CONCORD, Mass., June 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Enterprise talent engagement platform SmashFly Technologies today announced a deep partnership with Aliro, one of the premier employment referral platforms in the world, and AliroVets, a first-of-its-kind initiative that supports transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses through a dedicated military community employment referral platform.
The partnership will include integration of Aliro’s leading referral technology into SmashFly’s platform and will extend to AliroVets — creating a unique way for SmashFly’s customers to build their own unique veteran referral ecosystem.
“As a U.S. Army combat veteran, Aliro and its AliroVets initiative are near and dear to my heart,” said SmashFly CEO Thom Kenney. “We’ve developed a really unique relationship with the Aliro team, and I’m incredibly excited to bring this product integration and partnership to market.”
Aliro’s platform is home to a community of millions of potential referrers and candidates, all with a diverse set of skills and experiences. The company also offers its proprietary AI, AliroMatch, to intelligently match and engage referrers and candidates with relevant job opportunities.
“Referrals are a much better way to hire — it’s as simple as that,” said Aliro CEO Bob Archibald. “They’re more cost-effective, quicker to hire, and have superior retention rates to non-referral hires. We’re very excited to work with SmashFly to make it easier for enterprise customers to make better, faster hires and create more opportunities for the veteran community.”
