Transcom piloting data analysis technology to improve recruiting process

A pilot project that Transcom recently conducted, using data analysis technology developed by San Francisco start-up Evolv, demonstrated the potentially large benefits of using a more scientific approach to making hiring decisions.

 “In the project with Evolv, Mr. Rae says, Transcom was able to hire fewer people — about 800 instead of a more typical 1,000 hires — to get 500 workers who were still on the job at least three months later. The big payoff, he says, should come in cost savings and better customer service with less worker churn in call centers.”
