WASHINGTON--()--Strayer Education, Inc., an education services company, today announced the launch of PathBoost. PathBoost creates scalable solutions for a company’s biggest frontline challenges: talent acquisition, retention and productivity. Through a suite of products designed for the pre-hire, onboarding and first-time manager experiences, PathBoost delivers scalable learning solutions with measurable ROI. The first product to launch is PathBoost|Hire.

PathBoost|Hire is an online pre-hire screening and skill development platform that enhances employer recruitment strategies and prepares jobseekers for specific job openings. The mobile responsive tool is intended for use by companies with a high volume of frontline openings such as retail, tourism, hospitality, financial services, automotive and other top industries.

“According to a recent Harris Interactive/Glassdoor survey, sixty seven percent of employers believe that retention rates would increase if employees had a crystal clear picture of the role they are applying for and what is expected of them during the interview and on-boarding process,” said Karl McDonnell, CEO of Strayer Education, Inc. “Additionally, culture and fit are increasingly important to new employees. PathBoost|Hire provides a deeper-level of understanding of not only the hard and soft skills needed for success, but also of the company’s identity and how it connects to the industry at large.”

PathBoost|Hire provides interactive, custom content in five key areas: industry knowledge, brand overview, core job skills, mindsets and behaviors, and interview preparation. Content areas are brought to life in a 360-degree job immersion experience that includes real-life on-the-job scenarios, thought-provoking questions, aptitude assessment and documentary style mini-films.

“Imagine that the job application and interviewing process are completely transformed,” said Sarah Puil, senior vice president of product development. “Rather than the sterile act of submitting your resume online and waiting for a call, job seekers are provided with a realistic job preview so they can learn more about the industry, company and role at measured intervals to best gauge their fit for the position early and prepare them throughout the interview and, ultimately, onboarding processes. Equally, hiring managers using PathBoost will be able to optimize their time spent on seeking and screening suitable candidates and realize their business results sooner by creating job-ready employees pre-hire.”
