eQuests Big Data for HR Expands its Reach by Aggregating Data from Multiple Sources

SAN RAMON, Calif. — October 3, 2012 — eQuest today announced that its “Big Data for HR” service has widened its reach beyond its own powerful data collection warehouse to include employment data records from a wide variety of highly respected, third party sources. Data sources include salary, supply and demand, hiring statistics by source, and reports by governmental agencies from around the world.

eQuest has already amassed over 1.1 billion job performance records through its own job posting delivery service and routinely collects one million data records per day.

eQuest consultants utilize this highly prized data to develop more effective recruitment campaigns, reduce spending, and target candidates faster for their customers. The program provides companies a clearer understanding of the entire recruitment process.

David Bernstein, Vice President of eQuest’s Big Data division says, “Data is coming at organizations more quickly than ever before. To remain competitive, all organizations need to analyze both internal and external data, as quickly and cost effectively as possible. This fuller spectrum of incoming information allows us to predicatively leverage a company’s recruitment strategy well into the future.”
