Initially something of an outlier, hybrid work has managed to convince employees of its benefits, to the point where companies that want to go back to – well, before – need to think twice if they don’t want to face a wave of resignations, as Apple did. But can this change go further? Could we […]

The merger of the SkillValue and Pentalog platforms is a LOGICAL operational decision: sourcing + evaluation + recruitment + freelancing + outsourcing + consulting, all under the same umbrella and all with the same level of standards and quality! But above all, it is proof that the market has changed and that we will all now be able to focus on the one answer that matters.
The future of work is changing, and so is recruitment. To carry on with their business, today, tech companies recruit 100% remotely. Done right, and with the proper online assessment tools for recruitment, virtual hiring brings positive results. Sometimes it’s hard to develop in-house online tests for recruitment. That’s why my advice is to look for an HR partner that will take the burden of recruitment off your shoulders.
Even though the year started very badly, 2020 still had some positive surprises for SkillValue. The numbers prove it: recruiting is on the rise, freelancers are more in demand than ever, the number of tech tests sent has skyrocketed and our freelance community continues to grow. Let’s look back at the tumultuous, challenging year we faced and how we got through it all with one motto: adaptation.

Investment, brand awareness, product-market fit, clients, retaining clients- these are just some of the factors founders need to consider alongside if you want to hire freelancers for startup.
Is your HR team struggling to hire top tech talent? What if I told you there is a way to improve and even accelerate your IT screening process for performant profiles? Data-driven recruitment is a strategic approach to talent acquisition. It is the smart approach because it provides valuable insights about candidates. Such technology-enabled recruitment is now available a click away.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us quickly shifted to remote work and remote recruiting. Since we specialize in technical recruitment, remote hiring strategies helped us even before the pandemic to attract top talent no matter the candidate’s location or technical expertise. We’re used to searching for the best candidates everywhere and assess them using […]
