Paradox Receives the Talent Solution Impact Award

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–Paradox, the leading Assistive Intelligence platform for talent acquisition and candidate experience, proudly received the 2019 Talent Solution Impact Award at the annual Recruiting Trends & Talent Tech LIVE! conference. The award recognizes the top solution in talent acquisition that enables stronger recruitment performance in business and drives industry market trends.

With a mission to be the most candidate-centric company in the world, Paradox believes that talent acquisition and talent management professionals should spend more time with talent, not software. Olivia, the company’s flagship product, is the AI recruiting assistant obsessed with improving and reinventing the candidate experience. Olivia allows recruiters to focus on what they do best, human interaction – while she focuses on experience, automation and intelligence.

Paradox’s assistive intelligence platform was selected among six finalists who were evaluated on three areas of criteria, including level of value to the recruiting function, ability to deliver on its promise, and the degree of innovation and market-leading capabilities. Finalists were evaluated by a panel of experienced industry thought leaders:

In addition to driving innovation in the marketplace, the award recognizes the value that Paradox brings to recruitment and the ability to deliver on its promise. Olivia’s assistive intelligence abilities have resulted in speeding up the hiring journey, reducing costs, and allowing more time for recruiters to connect with talent.
