SeekOut Announces New Solutions to Help Companies Preserve Talent Amidst Economic Uncertainty

The Leader in Enterprise Talent Optimization Expands Offerings to Help Companies Address Internal Mobility for Greater Resiliency

SEATTLE, Wash., May 25, 2022 – SeekOut, the leading Enterprise Talent Optimization Platform, today announced new Internal Talent Optimization (ITO) solutions advancing the vision of providing the tools that allow great companies and great people to grow together. SeekOut’s ITO solutions give companies a comprehensive view of talent across the organization to help grow, retain, and redeploy talent, allowing businesses and their people to be successful regardless of economic uncertainty.

Today, companies are limited by existing systems that provide a shallow view of existing employee capabilities–one that fails to track experiences from prior roles and skills gained while at the company. This lack of information makes it difficult for companies to make the most of their talented teams. With economic uncertainty and a tight hiring market, now more than ever companies need data and insights to deploy their talent effectively.

"Whether during economic downturns or upturns, SeekOut’s goal is to help companies build the most resilient teams possible and maximize success for the organization and the individual,” said Anoop Gupta, CEO and Co-Founder at SeekOut. “Our new offering is the next step toward building the most complete Enterprise Talent Optimization platform that uniquely positions our customers to realize growth and innovation, even during hard times.”

SeekOut’s Internal Talent Optimization solutions help companies:

  • Redeploy Existing Talent –

    with skills and experience information from external sources and internal HRIS, get the complete picture of your existing employee base. Creatively route employees to open roles, avoid layoffs, and preserve talent.

  • Retain and Grow Employees –

    with tools that let employees identify new opportunities within your organization, helping you engage and grow the people you’re already invested in.

  • Gain Insights on Existing Talent –

    with powerful analytics your company needs to maximize the talent you have today.

SeekOut is the leading Enterprise Talent Optimization Platform that provides companies with untapped talent pools, diversity strategy and sourcing, data-driven recruiting solutions, and more. These capabilities are helping companies look to the future and address the continually shifting workforce landscape. When there is a clear and comprehensive picture of all talent, people and companies are empowered to grow together.
