Relode is a company recognized for its dedication to building a diverse and high-quality workforce in today’s challenging labor market. With two job openings for every unemployed individual in the U.S., as reported by the Federal Reserve, and workforce participation remaining below pre-pandemic levels, Relode understands the pressing need for a diverse team.
To address these challenges, Relode combines AI, automation, and human connection to provide customers with talent. Their proprietary technology connects employers with a growing network of over 4,000 specialized and diverse recruiters, leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to match candidates to requisitions. This comprehensive approach considers not only skills but also career trajectory, public job data, performance data, and proprietary information, ensuring the delivery of qualified candidates efficiently.
Relode’s platform has experienced substantial growth, with over 28,000 users across the U.S. and a 20% increase in new Relode Recruiters joining since 2021. This diverse team composition enhances their ability to access untapped candidate pools, supporting clients’ hiring goals and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI&B) initiatives.
Results from a recent demographics survey demonstrate Relode’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, with 66% of recruiters being female and 55% identifying as Black, Hispanic, Latinx, Latino, Asian, or Mixed. Additionally, 68% of recruiters are over the age of 35, and 62% specialize in recruiting candidates from marginalized groups.
Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic and intense market competition, Relode has achieved remarkable results. They deliver one hire for every four candidates submitted and one hire for every two interviews, showcasing their commitment to excellence. Despite a shift in revenue mix, Relode has maintained a 19% compound annual growth rate since 2019, with accelerated growth projected in Q3 of 2023.
Judges’ comments: Judges loved the concept of combining the power of technology with the advantages of a boutique staffing firm which can also deliver more diverse candidates.
