SHL Recent Developments

In October 2021, SHL begin its revolutionary SHL Video Feedback. The first of its kind, this hiring tool provides automated and personalized feedback for every candidate in the recruitment process. Communication and feedback play a vital role in creating exceptional candidate experiences and memorable employer branding. With SHL’s Video Feedback companies can create brand advocates even among candidates who were not hired. Additionally, automated feedback empowers your recruiters to deliver actionable, strength-based insights to every candidate, even at scale.

In April 2021, SHL has transformed talent mobility forever with its Mobilize Solution, increasing the accuracy of talent mobility decisions with the unique and transformational Power of Context. One of the Solution’s offerings is leadership mobility support. With context, organizations are 4x more likely to make the right leadership mobility decisions, including High Potentials, Strategic Alignment, Succession Planning, and Mergers & Acquisitions—all leadership mobility answers from one solution.

In June 2020, SHL launched its Technology Hiring Solution to help customers automate and seamlessly scale the tech hiring process, all in a secure, remote environment that accounts for the current COVID-19 reality and beyond.

Attracting and hiring talent in the tech industry has never been more challenging. Traditional recruiting isn't effective, as resumes and CVs alone are not a valid measure of skill and potential. Quality talent requires remote assessment, faster offers, and an engaging candidate experience. In fact, today more than 90% of candidates for tech roles typically have multiple offers on the table. SHL’s new solution addresses this reality by cutting hiring time in half and increasing the candidate pool by 45% over traditional methods.

In April 2018, SHL was reinvented. The company unveiled an updated brand identity on the first day under the ownership of Exponent Private Equity. The SHL brand is defined by a new mission, set of values, and logo designed to more powerfully convey the company’s heritage and leadership in talent assessment and management.
