ApplyToEducation and interviewstream, two prominent HR tech companies in the North American K-12 education sector, announce an exclusive partnership to improve the hiring process for Canadian school boards.
CHICAGO, May 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — On May 17, 2023, HR tech companies, ApplyToEducation and interviewstream, announced a partnership aimed at addressing the ongoing teacher, EA, and ECE shortage and enhancing hiring success for K-12 school boards in Canada. ApplyToEducation, the leading provider of applicant tracking/job boards for K-12 school boards in Canada, works with over 90% of Canadian school boards to help solve their hiring challenges. ApplyToEducation has now entered into an exclusive partnership with interviewstream, the market leading K-12 education focused video interviewing solution. As a part of this Canada-based partnership, interviewstream and ApplyToEducation will create unique offerings for all joint clients including a seamless integration between interviewstream’s video interviewing tools into ApplyToEducation’s solutions. This new partnership brings an even closer alignment for both organizations’ strategic focus on meeting the unique hiring needs of K-12 school boards in Canada.
“ApplyToEducation is committed to helping school boards find the best talent, and moving fast is a big component to doing so in this tight labor market,” said Mark Laurie, President and Co-founder of ApplyToEducation. “Adding interviewstream to a school board’s job board and applicant tracking system will deliver strong hiring results for school boards looking to lead in the hiring market.”
In recent years, K-12 school boards across Canada have faced challenges in recruiting and retaining teachers due to class size regulation, pandemic related retirements and early retirements, challenges with Canadian data residency regulations, cost of living challenges, and varying needs between urban and rural communities. As a result, school boards have found it difficult to fill existing vacancies, let alone new positions as they emerge.
By leveraging interviewstream’s video interviewing solutions within ApplyToEducation, this partnership aims to enhance the effectiveness of recruitment efforts in Canadian school boards. Moreover, it aims to broaden the geographical range of K-12 hiring teams’ candidate outreach, resulting in larger talent pools for Canadian school boards. It also allows every candidate that wants to apply an opportunity to present themselves as more than just a resume but as a complete person in the early stages of the interviewing processes. Last, this partnership ensures that all Canadian school board interviewing data is securely stored in Canada by using ApplyToEducation and interviewstream’s Canadian servers, meeting key security standards important to school boards.
“interviewstream is fully committed to helping the K-12 industry solve their unique and ever-changing challenges in recruiting, hiring and retaining key talent,” shared Monique Mahler, CEO of interviewstream. “We are very excited to be able to expand our efforts in the education industry in North America with this new partnership with ApplyToEducation, already such a respected organization in Canada.”
