Wepow technology makes interviewing productive, cost-effective, and more personal. The added capabilities also will strengthen companies’ ability to predict culture fit, employee performance, and career growth, while keeping top candidates engaged and moving forward in the selection process.

OutMatch has made a series of acquisitions in recent years, creating the rare ability to help companies hire and develop the right employees for the right positions — a talent acquisition platform with proven pre-hire assessments and data-driven insights that impact post-hire talent issues such as performance, learning, succession, and leadership development.
