“Revolutionary” recruitment tech platform established by LGBTQ duo promises inclusive experience
SaaS platform Clu, founded by life partners Joseph Williams and Cayelan Mendoza, has created an updated hiring process that gives candidates an “equitable and safeguarded” opportunity to demonstrate their value to organisations and get hired into roles in which they would thrive.
The pair’s reasoning for founding Clu was so that others would not have to face the same barriers to employment that they once faced themselves. Thus, Clu is built upon a foundation of “inclusion and empathy”, counter to more traditional recruitment platforms.
The software increases the amount of auditable and actionable data points in the recruitment process then uses a proprietary recommendation algorithm to match a candidate’s skills and other preferences to open jobs on the platform.
Clu uniquely challenges bias in the hiring process and removes systemic barriers to entry, such as cover letters and CVs. It “empowers candidates to demonstrate their technical and transferable skills”, preventing them from being qualified by what they’ve done, instead focusing on what they can do.
