Sekhar Naik has made a career solving problems in the marketplace. So, in 2012, when he stumbled across an area where there were fundamental inefficiencies – hiring – it was no surprise that his mind went to work. The problem, Naik found, was that the sheer number of people applying for each job today meant that all candidates weren’t getting a fair shot and organizations were missing out on some of the best talent.
Inspired to find a better way, Naik and a team of dedicated employees, buoyed by consultants from human resources and other related industries, worked for months creating VoiceGlance. In February of 2014, the product launched, with the hope of revolutionizing the hiring process.
At VoiceGlance, we like to have fun, but make no mistake; we are very serious about hiring. Our goal is to provide all organizations – small, midsized and large – and all applicants, regardless of their race, background or gender, the fairest and most merit-based hiring process possible. Or, more simply, we want to help find the perfect fit for both the organization and the applicant.
The People Behind VoiceGlance
VoiceGlance, like any successful organization, is a collaboration of forward-thinking professionals from all walks of life. At VoiceGlance, we emphasize collaboration and teamwork, instead of the hierarchical structures of yesteryear.
