A recruitment partnership between talent outsourcing provider AMS and WayUp, an HR tech platform that recruits diverse candidates in the early stage of their careers, has been announced.
New recruitment partnership to build more diverse talent pipeline
The partnership will give AMS’ clients access to the platform’s six million-plus candidates from over 7,100 colleges and universities across the US, with over 71% self-identifying as underrepresented minorities.
Over the last seven years, WayUp’s candidates have gained roles in major global organisations, including Citi Group, Unilever, and Johnson & Johnson.
The partnership comes as the pandemic subsides and firms begin to step up their hiring processes which present an opportunity to reassess the diversity of their talent pipelines and make changes to fulfil diversity and inclusion objectives.
Jo-Ann Feely, Global Managing Director, Innovation, AMS said: “We’re thrilled to introduce WayUp’s innovative business model and technology solution to AMS clients as the latest development in our sourcing technology strategy.
“The company’s advanced data analytics and streamlined dashboards enable organisations to identify emerging-talent candidates that provide diverse perspectives, skills, experiences and roles to help our clients accelerate innovation and success. WayUp’s platform gives AMS another opportunity to help companies respond to our dynamic marketplace by designing workforces built for change and finding diverse people with the right skills.”
Liz Wessel, Co-founder and CEO at WayUp, added: “Through this partnership, we are excited for AMS clients to gain unique access to our diverse user base. We know how much diversity and equity means to AMS, and we cannot wait to extend the WayUp product suite to both AMS and all of their client partners. I truly believe this will help more employers build a resilient workforce that can evolve and thrive under any circumstance.”
