OutMatch, a Talent Intelligence Platform that brings clarity to talent decisions announced significant enhancements to the OutMatch Platform that complies with the latest WCAG requirements, maintains leadership with GDPR, and improves native language detection.
Over 1 billion people, which represents 15 percent of the world's population, experience a form of disability, according to The World Bank. As businesses become increasingly global and more people enter the workforce, access and accessibility to the right jobs become critical for building the most robust workforce.
The OutMatch Platform is now best positioned to drive the strongest, most diverse workforce possible.
"At OutMatch, our mission is to match people with purpose," said Greg Moran, President, and CEO of OutMatch. "Meaningful, purposeful work should be available to everyone regardless of language or physical abilities, which is why we invest inaccessibility, data security, and local languages."
The enhanced platform includes:
- Automatic detection of local languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Italian (with more to come). Platform users need not set their browser language, OutMatch detects and presents the information in the default language automatically.
- WCAG compliant experience including high contrast mode, screen reader optimization, and keyboard navigation.
- Regional cultural norms for Europe, Latin America, and the Asia Pacific give employers greater validity in assessment results when candidates are outside of the United States.
- The dedicated data storage facility in the European Union (planned mid-2020) enabling global clients to choose where their data is stored.
"Employers worldwide are focused on accessibility as a key part of their diversity and inclusion strategy," said Robin Stenzel, Chief Solutions Officer at OutMatch. "Accessibility results in richer candidate and employee experiences. Not to mention, it helps organizations stay in front of the increasing legislative and regulatory pressures."
