StellarEmploy is Helping Customers Hire Great Employees with Confidence

In the United States, 40% of the labor force is employed in hourly wage jobs earning less than $20 an hour. Although these jobs are the foundation of our economy, employers often face high turnover, reaching 100% annually. There is a clear disconnect in how hourly job candidates are being assessed and hired, leading to high job drop-out. This was a problem that seemed ripe for a technological and data-driven solution for the founders of StellarEmploy. StellarEmploy replaces traditional resume and screening questions with a mobile friendly survey that uncovers workers’ underlying preferences.

With StellarEmploy’s survey with 50 questions and an average completion time of 15 minutes, employers can learn applicants’ preference for teamwork compared to solo work, or multi-tasking compared to a more focused work environment. This enables them to understand the prominent characteristics of their workplace and different hourly job categories, all based on empirical data. Now, instead of just crossing their fingers and hoping a new hire stays past the critical 90 day mark, they have the raw materials to understand why a majority of workers fail to engage or perform in the first month.
