Conversational hiring experience to drastically simplify recruiting hourly workers
21 April 2020 — Alexander Mann Solutions, the global leader in recruitment process outsourcing and talent acquisition consulting services, has announced the release of their first self-developed technology platform. Hourly by Alexander Mann Solutions enables organizations to hire hourly workers faster and with greater precision through a completely conversational experience from explore-to-offer, in a single built-for-mobile solution.
“Today, we recognize organizations are operating with a high level of uncertainty about the future of business and their people,” said David Leigh, CEO of Alexander Mann Solutions. “We designed Hourly with an eye towards radically improving the candidate experience for hourly job seekers, and now we’re seeing just how essential this part of the paid workforce is to the economy. Innovation has always been core to our business, and we take immense pride in launching Hourly as an enabling technology for organizations beginning on a path to transform processes and rebuild their workforce rapidly as we emerge into a new way of work in the coming months.”
The acquisition of Karen HR in 2019 served as a catalyst for the formation of the Product Division at Alexander Mann Solutions. Prior to the acquisition, our teams had identified distinct unmet needs within the high-volume hourly hiring market – a space where functional gaps often result in barriers to practitioner efficiency and an optimal candidate experience.

Highlights of the solution, generally available in May 2020, include:
- Technology purpose-built for hiring hourly workers: Hourly is designed specifically to ease the frustration felt by both employers and job seekers when it comes to hiring high volumes of hourly workers efficiently.

- A completely conversational experience in a single solution: This is more than just a chatbot or ‘bolted on’ recruiting point solution to a legacy process, Hourly reimagines the entire hiring workflow into a simple – yet, intelligent – conversation that supports every step from exploring roles to virtual interviews via Zoom and offer acceptance.
- Treat your candidates like customers: Hourly makes it possible to keep candidates informed and connected every step of the way, even when they don’t get the job. An embedded 90-second visual assessment, powered by a partnership with Traitify, personalizes the journey for both hiring managers and candidates.
To maximize client success in a highly competitive market for talent, the Hourly offer goes beyond technology alone to include a full programmatic media package combined with implementation services and live support for a truly seamless candidate experience.
“Research shows us that hourly workers feel neglected during the recruiting process and organizations do not have the right technology to support their unique needs,” stated Madeline Laurano, founder of Aptitude Research. “Hourly is providing a critical solution to improve efficiency, communication, and the
