In today's dynamic, often unpredictable business environment, an employer may see growth in some parts of its organization while experiencing decline in others. At the human resource level, this means that employees affected by a reduction in workforce might have opportunities within their own company - if the employer can match the candidate to the job opening quickly and efficiently. To address this need, RiseSmart, a provider of next-generation outplacement  and recruitment process outsourcing solutions, today unveiled SmartRedeploy(TM), a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to help employers reassign, rather than lose, valuable talent.

"RiseSmart leverages a common technology platform to accelerate time-to-placement for laid-off workers, through our outplacement solutions, and time-to-hire for employers, through our recruitment offerings," said Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart. "SmartRedeploy represents the most direct way to achieve both of these objectives - an SaaS solution that ensures employers don't let valuable talent slip out the door as a result of inefficient information-sharing, which unfortunately happens all too often today."

When a company has positions to fill, searching for talent among employees affected by layoffs in other parts of the organization can be a race against the clock. The process of combing through candidate data is often too much of a burden to make the goal achievable in a timely manner. SmartRedeploy streamlines this process to make matching talent to internal positions easier than ever.

With SmartRedeploy, employers utilize RiseSmart's intelligent search engine to match available openings with employee skills, certifications, experience, education, and location. SmartRedeploy returns a list of potential internal candidates, as well as a prioritized ranking based on closest match. Hiring managers can make notes, attach documents, and search a variety of data fields to find a candidate with a specific skill or a candidate in a particular location.

SmartRedeploy enables companies to: Redeploy employees subject to workforce reduction to areas needing critical talent; Utilize a powerful online and cross-department assessment portal to automatically match open positions to internal candidates across multiple criteria; Compare candidates from internal and external talent pools in a single view; Search for a candidate by name, department, title, skills or location to redeploy them to a different position; Receive automated matches of former employees for open requisitions; Build a searchable alumni database, review resumes and contact former employees for re-hire; Advertise and highlight their open jobs to affected employees to give them the option of applying; Add specific employees to watchlists so that they can be prioritized for rehire.
