At Personify, we know in the midst of an increasingly skilled labor shortage, driving candidate and employee engagement to ensure an organization meets its hiring goals is readily achievable. With the help of our partner, Peakon, we provide our customers with every aspect of our cylindrical recruitment strategy.

Peakon is a dedicated employee engagement platform. Its software collects data on employees’ feedback and helps our clients turn this information into effective actions. This Improves retention delivering greater profitability through less downtime and hiring costs.

Here’s how our partnership helps us succeed.


We begin our cylindrical hiring process by doing what we know best: recruiting.

Personify actively searches for candidates by employing a high-powered electronic campaign, one that’s much more robust than merely posting a job opening and praying someone answers. Our strategic partnerships with the world’s largest employment boards and networks, along with more grassroots efforts and passive recruitment campaigns, help us to find the best active candidates for our clients’ openings.

We built our business’s fundamental experience on 40 years’ worth of executive searching, but not just in the C-Suite. Personify’s capabilities span all job families and position levels, and as part of our recruitment efforts, we mine our mature databases of candidates along with identifying prospects currently employed with competitors. We know first-hand targeting candidates who aren’t actively seeking a new position but have the right qualities for our customers lends to delivering the best result.

This recruitment model allows for the flexibility to utilize additional third-party recruiting agencies in extreme cases of an opening having a niche job profile and an aggressive Time-to-Fill deadline. Personify still maintains a streamlined process for hiring managers and HR, even when candidates come from other sources. Historically, our RPO customers are only hiring candidates from those other agencies less than 5% of the time.

Ultimately the key ingredient to our recruitment process is the belief that engaging candidates on a personal level is an art form. Managing an organization’s entire recruiting function, though, is very much a science—one that we are continually working to perfect. With Peakon’s help, we measure every single step in a recruitment process, down to the individual keystrokes.


Peakon’s software gives employees a voice using a bottom-up approach, providing data that empowers managers to make actionable changes in real-time. These insights help reduce regrettable churn, make improvements (quickly) which help you foster a better organizational culture in a more efficient way. We use this feedback to learn our clients’ culture as if it were our own, creating a deeper understanding of whom to hire and where best to focus funding the best talent for our clientele.

Highlighted findings inform managers of team achievements, as well as providing them concrete data on the issues impacting their team’s performance. Making these insights Easily and regularly available provides managers with the autonomy to learn how to lead their teams effectively in their own time. With features allowing managers to respond or acknowledge anonymized comments, managers can quickly complete the feedback loop making sure employees feel heard. We like the versatility of the software because it naturally empowers every manager to take action and quickly understand their impact on their team’s engagement.


With Peakon’s help, we track trends and help our clients proactively manage their workforce to build loyalty and passion for their companies.

As Peakon’s partner, continuous feedback allows us to connect directly with the ‘pulse’ of our business at any time. We want to drive a better experience for all parties involved in the process of attracting and acquiring talent.

We chose to partner with Peakon for many reasons. One is their 90%+ response rate and minimal fatigue, even with frequent usage. Peakon can be accessed on a variety of platforms, from web to mobile, to its native app.

Peakon automatically pinpoints areas in an organization with the most significant room for improvement, giving our clients a head-start on action-planning and the most reliable foundation to base decisions.

At Personify, we know finding the right candidate comes from searching smarter, not harder. Our strategic partnership with Peakon assists us in delivering both measurable results and, most important, the perfect candidate.
