselection. Discrimination based on prejudices is a topic that is constantly discussed in the job placement.

JoinVision develops products, that do not know prejudices. Neither the CVparser CVlizer nor the search and match tool MatchPoint know this kind of preselection. Their focus is only on the applicant’s qualifications. Here only criteria like job experience, skills, education, language skills, job site and willingness to travel determine if an applicant is qualified for a job or not.

Reinhold Immler, CEO of JoinVision E-Services GmbH is sure: “JoinVision makes a contribution to objectify the recruitment process with it’s recruiting software and helps to make it more unprejudiced. In other words: to immunize it against discrimination. The best should always have their turn.

In order to effectively match job ads with incoming applications a sophisticated parsing technologie is required. In case of an application that means: all relevant information is extracted, qualified and normalized from all of the application documents. These are complex processes that the CVlizer takes care of within the shortest time. As a result a completely objective candidate profile arises in the data base.

MatchPoint as congenial partner of the CVlizer stands for intelligent searching and matching of applicant profiles and job ads. Hereby the possible applications are numerous. So for example it is possible to match a candidate profile with all job ads in the data base or the other way round: match a job ad with all candidate profiles in a data base.

At the end there’s always a ranked result, that serves as objective decision-making tool for the recruiter, in order to arrange the following processes for the final occupation of the position. So it helps the recruiter in two ways: on the one hand he gets a list of the best matching applicants based on objective criteria, on the other hand the software tools freed him of the time-intensive back-breaking work of recruiting. He only has to pick up the phone and arrange a job interview – just in time and without prejudices!
