Recite Me Partner with Eploy to Provide an Inclusive Online Candidate Journey
We are delighted to announce a new Partnership with Eploy, a market leader in enterprise cloud-based ATS and e-recruitment software, to support inclusive recruitment.
What does our partnership with Eploy mean?
The partnership will enable customers to provide their candidates with an inclusive online journey. Eploy and Recite Me connect through the Eploy candidate portal to make recruitment easy and engaging for everyone, and accessible for all. Candidates are able to use the Recite Me toolbar to customise the content of the website in a way that works best for them. Users can read text aloud, translate content into another language, make styling changes to the page and aid reading with a virtual ruler and a magnifying glass.
Both Recite Me and Eploy are excited about this partnership.
"We are delighted to welcome Recite Me to the Eploy Marketplace as a partner that our customers can utilise to provide a better, more inclusive user experience with their web accessibility software. Eploy is committed to delivering amazing experiences for everyone involved in the recruitment journey and working alongside Recite Me provides greater flexibility to customise the candidate experience in a way that works best for each individual.”
Chris Bogh, CTO at Eploy
“Recite Me exists to create inclusive experiences online, so it makes perfect sense to partner with Eploy to provide accessible cloud-based ATS and e-recruitment software. Being able to provide an inclusive candidate experience is key to engaging and attracting the very best talent to achieve your business goals.”
Ross Linnett, Recite Me CEO and Founder
Why is Inclusive recruitment important?
A survey of 4,000 people by the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI) found that 75% of disabled jobseekers have been impacted by their condition when job hunting and 54% have faced hurdles at multiple stages in the recruitment process. Research shows that on average disabled people apply for 60% more jobs before securing one. This demonstrates that inaccessible online and digital communications are preventing disabled jobseekers from flourishing in the recruitment process.
How have we helped Dunelm through the partnership?
The leading home furnishings retailer Dunelm has been using the Eploy candidate portal for some time to provide an inclusive experience to attract, engage and manage candidates. They are able to offer candidates a customised experience so they can perceive and understand content in a way that better suits them. This enables Dunelm to reach a wider talent pool and create equal opportunities.
“Consideration to an inclusive recruitment process were delivered through removing barriers to ensure opportunities are fully accessible to all. Recite Me were engaged to provide a completely web-accessible site that could be customised for users needs to engage and interact with the Dunelm brand and for Dunelm to reach a wider audience.”
Paul Jenkins, Dunelm
