ZipRecruiter®, a leading online employment marketplace that actively connects people to their next great opportunity, has recently announced a strategic technology collaboration with UKG, a significant HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions provider. This partnership aims to strengthen ZipRecruiter’s enterprise hiring capabilities and build on its extensive integration offerings, including over 200 applicant tracking system (ATS) and human capital management (HCM) suite integrations.
Integrating ZipRecruiter into a company’s preferred ATS or HCM suite, like UKG, improves the recruitment experience by removing the burden of administrative work so that talent acquisition teams can focus on what matters most – building relationships with candidates. Employers also benefit by gaining access to ZipRecruiter Apply, a frictionless application process that can be accessed from any device, increasing applicant volume by 300% per job, on average2.
Speaking about the initiative, Senior Vice President, Product Strategy & Enterprise Solutions of ZipRecruiter, Matt Plummer, said:
In today’s highly competitive landscape, enterprise organizations face unique challenges and complexities in their recruitment efforts. We are committed to supporting these organizations by providing innovative solutions to simplify the recruiting process from end to end. By partnering with a leading HCM suite provider like UKG, we can better service employers of all sizes, empowering them to streamline their hiring processes, make data-driven decisions, and ultimately build high-performing teams.
With this collaboration, organizations that utilize both ZipRecruiter and the UKG Pro HCM suite benefit from having a convenient way to tap into ZipRecruiter’s candidate network and technology while being able to manage candidate workflow from UKG. Candidate information flows directly into the ATS and attaches to the appropriate requisition, resolving multiple platform workflows and housing all candidate management in one centralized location.
Mike May, Vice President of Technology Partnerships, UKG, added:
At UKG, we strive to create lifelong partnerships with our customers, helping them create modern people experiences to drive better business outcomes and anticipate employee needs beyond just work. By cultivating a highly engaged ecosystem of technology partners, including ZipRecruiter, we can help create a more seamless and empowering technology experience.
Co-founded in 2010 by Ian Siegel, Joe Edmonds, Ward Poulos and Will Redd, ZipRecruiter aims to make meaningful connections between job seekers and employers. Its sophisticated AI-matching technology is at the core of everything the company does—and by analyzing billions of user interactions, it’s always getting smarter. The platform improves the job search experience for millions of people every month and helps businesses of all sizes find and hire suitable candidates quickly. In 2017, Facebook (now Meta) partnered with the company and integrated ZipRecruiter into its platform.
In June, UKG announced its acquisition of Immedis, a global payroll provider with technology and services operating in more than 160 countries. The deal included a collaboration between UKG and Immedis, One View, which harnessed the strengths of both organizations to transform the “traditionally fragmented global payroll model.”
