IMS Oneworld Selects WorkLLama as Strategic Partner to Launch Branded Talent Community Solution

New solution helps corporations build talent pipelines, hire faster, enhance brand visibility and reduce costs

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IMS Oneworld, part of the IMS Group, is pleased to announce the launch of its Branded Talent Community solution in partnership with technology provider WorkLLama. This new end-to-end solution is designed to build, nurture and grow Branded Talent Communities, resulting in higher-quality candidates, expedited hiring, greater brand reach and reduced talent acquisition costs.

The app-based engagement builds, nurtures and grows an underutilized candidate database into a curated and engaged branded talent community and pipeline for direct sourcing and recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) programs. The solution utilizes a game-changing technology platform and dedicated services team to keep candidates engaged while empowering human connectivity, transforming these talent communities into brand ambassadors that generate highly qualified referrals.

Katie Bussey, president of IMS Oneworld, commented, “I couldn’t be prouder of or more excited about the end-to-end solution we developed, the technology bells and whistles it encompasses, the cost savings it delivers and the overall experience it creates. We are thrilled to officially launch this in the marketplace today.”

The solution is powered by a white-labeled platform to effectively customize and deliver an organization’s brand experience. It features Sofi, an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven conversational bot, acting as the spokesperson and brand ambassador for the Community. Sofi is driven by AI and utilizes natural language processing (NLP) to match the tone of each corporation, ensuring an on-brand experience. Additionally, each Community will encompass comprehensive engagement features and multi-level referral capabilities. This next-level candidate experience is available in an iOS or Android app and is serviced by a dedicated team to ensure flawless delivery and execution.

We have a true partner in IMS Oneworld and are excited to put technology at the forefront of Branded Talent Communities,” said Sudhakar Maruvada, founder and CEO of WorkLLama. “Many corporations aren’t leveraging their greatest asset: their existing talent pools. Our partnership delivers a comprehensive services and technology solution not available in the market today. It provides the breadth of services companies need to successfully manage their direct sourcing and RPO programs via a single platform. It’s about using technology to maximize human connections and relationships.”

IMS Oneworld creates a unified experience and supports a total talent strategy for sourcing direct hire and contingent candidates by augmenting existing talent acquisition and contingent labor program solutions.
