Illumeo Announces the GreatFit™ Talent Identification and Recruiting Platform

Is there a more frustrating document than the resume? They are like snowflakes, no two are alike! Resumes tell you precious little about any applicant’s actual capabilities, instead providing seemingly randomized, non-standard snippets that typically give you next to nothing on which to make a critical decision. Companies accept or reject tens of millions of applicants annually based on these barest of threads. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a better way?

Illumeo, Inc., a leader in professional development and learning for corporate professionals, is pleased to announce the release of the GreatFit™ Talent Identification and Recruiting Platform. GreatFit™ utilizes Illumeo’s competency assessment framework to provide a “Fit Score” to literally any job spec based on any applicant’s competency profile.

By using a scalable and cloud-based competency assessment, Illumeo brings massive scalability to the formerly intractable challenge of gathering a lot of meaningful and comparable data quickly, on a large number of internal or external candidates, for any position. What used to be a time-consuming and imprecise resume-vetting task, with measurably terrible outcomes, GreatFit™ turns into a far faster and more insightful process that produces more certainty for any recruiter or hiring manager.

The platform allows hiring managers and recruiters to very quickly assess existing employees and potential recruits in a consistent and meaningful manner. Companies can use assessments to find the perfect candidate with exactly the skills they need, eliminating the skill set mismatch that plagues the hiring process.

Once hired, the assessment lives on and gets periodically updated as a way to tailor ongoing learning and development for any employee via Illumeo’s Expertise Management platform,, cementing that hire as a perfect fit for the company, improving employee satisfaction and reducing costly turnover. In a world where companies struggle to find the talent they need to grow and thrive, Illumeo’s GreatFit™ Talent Identification and Recruiting Platform is a perfect fit.
