Aotal Limited, the developer and owner of New Zealand’s most widely adopted ATS, SnapHire, as well as the integration platform as a service, Talent App Store, today announced the launch of SnapHire Connect, a nationwide job board connecting SnapHire client employees impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with open job opportunities across the wider SnapHire community.  The platform will act as a bridge between client organisations who need to quickly hire in the current climate, and their counterparts with employees who have been either furloughed or laid off and are now seeking new employment.  SnapHire Connect provides the opportunity for employees, businesses and HR leaders to collaborate across the entire SnapHire network which is made up of 250 organisations ranging in size from 80 to 40,000 employees across all industries.

“We are currently seeing many of our clients experiencing a significant spike in recruitment activity and are needing to quickly fill roles to keep operations moving at this critical time, whilst sadly others have been severely impacted and unfortunately are now forced into making many of their previously valued team members redundant.  SnapHire Connect, with its searching technology, is exactly what we need to connect people to opportunities very quickly and very simply” said Richard Barry, CEO of Aotal. “For us, standing up this platform is another way we can help and support the wider community we are proud to serve.  No one really knows at this point the full impact on the job market, but many good people and many good organisations are going through some very difficult times that are not of their making right now, so if we can help our clients place some of their people into roles at other companies that may well need their help, we’ll be happy with that. Doing so may well also help fill critical shortages within some of our customers experiencing high demand and retain goodwill with their employees, in the hope that they may even have an opportunity to re-join the organisation when business conditions improve.”
