SAN FRANCISCO — Clara Labs, the human-in-the-loop scheduling service powering growing teams, today announced back-to-back coordination, a new feature designed to address one of the most significant pain points in the recruiting process—scheduling sequences of interviews.
Nearly 25% of recruiters spend over five hours every week on scheduling. Back-to-back coordination searches multiple calendars to quickly schedule a sequence of interviews while allowing the recruiter to remain in control of overall candidate experience and interview structure. By using Clara to schedule, send reminders, and manage follow-ups, recruiters can focus their efforts on building stronger relationships with candidates.
“We started Clara Labs to eliminate the stress of scheduling so that people can focus on building the meaningful relationships that are so critical to doing great work,” said Clara Labs co-founder and CEO Maran Nelson. “With back-to-back coordination, Clara is addressing a major source of stress that recruiting teams spend hours of valuable time on. And Clara is doing that without pushing work onto candidates.”
With the introduction of back-to-back coordination, Clara can now coordinate scheduling at every stage of the interview process from initial phone screens, to hiring manager interviews, to onsite interviews. Clara Labs also continues to add to its growing list of integrations, including Microsoft 365, G Suite, Zoom, and applicant tracking systems Greenhouse and Lever, to deliver a truly seamless experience for recruiting teams and candidates alike.
Since its founding in 2014, Clara Labs has been developing a sophisticated approach that combines smart software with a human team, giving recruiters the precision and efficiency of machine learning, and the professionalism and judgement of scheduling experts. Companies using Clara to handle recruiting coordination include Major League Hacking, Bitcoin.com, Coit Group, and Sourceress.
Clara Labs is the company behind Clara, a scheduling service that coordinates when, where, and how candidates meet with recruiters and interviewers. Clara delivers unprecedented efficiency and accuracy by combining the precision of machine intelligence and the judgement of an expert team. This human-in-the-loop approach ensures scheduling communication is always clear, swift, and professional.
Clara gets scheduling requests from your emails, automatically engages candidates and interviewers to get their availability, and quickly books the interview. Staffing agencies and internal recruiting teams are using Clara to manage all their scheduling-from booking phone screens, to introducing candidates to hiring managers, to setting candidates up with interviewers.
Clara Labs’ investors include Basis Set Ventures, Sequoia Capital, First Round Capital, Fuel Capital, and Slack Fund.
