Clear Talents in Recruitment

Q: How does ClearTalents™ work for Candidates?

A: If you’re applying for a new job, you should explore how employers can make the application experience as positive as possible so that you can perform at your best. The best way to improve your confidence when applying for a job is to remove any concerns you might have about your particular circumstances. Telling an employer about your concerns means they can make some changes to the process to make your experience as positive as possible. Employers who have the ClearTalents™ system want to help you. They want to see your skills and abilities at their best. They’re not going to use anything you say against you. If you meet the criteria for the job and are able to do the job, that’s all that matters. Click on any of the five icons to start the process. For example, if you use a telephone differently to others, don’t speak English or have times of the day which you can’t be contacted then click the telephone icon and tell us about it. We’ll make the recruiter aware and your experience should, therefore, be improved. You might use a computer in a certain way, you might need to make special travel arrangements or tell us about how you get on in face to face meetings. Click the icons that relate to you and your circumstances and you’ll see how ClearTalents™ can help. Once you’ve finished, a report is generated to show you a summary of what you’ve told us. ClearTalents™ remembers who you are and you can use the profile you’ve created for any job application. If your circumstances change you can always come back and change your profile at any time.

Q: How does ClearTalents™ work for Employers?

A: If you’re an employer, by law, you have to make reasonable adjustments in recruitment to provide all candidates with the opportunity to perform at their best. As an employer, you know that finding and engaging the best talent is getting more and more difficult. Almost 70% of the working age population in the UK will have some circumstance, condition, impairment or commitment which makes applying for a job more of a challenge for them than others. Making small changes to the way you recruit can make the experience of applying for a job with you a much more positive one for most of those 70%.

Q: How does ClearTalents™ work for Occupational Health Teams?

A: Identifying the need for reasonable adjustments in recruitment is a challenge facing Occupational Health Teams. Occupational Health Teams play a critical role in the implementation of reasonable adjustments. ClearTalents™ supports Occupational Health Teams by identifying possible interventions ahead of a formal assessment process. The ClearTalents™ system provides Occupational Health Teams with a pre-assessment qualification of potential support needs. In most cases, ClearTalents™ will offer sufficient guidance for stakeholders to be able to make the required adjustments without needing to consult Occupational Health Teams. However, in the cases where a more formal assessment is required, Occupational Health Teams will be dealing with genuine requests for support with guidance in place to help implement the best and most appropriate solution for the candidate.

Q: How does ClearTalents™ work for Recruitment Companies?

A: If you’re a recruitment company talent attraction services for employers, you are required by law to provide reasonable adjustments in the recruitment process for those who need them. ClearTalents™ will help you manage this process efficiently. Quality of hire, candidate experience, diversity of shortlists, legal compliance, the Equality Act, Corporate Social Responsibility. These are just some of the key drivers for many employers today. ClearTalents™ helps recruiters to be on top of all these drivers. As candidates create a profile of themselves, they generate a report for recruiters which guide them through the process of dealing with difference. For example, Candidate X has some hearing loss, but doesn’t tell you. How do you deal fairly with that candidate? How do you ensure legal compliance? How do you help them perform at their best? In reality, you can’t do any of the above if you don’t know they’ve got hearing loss. ClearTalents™ will not only tell you the candidate is Dyslexic, it will tell you what that means, what to do and how to deal confidently with the candidate in order to make the right adjustments. The result is a diverse talent pool of candidates who’ve had a better experience of the recruitment process because you’ve shown them you value their application. How big an issue is this? 6m people are Dyslexic. 11m people are disabled. 2m people have hearing loss. 2m people have a different first language than English. 6.4m people have caring responsibilities as well as work commitments. All of these people are protected by the equality act. They represent over 70% of the available workforce.
