Holmdel, NJ, October 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — iCIMS, the talent cloud company, today announced the acquisition of SkillSurvey, a pioneer in skills verification and digital reference checking that helps more than 2,300 companies make the best possible talent decisions.

SkillSurvey uses assumptions to verify the skills and qualifications of candidates. As a leading provider of cloud-based reference checking, SkillSurvey’s solutions help organizations save time and money and quickly onboard the right employees to drive better performance results. Its patented reference checking solution is revolutionary, verifying skills and providing feedback from references in a much faster and more transparent way that can be used earlier in the hiring process. SkillsServe also has dedicated certification solutions and capabilities to meet the unique recruiting needs of healthcare organizations. Together, iCIMS and SkillSurvey will help enterprise businesses attract, engage, hire and advance the talent they need to build winning teams.

“At ICIMS, we are focused on providing talent acquisition teams with everything they need to find and recruit the best talent,” said Steve Lucas, CEO of iCIMS. “With iCIMS Talent Cloud, SkillSurvey enables companies to automate timely assessment and verification of candidate skills with digital reference checking and reliable, data-driven insights.”

With the acquisition of SkillSurvey, iCIMS’ community of over 4,000 customers can reduce the time and cost of traditional reference checking. SkillSurvey has partnered with industrial and organizational (I/O) psychologists to create a library of hundreds of job-specific surveys that help reference rate candidates on specific behaviors relevant to a given job. This system more accurately predicts new hire success and reduces first-year turnover.
