SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 20, 2019 — Beamery, a leading talent engagement platform, today announced it has received a strategic investment from Workday Ventures and it will join the Workday Software Partner Program.

Beamery’s platform combines Talent CRM, Talent Marketing, Automated Compliance, and a Connected Integration layer to enable enterprises to approach recruiting like customer acquisition — from outbound prospecting and pipeline building to targeted nurture and engagement.
Beamery’s technology enables companies to make smarter hiring decisions by deploying such things as large-scale data-mining, a 360-degree view of each candidate relationship, and machine learning algorithms to determine which prospects are most interested, in order to better nurture top candidates.
