HR Tech Spinout Performica Closes on its Seed Round

Santa Cruz, CA ( Tuesday Feb 7, 2023 @ 7:00 AM Pacific —

Performica, software helping companies transform people risk into their superpower, announced that it has raised $3 million in its seed round of funding.

Led by Surface Ventures and Bowery Capital, and supported by Geek Ventures, the round opened in December of last year and was quickly oversubscribed, indicating how Performica is becoming renowned in the human resources technology space for helping companies leverage real-time data to create better workplaces.

Performica’s suite of software solutions leverage its OrgGraph™ technology, which gives customers real-time visibility into the dynamic and cross-functional work that drives innovation in today’s economy. Performica solutions help customers increase retention of key personnel, increase engagement and performance, as well as manage disruptive organizational change (reorganizations, M&A, and leadership changes) turning people risk into key competitive advantages.

“We spend more time with our coworkers than with our families, yet survey after survey shows that most people are unhappy with their jobs,” said Alex Furman, Chief Executive Officer at Performica. “Our mission is to use data and prescriptive analytics to help busy and distracted leaders make work NOT NOT awesome, and we’re thrilled to have Surface, Bowery, and Geek Ventures join us on our journey.”

As Performica only launched commercially in 2022 after years of being an exclusive, in-house use tool at Invitae (NYSE: NVTA), the company will use the $3 million raised to accelerate growth and expand its use of prescriptive analytics to help clients focus on their workforce as their number one asset, instead of “people risk” that needs to be managed.

“As a co-founder of Invitae who was intimately involved in people and culture at the company, Alex is acutely aware of the problems that scale-ups face in managing people, and the Performica team brings deep domain expertise in HR,” commented Gyan Kapur, Managing Partner at Surface Ventures. “In the current environment, understanding who your key employees are, and retaining and growing them will be even more critical as companies need to do more with less, and Performica’s network-driven approach is uniquely positioned to solve this pain point. We are excited to back Performica and work with the company to help them grow.”

Loren Straub, General Partner at Bowery Capital, added “Performica is giving CHROs the analytics, insights, and intelligence to make truly data-driven decisions when it comes to their most important asset: their people. We see Performica as the future operating system powering all HR departments and ultimately making for a more productive and happy workforce.”

Prosperix Teams with Mother Miracle School to Expand Educational Opportunities for Disadvantaged Students

Las Vegas, Nevada ( Monday Jan 30, 2023 @ 1:00 PM Eastern —

Prosperix, a workforce solutions company, has joined forces with MotherMiracle School in India to ensure the school’s future and increase the impact
of education and jobs for its students. Prosperix CEO Sunil Bagai has made a
financial commitment and is working to establish a school-to-work pipeline
using the company’s workforce technology solutions to place students in software and IT jobs. These opportunities, at companies ranging from
startups to large global companies, will help break the cycle of poverty for
the students, their families, and their communities.

students at Mother Miracle School come from households supported by low-wage
work, like driving rickshaws or selling tea; the school gives them the
education and training that helps them no longer be judged on their social
status or the work of their parents. By supporting technical education and
creating new job opportunities, students will experience more democratized
access to careers and professional success.

“When I visited Mother Miracle School, I was deeply moved by the ways
the non-profit cares for its students, providing
everything from meals to musical instruments to the latest technology as a
means to greater opportunity,” Sunil said. “I realized that since Prosperix
already has a team of employees in India, we could set up a pipeline using our
existing technology to help the students find good jobs, create better lives for them, and impact the entire community.”

Founded and led by Shalah Ettefagh, a US citizen, Mother Miracle School
was established in 2008 and currently serves 486 economically-disadvantaged
children, ages 4 ½ to 18 years old, who live in the community and surrounding
regions. Her work is supported by many generous donors from around the world,
most of whom she meets through personal introductions. “I met Sunil through a
mutual friend, and his decision to work with us will change even more lives. He
is such a positive example because he is Indian. His success and generosity
will inspire our students,” she said.

student at the school receives general English education and technology skills
training starting in kindergarten, with IT skills training beginning in 6th
grade. The school is the first of its kind in India to focus on technology
training for such young students as a means to provide equal access to
high-paying global job opportunities. Students learn skills like typing, Microsoft
Office Suite, C, C++, Python development, HTML, and web design starting in
elementary grades. And the model is sustainable because alumni come back to
teach or volunteer and support the school financially. “This program makes it
possible for students to disrupt the traditional social hierarchy, so by the
time they graduate they are ready to apply their skills in the real world,”
Sunil said. “This exciting initiative provides a game-changing
advantage for the students.”

School Director Kusum Bijalwan credits Shalah’s ability to make every
student feel loved and capable as a major reason so many children excel. A
graduate of Mother Miracle herself with two university degrees, Kusum said that
her experience gave her opportunities she never imagined. “I joined Mother Miracle School when I was just an 8-year-old
little girl with no dreams. I had never imagined that this school would change
my life forever. This school not only gave me the best education but also
taught me to be a good human being,” she said. “Today I am managing the whole
school. I am now independent and supporting my family financially. I am so
grateful to Shahla mam for giving me this opportunity and changing my life.”

The school is expanding and will open an advanced technology center in 2024. The new facility will offer
technical training to current students and others in the community who have
completed 12th grade at a local school. The center will teach coding
languages and their applications; staff will include full-time teachers,
coders, developers, project managers, and support staff.

Since 2015, Shalah has received numerous awards for her work from the US
and Indian governments, including the 2022 Ellis Island Medal of Honor in New York, the 2022 Fastest
Growing Education Excellence Award in New Delhi, and the 2018 Mahatma Gandhi Samman Award
at the UK House of Commons. Learn more about Mother Miracle School, sponsor a student, and donate

RChilli Helps ERP Recruiters Retain Candidate Database Moving from Taleo To Oracle

San Ramon, CA ( Monday Jan 30, 2023 @ 7:00 AM Pacific —

RChilli covers another milestone in its endeavor to help Oracle recruiters streamline their hiring practices and enhance positive recruiter experience.

Taleo, an industry leader in the talent acquisition market, saw an improved alternative, Oracle Recruiting Cloud, in the Oracle HCM Cloud Suite that was released in June 2018. However, many Taleo clients moving to Oracle faced a familiar obstacle- transferring the candidate data. Because of this hiccup, many Taleo users have avoided making the shift.

RChilli’s parsing solution, powered by deep learning, helps ERP recruiters with seamless data migration of parsed and structured candidate data without losing access to the data of potential candidates. This has helped them retain a parsed and structured format of the candidate database.

The dilemma in transitioning from Taleo to Oracle HCM left companies with a database that only contained first name, last name, email address, and the attached resume. This created a nightmare for the Talent Acquisition team to find candidates for their positions.

The team of industry experts at RChilli worked diligently to transfer accurately parsed candidate data. Thus populating all of the relevant fields of information to each of these candidate profiles. Therefore, the Talent Acquisition Team could effectively search across all of their data.

Sharing his views on the crisis, Joshua Adams, director of ERP operations at RChilli, explains “our team with immense knowledge in data migration helped one of our clients get accurately parsed data of 30K resumes in its database while moving from Taleo to Oracle.”

He shares, “our team worked at the backend to migrate the data they fetched from the Oracle database. We accurately parsed the data into the appropriate fields on each candidate profile, normalized the data with RChilli’s expansive Taxonomy, and stored it in the Oracle database.

To understand how RChilli bridges the gap between a recruiter and prospective candidates, visit RChilli.

RChilli is the trusted partner for parsing, matching, and data enrichment, providing companies, in 37+ countries, with solutions built for the future of technology and recruiting. RChilli’s innovative products, backed by an industry-leading tech stack, power the processing of 3.5+ billion docs a year for 1600+ top global recruiting platforms.

3 Story Software (3SS) Upgrades its Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Features

NEW MILFORD, CONNECTICUT ( Thursday Jan 19, 2023 @ 7:00 AM Eastern —

In its latest development release, 3 Story Software LLC (3SS), a comprehensive and contingent workforce management system, reinforced its commitment to support its clients in building more diverse candidate and worker populations by updating its Diversity, Equity & Inclusion features.

3SS has 165 clients globally and strives to develop features that provide its clients with relevant data to build diverse and inclusive workplaces. The upgraded Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) functionality features a new candidate survey that captures DE&I data further upstream in the hiring process. It also changed how this data is collected to optimize submissions so clients may collect more meaningful data from their candidates and workers.

Now with 3SS, clients can see data related to the diversity of candidate pools during the recruitment process, in addition to their active worker populations. Comparing these two data sets is imperative for clients to understand their company’s hiring preferences, and who engages with a company’s services and customers.

3SS ensures that candidates and workers can opt out of providing DE&I information at any point in the hiring and onboarding process and that this data is confidential and stored securely. Data that 3SS collects on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is anonymized such that candidate or worker information is separate from the data used for statistical reporting.

3SS is continuously learning from its clients so it may optimize how companies hire and manage their non-employee workers across the globe. Most 3SS features are thus developed with input from its clients globally, with updates and new features being released every 5 weeks.

InfoMart Named “Best and Brightest Company to Work For in the Nation” & One of “Atlanta’s 20 Largest Women-Owned Firms”

Talent Board Releases 2022 Candidate Experience Benchmark Research Report

San Francisco, CA ( Wednesday Jan 11, 2023 @ 7:00 AM Pacific —

Talent Board, a non-profit organization dedicated to elevating and researching quality candidate experiences, today released its 2022 North American Candidate Experience Benchmark Research Report. The report shares confidential and anonymous feedback from more than 150 companies and nearly 200,000 candidates around the world who participated in Talent Board’s research program (also known as The CandEs), which delves into every aspect of the recruiting and candidate experiences, from pre-application to onboarding.

Among the key findings from this research are:

  • Candidate resentment is on the rise globally: For the second year in a row, candidate resentment (a measure of how negatively job seekers rate their candidate experiences) has risen around the world, specifically in the regions of EMEA, APAC, and Latin America. In EMEA, resentment rose 10%; in APAC, it rose 17%; and in Latin America, it was up 100%. The only region where candidate resentment didn’t rise in 2022 was North America, where resentment rates dropped by 14% (although still historically high at 12% overall).
  • Top candidate research content for 2022: Candidates said company values was the top research content for their job search in 2022 — before they apply for a job — something that’s never been more valuable to candidates in Talent Board’s benchmark research.
  • Top recruiting priorities for 2023: Participants said their top recruiting priorities for 2023 are onboarding (cited by 40%); the candidate experience (cited by 38%); and diversity/inclusion, which tied with employee referrals (both cited by 37% of participants).

The largest and longest-running study of its kind, Talent Board’s annual benchmark research has evaluated responses from more than 1,350 employers and 1.4 million job seekers since its launch in 2011. Each year, the research covers the main constituents of positive and fair candidate experiences, how well employers are delivering these experiences, and specifically what CandE Award winners (companies with the highest-rated candidate experiences) are doing better than other employers to deliver positive experiences.

“Although candidate resentment lessened during and immediately following the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s higher than ever globally,” said Kevin W. Grossman, Talent Board president. “Employers need to keep in mind that resentment has major repercussions to their brands and the bottom lines such as whether or not candidates will apply to their jobs again, whether they’ll refer colleagues and friends, whether they’ll be brand advocates, and whether they’ll buy a company’s products and services. Even in North America, where resentment levels fell slightly in 2022, they’re still high.”

“The fact that onboarding is the number one priority for TA teams in the coming year is very telling,” added Ron Machamer, Talent Board director of global programs. “Too many employers lost new hires in 2022 before they even started or shortly after day one, that’s how competitive the talent market has gotten and that’s how important it is to get onboarding right. Even our CandE Award winners wrestled with pre-boarding through onboarding this past year. It’s no wonder TA teams plan to put extra emphasis on this phase of the process in 2023.”

Other CandE Report Takeaways

A few other key takeaways from the new 2022 CandE report include:

  • TA Teams Stumble on Post-Application Communication: Although timely and steady candidate communications have long been a critical component of a positive candidate experience, 34% of candidates were still waiting one to two months (or more) to hear about the next steps after they submitted an application, a troubling 48% higher than in 2021.
  • Top AI-Based Tech Purchases in 2023: Many TA teams plan to make AI tech purchases in the year ahead to help improve their recruiting effectiveness. 79% plan to buy tech that removes bias from application and screening processes; 72% plan to buy tech that measures and predicts employee job-changing behavior; and 57% plan to buy tech that aids with job performance predictions through job simulations.

The comprehensive 2022 Talent Board North American Benchmark Research Report can be downloaded in its entirety today here.

Talent Board will make the new EMEA, APAC, and Latin American research briefs available before the end of January.

For organizations interested in joining next year’s candidate experience benchmark research program, the 2023 program is now open and companies can learn more about participation here.

RChilli Automates its Support with Docker Implementation

San Ramon, CA ( Wednesday Dec 14, 2022 @ 2:50 PM Pacific —

RChilli takes another step in enhancing its customer experience by automating its support with Docker implementation. This implementation is used for faster deployments and provides isolation with other applications, making it more secure.

The reason for implementing docker is to provide an end-to-end solution where the developers can build their codes and test them on containers without any environmental differences and provide faster updates to customers. It is a multi-cloud platform and can be run on any OS that supports docker independent of the cloud providers or VM providers. It also provides high scalability and more speed in loading processes. Apart from this, it offers compatibility & maintainability by providing standard repeatable development, build, test, and production environments.

With this implementation, the customers will see a remarkable improvement in the performance of RChilli technology. They will save a lot of time in fixing the issues as this solution will automate the entire process. The integration is also going to be very easy for the users who are using DevOps.

Talking about this implementation, Jitender Thakur, Head of Information and Data Security for RChilli, said, “Our support process involved a lot of steps. It was a manual process that included troubleshooting. For each update or technical glitch, the customers had to contact us to resolve the issues. But implementing docker has eliminated all these lengthy steps. In case of any infrastructure issue, the customers can retain everything themselves quickly without wasting time in contacting us and getting the issue fixed. To sum up, it will increase security and enhance productivity.”

HRO Today Unveils the HR100 List of the Best HR Departments

Philadelphia, PA ( Friday Dec 2, 2022 @ 7:00 AM Eastern —

HRO Today has
annually ranked HR service providers through Baker’s Dozen Customer
Satisfaction Ratings™ for nearly two decades. Its research revealed that
while there are many rankings of various aspects of HR, there isn’t one
definitive source of which companies are the best for human resources. Enter HRO Today’s HR100.

The HRO Today research
team reviewed nearly 1,100 companies to come up with the top 100 HR
departments. HRO Today’s HR100
scores and ranks HR departments in eight core areas: workplace culture,
employee benefits, diversity and inclusion, employee development and talent
management, human resources innovation, leadership development, talent
acquisition, and employer brand. Performance in these core categories is
aggregated, forming an index that provides a reasonable score for overall HR

The HRO Today research team collected public data from nearly 40 established benchmarking and ranking programs in the identified categories to create the ranking.
Examples of these programs include HRO
‘s Most Admired Employer Brand Awards, Fortune
’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, Training
’s Top 100, and Glassdoor ratings. This generated a score based
equally on the depth and breadth of outside and internal recognition.
The data is then aggregated and weighted to create the final score, producing
the index used in the ranking.

To generate the score, the HRO
research team first examined the total number of lists within
each of the HR areas outlined in a particular company appeared on. Weights
were assigned to each source depending on the scope and exclusivity of the
list. The raw scores were then summed, and an index was established to create
the final score.

“The reason HRO Today produces the HR100 each year is
to promote best practices in human resources,” says Larry Basinait, HRO TOday VP of Market Research, who manages the HR100 and Baker’s Dozen processes. “The companies that rank on the HR
100 are those that other companies should study and emulate and look to
as a potential source of innovation within their own organization. Those being
recognized on the list have the most accomplished human resources departments
in the nation, and are elevating the role of HR throughout the business

“Feeling Small” PSA Spotlights Emotional Abuse Amid Peak Season for Domestic Violence

New York, NY ( Thursday Nov 24, 2022 @ 6:00 AM Mountain —

As tensions rise during political debates at the Thanksgiving dinner table or other holiday season gatherings with family, so do incidents of domestic violence, research shows. The societal expectation to be joyous during the holidays often has the opposite effect on abuse victims, which is why two leading domestic violence nonprofits are lighting up the streets of Times Square and beyond this week with their second national domestic violence billboard campaign.

After receiving industry recognition for ‘The Last I’m Sorry’ campaign, Safe in Harm’s Way Foundation Inc.,, and Neon, An IPG Health Company are collaborating once again to blow the whistle on domestic violence with another compelling PSA.

The PSA imagery thoughtfully uses the body language of a husband and wife sitting across the dinner table to spotlight the underlying scars of emotional abuse. The man in the image appears to be looming over the woman, physically encroaching in her space, while the woman is simultaneously shrinking in fear, discomfort, and shame. Along with the chilling image, is the take-home message that many abuse victims need to hear– “No one should make you feel small.”

“The essence of this campaign is the feeling one gets when one feels less than or diminished in an intimate relationship. The nuance exists in this unspoken, and painful, relationality between partners. We focused on this simple truth so that people can draw a connection to their own lived experience, even on an intuitive level,” said Sam Lauro, Group Art Supervisor at Neon.

The imagery was crafted using CGI in partnership with Carioca Studio, a full-service visual content house based in Romania, using the elements of body language and expression to bring to life the uncomfortable feeling of being stifled in your own relationship.

Featured on over 340 national screens in high-traffic areas like Times Square’s entrance, Union Station in D.C., office lobbies and elevators, gas stations, billboards, digital bulletins, and mall kiosks throughout the country, this “Small” domestic violence awareness campaign is anything but.

“We’re on a mission to disrupt complacency in a very public way because getting a message like this in front of domestic violence victims is not an easy task. Abusers using forms of isolation as a weapon to control their victims are to blame for that,” said Caroline Markel Hammond, CEO of Safe in Harm’s Way Foundation.

Safe in Harm’s Way is an online platform that safely connects survivors with healing resources, and provides a one-of-a-kind public database of conviction records. The organization recognizes acts of intense cell phone monitoring, prohibiting contact with family and friends, or generally limiting a partner’s access to the outside world as incredibly common red flags for domestic violence. This form of abusive isolation has driven Safe in Harm’s Way to return to the billboard format over and over, making this campaign the non-profit’s third appearance on national billboards

Ashley Rumschlag, CEO & President of, the largest online searchable directory of domestic violence programs and shelters in the U.S. and Canada, argues that while billboards are a uniquely important medium for reaching domestic violence victims, the journey to formulating an escape plan often starts with a Google search.

“There are over 10 million online searches each month for information regarding domestic violence in just the US and Canada, and we want to be right there on the other end of that search, prepared to offer all of the right resources when victims need it most,” said Rumschlag.

All campaign images mention both Safe In Harm’s Way and, along with the initiative’s microsite developed by Neon, An IPG Health Company. The first of its kind in the space, the site itself is designed as a comprehensive decision tree matrix; a series of directive questions that address visitors’ specific situational needs and provide them with resources based on their answers.

“We kept quick, direct, and as safe as possible, knowing that oftentimes individuals will only have a few precious seconds to get to the help or information they need. Fully equipped with innovative safety features to ensure victims are protected when seeking help, the site is also inclusive, and informative, and we hope it will be a lifeline for anyone who may need it,” said Morgan Mellas, Senior Art Director at Neon.

I am thrilled to join Prosperix and share the company’s dynamic, flexible solutions that allow our clients to become agile and resilient, so they are ready to meet every change that comes along.”

A savvy trendwatcher, she said that as the global economy continues to change in unpredictable ways, companies need to be able to respond quickly. Her recent experience at a large staffing agency provided even more evidence that capital expenditures are a concern for many, causing delayed projects, reduced hiring budgets, and even potential downsizing. Some more fortunate firms that are expanding are also facing challenges with today’s continued worker shortage, especially with certain skill sets. “Prosperix has a solution that allows every client to tap into the right talent pools and find the best talent that fits within their budget,” Danielle said. “And we can help them modernize their processes with minimal disruption and cost.”

Prosperix’s sales and operations teams work in close concert, and both will benefit from Danielle’s deep and broad knowledge and expertise. “Danielle is truly a client evangelist who is committed to building not only individual client successes but also to improving the future of work. Her consultative style is exactly what we need to continue our push to provide a candidate-centric experience that secures the best talent for every job, no matter what the parameters,” said Scott Giroux, vice president of sales and operations at Prosperix. “She will help us ensure that our clients won’t be left behind as the pace of change only accelerates.”

HRO Today Association Honors 70+ Companies in 2022 Awards Program headline

Philadelphia, PA ( Tuesday Nov 1, 2022 @ 7:00 AM Eastern —

We are pleased to announce that the number of
companies and individuals selected as finalists for the 2022 HRO Today
Association Awards Program represents more than 70 companies. Open to members and non-members of the
Association, many submissions were received for multiple categories in three
regions: APAC, EMEA, and North America over the last 9 months.

“The Association is excited to
once again honor the essential work that HR professionals do each day in all
corners of the world,” said Renée Preston, Global Executive Director of the HRO Today  Association. “Our finalists represent many facets of HR in a variety of industries
and are shining examples of the important role that HR individuals and teams
maintain within their companies and to the customers and employees they serve. Their
work represents the cutting-edge role that HR plays and is helping to push the
profession to greater heights.”

The awards for the North America and
EMEA regions will be presented on November 16 during the HRO Today
Association Conference
Awards Program, a virtual micro-event that will
explore how to best configure HR to achieve the new Operational Excellence
that’s required to meet the next wave of change. The
right partners help HR to succeed, the wrong choices lead to failure. The HRO
Association Conference & Awards Program helps bridge the gap for
providers and practitioners. Individual and Team category winners will
be announced between three educational sessions which will be presented by
industry experts Dr. Peter Cappelli, Director of the Wharton Center for HR; Zachary
Misko, President, Emeritus, HRO Today Association; and a panel
discussion with several CHROs ready to
share their success stories and how they welcomed and overcame the many
challenges HR has had to face this past year.

The quality of nominations highlights how
individuals and teams rose to the occasion in a year when, in many cases, all
eyes were on HR to help overcome obstacles, redirect resources, and impact
change. The finalists demonstrate the
vision and experience used to effectively manage the challenges and
opportunities emerging in HR and go above and beyond in answering their call
to duty. HRO Today sees
this as a sign that Human Resource professionals know that in order to continue
to stand out in the HR industry today, a company, service or product must go
beyond basic ROI. It must be truly unique in its ability to demonstrate
innovative value, first adopters and even risk takers, with ideas and concepts
that deliver game-changing results that are not simply “new” but, inventive –
with innovative services, technologies and results.

Winners in the APAC region will be announced
at a special virtual ceremony on December 15 at 8:00 PM ET. This meeting will be
open to members and nonmembers.
