If science does not invent things that improve life, then it is useless.

Our scientists have left their ivory towers and are here to invent new applications that improve the work of our Headhunters and simplify the lives of our customers. We are proud to present some of the main inventions that we use and continue to improve in our laboratories.

Some are software programs that we use to make our work precise and scientific, while others are method innovations that we adopt with our customers to solve the problems of contemporary Headhunting.

Our research and experimentation are constantly evolving, so don’t be surprised if this page is updated regularly.

"Continuous improvement. Every year in our laboratory we produce new software and components for our Headhunters and customers. The continuous optimisation of our processes and technology is another ingredient that makes working with us so successful."

Daniele Donnini, Technical Manager

Collaborative Recruiting,
the evolution of Recruiting.

We have brought our Collaborative Business Model to this sector and created Collaborative Recruiting, a solution that guarantees specialisation in every professional area. When selecting personnel, our Headhunters are flanked by an external specialist, that we call a Scout, who assesses the candidate’s hard skills. If the search mandate is in the Finance sector, the Headhunter will be flanked by a CFO. If the search mandate is in Sales & Marketing, they will be flanked by a Sales Director. Thanks to our technological platform, we work together with Scouts from all over Europe and we share with our customers the information we gather at every stage in our search.

Candidate
Design.

Forget long emails defining company requirements and which profiles to look for. We offer you technology that will change your experience of candidate design: a smart board on which we map out the company’s requirements and trace out its values and history in a visual format. We can only create the profile you are looking for once your company has been described clearly on our interactive board using visual tools.

Companies who try our candidate design method, fall in love with it immediately. Because they feel understood and they receive a clear image of the candidate to look for. This does not stop at the objective characteristics they need to have, like age and training, but also includes their values, professional expectations and character.

Hound,
our electronic sleuth.

If we find candidates quickly, it is because of our Hound, the super sleuth we created in our laboratories. It sniffs out candidates wherever they are, in traditional social media highlands, like LinkedIn, or in the undergrowth of niche channels, like specific sector forums.

As soon as it finds a candidate, it digs and digs and collects all the information about them that is available on the web. This is fresh, organic information that has nothing to do with the stale and limited material from the usual databases. And, above all, this includes passive candidates, not just the normal active ones found in normal ATS. This continuous collection operation allows our Headhunters to view a vast range of information about a candidate, including our own past relations with them, in just one click. The information is out there, in the prairies of the web. You just have to know where to look. And how to organize it.

Jarvis, the virtual butler

Every superhero has a loyal assistant. At Reverse, Headhunters can count on Jarvis, a software program created in our laboratory that helps them organise all their search activities. Our studies show that every mandate has a specific number of tasks Headhunters need to perform (between 36 and 57), and Jarvis helps them research several mandates at the same time without losing track of anything. It shows them the tasks they need to do every day, the steps in the process currently in progress, the people to contact and any other activities linked to the projects. So, times are always monitored and we can focus on the most important mission: taking care of personnel.

Mandate Tracking, transparent Headhunting.

When companies give us a mandate, they can then just sit back and watch us work, like in a restaurant with an open kitchen. Thanks to an attractive interface, in fact, they can view the whole work process and enjoy its progress in real time. The information consists of pure diamonds that we don’t keep to ourselves. Every day, our Headhunters speak with tens of people and collect information that is crucial to company recruitment processes. This is the advantage of our data-driven scientific method. Every mandate becomes a project conducted together with no secrets. We are not and we will never be a black box. There is absolute transparency in everything we do. It is an invention that was needed in the recruitment sector.

Job Reputation
Analysis.

We have created technology that we use to trace all the responses of our active and passive candidates during sourcing, and from which we extract interesting objective conclusions. How many and which candidates have we contacted? Why are some candidates not interested? What is their main reason for changing job?

Who are the main competitor companies and how much are they willing to pay for the same profile? In every mandate, as well as presenting suitable candidates, we provide precious data that reveal why certain ideal candidates have refused to even begin the selection procedure for the company.

Sometimes the answer lies in the brand’s appeal, or a misalignment of compensation & benefits. Other times the reasons are deeper and unexpected. Our Job Reputation Analysis is a tool that allows us to take a data- driven approach and inform everyone of key issues and opportunities. Including the company's top management.

"With Reverse you will never have the impression that you are "outside" our research, but rather that we are working in synergy as if we had always known each other. We are confident, too, that when it comes to new approaches and technologies, we are always one step ahead, even if we never lose sight of the human dimension that this responsibility brings."
