Kalibrr’s Head of Artificial Intelligence Research wins World Bank Data Science Competition

Aivin Solatorio, Kalibrr’s Senior Manager for Research & Development, came in 5th out of over 2,000 entrants to the World Bank’s machine learning competition called “Pover-T Tests: Predicting Poverty” which ended last February 28, 2018. He also won the bonus prize awarded to the top participant coming from a developing country.

The competition was hosted by data science platform, Driven Data and funded by World Bank’s Knowledge for Change Program, with the aim of engaging data scientists from developing countries and applying a cost-effective solution to testing approaches to poverty prediction.

Poverty measurement and prediction is an important starting point to determine if poverty reduction policies and strategies are effective. Currently, measuring and predicting poverty is very challenging, time consuming and costly— typically done through in-depth surveys on household consumption. The competition helps World Bank see how harnessing machine learning and data science can predict poverty status based on easy-to-collect information. These models would allow World Bank to more rapidly measure the effectiveness of poverty alleviation policies and interventions to maximize the impact of these strategies.

“I was really happy when I learned that I won the bonus prize because I know that some participants there are elite Kaggle competitors. Putting the prize aside; however, coming from a developing country myself, I immediately recognized the significance of the competition and its corresponding social impact.” Aivin said. “While AI technology is frequently associated with loss of jobs; this World Bank initiative shows the positive aspect of AI – providing novel solutions to help directly address global problems such as poverty.” he added.

At Kalibrr, Aivin and his team work on applying artificial intelligence to help solve the problem of job matching and recruitment.

Rediscovering the human touch for HR Professionals

Coming from last month’s theme “#GirlBoss: Power Women Leading in 21st Century Manila”, Kalibrr Communities set their sights on understanding the people behind Human Resources. This April’s Kalibrr Communities focused on the challenges that different HR professionals go through, hence the title “Human Rediscovered: Putting the Human Back in Human Resources.”

“Kalibrr Communities is not just another meet up. This is an avenue for dialogue among different professionals from different industries.” says Julius Paras, Kalibrr Vice President for Customer Engagement as he kicked off the event. He then challenged the audience to understand the different challenges that HR professionals face on a day to day basis.

The stage was graced by experts from different companies such as Alex Gentry, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Sprout Solutions, Mary Solina, Customer Success Manager of EngageSPARK, Jojo Gumino, Head of Learning Partnerships of STORM Learning, and Jaclyn Cayetano, Founder and Chief Brain of Zentellect Corp.

Alex Gentry painted a picture of the Human Resources Industry in the Philippines. Alex pointed out that innovation and technology is one of the main drivers in creating an effective HR team. HR departments should be considered as strategic partners, developing programs and processes to support the changing needs of the business.

Mary Solina gave a very interesting perspective on technology integration in HR. She pointed out there is resistance in adopting technology because of fear. However, she stressed that technology can never replace the personal human touch that HR professionals bring. Technology is meant to complement and improve HR processes.  

The last speaker, Jojo Gumino focused on employee engagement and empowerment. She highlighted how giving employees the power of choice can positively impact the way they work and how they will grow in the company.

Kalibrr Talks About Recruiting in the Digital Age at PCAAE

In this age when everything is mobile and almost everyone is online, how can companies and businesses leverage technology to reach and attract talents?

This was what Julius Paras, Kalibrr’s VP for customer engagement, discussed about at the Philippine Council of Associations and Association Executives (PCAAE) Association Summit 5 held last November 23 at the Philippine International Convention Center Manila.

Speaking in front of company executives from different industries here and abroad, he shared how today’s recruiting processes is different compared to that of years ago.

“We used to walk-in an office and submit our resumes to the secretary, or browse job openings in the newspaper. Today, finding a job is as easy as browsing online on your phone or on a desktop, open a job portal, and click ‘Apply,'” he shared his jobseeker experience back in the days.

In his talk, Julius mentioned that by 2020, 60% of millennials will be the main driver of the APAC economy. He further added that in today’s dynamic recruiting landscape, high touch and high tech recruiting is necessary for successfully snaring qualified candidates in a tight labor market.

“Because we are now living in a digital world, recruitment is now going mobile, it’s going social. It’s time for companies to do the same,” mentioned Julius. Moreover, he expressed the importance of employer branding and continuing to build relationships with current employees, with candidates, and with potential candidates.

The PCAAE, dubbed as an “association of associations”, has over 1,000 members and supporters and was launched on November 20, 2013, to further advance association governance and management in member-serving organizations in the country.

Kalibrr CEO on Hiring Millennials at Recruitment Asia

Last November 22, SM Aura’s SMX Convention Center saw itself packed with HR professionals from all over Asia: Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and the Philippines. Their reason? Human Resources Magazine was hosting its annual Recruitment Asia event—and holding it for the first time on Philippine shores.

Recruitment Asia is “an annual recruitment-strategy-focused event gathering top-notch HR thought leaders from across industries in Asia.” And if last Wednesday was any indication, it definitely lived up to its promise. With an extensive lineup of experts in the recruitment industry, the day was filled with interesting insights on the future of recruitment—including one from Kalibrr’s very own CEO, Paul Rivera.

How to Manage Millennials

Ever since Kalibrr’s launch 5 years ago, it has steadily attracted a vast supply of millennial talent. “The average age of a Kalibrr employee is 24 years old,” Rivera shared at the talk. Mostly born after 1990, he went on to describe these millennial employees as entrepreneurial, eager learners, and impact-driven. “And I talk about [these millennials] because they’re the ones you want to recruit,” he added.

But in order to attract this popular demographic, you have to think like them first. After surveying said millennials about their job search experience, Rivera saw the gap that Kalibrr could fill:

Whether it’s helping candidates stand out from the crowd or enabling them to learn their suitability to multiple roles, Rivera emphasized that the traditional notions of recruitment no longer held. To help foster such meaningful connections with jobseekers, companies and recruiters alike would do well to meet millennials them where they were—just like how Kalibrr did to reach 1 million users. As Rivera quoted from Harvard Business Review:

“Ultimately, millennials are consumers of the marketplace. They shop around for the jobs that best align with their needs & life goals. [Companies] have to make it easy for prospects to choose them over their competition.”

But these insights, of course, were more applicable to a job platform, not a recruitment process. How then could these HR executives translate them into their profession?

Taking Your Employer Brand Digital

According to Rivera, the solution there was to focus on the digital sphere. After all, having an edge over the competition is really about meeting candidates where they were. As millennials increasingly shift much of their behavior to this channel—from shopping to communicating—recruiters had to make sure their hiring process was not only up to the challenge, but overhauled altogether.

“Companies need to transform ‘recruitment processes’ into a delightful ‘candidate experience’ that places candidate expectations at the center,” he added. And to learn what expectations their company may not be meeting, Rivera highly encouraged everybody in the room to apply to their own hiring stream anonymously.

There were also a few insights they could act on:

  • Jobseekers valued speed. Based on a survey by Indeed, the top companies in the world had application processes that lasted as short as 1 minute (like Netflix).
  • Jobseekers expect to hear back in less than a week. Based on a survey of 670 responses, 60.9% of jobseekers expect a response—whether positive or negative—in 7 days or less.
  • Own your social media pages. Jobseekers appreciate being able to contact companies via multiple channels: from Facebook pages, to LinkedIn and company career pages.
  • Facebook ads work to attract applicants if you invest in great artwork.
  • Tell your story with video.
  • Events engage the community offline.
  • Content establishes thought leadership.

A Few Final Findings

With all this in mind, Rivera had a final insight to leave recruiters with: “Don’t be disruptive. Be delightful.” Whether we’re enticing jobseekers to join the Kalibrr platform or launching new services for companies such as KalibrrPro, the company is always aiming to provide a great customer experience. And with these insights in mind, Rivera is optimistic that we’ll all get there—one jobseeker at a time.

Kalibrr talks about technology and social media at 30th ECOP meeting

As Philippine economy continues to grow and becomes more competitive, are companies and businesses poised to keep up with the latest trends in talent acquisition and retention?

This was the key issue at the 30th General Meeting of the Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP) held last July 20 at the Henry Sy Auditorium at St. Luke’s Medical Center – Global City. Attended by CEOs, executives, and HR Managers of top organizations in the Philippines, the membership meeting focused on the current profile of the Filipino working population and several strategies in attracting and retaining talent.

Kalibrr’s very own co-founder and CEO Paul Rivera shared knowledge on how the technology wave and the startup scene in the country are defining how Filipino talents choose and apply for jobs.

In his talk, Paul mentioned that Filipino talents today care about a company’s vision and purpose – something that startup companies use to brand themselves. He suggested that for other companies to keep up, they must learn to blend human resource (HR) practices with sales and marketing strategies in order to attract the best talent.

“Recruiting is the selling and marketing of careers. Recruiters are very good at screening but don’t do a good job at selling the opportunity, “ he said.

To do this, Paul recommended that companies own and establish their brand pages. This means leveraging on touch points like Facebook, LinkedIn, and the company career page to establish themselves as a brand.

Moreover, companies must also ensure that the application process is fast and has minimal friction in order to sustain the engagement of their candidates and provide an overall good experience.

“Jobseekers prefer to apply to responsive employers and recruiters. If X company has a slow application process, they begin to tell their friends and say maybe ‘don’t apply to this ‘cause no one ever gets back to you,” he remarked.

Also, given the traffic situation in the country, Paul suggested that companies today must allow flexibility in terms of work hours and locations for employees to remain productive and able to provide high quality work.

Other speakers in the session were of Eric Riego de Dios, HR Director of Baker McKenzie, and Grace Sorongon, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of John Clements Consultants, Inc.

The Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP) is an organization with the goal of consolidating and articulating the employer’s voice and interest in matters relating to labor, employment, industrial relations, and socio-economic development.  For more information, email hrmbsinc.bdd@gmail.com.

Kalibrr CEO Paul Rivera shares how to recruit, retain millennial employees at franchise conference

Success of a business begins with having the right knowledge and a thorough investigation of all business opportunities. It also starts with recruiting the right people into your company to ultimately create a great, solid team.

Kalibrr CEO Paul Rivera, was invited by the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA) to talk about recruiting and retaining millennial employees at one of the breakout sessions at Franchise Asia Philippines 2017, the largest franchise conference and expo in Asia, on July 19, at SMX Convention Center Manila.

Kalibrr CEO Paul Rivera at Franchise Asia Philippines 2017

In his talk, Paul discussed that with millennials being aggressive and competitive in today’s work setting, businesses must adopt a “marketer” kind of mindset in order to attract talent.

“You have to think like a sales and marketing person specifically for career professionals when you want to recruit millennials,” said Paul, adding that having a good recruitment experience and a clear vision of your company’s purpose helps with attracting qualified candidates to apply.

Retaining millennials, on the other hand, Paul emphasized planning out a growth strategy for your employees. Millennials, he said, love to work when they know their efforts create an impact and essentially help them grow professionally.

“Millennials like to learn, and what they often need is someone to be their coach or mentor in order for them to succeed at their job,” mentioned Paul to a room full of franchisees and franchisors from 7-11, Goldilocks, Army Navy to name a few.

However, while his talk revolved around millennials, he pointed out that businesses shouldn’t design their organization solely for the younger tribe. Instead, build a company culture that leads to all employees wanting to join, stay, and perform at their best.

Dr. Maynoll Montalbo CEO of Mont Albo Massage Spa also spoke about recruiting and retaining millennial franchisees at the Franchise Asia Philippines 2017.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

There are so many reasons why the holiday season is wonderful for many. We enumerated a couple of reasons what makes this season so special and gratitude topped our list (although endless food feasts came a close second). As the year draws to a close and everyone takes a bit of time to reflect on all that has passed, us Kalibrr folks felt nothing but gratitude for everyone who’s joined us on this journey.

We’re thankful most of all for the recruiters who’ve partnered with Kalibrr. You challenge and teach us every day. That’s why we decided to hold our first ever Kalibrr Year-End Appreciation Night. In the spirit of gratitude and good cheer, we gathered our partner companies for a night of good food and conversation.

Weeks before the event, as we brainstormed on themes and motifs, Julius (our Senior VP for Engagement) had an aha moment. Beyond the platform our recruiters see day in and day out, are the people and their stories. What better way to say thank you than by sharing the impact of the work we do together?

We set up a humble photo exhibit featuring work from some talented photographers right in the Kalibrr team: Dani, Chris and Kevin. The once bare walls of our marketing room were now decorated with portraits of real people and snapshots of genuine moments.

It was also a debut for our Kalibrr Love Wall, which we hope is just the first piece of a growing picture. Our designers and customer support team took the time to handwrite a handful of testimonials from people who got hired through Kalibrr. Just the thing to make us all feel warm and fuzzy. My personal favorite is: “It helped me not stop reaching out and looking for opportunities that I thought I would never try.” (Peter Alcantara)

Paul and Julius of course had a few words to share on what’s in store for 2016. I was also fortunate to share the floor with them to present some Super Recruiter Awards. This year we’ve been able to recognize a select number of recruiters for their use of technology in creating more efficient and effective recruitment processes. Sneak peek: There’ll be a lot more awards and awardees in the future. 😉

Friends from our investor, Kickstart, were very generous to sponsor our raffle with some Kickstart goodie bags.

If you were there to witness the evening’s festivities, another heartfelt thank you for spending your time with us. If you weren’t, we definitely hope to see you at our future events. 🙂

We’re very excited for the new year and we hope you are too as we have a lot in store for the recruiting community. It’s been an awesome 2015 for Kalibrr and we have our Kalibrr community to thank for that.

To customers, partners, investors and friends: Happy Holidays and Cheers to the New Year!
