- Hire by Google now offers an integration with Namely, it announced Thursday. The recruiting software said the integration became available to shared clients immediately, and should assist employers in connecting their HR and applicant tracking systems.
- "Once a candidate accepts a job offer, Namely automatically retrieves that person's recruitment activity and contact information from Hire — including their name, email, and phone number — and creates a new employee record in the HR platform," Hire explained.
- An HR platform for mid-sized firms, Namely said it also will release a Google Cloud Identity integration in the coming months. This will allow automation of provisioning and deprovisioning as employees get promoted, change roles or leave the company, the company said.
The Google-Namely collaboration is the latest update to a larger HR tech partnership trend, especially in the recruiting space.
Hire by Google, for example, already offers a Zenefits integration, and allows users to post jobs directly to Indeed, Monster and more. "We're focused on collaborating with best-in-class HR systems like Namely as we extend our recruiting solution to help companies hire smarter," said Artem Chetverykov, head of product marketing at Hire by Google, in a statement.
And last month, Facebook announced new partnerships with HR tech firms like SAP SuccessFactors aimed at improving its Jobs on Facebook offering. Last year, ADP teamed up with Slack to provide joint customers better access to payroll and HR information.
While the integrations of course require that employers be clients of both companies, the parties are hopeful that the advantages they provide will outweigh the costs. With Google's architecture, "we're speeding the onboarding process for HR, reducing even more burden for HR administrators, and creating a better employee experience from the initial interview to the first day on the job," Graham Younger, president and chief revenue officer of Namely, said in a statement. And in a market where candidate experience matters more than ever, research shows that can be a real advantage.
