The Backstory

Our mission is simple: get the right people into their right jobs, to drive success at work.

It all began when I realized I hated work… Despite a career that included working with some of the best-known companies in the world, I found work mainly frustrating and unfulfilling.  It turns out I wasn’t alone. After several discussions with others it became clear to me that this feeling was not just a “me” thing, but a widespread problem affecting most people and businesses around the world.  It made me think “if so many people are unhappy in their jobs, where is the disconnect and why isn’t something being done to fix it?”

I set off on a journey to understand ‘why’ and to also find the right, exciting career for me. I tried to reimagine and explore new ways to view the relationship between people and work.  First, I saw a shocking level of apathy in the market – acceptance that we can’t do better – which I considered ridiculous. I met with experts who were using different pieces of information to help improve work happiness and performance, and it was really powerful stuff!  But it was also all over the place and needed expertise to deliver – so the information was being wasted. It was then that I had my ‘aha’ moment – my “spark” if you like – why couldn’t someone combine all this information together and make it available to everyone and for every job so that the right people could be matched in their right role and organization to radically improve the way organizations and people came together! The more I looked into this approach, the more I was shocked that literally no one was already offering this solution to businesses. Of course, the HR world has been undeniably and infuriatingly slow to evolve and adapt to a rapidly shifting workforce, but I knew this revolutionary solution would fill the most critical gaps facing employees and businesses today. It was just a matter of bringing these concepts to life in a clear and easy way that would have the best leaders jumping at the chance to use these insights to improve their work-force decisions.

And so, I found the right career for me. Together with an incredibly passionate and talented team of people, we developed the Career Spark platform to do success-based matching for people and businesses everywhere.  This revolutionary predictive analytics platform uses both science and data to successfully match people with the jobs that they will thrive in and helps business leaders to build high performing, more productive teams (of much happier people) in a clear, easy and scalable way.

Today, we are proud that nearly 5,000 companies and 1.5 million people have already joined us to help match the right people with the right jobs. If you’re fed up with the status quo and are ready to drive better people results with a modern solution that actually works – keep scrolling because this is for you.

Enter Career Spark.

People decisions are challenging... but they don't have to be!

As a business, you already have a mountain of data on what your employees or job candidates have done, through resumes, work experience, and company statistics.  You even know who your best employees are, but do you why they are so successful in their role?  Don’t you wish you just had a way to easily replicate them across your business without all the guesswork?

Well, you’re in luck, my friend.  We have created a ground-breaking technology that is so unique and so impressive, it’s going to blow your socks off.  Keep scrolling and we’ll give you the low down.

You aren't using the right information to make the best possible decisions about your people.

Isn't it time to change that?

Yes it is. Tell me more!
Easy, accurate and actionable people answers at your fingertips.

STOP GUESSING.

Our Process

The Secret Sauce

Our crazy smart team of computer nerds have come up with a complex predictive analytics algorithm, that can actually predict the success likelihood of every employee or candidate, for every role in your business.  Just think about that! No more rolling the dice, no more just relying on someone’s opinion and no more having to make your most important people decisions on limited data…..  just straight up factual, scientifically derived answers you can act on.

So you want to know the algorithm secret sauce?  Well if we told you, you’d have to start working for us!

Behavorial science combined with detailed data and insights

The How

The Career Spark process is grounded in accurate data and science, meaning that we aren’t just guessing or even giving you our opinions… we are giving you scientific results and answers all gained from your very own top performers.   Our system profiles your best performers to find out what their common success attributes are and generates a “Success Profile” which you can then use to compare and match against for all of your roles going forward.

Just point us in the direction of your top performers and we’ll help you replicate them, fast. 

Matching Made Simple

Once Career Spark has created a Success Profile for each role (built from the top performers in that role), Career Spark can profile anyone else for you, and predict how well that individual would perform in that job.  Each candidate or employee who is profiled for a role is given a rating called “The Spark Score”.  The higher the Spark Score the more likely that person is to succeed in that role, enabling you to actually start predicting success, instead of just guessing, or hoping for a good match.

Each Spark Score rating is split into 3 sub-criteria:  FIT (psychometric results), EDUCATION and EXPERIENCE, providing an easy way to see where the contributing strengths and weaknesses lie.

PLATFORM CAPABILITIES

The  Spark Score is just one of the fancy tricks our platform does on command.  The Career Spark platform helps you make better people decisions throughout the entire employee life-cycle by providing valuable employee insights, career pathing recommendations,  and in-depth development guides.  Best part?  It’s simple to implement and use.  Your entire company can be up and generating ROI in less than 1 hour and our self-serve interface enables widespread usage with no consulting support required.
