OutMatch, a leader in delivering actionable predictive analytics to build world-class workforces, has been selected by Forest City Realty Trust, Inc., an NYSE-listed national real estate company, to provide pre-hire assessment solutions to improve hiring and retention, reduce operating costs, and enhance business performance.
Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Forest City owns, develops, manages and acquires commercial and residential real estate in markets across the United States. With $8.1 billion in consolidated assets, Forest City’s portfolio of exceptional office, retail, and apartment assets, as well as dynamic, mixed-use communities, is primarily focused in its core markets of New York City, Washington, DC, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
Forest City will use pre-hire assessment solutions provided by OutMatch to screen applicants during the talent selection process. The engagement will begin with a pilot program to fill maintenance and leasing positions at Forest City properties, and then be expanded to include openings for career opportunities across the company.
